The Yamaha ABS (Anti-lock Brake System) features a dual electronic control system, which acts on the front and rear brakes independently.

Operate the brakes with ABS as you would conventional brakes. If the ABS is activated, a pulsating sensation may be felt at the brake lever or brake pedal.

In this situation, continue to apply the brakes and let the ABS work; do not "pump" the brakes as this will reduce braking effectiveness.


Always keep a sufficient distance from the vehicle ahead to match the riding speed even with ABS.

  • The ABS performs best with long braking distances.
  • On certain surfaces, such as rough or gravel roads, the braking distance may be longer with the ABS than without.

The ABS is monitored by an ECU, which will revert the system to conventional braking if a malfunction occurs.


  • The ABS performs a self-diagnosis test each time the vehicle first starts off after the key is turned to "ON" and the vehicle has traveled at a speed of 10 km/h (6 mi/h) or higher. During this test, a "clicking" noise can be heard from the hydraulic control unit, and if the brake lever or brake pedal is even slightly applied, a vibration can be felt at the lever and pedal, but these do not indicate a malfunction.
  • This ABS has a test mode which allows the owner to experience the pulsation at the brake lever or brake pedal when the ABS is operating.

    However, special tools are required, so please consult your Yamaha dealer.


Be careful not to damage the wheel sensor or wheel sensor rotor; otherwise, improper performance of the ABS will result.
