Threw my Adventure sideways before every corner today. Screw ABS!

I'm starting to lean towards an SMT tho... If i can get a good value for my 950 then i'm considering a switch.

I bought my '07 with the ABS in fault mode = Not working. I haven't tried to diagnose or repair yet, so I literally don't know what I'm missing, if anything. It's the newest bike I've owned, none of my other motos have had it.

I do like the idea of front ABS only for the trail riding I do.

Check the sensor, some people would put a washer in the rear one to move it away from the ring so it would disable the ABS totally.

Did you just use the stock bolts to plug the ABS pump rear lines or did you have to source another bolt?
I had to get new bolts from the auto parts store, take one of the stock ones to get the right pitch. Get 2 bolts and a nut to chase the threads as they didn't have the exact length i needed, so i cut them with a hacksaw ground a light tapper with a small file on the the newly cut bolt, then backed the chaser nut off.
I think i got new copper washers also at the parts store... or did i reuse the stock?... cant remember.

Pretty simple, hope that was what you were looking for.

Edit;
Had a question on bolt length, this is what i used.... do this shit at your own risk

Looks like 9 mm... like my digital caliper...
lesson don't leave it in the garage over winter, fukin froze like everything else here.

We were just hit by an SUV a few months ago on the freeway and if it were not for the ABS the crash would have been worst

The rear brake line for the ADV "S" is backordered until around April 10th.
Does anyone have the dimensions of the "S" rear brake line and a diagram for routing the line?

Dusty and EZ300 when you removed the reart line and installed the bolts did you leave any brake fluid in the "rear" section of the pump?

I think of abs more as an emergency safety device than a riding aid. It's not about whether you can slide it out in the dirt, its about that suv pulling out in front of you.

It happened to me on an old cb400 with crappy tires. I was driving at speed, probably 65 or so and the big suv pulls into the road right in front of me. I harp on the brakes and it starts to skid, I let off, and brake hard again and it starts to skid. I see the driver look at me through his window and eyes go big. The oh shit we are gonna hit hard moment. I let off the brakes completely and leaned hard left as I could. hard parts were dragging and sparking, and I think my tires passed under his front bumper.

I have crashed a lot, and I am one of those people that tends to remain cool in panic situations.

Now I have an 1190 and abs and that situation would play out much differently and better.

I think the quality of the 1190 abs is often overlooked as a massive selling point for the bike.
