Yep. ABS problem solved

I fired up the bike this morning – a cold start that previously was guaranteed to trigger the ABS warning lights – and the problem is gone.

It really was as simple as topping off the rear brake fluid reservoir. I have an unopened bottle of DOT 4 brake fluid in the garage for the next time it happens.

So it turns out that I didn’t really need to spend more than $200 for a new battery two weekends ago.

Oh, well. The old battery was four years old and I now have the security of knowing I’m relatively safe from battery failure and the nasty consequences that can go with it.

Besides, the Nashville dealer didn’t charge me for the shop t-shirt.
