Does anyone want to translate into English? It seems to involve putting the bike on a center stand (which I don't have) and rev'ing the engine pretty high.

OK, i will, here the steps:

1.- Start on engine, then ride a few meters until ABS indicator light turn off.
2.- When ABS indicator light is turned off, do not stop engine, and next, put the motorcycle on central stand so that rear wheel stays out of contact with the ground.
3.- Shift to 2nd gear, and then make wheel spin with the throttle like if you were driving until ABS light turn on.

And that is, ABS will keep disconnected until you stop/start again the motorcycle.

If someone could put this on practice, could comment and tell us if this works, i don't have central stand yet, so it's kind difficult to me do it so.

Regards., Ride safe!

The 650 works by spinning the rear tire with the front tire stopped. People have reported just holding the front brake and then spinning the rear tire in wet grass.

about @Vincenzo Campisi a little fix:

3- make wheel spin with the throttle like if you were driving until ABS lightTURN ON.

the light on mean the abs is disconect when the bike is moving.

Confirmed that this works. When I take my Versys out on the sand I take it to a spot of fine sand to start and just get the back wheel spinning in second until the ABS light comes on. The ABS then stays off until you restart the ignition.
