Just out of curiosity why not just buy a non ABS bike? Did they stop making them without it? Seems a little pointless to buy the ABS model and pay more just to rip it out?

For track riding I'd for sure want NON ABS, but for street riding, I definitely want it. I guess that's just my opinion though. Maybe on the Gen 5 we can get a threshold selector for normal, rain, track, off.

'94 EX500r: SOLD
'08 SV650s: SOLD
'11 GSX-R750: SOLD
'12 ZX10R: TOTALED
'12 ZX10R: current
'05 GSX-R600: Track.


'12 ZX-10R: woodcraft frame sliders, techspec tank pads, Guhl reflash, Graves full SS exhaust, zero gravity seat, motodynamic integrated rear turn signals, shock rebuilt by velocity calibrations with race tech internals and spring, bazzaz qs4, ZFI. and dyno tune.

I purchased my Gen 4 as a track only bike. Couldn't afford a new one so I bought used and the deal too good to pass up that came along was an ABS model so my only choice was to disable and/or remove the system.

Luckily I know how to ride on the street as well as the track so I don't need ABS for either.

I'm trying this on Sat finger cross it works on My EU model.

Ripping all the OEM brakes lines out and installing HEL brake lines.

Two ways you can block the holes... allen key grub screws of the correct thread (obviously), I filled mine up with silicon sealant, you'll need to make sure all the fluid is gone or it won't adhere to the block.
