By getting them to clear the faults, they will also test the ABS unit in the process to make sure that you don't have a hard ABS failure.
I agree with everything Steve says. Before you take it to the dealer though. Check your battery output. Low strength can and will cause the ABS lights to flash.
Also, several years ago I had the dreaded blinking red lights on my K75SA. Battery was fine and I used a jumper wire to clear the ABS circuit of any false readings. Still no go.
I then decided to use a clean dollar bill to buff the sensor on each wheel in case it was dirty. (Old airhead riders, including me, remember using a clean dollar bill or business card to clean dirty points: same principle)
That was when I found my problem--and no it was not dirty sensors.
Dealer had recently put new front tire on bike and had installed the wheel backward on the bike! Sensor was on wrong side of bike from its mate. Interesting.....New dealer now!
