In a 4 wheeled vehicle its a little more effective vs a 2 wheeled one. Plus you have plenty of room for the pump and line routing.Not to play devil's advocate, but there are circumstances where ABS can dramatically increase stopping distance... and I'm not sure why.
Bottom line, nanny-tech is good when it's not malfunctioning, but do I want it? Not really. I can see the comfort in being able to grab as much front brake as one wants on a motorcycle.
I redid my foresters lines along with the rest of the braking components. Of course the pump had to be cycled and I dont really live near any easements that would allow me to properly
cycle them. Lucky I have a friend that has the proper equipment. Which is hilarious because the #1 complaint on Harleys and BMWs with ABS... the pump stops working from not being cycled enough.
Of course its completely integrated as part of the electronics so you either cough up the $$ for the associated parts or you dont ride that bike.
So basically on a vehicle with ABS you must maintain the fluid and cycle the pump regularly. Something that ties back to skills.
It amuses me some folks will buy a $15,000 R6 but balk at spending $2,000 on actually learning skills to ride it that will be the biggest "mod" one could do to ANY bike. The more bikes you own the cheaper the amortized costs are...lol
