Abs in mine works fine....

Have made the swap since new in my 09 white ABS and everything works fine....not with the above kit but by changing internal components in the original forks...plus ofc a new sidestand and center stand...brakelines weren't an issue even with rox risers....

That is exactly what I wanted to hear - thank you very much.

I'm also likely to go with a 19/17 setup which will bring it back down a bit and likely take care of the centre and side stand issue - Yes, I am aware that centre and side stands will be short once the bike is raised but I just don't understand KTM's disclaimer with respect to ABS equipped bikes.
That's good to hear.....I was considering getting the 265 height with or without the kit (i.e. without the kit so I can custom pick springs for my 240 lb weight and load carrying capacity as I carry 175 lb of gear including Gobi weight but not rack weight) but didn't want to change the valving since I can install parts but am not confident in doing the valving and could also stand to save the money it costs to re-valve.

How does it raise the rear?
The front is easy with the longer cartridges but wouldn't we need a longer shock shaft?

For the rear, there's a spacer under the piston that limit the stroke: thick spacer->short stroke, thin spacer->long stroke.
For the front is more or less the same, but with more stuff involved.

Lifted my '07 ABS up to 245mm 40000km ago, and i'm very happy with it.
