Brake fluid indicator issues
Got my 2005 LT back from the dealer and at my next ride I routinely checked the brake fluid indicator on the handlebar reservoir. No fluid level could be seen at all, no matter how I moved the bar, center stand, etc. Everything seemed OK with no warning lights, etc.
I took it back to the dealer, who said that they probably over-filled it during the servicing. Then he said that in fact they do not routinely drain and refill "that part" (the front part?) of the brake fluid reservoir, only the "rear part" but maybe in doing so this put pressure on "the front part" resulting in over-filling. Anyhow, he drained a little fluid and now the fluid level is readily visible in the handle bar indicator.
Finally, he said it is really the rear indicator you should watch, the one inside the right side bag which requires removal of the seat to properly see.
I'm no expert, but this whole explanation left me skeptical and a bit confused. Can anyone clarify???
