Retro fit ABS brakes to 2008 Suzuki M50

Love my 800 M50, but the front brakes lock up in an emergency.
Is there a after market ABS kit available. ?

The rear brakes are weak, perhaps fitting a disc (in place of drum ) and ABS as well ?
Thanks

There are no aftermarket ABS kits available. Due to liability issues I would not expect to see them in the US. It is theoretically possible to adapt an ABS system from another vehicle for use on the bike but the work involved would be prohibitively expensive. The best improvements you can make are:
1) Working on your braking technique.
2) Using aftermarket brake rotors such as Galfer Wave units.
3) Adapting braking systems from another bike that has great brakes (GSXR or similar racing style bike).
4) Making sure your current system is operating properly (good fluid, good pads, pads moving in the caliper as they should).

ABS - Anti-Lock Braking System And EBD -Electronic Brake-force Distribution In Plain English Posted by: Rohit Khurana March 1, 2010 in Automobile Technology
AdvertisementCarBlogIndia Technology Articles , today I will talk of one of the most talked about safety feature called the ABS And EBD. Again I will try to keep the language simple and human understandable (which non-engineers can also make some sense of), pun intended.
What Is ABS ? Anti-Lock braking System system or ABS is a safety system which prevents the wheels on a moving vehicle from locking up(or cease while rotating) while braking. ABS offers improved vehicle control over dry and especially slippery surfaces by reducing the braking distance but it can also increase the braking distance in case of loose surfaces like snow, gravel etc. Ever since the invention of ABS, it has been evolving and the recent systems not only prevent wheel locking but also electronically control the front-to-rear brake bias, which we know as Electronic brake force system, Traction control system, Emergency brake assist or Electronic stability control.
Working Of ABS
Advertisement
When brakes are applied under heavy loads, the braking pressure becomes high resulting in heavy braking or in other words locking up of wheels. The ABS overcomes this by monitoring the wheel speed and releases pressure on each wheel brake lines in the form of rapid pulses switching between different brake lines. which prevent locking-up.

Preventing lock-up under heavy braking helps the driver in maintaining control over the vehicle. In modern ABS an individual brake line is provided for each of the four wheel enabling different braking pressures for different road surfaces of the wheels.
What Is EBD ? Electronic brake- force distribution system also called as Electronic brake-force limitation is an automobile brake technology that automatically varies the amount of force applied to each of a vehicle's brakes, based on road conditions, speed, loading, etc.
EBD system is always coupled with anti-lock brake-force system. The most important function of EBD is to maintain vehicular control with variation in braking pressure applied to each wheel in order to maximize stopping power. Generally most of the weight of all vehicles is carried by the front end so the EBD ensures less braking pressure at the rear end to avoid skidding. But in some EBD's the distribution of braking pressure at the rear end is more initially when the brakes are applied before the effects of weight transfer comes into play.
Working of EBD system An EBD is a subsystem of the abs and its function is to control the effective adhesion utilization by the rear wheels. this definition has been given by SAE in its technical paper no. #920646.

The Antilock brake force system releases pressure in different brake lines at the time of heavy braking to prevent locking-up. The action comes in the form of releasing pressure from the braking circuit when it detects extreme and rapid deceleration in any of the four wheels in order to make sure that the driver maintains control over the steering during panic or emergency braking. For example if the wheels of a vehicle are on snow as well as asphalt then in case of emergency braking the ABS will monitor the speeds and eventually the EBD system will release less pressure for wheels on snow and more pressure for wheels on asphalt to prevent wheel lock-up

Because the fluid services both side evenly, you should only need to bleed the LHS. Just bleed it the same as you would a normal hydraulic system.

Put a small piece of plastic tubing over the bleeder valve, and make it as airtight as possible, I generally lock it with a piece of brass wire.
Place this into a jar with enough brake fluid to cover the bottom of the tube. Open the reservoir, it is easier with two people, open the bleeder valve, and pump like carzy, adding more fluid to the reservoir as required until no bubbles appear in the jar. Then lock off the bleeder valve and clean up the mess, after re-fitting the reservoir cover.

A new US study has found that anti-skid brakes dramatically reduce the chances of a fatal bike crash.
24abs_m_m.jpg
Anti-lock braking systems can reduce the likelihood of a fatal bike crash by 38 per cent, a new US study has found.
The study, by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, found that anti-lock brakes dramatically reduced the chances of overturning a bike and crashing.
A separate study, by the affiliated Highway Loss Data Institute, found that insurance claims dropped by 21 per cent for bikes fitted with the technology.
In a report on the study, the president of both organisations, Adrian Lund, says anti-lock brakes are life-savers.
“It’s a way to reduce the chances of overturning a bike and crashing, so it can save lives,” says Lund.
While the introduction of ABS on cars didn’t deliver any noticeable reductions in fatal car accidents, Lund says it’s clear that widespread adoption of the technology on bikes would have a much bigger effect.
“It isn’t surprising that anti-lock brakes are more beneficial on motorcycles than they are on cars because the two-wheelers are so much less stable and it’s this instability that leads to crashes,” he says.
The braking process on a bike is more difficult than a car because the front and rear wheels typically have separate braking systems. The front brakes are more effective for stopping fast, but hitting them too hard can make the front wheel lock up and pitch a rider off the bike.
Lund says that some bikers hold back on the brakes for fear of locking up, only to find they haven’t braked hard enough to avoid a collision.
ABS systems use sensors to adjust the brake pressure continuously, ensuring that the wheels never lock up and the rider can continue to steer in an emergency.
The HLDI study compared insurance losses for 12 brands of bike with and without anti-lock brakes, finding that insurance losses were 21 per cent lower and claim frequency was 19 per cent lower with ABS models.
The IIHS study studied eight brands and found there were 6.6 fatal accidents per 10,000 registered bikes without ABS and 4.1 accidents per 10,000 for bikes with ABS.
In a statement released to coincide with the study findings, local bike insurance specialist Swann Insurance says the studies support its call for more car-like safety items to be included on motorcycles.
