Both of these lights flash when I turn on the bike and continue to flash until I pul away.

I know the manual mentions the yellow light but not the red brake failure one.

Is this normal?
Yes, it is normal. Everybody's KGT does it and there is a good reason for it.

When you start the engine, the ABS sensors in the wheels look for motion. The ABS warning will flash in the dash panel until you start rolling. After that, it will switch off.

-> If it doesn't switch off after you start moving, then you have an ABS problem.

* ABS = Anti-lock Braking System
