Re: ABS on the '07s...

Great read on the ABS and is one of the things I'd be ordering or buying once I get my SV.
The links were a great read and downloaded the MSF pdf files for further perusing.
I plan on an '08 model so I hope that the ABS feature will be available to me since I've not rode a bike in about 15 years.
MSF courses coming and then the purchase.

Thanks again for the read.

Re: ABS on the '07s...

Thanks for the story. I wanted ABS but wasn't been able to find it anywhere... I got a good deal on a non-ABS '08, so I decided not to wait anymore.

The Suzuki dealers told me that people just don't want to pay $600 extra on a $6k bike for ABS. Seems like it's well worth it to me (especially since the '07 was an extra $1k).

I did the same thing, I don't know how many years though when I bought mine new in 2005 I got some APR special and put $500 down and only pay $100 a month, but I did landscaping and it was seasonal so it worked for me. kinda does suck when you think about it... but ehh i got a bike to ride to w/e

[UPDATE 2008-08-21] As mentioned in y'all's comments below: the system works with both wheels. The ABS pump doesn't look like it is attached to the front brake lines, and the brakes aren't linked, and I never fealt it work in front, so I believed that it only worked in back, but I was incorrect. Rear-wheel lockups cause lowsides, so there would be some benefit even if it only worked in the rear, but I was incorrect nonetheless. Thank you for the comments. Here is a Suzuki video that demonstrates: http://www.suzuki-gb.co.uk/extra/000057/ [/UPDATE]

I have some of my thoughts about motorcycle safety here:

Great links. Thanks for the info.

I would like to clarify that rear wheel skids/ lock-ups don't normally result in a "low side". Rear wheel lock-ups almost always lead to a "high-side" if there is a crash. And as we all know, a high-side is MUCH more painful than a low-side.

Re: ABS on the '07s...

While doing some general maintenance of tightening stuff up, I went ahead and traced the brake lines on my 08 SV N ABS.

The brake line from the front reservoir goes to a fitting on the frame connected to a hard line going to the ABS pump located where non-ABS models have their battery box. Another hard line goes from the ABS pump back to the front of the bike, where the hose connects it to the brake line to the calipers.

The rear is similar. The line from the reservoir goes to the ABS module and comes back to the caliper.

Just a thought... aftermarket SS brakelines may not work on ABS models.

Re: ABS on the '07s...

My abs light stays on all the time... any idea what to look for? Brakes work fine, but I'm hesitant to try the abs to see if it still works. Anyone else have any problems with their abs?

I don't see why not.

As long as you can replace the existing line with an SS of same length. On a car, when SS lines are installed, the hard lines are kept, only the flex line is replaced.

My LSL handlebar kit has a replacement SS line that goes from the MC to the fitting on the frame. I have to figure out how to disconnect it from the fitting and replace the line with the SS one.

One thing that I read in the Haynes manual that covers ABS models, I will require a vacuum pump to bleed/empty the system.

See this thread:

http://forum.svrider.com/showthread....&highlight=abs

It was covered under warranty. And, no, your ABS won't work, so don't try to lock up your brakes.
