First I want to clarify in my question that I don't care about the ABS light being visible on the dash. I simply want to know whether pulling one or both ABS fuses is the right approach to fully disabling ABS. This is a track bike and I do not want ABS at all. I've seen other threads that mentioned just pulling the ABS Solenoid fuse but I would think both ABS related fuses would need to be pulled to fully disable. Any help is greatly appreciated. I'm headed to the track on Friday and need to get this taken care of before I go.

Thanks

Actually looking again at the manual there are 3 different ABS fuses. ABS solenoid, ABS motor, and ABS ECU. So what is the affect of removing all 3 of these? Anyone know?

I removed the solenoid fuse to disable it. No other issues experienced doing that. I didn't want to pull the ABS ECU fuse and potentially throw off something in the ECU so solenoid was next. A friend pulled the ABS fuse on his bike, another brand, it disabled the speedometer. 🤷‍♂️

New brake lines next, bypassing all the ABS equipment, then the fuse can go back.

Thanks for the replies. After speaking to a dealer I decided to wait to do this. Didn't notice it being intrusive yet on the track. After my next track day I'll probably revisit this when I have a bigger gap between events. Thanks for the feedback.

I mostly hate relying on electronics. ABS is good as long as it can do a better job than the rider. If it fails you'll still have brakes. Throttle-by-wire is the reason I won't buy certain bikes.
