Glad it ended ok. Is that wire under the front fender ?
Seems a dangerous place for such a critical item ? Should a stone , road debris etc clip the wire , the brake won’t operate correctly .
Am I misreading the pic ?

you need any wire for the ABS sensor. Bluetooth or wifi is not implemented yet.:RE

This is interesting. I moved my wire away from the underside of the fender last year for this very reason. Mine now runs down the backside of the brake and wraps around the side of the lower fork leg.

I did the same for the exact same reason. And also for using race glass fender which has more room for tire warmers. The OEM fender/wire setup does not work well with warmers. Mine broke a couple of tabs off the wire holders.

Everyone knows you need a wire smartarse. I asked if itís under the mudguard where the tyre runs. Normally it just follows the brake line.

Just to clarify:
The leaking fluid came from the wire getting rubbed by the tire? Or somewhere else is leaking?
Picking mine up today and want to make sure I'm not a crash test dummy.

The leaking fluid was from brake fluid reservoir up top and had nothing to do with the wire rubbing through on the tyre. Its a know fault apparently.....

As others have mentioned I have re routed that sensor wire as well if you use tyre warmers for track days itís an essential mod to do .
