Hi all , the ABS computer has died on the k100 I'm selling :furious: , brakes work fine just no ABS , can i still get a blue slip without it working .
I would never sell a bike saying the abs was working when its not :frown:, have already dropped the price because of it:thumbdown:borders on the ethos doesn't it if a bloke believes he is parting with hard his hard earned for a bike with ABS--:yesnod:
Thats fine Ozzy,as long as the buyer is aware as the ABS sensors stand out like dogs--the bloke doing the blue slip may be required to do a brake check and after he extricates himself from the tar he may well say "the ABS is faulty MATE"I would never sell a bike saying the abs was working when its not :frown:, have already dropped the price because of it:thumbdown:
Better still has anyone got a ABS computer they want to sell !!!!
They should fail it but that does not mean they will.Looks like i didn't make myself clear , will they fail a bike when the abs is not working ,THAT is all Im asking .
Ozzy,I am on your side,tell the prospective buyer the ABS monitor is RS I wouldn't think a stat dec would be required--but the blue slip issue--I purchased a little diahatsu charade some time back for my young lad interstate and they went over it with a fine tooth--dust boot on a CV with a small slit--windscreen repair within X mm of wiper,the buggers cost me a large on minute issues,in hindsight had I not called them a pack of pricks the outcome may have differed.:yesnod:Looks like i didn't make myself clear , will they fail a bike when the abs is not working ,THAT is all Im asking .
20 years ago when i was doing rego checks i would have failed it , but now days they pass things that i wont passed back then !
I think you are crossing a line there by suggesting he removes the light, if the examiner misses it that is one thing and it highlights a flaw in the system but deliberate deception puts Ozzy in harms way IMO. SteveThe theory is with laws in nsw re blue slips is that if it is on the bike it has to work,however with motorcycles there is no brake test required as the examiner doesnt ride the motorcycle.If there is a light on or anything visual indicating that the abs isnt working i suggest remove it so as doesnt come to the attention of the examiner.Make sure the brake pads and discs are within limits and no movement in the wheel hubs,as an ex nsw rta examiner i hope this helps you get it passed with minimum fuss.Toecutter.

TOECUTTER650 thanks BUT no thanks. I do not want to end up in court .+1.
The OP is in enough trouble from simply being silly enough to post this thread in the first place. It gives clear indication that he knows that the bike is unroadworthy prior to sale and that he has to possibility dud the sale process if he can by obtaining a blue slip that may not accurately reflect the bikes true status.. This thread could quite easily end up as evidence in a court case at some stage in the future.
