    Mine seems to be broken, I get ABS/MTC failure messages after 300 meters. During those 300m, before the failure messages appear, the ABS works, then it stops working (front and rear).

    I went to the workshop and got the memory read out. It mentiones ABS failure front / rear and rear ABS sensor defective.

    On the parts manual it seems to be a short câble, but on the bike, it goes all the way up under the saddle.

    Its a $50 spare part, so I hope that it can be replaced easily.

    Ok, seems to be plug&play. The cable ends under the saddle in a plug just behind the air filter box. If its that easy, probably really not worth mentioning in the repair manual.

    Here is my latest update on the topic.

    Not the sensor is at fault, but the sensor gear. In my case it got slightly bend away from the sensor between two screws.

    Real flat, the sensor gear on the brake disk should look like this :

    It seems that this little extra space between the sensor and the sensor gear would create irregularities in the measures above a certain speed, in my case abt 40 km/h on the speedo, causing ABS/MTC to fail.

    Not a bad idea to take the extra time to remove the sensor magnet before you remove or replace the wheels. It can save you from damaging stuff while wrestling the wheels on and off.
