Yes only in the SE . Also some dealers don't usually carry the ABS model so you might have to ask the dealer to order it for you.

It is normal for your ABS light to stay illuminated after you have started the bike.

Only when you have begun moving and the ABS unit is receiving pulses, will the ABS light go off.

If you have begun riding, and your ABS light is still illuminated, you have an issue with your ABS as mentioned above.

That is what I meant, thanks for clarifying for anyone who misunderstood.

People should stop saying E10 is bad for these biles, it will fine as the user manual states, it will lean out by 3% but the default map is rich enough. and beside the higher octane in E10 will help if you have detonation issues and the ethanol will run your engine slightly cooler

This was super helpful when I was getting acquainted with my bike.

My 2014 manual calls for 86 Octane. I have been using midgrade - 87 Octane.
Looking at the compression ratio, I almost want to put in 89 or higher. Besides engine knock, which the computer should be able to adjust for, does a higher octane give me anything better? Has anyone used it and seen better mileage or anything else?
