Front does not have a mechanical switch, it's a pressure switch in the ABS pump.  The rear however does have a switch, have your checked the rear pedal to see if the switch was damaged?

Thank you. Yes, Iíve checked the back brake switch and itís fine. Iím wondering if I need to clear a fault code (even though itís not currently showing). Iíve got a friend with the plug in diagnostic box so Iíll try that.

Can you post an image of the fault? Have never seen such a thing.
I also snapped my lever and the changed it for puig foldables but never had an issue but if the light is coming on or off permanently sounds like you have contact problem on the switch responsible for it.
I think there is a simple mechanical switch below the lever that actually tells (closes the circuit) when you press the lever - probably you have snapped it.

Had mine fail too. Replaced under warranty and failed again within 400 miles. Arguing with them again. Cost to pay for it myself. £1900 inc vat thank you.

F900 Series Main Chat / Brake light fault
« Last post by Banjoblue on Yesterday at 05:14:41 pm »
Overbalanced in the filling station yesterday and snapped the front brake lever. Thatís the only damage that I can see. Rode home after checking it over and a brake light warning came up. Just looking at it in the shed now and the warning light has disappeared but the brake light either isnít coming on or is on permanently - I canít really tell!  I canít see any wires from the front brake assembly so Iím guessing that it picks it up from elsewhere- maybe the abs module?

Any thoughts on how I can fix this other than another trip to the dealership?

Some enterprising fellow apparently named Big Al created this brilliant device to deal with this issue: 

https://getmccuff.com/products/mccuff

I don't think it quite commands the $19.99USD that Big Al expects people to pay for it, but it's at least evidence that you're not the first person to deal with this issue.  In some parts of the US (California for sure but also some others) the pump handles have vapor recovery collars that need to be pressed against something (or held back with your hand) in order to dispense. I always grab gas station paper towels to pull it back while I watch the fill level manually. Something like this would be nice if I could leave it at the pump, but I don't really want to carry it with me, even with its impermeable carry bag.  Some customers seem to like it though.

Well unfortunately the Ztechnik is a no go for me as well, horrible buffering at interstate speeds. It really does work well at lower speeds though.

I tried some riding without any windshield at all and still got some buffeting which makes me think maybe itís the hand guards or mirrors which someone mentioned earlier in this thread. I found that if I sit up straight with my head high I get no buffeting.

For reference Iím 6í2Ē (188cm) using Wunderlich bar risers and a Sargent seat which sits a bit higher than stock.

There is no published information that I know of.  I know because I can see the voltage values for the damper control change as you cycle through the three preload settings when browsing real time data with my gs911.  When the bike is sprung properly for your weight you can actually feel it too.

Gotcha, thx!

So true about the ABS, when it still worked Iwas always amazed by the amount of ABS icons on the tracked route.

Haven't had TC kick in so far, at least not when I'm not trying to activate it by getting the front wheel up. I'd like to have it kick in sometimes during normal riding to know how it feels and that it actually works. I just don't dare to wack the throttle mid turn and have the system take over...

Just to test it I made absolutely sure to activate the ABS, by massively stomping on the rear brake. The ABS works perfectly  :007:
