Burns,

Just an FYI, these will work on other BMWs also. I know for a fact the F/G650GS single, the 650X and the R1200GS ABS systems can also be disabled if the front speed sensor is disconnected (switched off). Yes it will throw a fault and turn on the warning light but that will go away when the sensor is re-connected / turned-on.

Now I just have to figure out a good switch to get.
Preferably one that is water resistant and mounts to the handlebars, or nearby.
Thanks for restarting production!
You might like these switches.

If so, do you have a picture of it on your bike?

I had their top plate, so I mounted the switch much like the red switch here. +50K miles and no issues with the switch!

problem with light staying on

Hello,

Can you please advise if i have something wrong.
I got you switch and wired it to a simple on of switch.
I start the bike and the light on the dash stays on solid red, when i flick the switch it does not change. I presume the ABS light should go out?
Please advise if something may be wrong.
Cheers

ABS Light on, engine running
Press your "Simple" switch
Turn bike completely off
Start bike up
ABS light should be off


Just a thought: is your "simple" switch an on/off button vs a momentary switch?

I will give this a try when I get back from my week on the bike.

My switch is on/off . Should it work ok or do I need to change to momentary ?

After putting some miles on mine. Momentary would work too. All Personal preference. With on off you can just leave it off all day. Momentary it resets when you turn your ignition back on. all in all a great product though.
