    I'll be happy to swap out my standard Brembo brake setup for your ABS Brembo setup (08 Anniversary Road King). I'm in Eustis, FL, less than an hour from Daytona or Orlando.

    Why the wheels? The sensors sense the calipers.

    You've GOT to be kidding! I've been building bikes for 52 years. Swapping brake systems is a breeze compared to trading bikes !

    Sure about that? What do the special bearings do then? :D

    There's a bit more than you are aware of with this swap obviously.

    I know that the 09 sensors are in the wheels, when I bought the new bike they could not take the wheels off an ABS bike and put them on mine because of that, so I have the spokes. Didn't really want them originally but they look good.:D

    The sensors are in the wheels? So, if I swap out my stock wheels for Renegades, I'll lose ABS? I've mentioned the wheel swap a couple of times at the dealer, and haven't heard anything about that. (Not that I knew enough to ask specifically.)

    Is there a way to use aftermarket wheels with the ABS?

    Not sure you'll have to ask the dealer
