Hard to say for sure, but I think it'll be okay. If you were using an MS43, the electronics would definitely be fine. The MS45 is a bit of an unknown. Theoretically it should work fine -- the signals didn't change format, and the ABS controllers all communicate in the same language so to speak... but since the MS45 arrived late enough that it was never used with the early ABS controllers, it's hard to say with any certainty that you won't have issues.
