new-bee, about to buy a k bike, a few questions

Hello, new to forum (1st post). Looking to buy a used k1200s..... saw it in person and it looks and sounds great. The brake indicator light (red) is on at the time of warm up. The owner stated that it is always on and does not go away until you use brakes. Sounded odd.... but I figured I ask the people who know.

Also, ran the vin through the decoder and did not see ABS as an option. this is 2008 and my understanding is that ABS is not standard but an option.

The bike has the extra internal slotted circle inside the fron left roter. Is that not ABS related part?

Please let me know.

The warning light should go away after you have driven several yards
