It may be fine for some, I find it very intrusive and easily engaged. A friend of my sons with a new Aprillia 660 ended up off in the dirt and then on the ground on a canyon turn because heavy braking triggered and he ended up blowing the turn. He had slowed a lot but he was still on the ground. He tried pulling the ABS fuse on the Aprillia and the speedometer shut off. I found pulling the ABS Solenoid fuse on the R7 causes the ABS light to go on because it is inoperable, but there has been no negative or other affect.

I've had a close call due to ABS. If you really hate ABS and don't plan on switching back, run new brake lines directly from master cylinder to calipers. I did that on my Zero and even snipped the wires at the sensors to tidy things up a bit. I plan on removing the whole system one of these days.

That is the plan! There is a place close that makes custom braided hoses for cheap, while you wait. About $40ea for front lines, you can pick the color sheathing. The rear line won't even be a foot long going from the master to the caliper. The place makes all kinds of aircraft and wheeled vehicle hoses etc., brake, hydraulic, water, etc. If it's not too much trouble I'll uninstall the ABS related hardware and lines that I can.

index in Ontario CA the place.

The link says index but that is where it brings you. Or type it in.

I think I used Goodridge on the Zero. 3' of line and 2 banjos that screw on. One of the old ABS lines fit the rear so that was nice. I got a left hand master cylinder for the rear that I'd like to use since there's no clutch.

I know someone that uses a left hand master as an additional rear brake point, it's an interesting idea. It really seems to work for him, he's quite fast on the track.
