ABS Pulse Ring
« on: 16 August, 2019, 03:28:56 PM »
Iíve just spray painted the weights on the rear of the pillion footrest bracket (or step as itís called in the parts catalogue), and now Iíve got my eye on the ABS pulse ring.

The pulse rings have had a good rub with wire wool, but to my mind they would look at lot better with a fresh paint job. I think black would work well.

What Iím asking is, would a lick of paint on the pulse rings affect the correct operation of the ABS system?

A bit of paint shouldnít make much difference in terms of reducing the distance between the sensor and pulse ring, or cause problems with the spaces around the circumference of the ring, which could give a wrong reading being picked up by the sensor. Iím also unsure if the paint would affect the electronic signals between the ABS sensor and pulse rings.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Thanks

But after you've taken it off and cleaned it up properly, you may just find you like the clean, shiney, new look and fit the thing back as original.

Yes, that could be an option worth looking at. Although I haven't got a bench grinder in my armoury yet, just a vice. Weíll see how it goes.

Bench grinder ???

I'm thinking more like a brass brush and a clean-up with a metal cleaner and elbow grease.

Hi jm2

You can get a brass brush in the form of a wheel for a bench grinder. Will do a proper job.

Cheers

I can't tell you what I was imagining there for a moment (other than the request of a new abs ring).


Crispy,  Ah yes.  Just checking there.  Go easy though, that could be quite quick to score with brush marks.

Well, no need for a bench grinder, got a 3-piece brass wire wheel set that fits into a drill for £3.50 delivered. The pulse rings can be cleaned without taking the wheels off. Just go gently with the drill until itís bare metal, then rub with ultra fine Scotch-Brite pads and Autosol and they come up a lot better.  1 hour job max and the wire wheels are good for more work. Also gave them a very careful thin coat of ACF50 and itís made a big difference to the look of the wheels.
