Problems with ABS light and loss of power


I have a 650 K8, I was riding along and everything seemed to be fine then I noticed the ABS light came on. Shortly afterward the back light on the instrument seemed to become dull and the bike stalled. I have recently had a brand new battery installed so it is not that but it does seem to be linked to power somehow and the battery not charging.

Has anybody experienced a similar problem or have any suggestions?

Thanks for your help.

My 2002 Goldwing slowly stopped running on a ride in 2015. Eventually it stopped and I pulled over. Had to get it towed home. During the slowdown ABS light came on and other warning lights. Would not turn over when stopped. The alternator had failed at 20,000 miles, original one. Your alternator probably failed too.

While an alternator is a possibility, I would first check for a loose battery connection. Then I would check the wires that run from the battery into the wiring harness. These are not the big battery cables but the smaller ones that branch off them. They go about a foot and end in a plug that connects to the wiring harness. Those plugs have been known to melt.
