you dont...there is an error code causing it to come on...have to code checked to determine the root problem. Once the problem is fixed, then message will go away

I never realized the GMT900s had that message or the brake wear sensors.

Here's what the manual says - doesn't say anything about pad wear sensor - don't think we have them.

SERVICE BRAKE SYSTEM
This message displays along with the brake system
warning light if there is a problem with the brake system.
See Brake System Warning Light on page 3-40. If this
message appears, stop as soon as possible and turn off
the vehicle. Restart the vehicle and check for the
message on the DIC display. If the message is still
displayed or appears again when you begin driving, the
brake system needs service as soon as possible.
See your dealer/retailer.

Not claiming they do....not sure. I know VWs do. And assuming gmt900 have a high probability of having them. If it was an ABS issue i would think an abs light would kick on. Just throwing out my knowledge of cars in general....very curious what the solution is.

The other day I got a message saying “Possible ice drive with care” or along those lines. I live in Florida so I did not expect that. Might not be relevant but I thought it was cool.

I've done my pads on the front of my GMT900, only sensor up there is ABS, unless they've come up with a way to figure out the brake lining thickness with an ABS sensor.

The BMWs have a sensor and the navigation screen flips out on you if you get the pads changed before it tells you to. Puts a big red X on the screen and they have to get out the German to English dictionary and call BMW. I just made up that dictionary, but it's funny.

The temperature had dropped to 35. I know to most of the guys that live up north that might not be cold but for me that is freezing. If the temp drops to 55, I wear a sweater.
