    Default Another brake failure question.

    Bike was at the dealers for a repair. They told me I had a brake caliper sticking on one of the front wheels. I thought that strange as they seem to work fine and no code. Well when I got it back there was a code.
    What is strange is anytime the code shows and I increase the throttle just a bit, it goes out. Every time. Could it be a faulty sensor? Is there a way to check the sensor. And where is the sensor.
    Thanks for any help,

    What is the code? I’m trying to check the service manual.

    I don't see a code. Just brake failure. The dealer must have read the code.

    If you had it to the dealership and the code didn't appear before the trip there, get it back to them and they owe you the fix.

    If BUDS actually showed a sticky caliper, that is one thing. My Spyder has shown the brake failure warning and all that was needed was a couple of eye droppers full of brake fluid.
