OK, I know nothing of where some of this stuff is on the LT.
On the way home tonight, my brake failure light started flashing. No, I didn't notice if it went out when I started up. I'm assuming it went out as normal and then came on as I was riding. And no, I failed to note if it was a 1 HZ flash or a 4 HZ. I didn't realize that was important at the time.
I also read a thread recently where people were saying their brake reservoir had to be completely topped off the keep the light from flashing. I would think that since the brake fluid system is sealed, i.e. air tight, there shouldn't be any need to top it off unless it is leaking. Mine isn't leaking.
Things I checked.
- If with my handle bars locked to the left and I shine a light on the little plastic cap on the brake fluid indicator, I don't see any bubbles, nor does it look empty. If the level were low, where would I put in additional brake fluid?
- I just read the brake bleeding 101 article and someone else's comments that it looked like it would work for the 05s. I don't like maybe's or guesses. I need to know if it will work for my 05 LT. (BTW, I didn't recognize much of anything on those pictures. I wish someone would realize that more pictures are better, starting with an overall shot that indicates the general area, and then zoom into the specifics.
