    Easy to have the tyre fitted wrong way on the rim, then put the wheel into the forks according to the tyre - meaning the signal isn't picked up by the sensor.
    I always draw a big arrow of rotation on the discs when changing tyres! Not so much of a problem on the back wheel... the sprocket's a bit of a clue.

    I know. It was a good tip.
    I was expecting for a professional to know how to mount the tyres and put back wheels. I was wrong though.

I had two falls both with zero speed an stuck in the mud(clay). I had the ABS turned off during the time we went off-road and we we hit the gravel again i turned it on again. After a few kms the ABS light went on and deactivated the ABS. I had the bike checked and the fault was "ABS INNER VALVE FAULT". Manual says i should replace the unit but it is very expensive as you all know. I cannot understand what happened to the unit because the bike fell very smooth and in the mud so it is impossible to broke something in it. The funny thing is that if i drive for a few kms(20 for example) and turn the bike off and start it again the ABS works again!!!
    I am thinking of replacing the unit with a BMW 650 unit but i want to be certain that it will work so i am asking the guys that fitted one to their MK1 bikes if they had any problems??
    If anyone has an idea how to fix the problem please share your thoughts!
    Hello fooks,

    greetssss 🎅🏼

    For the ones that are following this ; Near the Aprilia Dealer, there's no ABS module communication with the diagnostic , harnes/cables cheque are o.k. , conclusion: ABS unit defective .

    Are you certain the sensors are OK?

    If the ECU is not getting input from the ABS there may be a more simple solution.

    Under your rear seat in the tool compartment is the 10 amp ABS fuse. This could be blown or have bad connections. I have had fuses fail that otherwise look pretty good - but swap them out and voilà - all is good.

    I just started my bike several times - one cycle I pulled the ABS fuse and indeed the ABS light stays on. Put the fuse and and off it goes.

    I have not read all your posts - just sometimes the gremlin is hiding and I would check all those fuse connections and points - if the fuse or connection is wonky - it will throw the light.

    Now all that said - my pin connectors for the ABS fuse don't look great - and I'm coastal but not wet - however have noticed the bike is starting to oxidize everywhere - so just a thought.

    For the price of a new ABS module might as well part out the bike.

    Honestly I've never looked very hard at the ABS system - I have the wiring schematic printed out on my wall poster size and noticed the ABS ECU has a separate diagnostic plug too.... Heck I have no idea where that diagnostic plug is even at....

    However having fixed stuff that was not broken before - I try to take the very simple and methodical way and if there is any chance the fuse or fuse connections have a fault - I'm going there first - even if I re-wire the fuse just to check.

    And yes, at 3,100 for a new ABS unit, a bit of black tape over the light would do the trick for me.

    This thread http://www.apriliaforum.com/forums/s...ponord+abs+bmw relates to installing ABS on a caponord and it used a BMW F650 ABS module as they are apparantly very similar. A quick look on eBay shows loads of the BMW units at very cheap prices, it could be worth trying one of these if your module really is toast as a much cheaper option.
