There seems to be a confusion about the one or two brake fluid reservoirs in different model years.
I was also looking for the second (or dual ) reservoir from my ´05 but there is only one in mine and yours.
I learned this during my 60.000 km service as the tech showed the pictures:
the first LTs 99 - 01 (or 02) came with one reservoir
02 (or 03) -04 came with two (or dual) reservoir
05 onwards again with one reservoir
Now, don't ask me more specific questions on the detail differences but this has someting to do with the different ABS generations and integral or non-intergral brake systems of different model years.
BTW, I have the flashing ABS light syndrome as well. I topped the only rear reservoir, the bike was computer checked last Tuesday during the service and the only thing that was found in the log was "incorrect sensor distance" on the front wheel. When it was measured the gap was normal. When I rode away from the service the warning light was away fro two days until started again.
Bike has not been soaked, nothing abnormal has happened etc.
What is going on?
