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"
