Front wheel question

Part of living and riding in Australia is the constant threat of striking a kangaroo. I had the first experience of striking one on my new 2002 Gl1800 recently and have a question in regards to the damage.

While the damage to the bike was very minimal as the front wheel took the impact it did manage to break off the pulser ring located on the right side of the wheel, part number 44515-MCA-971. The ABS light also is now flashing.

My question is what is the purpose of the pulser ring and is it part of the ABS?

Thank you for your help.

Yes, it is what signals the ABS. There's one on each wheel.

Thank you for your help.

In an ABS system there is a magnetic pickup and a ring like that on each wheel. In one rotation of the wheel, magnetic signals are generated depending on the number of the slots on the ring (more accurate than on most of the cars).
When the ABS control unit can not receive a continuous signal, it thinks that the wheel is locked up and adjusts the brake pressure to gain the wheel control again.
Actually, in modern bikes ABS doesn't wait to react until the wheel slips. It continuously controls the brake pressures on each wheel according to their rotation speeds as you apply the brake.
