While these sensors do have to be close to the metal to work, something non-metal between them and the metal wheel should not affect the sensor. These are not optical sensors that you can fool with tape.
Nvrmd. Thinking of something else. They are ESD sensitive, not mag field sensitive.

As stated, it stays lit, solid, no blinking.

Taking an old thread up... I have -13 F800GSA and I'd like sometimes to be able to fully disconnect the rear ABS. I do have the option for ENDURO mode that works well yes, but still does not fully disengage the ABS from the rear. If I use the handlebar switch, it disengages the whole ABS and that I don't want, as I want to have the ABS on in the front.

I read the whole thread and came to a conclusion that using this harness will also disable the ABS from the both ends? Is this the case?

...and there was also a report that disengaging the ABS this way will hassle with the OEM heat grips and probably with something else as well. If this is the case, this harness is a no-no for me.

Sorry, but don't have any Tech. advice regarding your specific question but ...

Happily share what I think about ABS & riding on loose ground.


My belief is that ABS is a tar road thing completly, have suffered the consequenses by using ABS on gravel and it's plain scary, when the ABS feels that the tyre looses the grip during braking it just let the brake up ... imagine a really rocky sandy downhill, the speed builds up & eventually you want to slow down just to notice that you are without brake effect the only thing to do then is to steer & aim and hope for the best.

Initially when you are new on looser ground ABS can be a good thing as the pace overall is rather low & the possibility for to much brake in the wrong moment are high. But here it doesn't matter if it's both wheels.

When the knowledge & pace builds up to the level were you think you can get rid of ABS rear you should have reached the skill level to handle a front without it also.

I always use ABS on tar but never again in the looser stuff. The memory of 3 broken ribs & a severed crashed bike still hurts. Forgot to turn the ABS of, came into really loose stuff in 55mph, wanted to brake down abit ... zero brake effect, pressed the bike down to be able to take a corner and the front washed out & down I went

Just my 2 cents ...

What would happened if I quickly shut off the engine?

Might that be a way to save oneself from a disaster?

Well ... remember that the most critical situation usually occurs in parts of a second. Part of that time you are surprised that you hasn't any brakes & try to brake over and over again, the rest goes for just steer & avoid the crash.

If you are going downhill in a straight slow pace and notice that you have lost brake power due to the ABS way of working, then you have time to make your decision... engine braking would be my choice.

I am familiar with the system and I am not aware of any method to disable the rear abs only.
