That's crazy - I see a pic in the post? It's on my web hosting... some kind of a thing with a security certificate? What browser do you run - chrome?

It doesn't seem to... did all of them have it? I don't need or want it - just more crap to cost megabucks if it fails! I'll look for it next time I'm at the bike


If it does I guess I'll have to change the brake fluid every spring?

You're gonna be one of those guys where we say Read the Owner's Manual. That's the Check Engine light.
All Gen2 & 3 have ABS. I wouldn't be without it. And you should be flushing and bleeding your brakes and clutch annually, ABS or not.

In this earlier post -> https://www.fjrowners.com/forums/1205459-post3.html there's a link to a downloadable owners manual. Please consider reading it.

The only time ABS has failed that I know of is from owner neglect. OTOH it has saved my butt more than once. Given the choice at purchase I'll take ABS every time.

I would buy a bike that didn't have ABS (and did in 2013) but I would prefer ABS like my last 2 have had. I would rather have bikes without combined braking than without ABS.
