    Sorry that I'm no help to you, WilsonRR, but this as an opportunity for me to be glad I purchased a non-ABS!

    So far as your problem goes, can you be sure it's only starter motor wiring? For instance, can you bump start it? Obviously, if it won't start, you'll know you have other issues.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I have now sorted it. Managed to cut into the abs loom and utilise the 2 existing plugs needed to power the starter motor. Only needed 2 wires so just cut the rest and leccy tapes it all neatly.

    Got a few pics before heat shrinking it so if anyone is in the same boat, that can get an idea here.

    My next issue is removing the abs light on the clocks. Anyone managed that yet?

    The older guys will remember how simple things were in the 70s. Take the fuel tank off by removing a rubber strap beneath the HINGED seat, and there, in all its simplicity is a set of coils and NOTHING else. Remove the headlight and identify one of only a dozen wires: indicator, brakes, lights, and tacho. Problem solving? Piece of piss!!

    Having said that, I still prefer my Blade over the old CB 750 K1.:D:D

    That looks correct, you needed that part of the loom to engage the solenoid for the starter to work. I removed every last part of the ABS system on mine and never looked back. Only thing that's remaining is undertray, battery compartment etc! The non ABS uses smaller battery and different locations for these parts under the seat, as well as a different undertray. Really not worth changing at all in my mind.

    Sorry Lozzy. Fallen into the politically incorrect trap again by referring to 'older guys' to the exclusion of the female members.

    Oh, and just so no one starts talkin', it wasn't my CB 750 you were on the back of!! :eek::eek:

    But it is great that you progressed from pillion to rider. Cheers!!:D:D

    That’s exactly what I thought. Besides, may aswell have that extra cranking power.

    Was anyone able to ditch the abs light?

    So I've completed this whole abs delete and also changed the battery under tray for non-abs. with no real problems. there is room for everything!!!

    I am still however looking for a way to remove my ABS light in my dash without having to open my cluster!

    Anyone?

    @ColinBR is the one to speak to. He's the expert in ABS deletion.

    Can I ask how easy it was to change the battery undertray. What's involved?
