Dealing with a internet bike "broker" who doesn't know if a consignment bike is ABS equiped.

So I'm wondering, from photo's can I see something obvious on the wheels to reveal this?

Or,... the VIN # I have..... would it tell me?

Thanks, dave

Ask for the actual model #. If it is DL 650 AK7, then it is ABS. If it is DL 650 K7, it is non ABS. The ABS sensors are on the right side. The front is just back of the axle and is an oval shaped piece about 3" x 1/4''. The rear is just above the end of the swing arm, inline with the axle and is similar in shape to the front one.

Also, the ABS has a light/silver colored ring on the right side where the ABS sensor would scan (inside the rotor). The non-ABS is black.

There is also an ABS light at the bottom of the speedo face. Only 650s are available with ABS, not 1000s.

The VIN plate will list the model number as DL650A (K7, K8 etc is not included on the bike itself).
