My RT's ABS is getting a fault when I turn on the key with no error code. I

That sounds like a mechanical fault in the ABS Unit. They get noisy when
they fail. A Piston Fault is usually noted by the dealer when that happens.
The normal "ching, ching" noise gets replaced by a "Clank, Clank" noise
when the DC motor and electro-clutches in the ABS unit fail.
My question is can I ride like this or is there a way to disable ABS to ride
safely until I can work on it?
Yes, if you completely disconnect the ABS and remove the ABS warning relay
in the relay box, you should just have normal brakes.
