sure does...

has someone not come up with a on/off toggle switch yet for the GS line? Kinda odd seeing how the super tenere has been out for only a few months and they already have this nice gizmo...

the 800's and for that matter the 1200's have been out for sometime now... any electricians out there wanna have a go at wiring a toggle switch?

I'd buy a switch like that. It would be nice to not have to remember to disable the ABS every time I restart my bike in the dirt.

I would be cautious. The abs sensor harness are shielded coax because the sensor signals are very susceptible to EMI and bad connections.

If I were doing it to my own bike, i'd interrupt some other wire and do it thoughtfully so that I felt confident I was not jacking with something that could cause ABS to tweak out when I wanted it.

But yeah, for permanently deactivating, say for a long off road trip, unplugging the sensor wire under the seat works.

Are you famous when people start reposting your pic's?

Glad someone found it cause I take too many pictures to find one that old lol

One thing I have found out that I should have thought of long ago.... If you remove that plug and then drop your bike in water, the ABS may fault at a bad moment when you hook it back up.

I would suggest some plastic wrap and a rubber band to keep the ends dry and clean.

Have fun, ride fast!

what if you wire a switch that breaks the connection underneath the seat... would that not work?

Yes it sure would. But you're dealing with shielded wiring and that doesn't make it impossible, but it sure makes it a pain. I also don't know if the computer checks for continuity in the circuit constantly, or only at startup.

I just sent an email to a smart guy who has done other BMW related electrical projects to see if this is feasible.

He says it's doable. I'm going to send him close up pictures of the connectors when I get home so he can cross-reference them against his supply of BMW connectors and then make up a switch to test. I'll keep y'all posted.
