Can you make ABS switchable?

Hi there,
My understanding is that the ABS module searches for a power supply on start up then when the bike goes over 5 km/h the ABS error light goes out.

Is there a way to use this to make the ABS switchable?

Might be too many issues, but would be handy in certain situations.

I believe this will help do what you are looking for. VStrom. I think I've also read some posts about pulling the fuse but I think you needed to pat your stomach and rub your head to get it back on or something . Unfortunately I have to suggest trying to search for it on the forums. I'm not a fan of people answering questions with 'use the search function' but in this case, give it a try and you should find some posts about switching it on and off. I hope I was of some assistance to you. Please follow up with any info you find or how you plan to go about doing it. It is something I have thought about doing, just in case.
Cheers,
Brent

Turning it off is easy. To turn it back on, you have to turn the bike off and back on.

I've done the abs mod , got the wire and switch through EB and works grate . You can switch it off at eny time but to switch it back on you have to turn off the ignition to reset it ! But that's no probs
