Add ABS to Non-ABS Bike
« on: March 31, 2012, 01:09:30 am »
Have an 09. How difficult would it be to add ABS to a non-ABS C14?

Is there a separate computer for the ABS, or is it built in to the standard ECU?

Thanks.

Jeff

In lookign at my abs version, it COULD be done, but by the time you did it you might have the first $35,000 c14. There are so many pieces, nto to mention the computer, that it woudl be far cheaper and easier to sell the bike and try again.

This being America, you can get just about ANYTHING if you're willing to spend enough money.  But I've got to agree with rcannon and recommend that you use your '09 as a trade-in and get a newer one.  There's no sense in trying to re-invent the ABS module.

I agree that it's not worth the price. If you want ABS, buy another bike. It's much cheaper and easier than trying to adapt one.
