I want ABS and decided i would look for an 08 or 09, a like new 07 showed up on CL nearby would i even notice any difference really?? the thing has less than 500 miles on it he is going to send pictures and said it was ABS so we will see. Thanks !!

Garage
The '08 and later have 25W more electrical power available. The '09 has an all steel locking nut on the rear axle instead of a castle nut. That's about it for non cosmetic differences.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...nicknames.html

doubting that is ABS......

I talked to the owner of the low mileage Wee today, I asked so its a silver one? no its blue he said.....Hmmmmmmm. I dont think that blue and ABS go together. He said he would check on that for me.

he was asking 5200 , if it was ABS that would be about book non ABS should be about 500 less. Does that sound like a fair price ?
Thanks !!

Not likely

ABS= Grey. Its not a secret though. Theres a amber light in the speedo with "ABS" next to it. Blatantly obvious.
