ASC/Stability control for the k1300s?

Howdy Folks -

Fixin to pick up a K1300s here soon, have my eye on a local 2010. Most of the current bikes on cycletrader, craigslist and other used sites don't seem to be equipped with ASC.

How common was this option among the K1300 series?

I rode an S1000XR demo bike the other weekend at the local shop. Tricked out with all the advanced wheelie control and such. Was quite fun knowing at whatever gear if you wanted to whack the throttle, if desired the bike could keep it's nose to the pavement. Really enjoyed the ease of handling such great power.

Plan on using this bike for the weekend speed blasts up the mountains of AZ and around. Probably with a passenger on weekend over night trips. I am quite a speed fiend, and this will be a great break from my GSA.

With this considered, how imperative is it to have an ASC equipped K1300s for the weekend warrior canyon carving and two up sweeper days?

Inquired with the sales guy at the local dealer. Adding ASC is a $300 software upload . He was able to throw that in with the purchase of the bike. Riding stupid powerful bikes with more confidence!

You need it, if it doesn't have ASC it can be added at the dealer on a K13. I"ll give you my recent experience on my 2005 K12s, took it into the dealer for the rear wheel flange recall before Spring goes into full swing. I had an oil leak that appeared in December, tighten the valve cover and it appeared to stop, all garage tested.

Came up to a red light just a block from the dealer, stopped at the red. On green I proceeded the right turned on green. Half way thru the right turn the rear wheel broke loose for a couple of seconds then grabbed throwing me into a whip, thought I was going down but didn't, lucky...these things have lots of power, I was only accelerating as normal. Pulled into the shop and they quickly noticed a slight oil spray down the right side.....lucky I didn't loose it in the turn, my neck was sore the next day.

I can imagine where I'd be if I got the green........

Quite surprising what some slight break loose can do......my 1300gt has ASC. A couple of days later I thought about it and if the K12 has ASC it would have been a much more controllable situation......non event basically. If I could I would have it installed on K12s but a 2005 can't take the upgrade........anything 2007 onward can....

My 2 cents.....
