Eastern Beaver sells a harness and switch. There is a thread somewhere on a much cheaper DIY solution.

I have to ask .....what do you mean "works too soon"?

I used this thread and it works quite well. I used a handlebar mounted switch on the right side that lights up red. You're ABS light also comes on so you know you have it shut off.

thanks!

@Motor7 - I meant it react too soon to my linking and I feel it's there, e.g. on my honda nc750x I don't even know about it if works or not.

When you shut off the abs, the light comes on, does the speedometer still work?

On the 2014 1000 if you remove the wrong fuse the speedometer will stop working but if you pull the other fuse it will still work.

The 650 could be the same ???

On my V2 I basically replaced the fuse with a switch while keeping a fuse in the line, when I switch the ABS off it shuts down and a light comes up on the dash.

When I turn the switch back on the light goes out and the ABS works again instantly, no ignition resets or anything required.

On my 2010 650, when ABS is switched off the light comes on and everything but ABS works normally.

Your 2010 takes its speed off of the countershaft/transmission. The 2017+ 650ís use the front abs sensor for speed. If you disable the abs by using a switched fuse, I would think it might also turn off the speedometer which is the reason for my question.

The v2 also uses the front ABS for the speedometer and providing you pull the 25amp fuse not the 15amp everything except the ABS works as it should.

Yes, works fine. As stated, I switched into the 25 AMP fuse and all works as it should when the ABS is off. Mine is a 2019. It is the first fuse in the row closest to the tank on the left side when sitting on the bike. I'd send you pic's but it is tucked away tightly under cover right now for winter and getting to it would be a bit much.
