Lay that pistol down boy !

Zip you know you need a couple of O rings to seal the abs pickup, I know that that is all doable but do yourself a favor and remove the ABS.What year is your bike and doe's it have absi (power brakes) ? DB

I don't have a dog in this fight, but I agree with DB (shocking! I know!)--screw the ABS--leave the FD the way it is.

I have had ABS on all my bikes - including my hack - since BMW started offering it.

I like it. Can't think of ANY reason to remove it. Here's what other folk recently had to say: http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=868234

My 2c

Thanks, Duncan

I like the way it follows the back deck line ( your showing off) but where is the BMW roundel sewn into the seat back ? Can't you follow directions ? LOL
Justin and I are going to the first local rally in the WI river valley tomorrow.Looks good take care.DB

Actually it's really cool !
