I'm in the market for a used naked 1200r or possibly a gs since there are so many more gs available. With a budget of <$10,000 I'm looking in the '05 - '09 years, the gs would definitely have the servoAssist ABS whereas a naked R could have the integrated ABS. I understand the engine has to be running for the servoAssist to function AND they have to be bled religiously. With a used scoot I'm requesting service records and checking frequency of this service. Are the servoAssist that "bad" or is it just a 'get used to it' issue? Avoid at all costs? Buy with my eyes wide shut and pray they don't go out? Interested in opinions which just like derrieres are plentiful.
Thanks;
TonyD

From its introduction in 2007, if an R1200R came with ABS, it was the Integrated ABS system. Rs have never had the servo-assisted brakes.
