If you disable the ADV does it affect the ABS system and how it will function? I think I might have read something on this site but can't find it again. Thanks in advance for any info.
The following assumes that your ADV is not frozen or stuck." It might not be a good idea to disable the AD unless you change to a stiffer spring in the forks. With stock weak springs the front end will dive badly when you hit the brakes hard. "
That's what I thought too, so I'm going to put the Progressive springs in too. But I don't really want to disable the AD. Still deciding on that.
The whole purpose of the ADV is to prevent dive with the soft compliant springs that Honda uses. The two are designed to work in tandem. With a stiffer spring, it just isn't needed, whether it works or not.
Well, maybe, and maybe not.So if I disable it I won't feel like I am riding on the axel/rigid frame if I run over a small rock? That would be what I'm after.
If you have anything else that is activating your ADV other than the brakes, you have something wrong with your bike, because its only purpose in life is to control front end dive during heavy braking.BRAKE SERVO-PRESSURE SENSING ANTI-DIVE SYSTEM
This motorcycle is equipped with the Linked Brake System (LBS). This system operates the anti-dive system on the left
front fork by utilizing fluid pressure generated in the secondary master cylinder.
The secondary master cylinder responds to braking forces generated by the lever and/or pedal. When either brake is
applied, the plunger is pushed by pressure from the secondary master cylinder and the anti-dive piston valve in the fork oil
passage moves to block the passage. As the flow of the fork fluid is reduced by movement of the piston valve, the system
reduces compression of the front fork and thereby controls the nose dive of the vehicle.
