Wheel fitment

The ABS sensor is on the wheel itself. ABS helped me out enough times to
appreciate it. If I could install the wheel sensor on a GSXR fork and wheel,
(or if one is available with it) then that would be great, but I don't think
that's an easy option.

I apologize if this is an ignorant question, but what does it take to
install cartridge fork internals? Do you pull the cartridges out to make
adjustments? Do you need a system with all of the adjustments on the top? Is
there a Web page to cover this?

Thank you,
Paul Danger Kile
