That was a fine job. I was thinking at Rade's tank but ABS was the way. Now there's a new chance.
Thanks for the walk through.

There is not much room in the Doghouse, but the ABS unit just fits, and there is plenty of room for all the wires and

For charging I'm using a 12v cable from the on board outlet. I also some adhesives to put on my gloves so I can use they screen with gloves on. LEt's wait and see how that works. I've seen some Rukka now has some gloves that have that as standard.






Any pictures of this that works?

Be checked or when you need to replace the sparkplug?
What i want to know is : are the brakelines and wiring harnas long enough
To lift the unit when you need to go there for maintenance? Or do you have to
Loosen the brakelines every time?

Got it. The stock lines from the front brakes are long enough. The rear lines are custom made. I made mine 5 inches longer than the stock lines. They are long enough to allow removal of the unit from the doghouse without disconnecting the lines. The fit is tight, but it can still be done. Another inch or two longer will make it even easier. Once the ABS unit is out of he Doghouse, it can be removed in less than a minute.

I filled mine with gas on my way home from work, cracked the throttle and stepped the rear out on my favorite turn. Then practiced my wheelies off the bump at the bottom of my hill.

The usual.

I was thinking of designing some graphics myself, do you have any templates ?
