Engine cut out with ABS flashing

hello,

My engine had cut out while i was driving with abs flashing on dashboard. Had to turn the key off and on, restart engine and all was OK.
Strange, i don't like that. since I have traveled 30 km and nothing to report.
To be continued tomorrow...

I was surprised to see this addition in my 'recent posts' this morning because i never noticed the original OP's comments from July and August 2012? It doesn't help that the videos have been removed :173:

Aren't the french bikes restricted in power by some device? could it be a problem related to that?


I'm always a bit narked to read someones 1st post on any forum being NEGATIVE about the bike i love but so far problems have been few and far between and more like 'niggles' really.

I drive a VW Crafter van  and that had a recent recurring problem where i lost all power and had to basically 'coast' to a stop on the roadside (bit scary on a multi lane carriageway) and by turning it off then restarting it i could carry on as normal until it did it again. After eventually taking it to the dealers for a check-up it was found that the fuel filter hadn't been changed for 51,000 miles and was clogged with a 'jelly' like substance  (diesel powered) and was restricting the flow to the fuel rail at which point the electrics were shutting down the engine to protect it!!!  New filter sorted it out immediately. This van is serviced at VW main agents exactly to the schedule but still some numpty 'technician' had missed doing the filter when it was due. Some of the latest Honda fuel injected motocross bikes initially had problems with injectors caused by fuel filters/injectors getting fouled by particles in todays crappy fuel. Tank neck filters and in-lines have become neccesary to keep the problem at bay

As for the latest gripe it seems like the same as the OP initially but i fail to see HOW you can possibly BEND the handlebar mounts?

Am i missing something?

Not sure what to make of this post. Bars seem solid enough to be. Why would I want to try and push the bars past their maximum?

I don't know of a bike that has straight bars after it has fallen over onto them - the weight of the CT will obviously bend them.

Please explain - especially what is meant by 'gently'?

Are you sure your not talking about your little boys three wheel bike here  :034:

I am sure that motorbike handlebars are under strict regulations from the ... how would you say ... road traffic act. As it is with brakes, tyres etc. ... etc. ...
