It's probably already been asked, but is it possible to buy sensors and wiring and add ABS to a non bike.

Like the say the question not asked is not answered

It probably is but it will be expensive.

No!

Easy fix though; sell your bike and then buy one that has ABS.

Yes, this question gets asked occasionally. You're not alone! I've never seen a reply with an encouraging word, for the retrofit would so expensive (if even possible) that it just wouldn't be practical. I'm thankful that I had read many of Tom Finch's posts extolling the virtues of ABS before I bought my Goldwing or I too might have eventually asked that question.

Yeah, it goes way beyond just the brake system itself. You'd need the main wiring harness, the electronics to control it, you'd need a new instrument cluster... could it be done? Yes. Is it cost effective or even remotely feasible? No. Same answer for adding NAVI to a non-NAVI bike - that question get's asked as well.
