Indeed a fault code is thrown until I cycle the ignition off and then on. I fail to see the problem here. Am I missing something?

My bike does have an ABS overide switch, however if the bike stalls the ABS is reset and I almost never remember to hit the switch again. When using the bypass the ABS is off until I decide to turn it back on.

Then when back on the road, it would require resetting the system to clear the fault. Not as simple as just wiring in a switch on the ABS power lead.
