    Check if the rear brake is actuated when you squeeze the front brake lever.

    Or look at the hydraulic lines for the rear brake. Is there a line from the pedal to the caliper or does the line from the pedal go up under the tank with a return line running back to the caliper?

    Thanks! I know the bike has rear ABS, which the hydraulic line routing confirms, but no caliper action is visible. Need a way to raise the rear wheel, or to let it spin….

    Still seems like there should be some easier way to know, maybe I need a shop manual….

    How about the serial #? My ’99 GS has an A after it (as in GSA #####) to designate ABS. or so I am told. A dealer should be able to tell you if that is true.

    The [B]only[/B] ABS offered on the R1200R is integral ABS. If you know that the bike has ABS then you know it has Integral ABS.

    Are you then asking “is it version 1 or version 2”? Turn on ignition. Squeeze brake. Do you hear the whine of the electric power assist motor? Yes: you have version 1. No: you have version 2.

    Very interesting.

    The bike has a “braking failure” light in the upper left which flashes until one starts rolling and there is no electric servo motor noise when squeezing the brake with the ignition on but the engine off, so I’m presuming it must be Integral ABS version 2.

    The original intent of my question was something like a serial number mapping my insurance company could use to give ABS credit, but I understand that is not possible.

    So Thanks!!

    The Integral ABS II is listed as an $1100 option on the R1200R.

    Does anyone know how to confirm whether it is actually installed on a used bike?

    Thanks in advance!!
