    Question ABS on/off switch for R1100SA?

    I'd like to install an on/off switch for my ABS like the GS has.
    Anyone done this to a road model like the S?
    I'm looking for part#'s and where I couuld splice it in if this is possible.

    Maybe the left handlebar cluster from a GS would be a start. It has a button to disable the ABS.

    Why would you want to disable the ABS on a street bike? Are you backing it into corners Colin Edwards style?

    Some bikes. Some with motors, some without.

    Funny you should ask that question...

    It would be an alternative for aggresive riding, particularly for track days for instance.

    I tend to use alot of back brake from my dirt riding days, and I have gotten hot into a short straight and started to back it in a bit.
    Surprise! The ABS kicks in and you are straight up and headed off-road...

    I seem to recall a rocker switch on older bikes like the K75S?

    I think it's an ABS reset. We have that swtich on our 94RS.

    But yeah, the GS has a switch to turn the ABS off for offroad riding.

    My new '04 RS allows the rear brake to be used independant of the front, I like that . I am looking forward to a track day or two this summer.
