I have 2002 LT. When turning the ignition key to the start position and then squeezing the front brake handle I hear a whine then brake lever will stiffen up which is the normal sequence. This seems to be the brake power assist kicking in. Is the power assist the ABS control unit or some other device? Does pressing the brake lever give an electrical signal to the abs/power assist or is it activated by brake fluid pressure. The reason I ask is on occasion when I turn the key to start position and press the front brake handle the lever goes soft and the red triangle brake light comes on, no power assist. I then turn the key off then back to the start position and everything works as normal. Brake fluid levels are good at both the rear and front reservoirs. Seems the problem only occurs during the first cold start and everything is fine on subsequent starts. Battery is good and fully charged. I even get the red triangle and soft lever (no power assist) even after the bike is started, but again only occasionally with the first cold start. I have not had the bike at the dealer to see if there are any faults being recorded, but that will be my next step, unless someone can tell me what to else to check.
