Sadly for the Bavarians, you are not unique.Hey Fellow V-Stromers
Tired of all the maintenance issues with my beemer so I bought a DL650K7 with 8k miles 2 weeks ago and already put 1500 miles on it and liking every minute of it. Even better now that I put Richland Rick's peg lowering kit on it!
Agreed. My neighbor mentioned taking his BMW to the dealer for the ABS brake bleed. I've bled them on my FJR lots of times (w/ABS) without any issues. If I stomp on the rears, they still don't lock up. Besides, what does the brake fluid have to do with the ABS sensor anyway? Nuthin'.I've been hearing luddites bitch about electronics on bikes and cars for as long as I can remember.
Still not having any problems maintaining my bikes or cars myself.
I'm sure you'd get the same line from Suzuki about the ABS requiring a special bleeding procedure. I know they say that about ABS cars. Never had a problem bleeding mine manually.
