Yeah, that was pretty much my reaction to jam's 'words of wisdom'. If you click on his username, and then click on Find More Posts by jam, you can enjoy reading some of his other 'gems'.

Well, in addition to the rear brake the combined ABS system on the CBR 250 activates one of the three front wheel brake pistons also when the rear wheel brake is engaged. Hence some people think they don't need the front brake and rely entirely on the rear brake...doesn't make much sense though as only one of the front pistons is used and you can't get full stopping power with the rear brake lever alone.

I quite liked the servo assisted ABS linked brakes on my BMW. The back brake was applied as normal which didn't activate the front at all. When you used the front brake lever, it applied a mix of back and front brake depending on speed and decelleration. It worked very well, not that the ABS ever activated whilst I was riding it. The things that I didn't like about the system was that it made a funny noise whenever you used the brakes, it wasn't easily serviceable by a home mechanic, and if the servo pump failed, as they do sometimes, it wasn't far off £1000 to replace it.

WOW!!! I wonder if it's also better to use my emergency brake instead of my brake pedal, in traffic, in my car!

Everyone has the right to be offended but just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right!

What's more important is does it have the sensor ring around the hub?

Doesn't look like it does, I guess that answers my questions
