    Anyone out there change the front Calipers on a 2009 or 2010 ABS Ultra yet?
    Was wondering what aftermarket Calipers work with the ABS system?

    Haven't changed mine, but I did replace all the bolts with chrome allens when I upgraded to chrome forks/sliders/wheels. I'll be curious to what others reply with, so thanks for asking a question I was pondering.

    Unless the wheel speed sensor is in the caliper itself (I don't know where Harley puts them) changing calipers shouldn't make any difference to the ABS system.

    I think the sensor is in the wheel bearing, so I doubt calipers should be an issue

    Are the brakes Brembo?...Have parts guy check to see if part numbers match up with same year w/o...they may have changed things "on the sly" and only your friendly neighborhood HD parts guy knows for sure, as the aftermarket manufacturerer's lag a bit with compatibility data for new models by a year typically. :s

    The sensor is on the inbetween the fork and axle and the encoder is in the bearing itself

    Good Idea, I did look in the parts catalog and the ABS and non ABS calipers listed are the same part numbers. So I am guessing that you can use any aftermarket Caliper that is made for a 2009 2010 Ultra. Just need to get the ABS bike bleed by the dealer.

    think if you do one caliper at a time you might not need to go to dealer
