Interesting, it can't as simple as unplugging the unit and pulling the fuses... I did that in the past without success.

Turbo; I have it almost figured out. It looks quite simple. The reason why you can just not unplug the ABS unit is because the signal from the 2 wheel speed sensors go to the abs unit first, and then to the ECU. If you unplug the abs unit, then the ECU gets no speed signals. I will keep you updated. Thanks. Mike.

Ahh very clever, if it's truly that simple then it's an easy fix.

Though it should have been mentioned earlier in the thread... being the nature of the world these days, that all advice given in this thread, is offered as just that, advice. And anyone undertaking the steps out lined do so at their own risk.

You are altering a (haha) "safety" device on your vehicle. As such you may render your insurance null and void, this could see you paying off someone else's Mercedes Benz for the next 200 years so check with your insurance provider, you may render any and all warranty claims null and void from Kawasaki. You may alter the motorcycle in such a manner that may render it inoperable. Or take the operation of the motorcycle beyond your skills and ability.

As such I take no responsibility for any out come of undertaking the modifications listed in here. I will not help you pay off a Mercedes Benz. (or any other car).

Yeah but nobody pulled the unit or fuses they were simply blown and the ABS didn't work.

Just FYI on a 2012 model:

I removed all the ABS lines & fittings from the bike, but left the ABS block still plugged into its harness. I then ran aftermarket brake lines direct from the master cylinders to the calipers and with both ABS fuses still installed the ECU doesn't even know the difference. When I start the bike the ABS light comes on just like normal and as soon as I start to roll the ABS light goes off.

Yep I would expect it to continue to sit there idle.

However ideally we want to get rid of this dead weight off the bike.

I have the same year model....You don't have any issues over 11,000 rpm and the Abs stays off?.

The issue is when you unplug the ABS Servo... then the bike goes into limp mode.
