Hay there peeps.

wee question for you, is there a way to adjust the sensativity of the ABS?
Mine is far to sensative, i have taken out the fuse for now so have no ABS at all :(

Cheers

you might have a sensor on its way out, did the ABS light ever come on while driving or braking?

could it possibly be a tooth missing on an abs ring? usually that causes the abs to kick in more or less all the time

check the white sensor plugs and the rings on hubs first.its not sensitive unless theres a lock up as with any abs system.
