I made a custom ABS Switch on my Yamaha Ténéré 700, which allows the disabling or enabling of the ABS, without the ABS re-enabling when the side stand, kill-switch or contact is used.
In the video I show the method I used. It is pretty straightforward. Please keep in mind that this is at your own risk. The wire I rerouted is 12v 20A, which is quite high.
The products I used:
- 2.5mm2 cables (link)
- 12v 20A switch (link)
- Female flat cable shoes for the switch (link)
- Cable shoes for the cables at the fuse box (link)
- Heat shrink tubing (link)
- Liquid tape (link)

Step by step process:
Please keep in mind that this is at your own risk.
- Remove the seat and side panels on one side
- Locate the fusebox under the seat
- Locate the the 'ABS Solenoid' fuse (which is the only fuse that you can use without getting errors on the board computer)
- Located the corresponding cables under the fuse box
- Make sure the bike is fully switched 'off'
- Cut one of the cables of the ABS Solenoid
- Connect the 2.5mm2 cables to the ABS cables with the cable shoes. Make sure you already have a heat shrinking tube in place, for when the test is successful.
- Wire the cable all the way to the handlebar, depending on where you want the switch.
- Connect the cable-ends on the handlebar to female flat cable shoes. Make sure you already have a heat shrinking tube in place, for when the test is successful.
- Mount the switch where you want it. Make sure it is mounted securely.
- Connect the cables to the switch. I did not use the grounding plug on the switch, if you want to, make sure to wire an extra cable.
- Make sure all the connections are strong and secure and set the switch to 'on'.
- Start the bike for a test round. The ABS light is supposed to be on, but after a very small ride, it should switch off like normal.
- If this works, flip the ABS switch to test its function. The ABS light should come on. If so: test successful. If not: check all the connection and check that the switch is set to the correct position.
- Fix the switch and the cables securely in place. Use the heat shrinking tube to cover all connections. Finally use the liquid tape the cover the connections of the switch. I used over 10 layers of liquid tape.
- Enjoy your new mod and ride safe!
