Don't have one yet

I don't have one. If changing loses abs then I can just get a 950.

990 Adventure carb conversion question

I've searched all over and just can't find the answer. When you convert from 990 fuel injection to carbs do you lose ABS also? I know....I know you can tune the fuel injection. I did that with my '07...

Not dropped mine

I guess you could drill a little hole in the tank ring to tie in a piece of wire. Since I did my bike I have not dropped the cap so I'm ok with it not being tied to the tank.
