Good idea. I'll look later. The Honda mechanic said he'll have a look at it on Saturday, to see if he can find anything else. I've known him for over40 years, so I think I trust him by now!

Ok good luck. Let us know how you get on, and what the solution was.   :028:

Hi. One hing I did notice apart from the Sensor length. The rotor on mine is flush with the disc. I notice yours stands a little proud. I'll see what  the guy says on Saturday. Thanks for your help,  I'll let you know the results.
John

Hello John. I will have a closer look at the pulser ring in the morning, and measure how proud of the disc it is. Yes it will be nice to know the outcome when you get it sorted, just to cure my curiosity.   :028:

Sounds almost as if it has ben (re)assembled incorrectly to be so far off.

Whilst not as simple, you can probe the abs service connector (dtc) and it'll flash you a code (using the abs light).  Expect "11" for front sensor malfunction.
Only do it right - no bodging please.   Keeper of the failed stator list.   John.

Morning John. ABS trouble shooting :-  ABS indicator stays on, indicator does not go off when motorcycle is running.  Check the ABS MAIN FUSE hasn’t blown. It is a 10 amp fuse in the fuse box under the seat.

Got to be worth a look if you haven’t checked it already. If it has blown, try a new one. If it blows again then obviously there is a fault which needs identifying.   :028:

Hi. I checked all the fues at the start and again a couple of days ago. All OK. Once I change the pulser ring and sensor I'll have eliminated a few  things which a start

Pulser ring sits proud of the braking surface of the disc by 1 mm. Rear is the same 1mm.

I thought this was solved on the third post. If the gap between wheel speed sensor and pulsar ring is out of specification (0.2 to 1.2 mm) the ABS warning light will come on. Firstly deal with the already identified gap issue then if the ABS light remains on probe the ABS SCS connector as jm2 said earlier. The method is described in the workshop manual and reproduced here

Thanks for the replies and answers. Problem now solved and light goes out!  The bracket was slightly bent, the Honda mechanic found it almost straight away. it's been like that since 2012 when it got knocked over so no one has found it before now!
thanks again.
