Hi,

does anyone has any info about what is needed to convert from non ABS to ABS?, i´m looking forward to get:
-Hoses assemblies rear and front
-ABS sensor rear and front
-ABS module
-ABS wheel sensor rear and front
-Engine Harness including ABS module socket

Is there any other items that need to be considered?

I read on a Sprint forum a related topic and somebody explain that the ECU module is the same for both (with and without ABS) so i think there is no need to replace it on the tTger but can´t find any thread about it.

Any idea???

Check on your instruments whether you have the abs menu. If not there's another (expensive) part for your shopping list.

Invest the money into an Advanced Rider course and you'll know how to stop better than ABS and you'll ride better all around.

Someone always says this when an ABS thread is posted (it's usually me !), but I agree completely. If you are riding a bike properly, within your limits, then you don't need ABS. I've never needed mechanical ABS in the 35 years I've been riding. However, I've used my "human" ABS many times to save the day. If you're in a situation where ABS has to pull you out the sh!t, then you're usually too far in the sh!t for it to make the difference !! :frown2:

Good luck with your choices though, whatever you decide to do :smile2:

I'm not saying a motorcycle with ABS is a bad idea at all. If I were you and I were looking at purchasing a new motorcycle I'd be buying one with ABS. But if I had an old motorcycle I liked and it didn't have ABS I'd just look at improving my braking ability through training.
