thanks folks. to be clear, this is not just the ABS light flashing quickly, this is both the ABS and general warning light alternately flashing slowly.
I read about the low brake fluid possibility in the owners manual and thought that might be it. curiously, I also found in the manual that when starting the bike, the ABS light flashes quickly and the warning light stays on solid for a few seconds as it self diagnoses. The manual says you should not start the bike until the warning light goes out and the ABS light changes from fast flash to slow flash. You should also start the bike without the brakes engaged which I didn't know. With the hills around here its not uncommon to start the bike with the brakes engaged, so I'll have to pay more attention to that situation.
quick question, when checking brake fluid levels, I'm assuming you should have the bike on the center stand, on level ground and for the front brake you should turn the wheel full left so the reservoir sort of level offs? the levels are currently in the middle of the bubble on the front and between min and max on the rear. I'll pick up some fresh fluid this weekend and top them both off.
