Default Bikes - Anti Lock Braking system on Disc Brakes

I recently saw a device called as an ABS for indian disc brake bikes. Does any one have info on how these work and how effective they are? I guess it cost around 700rs and can be readily fitted to any disc brake bike.

When ABS option for cars are so costly like 20-30K extra (the stupid manufacturers think ABS is a luxury rather than a essential safety feature charge the big bucks), how can this device be so cheap??

I plan to retro fit a disc brake and was looking for your feedback. Please help.

I doubt anytin like that will be available in India and tht too for jusr Rs.700.

And ABS isn;t just plug-n-play stuff, it requires a lot more than that.

you can fit ABS (Anti-lock Brake System) on your existing bike which has a disc brake installed.

it cost between 600-700, and is available with KRP (Kaulson Racing Products) in Delhi.

it works as, in case of emergency braking the wheels dont lock and prevent skidding of the wheels.

Oh, oh... ABS is never (and should never be) retrofitted. Even where ABS is offered as an option, it's factory-fitted at time of assembly.

Don't play with braking systems... you'll be playing with life (yours and others)...

KRP's ABS is not an ABS in its true sense.. Al it does is it restricts pressure on the calipers to the disk so that the disk doesnt get locked.

Also in case of suddenly pressing the brake lever it again restricts the pressure.

I somehow think it defeats the purpose of a disk brake since you're restricting braking power !!

Any opinions about this new kid on the block ?

Saferide ABS

Is it wise to install this ? I'll never expect this to work in the same league ar the car ABS systems but does this provide any help during wheel locking ?

Mithun : This thread has a little more info

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/motorb...heelers-3.html (In a first, TVS plans to offer ABS in 2-wheelers)

Also I conversed with the folks at Saferide some time ago and they told me even if there is a malfunction in the product ( which is highly unlikely ) it will go back to Non Abs. Sounds like a win win situation .

What I would really like to know from anyone who has used it does it takes the bite out braking. Since it works on the principle of relieving hydraulic pressure on the calipers. Especially you a coming down a slope and need constant braking. Akshay4587 if you are listening

Hi Guys,

Picking up an old thread expecting more riders to have information on this product in the last 6 years

So here you go - http://www.saferideabs.com/ (mechanical aftermarket abs), how good or how bad is it?

I ride a Pulsar NS200 and despite changing the rear to Michelin pilot sporty radial, it still slips. It doesn't slip when there is a pillion so definitely there is a design issue with the bike.

Hence my objective of this aftermarket abs is to have it on only my rear wheels. I will live with and manage the front brakes without abs. I know this is not a proper abs, but I just want to reduce the occurrence of slips on my rear wheel.

Any suggestions or experiences from our team bhp riders?

I've seen a mechanical ABS (not necessarily from the same website you've mentioned) on the front wheel of Unicorn; from my little experience, the front brakes performed very bad than stock.

In your case, my line of thoughts goes towards checking for...
1. Disk pad wear & tear & replace if necessary
2. Check & replace the rear caliper kit

I've experienced the same issue until 2 weeks ago, where, no matter what tire I use, the rear wheel locks up on my CBR 250R. Fedup, I changed my rear caliper (to that stupid Bybre) & voila!! Now my rear brakes are simply awesome & I'm getting a feeling as if I've Nissin.

Mine is a 1300km (2 months old) NS200, and NS is notorious for rear wheel locking up.
