Default Brake Failure ABS lights after intalling forks

I went out today on my first ride with my new suspension. Unfortunately, my brake-abs light does not come off. I fit the abs sensor as indicated am I missing something? I recall a small black fastening plate on the OEM forks that no longer fits on the Ohlins. Other than that I have no other clue.
Help please.

I'm not sure what ohlins you have but mine had the little black plate and it fit the left fork fine, then make sure you have the pickup sensor fitted correctly and tight.. Lastly, and most importantly....make sure the abs ring is on the left side..I actually went out for a quick spin only to relies the abs light would not go off either..only to notice the wheel was on back words. Lol
