Everyone here with ABS should investigate a possible rear brake line failure at some point down the road. The cause is from the right oil cooler line crimp chattering a hole into the steel brake line. Cut the tie wrap securing the oil line to the brake and clutch line and move the oil line inward. Inspect the rear brake line for where the top part of the crimp contacts the line. If damaged, add a protective short hose over the line and replace the tie wrap.

Good idea. That rear brake line costs a small fortune here plus it took a month for it to come to the Toronto warehouse. Here's a pic of the culprit crimp and the damage to the brake line.
