    2003 K1200GT - Brake warning, ABS shutdown

    I had my first ABS failure that lasted about two miles running around town.

    No strange noise, no leaks seen, just a dead brake like an old 1960's drum brake power.

    Brake warning light flashing, so I knew something was a wrong. Nothing scary in particular. I was near home, so pointed that direction. A few miles later, everything returned to normal. Full brake power, power assisted front and rear. Continued my journey, then it happened again a couple miles later for a short 200 yards or so. Then back to normal. Weird.

    Temp 45 outside today in Chicago.

    GS-911 tool reports no faults. No faults to clear, No ECU engine complaints. More weird.

    I thought possibly the rear brake fluids were over the MAX and too full. Tonight I lowered them to the middle of Max Min line. Fluids were changed about 200 miles ago. Right now brakes are firm and strong. Front brake reservoir is full possible too high as I can't see a line in the bubble. I didn't lower that one but could. I know it is not empty just at the top of the bubble viewer.

    Air bubble in the ABS controller? Temperature change in the 50s vs 30s prior days? Reservoirs too full the problem? April 1st joke on me? Is this a common event?

    Thanks for your suggestions.
