would it be accurate to say that if your speedometer does not work, that the ABS will not work as well?
My sensor wire for the speedo is damaged and Im waiting on a new one, but also my ABS is not engaging . I remember on my last K bike, you would have to start riding to have it start working,

The ABS has it's own sensor for the rear wheel on the front of the brake caliper.

I know about the sensor rings on the front and rear wheels. So the ABS, should work independent of the speedometer? irregardless of each system

Which K bike do you refer to now, Bill? It helps to have the model(s) as a part of your signature at the bottom for any potential question answerers.

Only later model K1200 brick speedos won't 'work' if the ABS pump is defective or disconnected. But if the connector or wires to the final drive sensor are damaged then, sure, there's potential that the speedometre won't receive the signal. But if your sensor is detecting its ABS signal from the caliper body then this shouldn't be an issue, regardless.
