I bought it used and the bike came with the air filter so U have no idea what difference it makes. I confess to be puzzled why the PO had it installed as the exhaust was stock. There's no point in letting more air in if you aren't letting more out. Activating the ABS in a straight line is not dangerous, indeed the point is to make braking safer. The rear is easy, brake moderately hard with the front (which will unload the rear wheel) and then hit the rear brake. You will feel the pulsing through the pedal. The front is more difficult if you are not used to hard braking. To start, as you brake moderately hard for a stop sign, when you get to about 5 mph, pull on the lever as hard as you can. You will feel one or two pulses through the lever. Work up from there to get a feel for it.

I'll note I didn't use the rear brake on motorcycles until I got the STR and the Duke, so for most of my life. It's fun jamming it on and not fishtailing. Although sliding the rear wheel was a bit fun...
