I got abs to kick in on a gen5. Didnt like the feel of it personally.
If you are not very experienced then abs would only help you.
If your vastly experienced then your fingers do the abs for you.
Racers dont use abs as they usually have alot better control of a bike than jo public

Riding fairly normal and not threshold breaking you won't know it's there.

I have the full setup now laying on my bench after I removed it which really wasn't that hard.
Did you also take out the ABS PUMP. or just take out the lines?

I wanted it,thought I was getting it because I saw the rings on the hubs, but in the end it's just a standard model. for you guys that ripped everything out, does it require an ECU programmed for ABS or could a guy just install everything you've taken out?

Thanks porschenut. I guess I should have mentioned its a gen 4. You're right, it would probably need a cluster also.
