Hi, the left comodo : light, turn signals, is not the oem one ?
I can't switch off ABS any more..
Yesterday went on a ride, about 1/3 at one of the sopps to take pictures I go back to the bike, the key is in off position, shut off button is on. I hold the ABS button, turn the key - the light flashes. I start the engine and after about 2 seconds of riding and the ABS light goes off - WTF?! Try again the same result. Unable to get the ABS off even after dozens tries later, it worked in the AM.
Both wheels/sensors are covered in mud. Could that be a problem? If not, how do I troubleshoot? It made some of the steep descents in the muddy terrain "interesting".
Never happened to me before. Thanks for your help.
After this stopped the ABS off stopped working:
Destination - after 490km
The new 690 is slimmer at the middle and front of the seat. That might help a little. And there’s always lowering the suspension.
Left combo is a plug and play unit from Sicass Racing. Phone call was required to get what I needed.
What are those blue and yellow velcro wrap things?
Cleaner than duct tape in case of emergency repair ?
You're saying I have all my info wrong? Gawdam
/End off topic.
They are there in case I need them. Like carrying zip ties.
Where did you find the colored ones? Link?
I have some in black but your's look a lot better.
I was just on a ride and had the same problem, except for the mud part. 2 days ago the ABS would turn off, now I can't get the ****ing thing to turn off. Ruined my 5am ride this morning. The bike is useless off road with the crappy freaking ABS.
Anyone have any ideas how to trouble shoot this? I don't want to kill my battery starting the bike every other minute.
Pull one of the sensors out and zip tie it somewhere. The ABS will fail its start up test. No ABS after that. I think....

Pull the fuse. It's one of the bigger ones under the seat. It's separate from the fuse box. Would give visual but at work no bike today
Thanks guys, after a bit of research, I found out about the fuse trick. Basically pull the fuse for the ABS pump.
Fuse is shown in the manual on page 147 or search for ABS pump fuse.
The low seat option for the 2019 690s from Seat Concepts is great- FYI
At a fishing tackle shop in Houston.
Why do you hold the button before you turn the key? ABS can be turned off at any time as long as you're not moving, I turn it off when I reach a trail just by stopping on the side of the road and pressing the button, don't even need to be in neutral...
Interesting - I tried that when I got the bike and it never worked for me. Had to turn the key off and on.
Removing the ABS fuse is a nice trick - thanks
But any idea how to actually troubleshoot the issue? The ABS button still works (the light flashes) so WTH is going on? I would understand if something failed and the ABS would not work. But this way it seems way too strange.
The whole circuit is pretty simple. Assuming the interrupt disks are still in place, front and rear, make sure the sensors are clean and the interrupt holes are clean. Next, check the obvious cable/connectors for pinching or open line. Somewhere on this thread there were some that just 'offset' the rear sensor with a couple washers. That's enough to make it not pick up. A broken wire will do the same.
