Thank you Ditch.

You're totally right. removing a bit of weight here and there ended up making a huge difference. Weight saving from the BST was a huge improvement also.

What I ended up doing for the ABS? I tried an ABS delete module from flash tune but it didn't work. I opened it, chopped the motor, mounts' casing, etc. Keeping only the plastic tab for the connectors and the circuit board. Now my speedo works just fine and the ABS light is gone.

hey Jardamuth. were you able to figure out how to make this work? I just picked up an ABS model and would like to also delete it from the front but would really like to keep it out back for panic braking.
I'd be inclined to think that panic braking will have more effect on the front than the rear. A locked front wheel makes the bike a little bit harder to control while most experienced riders will have no troubles sliding along with a locked rear.

I see this is solved, but will add that simply removing both ABS fuses does indeed kill speedo function and makes the check engine (FI, Suzuki description) light up. (It is the light above the ABS light and looks just like an
automotive check-engine icon.)
I reinserted the fuses but the FI light did not go out immediately. It did go out after a few key-ons and running time.
I would have then tried just pulling the sensor fuse, the 15 A one, but I was anxious to go on my ride. I will get back to that when the weather improves.

Hi Verbatim,
You may know this, but the Calif bike has it's own wiring diagram compared to the rest of the World.
When Roy was trying to get a working Calif spec ECU in an All States bike, the speedo did not work, but everything else did work.
There is only 1 external wiring difference, but internally in the ECU, who really knows why Suzuki needed to make 2 (or more) ECU's just for America ?
So be aware of this when you read any helpful comments that pop up.

Rob.

Gotta love Commiefornia. We'd be happy to sell it to Australia if you guys are interested. Heck, just take it.

It's always nice to have the speedo working. I deleted the ABS module and replaced brake lines with non-ABS braided ones. Only problem is that the speedometer is not working when the ABS module is disconnected. I believe there are two pins that must be jumped but I haven't figured out which ones yet. Anyone know? I think it's the same as the ones in the GSX-R. There was a DIY somewhere about it but haven't been able to trace it back.
The Abs works off the excitor ring around the inner wheel, it could be that this is also used by the digital speedo to calculate the speed, hence unplugging the whole unit means if can’t read the speed of the ring..
