Went for a burn this afternoon in the Sun and found that the ABS has been very keen to engage. OK so i was heavy braking but this is a dry road and in a straight line, i didn't think ABS worked like this ???

Any thoughts or ideas before I call the dealership !!

It is a ZR160 with only 1066 miles on the clock !

So far I've not got the ABS to kick in in the dry (3800 miles so far).

Its kicked in once or twice in the damp though.

If its coming in that keenly it may be worth having it checked.

I thought it might be worth getting it checked. I think the back left is binding aswell. Whenever I reverse it from the garage it sounds like it's still slightly on. I will give the dealership a call tomorrow ans get it booked in.

Thanks for the info !

My ZS does this as well! Only at low reversing speed and first thing in the morning. Could be that the brake calipers are not returning properly when the handbrake is left on for any period of time. Try leaving it without the handbrake on in the garage overnight and see if its the same.
