How can I figure out when the bike was manufactured? Have a 2005 GS that I bought going on 2 years now. Had 36400 miles on it when purchased from the dealer and now has 41000. (Yeah I know, I don't get out enough!) Had the tranny seal replaced by dealer prior to purchase. Brakes are ok but I find the fast blinking brake light will come on now and then. I shut off the bike and apply the front brake handle off and on and then it's fine. Think its the brake handle that is sticking. I can't say the brakes are wizzy but they do make a high pitched noise when applied. Enjoying the bike emensely compared to the cruiser I had. Appreciate the JVB video! Here's hoping for some more trouble free years.....
