Afternoon oilhead1100s1150rt

Did you tell Module Masters that you think the servo pumps are operating?

The big hang-up in repairing the BMW I-ABS controller is the internal pressure sensors (they are/were not available) so IF your pumps are working then it doesn't sound like you have a pressure sensor issue.

It might be worth another call to Module Masters & having an in-depth talk with them as they might be able to repair your unit now.

Have an 04 R1100S ABS and am always concerned about this failure, so flush system every year. Have always found threads about removing ABS system that says the electronics can be separated from the pump to keep speedometer and brake light working, so possible to remove. Also, though I found this website, the company is in Germany, but maybe an option, but know nothing about the company, here is a link, https://rhelectronics.de/.

Don't hold your breath on this. For the 1150RT, they have been saying this since at least 2006 ish. I can't see them warranting the time to look into doing this for the limited number of bikes that will be left running. Most folk have ripped their Servo unit out and tossed it in the bin. It may well be different for the R1100S though.Me? Suspiciosly doubtful. However, as DR mentions, because it is the ABS element of the unit, they may be able to do something.

Hi, new to this forum. I've done two iABS removals (both on '04 R11s) due to failure and it is not hard. My first experience with iABS failure was while riding and that was NOT something I want to experience again. The electronic module can be detached from the pump (4 screws) leaving the wiring connection from the harness in place - this retains the speedo function. I used aluminum sheet from a hardware store to fashion a cover for the exposed part of the electronic module. Ditch the pump and associated hard lines and replace the old rubber lines with braided ones (I used Spiegler). For the front, I ran dual lines from the master to each caliper. The ABS light will remain on so I removed the light from the instrument cluster.

Hi to 041100S in Ark.
Lovely silver-looking bike you have.
Regarding the German firm RHelectronics, I know a couple of UK riders who were happy with their 800+ euro investment in having their iABS box repaired by that firm, instead of just ripping the entire system out.
Expensive, but if you so value the facility of the iABS, cheaper than a new module I suppose.


This is a list of the people I'd trust with my bike
