VDS! Warning and my resolution
« on: June 02, 2016, 04:13:29 PM »
Whilst I was away at the weekend, just about to pop over the tops from Holmfirth to Buxton, my dash indicated a VDS! warning and all the rider aids like ABS and traction control were disabled.

Now, riding a new 160bhp motorbike without all those things did make me just a tiny bit nervous, I must admit.

I did find out what was going on, though - under the seat there was a blue fuse on the left hand side of the s1000xr bike that looked like it was working it way out. Re-seating this resolved all the issues.

Might happen to others so hopefully this is useful.

Top tip I'd say nice bit of information to log in the back of the old brain.
After over thirty years behind the bars, I’ve still not done it all or seen it all.
