ABS Question.

I have owned my 09 for nearly 2 years and never had to lock up my brakes until the other day. I know the ABS keeps the tires from locking up by pulsating. That did happen, and since that my front brake seems like it is pulsating during normal braking.

Has anyone else had this and what to do. Just seems weird to me.

It could be your front rotors are warped. That's a known problem. It's covered under warranty.

I have had my ABS kick in once or twice, but never during normal braking. I agree with the other post. Sounds like warped rotors.

ABS Question.

Rotors are new. Just put them on recently. It does not happen all the time, seems more at medium to heavy braking.

Hmmm, I'm at a loss then, unless it's something with the ABS system itself. My glide is the first bike I've owned with ABS, so I am far from an expert. Bad as I hate to say it, may be something that needs to go to the dealer for diagnosis.
