990 ABS question

Read through the how to install an on off switch for the ABS on the 990. Mine is an 08, installed the switch by cutting the white wire and running the two wires from the newly installed switch. One wire to each side of the white wire. Problem, no matter what position the switch is in the yellow ABS light stays on? Turn bike off and restart, same thing? What am I missing? There were two wires one black/white the other white, does it matter what one I cut? Thanks

Normally light is on when the bike is started and goes off after riding a bit.

I tried starting it and putting it in gear but the light still didn't go out? I will put it back together tonight and take it for a ride? I was thinking the light went out when you put it in gear, but maybe it isn't until you are moving?

The light goes off once you're moving, let's say 5-7 km/h. Give it a try.

Thanks, I will try it tonight. I'm just over thinking it, trying to remember how it worked before. I new I should have finished putting it back together and ride it before I posted. Thanks again...

Do someone have the link to the thread for putting a switch on the ABS? I looked at my abs unit and fmr there are a lot of wires to choose from.

Thanks

Follow the black wire that goes to the rear wheel sensor back to the abs unit and cut it to splice in a switch (that you could install on the dash). That rear wheel wire sleeve contains two wires. You can cut either one of them.

Keep in mind the wheel has to rotate a bit before the light goes back off. I have a switch on mine. It's a push button type located below my seat on left side. It was installed by previous owner. If you like I can snap a few pics of how it was done. Works great btw.

Best mod ever, very easy! The links above have all of the info you need. No more forgetting to turn off the abs,only to remember while going into a dirt or gravel corner expecting to use the nonexistent rear brake to turn! Had some close calls before this mod!
