Pre-Purchase Issues

Went to buy at 1299S from a private party today and on startup two warning lights came up and one did not go away. 1) The ABS light came on and stayed on during several runs; 2) a warning light with the triangle came on and went off after ride. Owner says triangle light is due to mirrors (front turn signals) being removed and abs light came on because ABS was disabled (but neither he or I disabled it). Does anyone have knowledge as to why these lights would be on? Thanks!

As soon as I bought my ‘16 1299 I took the mirrors off and have never had front turn signals, my CEL (the triangle with !) has never gone on

Pretty sure CEL doesn’t pop up for electrical issues like wiring not being connected(wiring not connected to an o2 sensor or tps is another story)


Don’t buy it.

It would want to be really cheap.
If it is then you can work though the faults.
Not many others will be starters with those lights on.

2 yellow lights are always on when you turn on the 1299 (triangle and abs)
they go off after you start riding (I think at 3/5mph)

Doesn't sound too promising, there shouldn't be any warning lights displayed

Since the seller was too lazy to put the bike into the best presentable condition for a quick sale.
Offer him a price your comfortable with...

I don't own a 1299, but this sounds consistent with any of the modern bikes I've owned (2016/2017/2018). Did you ride it?
