    Hi all, Started the bike up (2008 XL700VA) this morning and noticed that when I started up the ABS light started to flash (18 times or so) and then as soon as I started moving it turned off. I rode the bike twice yesterday for around 40kms and didn't notice anything like this so it seems to...

    I bought one of the last Varas in 2014, made in 2011 I believe. I’ve done three long European rides (3K to 4K miles) and it’s been brilliant.

Anyway, I ordered some replacement indicators, to get to the front indicator properly, I wanted to remove...
