Brake Failure Flashing....again

This is the same scenario that happened about 4 months ago w/ my 2005 R1200GS.

Riding and the front brake lever out of the blue started "sticking" ABSI pump on. Constant whizzy. Then after several hard pumps of lever the switch stopped sticking and the pump shut off. After about 2 days of operating brakes like this the switch quit. The pumped stays active with switch released, when switch is activated pump shuts off. Reverse of normal operation. The first time this happened dealer replaced switch and cleared faults. Stating only the switch was bad. The switch in the hand guard that operates the brake light.

NOW. This has happened again. Since the same happened, and pump stays active with switch released and pump shuts of with switch active. I taped the switch active and brakes functional normally. No brake failure flashing, however a RED triangle on HUD. I got a new switch and this did not rectify issue. How to clear faults without GS-911.


Does anyone have a GS-911 in southern Maine, NH area?
