Yep....

I have this beauty with 16000 km on it .
I purchase it 4 months ago.

First rain fell on bike and christmas lights begun on instrument clusters. :(

Symptoms:
-no Speedo
-no ABS
-no rear assisted brake
-front assisted brake motor operating non-stop (even when key is out, battery drain)
-brakes assist completly die after few minutes.

Long story short, removed ABS unit from bike, opened electronics cover, and there was water inside.
You can see fresh oxidation on inner side on about 1/4 height.
Bad /low quality seal.

Tried to clean everything and  dry it up, but after reconecting - symptoms are the same.

In need for another unit.

QUESTION:
Is it possible to mount ABS unit from K1200GT with same number on it (FTE S2AB90049)?
Specificaly ... is some kind of recoding necesary or it is just plug and play?

Thank you in advance,

medo

Hi Medo

You should be able to use the controller from the GT without a problem.

You will however need to take the bike in to a BMW dealer for them to marry the new ABS controller to the bike.  GS911 is not yet (hint, hint ..  ;D) able to do that.

Hope you come right.

Hi Jughead,

Thank you for quick response.

So , somekind of recoding is necessary?
What if i do not go to bmw dealer to mary new abs controler to the bike.
Will it work or it will be in one of the error states?

No, conditions will be as they are now.  ABS pump will return an error and not function.

Yes, same scenario. The serial number set in the pump firmware, whatever bike it is from, needs to be added to the bike's firmware.

Ouch.... :(
I supposed that it will need something like that to be done.

Thanx for info Jughead.

You are quite a resource on this forum. I have read many helpful posts from you.


Well .... nearest BMW dealer capable of diagnostics and coding is 200 km away... :( :( And it is big question if they will do something like that if pump is not changed in their premises.
So it seems ride to the dealer is not quite an option now.

I am already downloading various BMW diag/prog software, and I will seee if it is possible to code with cheap diag. "cables", which I doubt that it can be done with.

Beside that I also need to find another ABS modulator pump, or at least electronic board...
