Hi Folks,

I have a 12 plate 990 Dakar for which I have recently had to change the battery over for a new one.

The new battery has been in for just over a week and then i went away for a long weekend in the car and upon my return the battery was flat and would not even light up the ignition lamps!

Optimate 4 to the rescue, which worked, but I now need to cure the parasitic current draw. I've had the multimeter on the bike this afternoon and established it's the ABS circuit! :confused:

Now what are my next steps?


  • I don't want to use Fowlups in Bristol because the bikes likely to come back with more wrong with it than right? Sorry bad experiences with them and don't trust them anymore!

Has anyone else experienced similar issues?

Looking forward to hearing from inmates with helpful suggestions.

regards
James

Disconnect everything in that circuit and reconnect 1 by 1 to see what's drawing the power, bingo.

Your not the first to not rate Fowlers, doubt you'll be the last

I have seen an ABS switch/lamp assembly literally melt in front of my very eyes due to an internal fault.
