Disabling ABS

Took my new (to me) bike to the track for the first time yesterday and found that if I unplug the front ABS sensor, it defaults to off every time I turn on the ignition. No more having to manually turn it off before every session. The one caveat is the speedo wasn't working, which is weird because it should go off the rear ABS sensor and I left that plugged in. Will do some troubleshooting this week.

Circuit mode is garbage. The lever turns to complete mush well before I've come close to using full braking potential. Even turning it off is a pain; whether or not I have functioning brakes shouldn't be contingent on my shitty memory before every session/race. I decided to go with a race harness & ECU. Problem solved.

Abs on off?

I went to NYST Oct1st there is a long straight and has a up hill at the end that is a bit blind that turns into a long sweeping left turn 1. I started the bike with no toggling ABS OFF OR CIR. So I was at 140 on the speedo crests the hill pulled the front brake realize I missed my mark " I was too early" so I let off then pulled back on full pull. The lever went from typical mush to what a braided line should feel like with a very slight pulses "not the typical ABS feel".

I thought something could have been warped or out of line. I checked my bike when I pitted. Nothing was out of speck so next session I tried the same thing and the exact same outcome.
So what I am asking is has this ever happened to anyone else?
And with the sensor off do you gain a firmer lever?

Are you used to a bike that does not have ABS? Keep in mind there is probably 2x or more brake fluid and line with ABS so you loose some feel. Might want to try bleeding the fluid as well.

There is a post here where you can remove the front ABS lines from them modulator, plug the holes and use a non ABS line kit, no ABS errors occur and the rear wheel still has ABS.
