    Can you add ABS brakes to an 08 Road King Classic ?

    In a word. No. The dealers won't touch the job. If it didn't come with ABS then you are out of luck.

    It can be done, but it would be cheaper to trade your bike on one that has it. So I'm agreeing with Joe's "in a word no" statement.

    It would be TOO expensive to retro fit it and I doubt you will find a Dealer to do the job

    Someone on another forum actually knew a HD engineer & asked this same question...outcome was to buy one w/ABS because adding to bike after-the-fact was costly & tricky if not done correctly.
