ABS Brakes Loud clunk

2010 FLTRX ABS brakes. When rear brake applied hard as in emergency, get a loud bang. Like a hammer hitting metal. Dealer says it is just ABS brakes. This too loud for that. Regular braking ok.

That doesn't sound like a normal condition, I would have them reconsider and take another look at it, I have ABS on both of my bikes and never experienced anything like that.

I think that is the anchor getting tossed out the back...

In theory, Theory and Reality are the same. In reality, they are different.

Check your rear axle nut and make sure its tight. If it's not torqued properly your rear brake caliber mount will shift and cause the clanking.
