2003 BMW K1200RS ABS Module/Pump

I just purchased a replacement ABS module on E-bay for my 2003 K12RS. Anyone here ever change one out? I've got a shop manual but it's miles away from me right now. Looking for some pointers and planing to change it out very soon. At least get started on it this weekend maybe. Thanks in advance.

Re: 2003 BMW K1200RS ABS Module/Pump

Use new washers at the banjo fittings. Use specified torque for the fittings. Find the thread on flushing the brake system for this bike in the stickies.

Module masters in Idaho now says they have a list for people needing to rebuild their units. Runs the best part of a grand.

I think you'll need that shop manual to be on the safe side.You can probably download it from Tradebit?Or someone with a better connection than me could send it to you via Dropbox?Mine was available there for a while but I haven't updated my account so can't pass it on as I used to.

Re: 2003 BMW K1200RS ABS Module/Pump

Thanks for the input. I was waiting on module masters to get parts for a rebuild. Seemed like a couple of years went by before I gave up on the them. I picked one up for cheap and the seller says its been tested and works. Let's hope. I've got a shop manual already and have bled the brakes before. PITA. I had to fabricate a special wrench for that. Nothing is easy when it comes to working on these bikes. I found the best tool to be patience.

Re: 2003 BMW K1200RS ABS Module/Pump

I removed mine awhile ago..comes out from the rear wheel area...you’ll need one long torque 25 I believe to remove a retaining torque...I can verify tomorrow when I’m in my garage.

Not too difficult to remove, just time consuming.

It's a Bondhus #13164 5mm x 246mm hex ball head T-handle, just went to the shop and checked the spare you gave me when we pulled yours. Good thing Jargon was there to offer emotional support when Stevie and I yanked it!

https://www.amazon.com/Bondhus-13164.../dp/B000XLZ8ZI

The rest of it was pretty straightforward, as I recall we pulled the clips to separate the quick disconnects on the pipes and didn't touch the banjo's until it was out.

Re: 2003 BMW K1200RS ABS Module/Pump

If you are still just 'separated' from your manual and need one. I have the BMW shop manual in .pdf form somebody scanned in. I can send it email. It is 38,580 kb in size.
I use it all the time and print out what I need keeping my hard copy cleaner than the Clymer.....
I am still in the States with good internet for 2 more weeks....let me know.
(Once we far enough along on the house in Mexico, internet will actually be better, but we are not to that point yet...)

Thanks for the offer on the shop manual. The bike is at home with the shop manual so no need for you to send me one via email. I won't have time to work on it till early Oct. when I get home.
