Re: Going to have a look at an '05
From what I've read, even if the ABS system fails ( dashboard lights start to flash ) your brakes continue to work correctly, except that they are not ABS.
The fix is either black tape or a new ABS unit. Occasionally my 02 lights flickered and that just meant that one of my brake fluid tanks was a tad low.
MY only hesitation on an 05 would be the power center stand, but that is just me. Here where it is flat, I find the extra weight, hydraulics and electronic unnecessary. Another reason for me to love the K1600GTL, but that's another thread.
12 K1600 GTL
02 K1200 LT (gone but not forgotten)
