The problem with the -04 is that it has a servo pump to power the brakes.
Works well, and gives awesome stopping power.
However, it is an electrical pump, and it is doomed to fail some day.
A new one costs in the order of 1500 euro.
In real terms: If it fails you will end up converting your bike into a non-ABS bike.
And who would want a non-ABS bike?
For the 1150, the 00-02 models are the best.
For er 12GS the best ones are the 08-09 models.
