ABS can be defeated by pulling a fuse, installing a switch or getting the wheels to move at different speeds for a while by spinning the rear in loose dirt, on a center stand or, interestingly enough, wheelieing.

What you will also like is that the TC stays off the next time you start the bike...

I don't recommend doing it until after the warrantee is up, but adding a switch to turn off the ABS is pretty easy. You can switch it off on the fly and when you turn it back on it comes back in about 5 seconds.

Not on the 650's. Both gen 1 and gen 2 require the bike to be turned off and re-started after flipping the ABS cut off switch back to "on". Are the DL1000's or gen 3's different?

You're switching the wrong wire. Another wire in the ABS system allows on the fly switching. Proper ABS on/off switch

See post #39 for Gen 2.

Interesting, I used the EB kit and didn't realize there were two matching plugs. I'll take another look next time the tupperware is off...valve check is already overdue at 17K and change.

The EB kit won't work to restore ABS on the fly. A different wire has to be cut and each side of the cut ends extended to a switch. It isn't plug and play.
