Do a search over on G-Spot. It has been done, and the process fairly well laid out.

Can I ask why you want to switch ? I took the GS out and really tried the brakes out for the first time a couple of nights ago. I couldn't believe how well the abs works.
I've always been dubious about abs on a motorcycle but not anymore, especially threshold braking with that pea gravel on the road.

I find that riding is enhanced with the motor running.



Servo brakes are weird voodoo..

Right on. Personally I would consider that an emergency situation - one to take every effort to avoid!
