    I only have 200 miles on my RK but it seems that the front brake 'grabs' earlier and harder than the back. Does ABS have anything to do with that? Anyone else experience anything like this?

    I moved from a '02 Fat Boy to a '09 Street Glide and I also found the front brakes way more sensitive. The FB needed a lot of room to stop. The SG has better brakes and 2 of them on the front. The ABS does not come into place until the brakes lock. We just need to modulate the front brakes better...
