Most abs systems allow / force front brake application when applying the rear brake so the rear wheel doesn't lock up.  Haven't heard of the opposite idea probably because you can stop a bike with only the front brake regardless. You don't actually need the rear brake but you will always need the front brake.  ???

I think most VFR owners don't care the combined brakes seem to work well on my VFR.

There's a trick caliper mount on the front a delay valve and a proportioning valve and obviously trick calipers.

It's all mechanical on my VFR and works well.

The major issues are that bleed is a bit of a pain, and as most riders seem to think they are better that motogp riders they think they can beat it.

Yeah, those people

"ABS is s**t"
why?
"because I don't need it"
then why is it a problem?
"because it's jerky and cuts in sometimes"
that's because it's stopping your front wheel from locking under excessive braking
"ABS is s**t"

I remember when EFI was shit. ..and before that electronic ignition was shit.

Right now, lane departure warnings are shit and adaptive cruise control is also clearly shit.

Electric cars. Shit.

Off grid solar? Shit.

If you listen to these naysayers, then we're all still using carburetors.

TO be fair, the first iterations of some of these things were in fact shit.

Some more, slightly more controversial ones:

Continuously variable automatics transmissions. Absolutely amazeballs. ...except for the Mazda and Ford ones.
Dual Clutch transmissions. Jeremy Shartson's famous rant about 'flappy paddle' gearboxes. What a complete knob. ...unless it's the Ford PowerShit. They truly are rubbish.
A person died with the Tesla auto-pilot in control. Ooooooooooohhhhh well it must be shit! Question: ...how may people killed their own retarded arses behind the wheel in the same month?

In summary: Change is shit till change becomes the norm. Rinse repeat.

Continuously variable automatics transmissions. Absolutely amazeballs.

CVTs are brilliant and would have been the key to ultra-efficient internal combustion engines. Right now, engines have to produce a torque curve, a range of power through a range of revs. If the transmission can keep the engine at a specific revs, and vary the speed with gearing, then the engine can be designed from the drawing board, to work with exceptional efficiency at that specific RPM.

I have a CVT in my Honda and it's thrilling.
