Anything is possible.

Would it be ADVISABLE?

No.

Is this for another, identical-except-for-the-lack-of-ABS moto? Or another model/brand moto?

Most motorcycle ABS systems are crude, at their best. Roughty equivalent to the ABS you'd find installed in a '90s GMC or Ford pickup. Better than nothing, but more of an annoyance than a help.

So, are you saying that the ABS system on a Bandit 1250 is no good?
Not necessarily "bad".

Crude, yes.

Glitchy, anachronistic, - probably.

While I've yet to find out for myself, reportedly the best-working, most "transparent" ABS on a moto to date is the new system Harley Davidson has adopted.

Just like with EFI: compared to automobiles, ABS and traction control seem to lag-behind by 5-10 years on motos. And I don't really understand this, either. Moto-engine output and design lead autos by decades; why the ancilliary stuff lags is a complete mystery.

Mostly though, in my mind on this particular thread is what sarnali has pointed-out. That's why I asked about the donor and recipient bikes............
