True, but black is also available in non-ABS. So I want to be able to look at a black one and know if it's abs or not...

So if it's black, it must have ABS? Is that also true?

No black can be ABS or non ABS. I also wouldn't use the color to determine if it has ABS because it is very likely people will be changing bike colors via paint/vinyl or simply replacing the tank.

I know I will! All black is street camouflage and I want to be seen but others. I can attest that all black vehicles are hard to see. I almost turned in front of an Audi that somebody had wrapped/dipped in all flat black. The only thing that wasn't were the amber turn lenses which I saw at the last second.

There is a second ring just inside of the brake rotor that is used to measure/sense the wheels rotation rate. If rotation is stopped, and the bike is moving, that wheel is "locked" by the brakes and the ABS releases it.

Screen for 500 Rebel

Hi just bought my cmx Honda 500 and love it but think I will need a screen as when riding on motorway as lots of wind on me. Does anyone know where I can buy a screen in England. Thanks

Probably wrong place for this but one of my rubber side tank pads (honda brand) has peeled off. Any advice how to restick it without damaging the paint. Double sided tape maybe?

Maybe im wrong but i think you can use any db side tape as most can be removed with wd40 which i think is safe to use on the tank paint

Yeah it's a common complaint about them.
Just clean it up (both the rubber bit and the tank) and apply some good double sided tape. I believe M3 has one that will withstand just about anything.
