I hope to get some inste on the problem I discovered when riding my bike for the first time after performing a 23 install on my 2013 Street Glide. 1st off when I last rode I was rolling 19 front and 18 rear with no problems. I had already installed Ness 7 and 7 trees and Legend Axeo front cartrage’s for the 23. When riding yesterday everything started good. City riding was fine no issues lights or codes. On the hiway after. About 45 min noticed abs light on then 10 min later the security key was on. Then felt the bike start dragging like brakes were applying. Front brake handle hard as a rock at this point slow down a bit using front and rear brake it seemed to release and return to normal other than the lights. I stopped and removed abs fuse thinking abs was trying to apply brakes seemed to solve problem for 1st 20 min then it all started again. I looked down and looked as if front pads were glowing but rotor was not. Grab front brake hard again slow down it went soft again this time like it had an open brake line all way to the grip. No leaks it does have abs with correct bearings. I am a master mechanic for 26 years have always done my own work but his has me baffeled. Any help would be great if anyone still reads the post on this form.

Working on that now installing a ness bearing for 23 only. By chance do you know the hub torque on a jade wheel?

I'm not sure if the 23 is big enough, but the increased wheel diameter on my 26 caused the ABS system to malfunction. You need to get the trackmax module to correct the issue.

I installed a. 23 bearing from Ness wrapping up some electrical and will know if it corrected the problem. Most likely it will since It was not reading a front wheel speed signal. All wiring checks ok.

So far so good with the signal loss of front sensor issue. Brakes are solid now no dragging or trying to apply.Now Getting an intermittent loss of serial data that I’m tracking down. Told the wife the bike is mad at me for not riding her for six months.

Well up date the ABS no signal was corrected. No ABS codes but both Security light and ABS light come on during riding throwing U1097, U1064, U1016, All serial data codes, also getting B1122 and B1121 Turn signal output codes have all Custom Dynamics lights and load controller. No codes while on the lift. I have spent the day looking for loos pins or serial data wire rubbed somewhere to no avail. Have cleaned all terminals and put Dielectric grease on them. Is it a good idea to put DIelectric on the ECM connector that’s where I’m at right now.
