Okay then - appears no one on this forum is willing to talk about this or has explored what is required to make this modification.
So has anyone disassembled an ABS Modulator unit? Can the electronics be separated from the modulator unit without damage?
Does anyone know what happens to the electronics functions if the ABS unit is unplugged? Does it simply produce codes or is system function status changed or degraded?
Has anyone looked into the ABS Modulator connection status when plugged in - ohm'ed out the connector pins - power on. Is the ECU or IMU simply expecting a open, closed, a specific resistance or voltage value from one or more the ABS Modulator connector pins? If that is the case, I'll can make a connection terminator to replicate those values and remove the brick.
I guess my R1 is going to be the experimental bike that finds out what happens when attempting to remove the brick from the bike without disrupting the rest of the electronic functions. I'll source a spare ECU, IMU and Modulator before going too far. Unintended things can happen doing this sort of work.
