    Question K1300GT brake fluid change Difficult? Different ?

    I phoned to check on having my brakes flushed on the 2010 K1300GT and was told it could cost somewhere between and extra $75 to $240 depending on the type of brakes my motorcycle has. I looked over the method of flushing brakes on the K models in the forum and found that it was lengthy but not difficult, if one follows each step thoroughly. If you know of a different type of brake system that was used on the K1300GT that would make it difficult, please tell me what I should be looking for on my bike and the steps that I would need to take. Thanks

    The later K1200GTs and the K1300GTs do not have the servo brakes and are very straight forward to do a fluid flush on. There's nothing really different about it than any other ABS equipped bike. The earlier bikes (pre-2008) had the servo brakes and those are a bit more involved to flush.

    I just did it yesterday. If you have a GS911, you can activate the ABS motor which will flush out any air and old fluid from the ABS circuit also. If you don't have one, don't worry about it.

    Will the GS911 operate the ABS pump on the K12S with servo brakes as well? I'm about to do a brake fluid change and want to make it as painless as possible.

    I will need to get a GS911, but I think they're a required tool if one keeps a bike a long time. Any recommended source for the GS tool??

    Thanks
