Re: 2005 k1200lt abs questions
Yes to the top of the "white ring". That is actually a filter screen. I remove it and pull off old fluid before a flush, then replace it for the fill. To do the fill correctly on the 05 and up you need to have the caliper pistons fully retracted when you set the level in the reservoir. That way when you do get the wig-wag warning light it means your pads are about worn out. These reservoirs are not as sensitive to low level as the early bikes are.
But don't worry if you did not have the pistons back when you set the level. Just be sure and pull some off before you push them back for a flush or pad change or you will overflow fluid out the vent.
