Going with the HD back brake upgrade

After trying for days to bleed 2 separate master cels, I gave up. Found out I was 6 weeks out of warranty, so rather than pay $230 for a new 2015 master cyl, I decided to spill the contents of my bank acct and for just over $800 (labor inc) go ahead get all the rear brake components changed to the 2016. I consider this an upgrade, and look forward to seeing the changed pedal position feels.
My front brake feels ok, so I'm letting it be for now, plus I now have no more $$$ anyway. Ha ha!
Will post more when I get it home and can take her for a ride and check it out.
Ps: btw, taps talk seems to be the only way I can get on this forum now.

Are you getting the new ABS upgrade from HD?

Are you getting the new optional ABS upgrade that HD list on their website as an option for the 2017 Street 750 for $750.00?

Where is the pedal position on 2016 compared to 2015? I always thought it was the same.

Harley had a Demo Day and I had an opportunity to drive the 16. While waiting for the Fuel Pump Recall parts on the 15. I did notice that, My Foot kept sliding on top of the bracket. On the 16 model. Not so on the 15.
