Re: 2002 1200lt
Lots of questions - most can be found with a little searching and from reading other posts. Lots of times the related posts at the bottom of the page will answer most of your queations.
As far as your level, if you have chrome around your mirrors - is is at least a custom. If you have an intercom & cb, you prob. have an elite.
Yes the brakes are touchy - they are power assisted. Heed the warnings to stop with the front wheel straight ahead, she is heavy and it is easy to lay down.
The ABS will flash until you reach a few mph. What is the other warning light?
You will have to give us more info. on "makes a noise" These bikes have a dry clutch which is a bit different than a wet clutch in that you don't "slip" it, use it like a car clutch - find the engagement point, rev and release the clutch.
