    Flashing ABS light

    when my abs sensor went, it started with intermittent flashing. then progressed to always on and regular (non abs) breaks. after the sensor was replaced everything was back as it should be. i don't remember the cost, but it wasn't alot. derek

    lost my abs

    well i've lost my abs. i've been expecting shit to happen since they didn't total it after i was rear ended at 50 or 60 kph. does it make sense for it to fail after hundreds of km post wreck or is this just karma not quite even with me yet? derek

    What's that brown goo?

    when my 04 was young it did the same thing. it was a seal. no big. warranty fix. i would make sure it's exiting the hose and not just dripping on or near it, then look closely for the highest point you can see the oil. derek

    Tire advice

    when you concider the small cost of the front avon and the miles you've put on it, why not have that all new rubber feeling? i change my avons togather always. mind you, it's a nuisance for me to arrange transportation to and from my dealer so i don't want to double the trouble. derek

    Wimpy Kickstand?

    the second time i rode my fjr i stepped off after kicking the stand. once the bike has fallen to the midway point there is no stopping it. turns out that the stand sometimes comes back up with my boot. i've compared it to several other fjrs and mine is very sloppy. my mechanic never lubes it...

    "over the top" refers to what you may know as "from outside in". if you have your hands too far in front of you at the top and you bring them back in close to you through your down swing, that's over the top. so was alot of this thread. derek
