    No not genuine, but decent quality after market. And opinions on the matter vary greatly, but no, as it's only the front lines getting changed it's doesn't NEED to be hooked up to the computer to cycle the ABS pump. As long as you don't cycle the ignition, you're not activating the pump, so nothing has changed. I just bled the brakes in the usual manner and they are fine.

    What Leeds883 say's is right, you can bleed the front ABS brake line yourself.

    Here's a Delboy's Garage video showing how to do it on a Harley-Davidson.

    Not really Stage II. It is enough for me and very rapid with low to medium high torque cams. In a straight line or for longer haul trips she is absolutely ideal. With the work I carried out lately she is almost looking exactly what I set out to achieve and the air ride system a pleasure. Little bit more paintwork/hydrographic 3D carbon dipping in the Winter and I'm done.
    Awaiting with eagerness the arrival next year hopefully of the Harley-Davidson 975 Streetfighter. Always fancied a Buell but fine low mileage examples are hard to come by. Hoping the Streetfighter will step up to the mark? If so current second bike will be history.

    Your bike is a 2016 and if it has followed the HD service routine on its 2nd birthday it should have the brake fluid changed.
    If it hasn't then I would look to have the changes made to the brake lines at the same time.

    That's a good point Andy. It had it's 5000 mile service just before I collected it (with 3500 miles on the clock), which was just before its 2nd birthday. Next service will likely be over 15,000 miles so I wonder if they change the brake fluid anyway? I tried to Google it but couldn't get any details: is there a service interval chart available? (I don't need a full manual, just what's due at each service. I've seen it in car owner's manuals printed at the back with the service stamps, but not seen it for a Harley.)

    Either way, I'll look to get the bars changed at next service & first MOT.

    Cheers,

    Chris
