I can't imagine why ABS would have anything to do with a fork brace. I have a Super Brace on my 2012. We turned 25,000 miles last week. We ride almost always loaded and two up, in the twisties of North Carolina or Virginia. The fork brace really stabilized the front end . My wife could feel the difference.

There is an old post, from many years ago, when the Gen. 2 ABS first came out, and the guy says he put a Gen. 1 fork brace on a Gen. 2 and under a heavy cornering load the brace came up against the ABS stuff and either caught on it and wouldn't return or caused such a sudden stop so that he lost control and wrecked the bike. By his own admission the suspension was compressed to it's max where most people don't go, and the tires were already at the limit's of adhesion.

If you notice, the Gen. 2 Super brace has a dip in it compared to the Gen. 1 Superbrace, and I always assumed for that reason, though I did notice that Motorcycle Larry's fork brace is straight across and has no dip and he recommends it for ALL Gen.'s except the ES.
