They do actually trade with the rest of the world outside Germany - including, would-you-believe, the United States....why not check their website ?

https://rhelectronics.de/

Look at the top right-hand corner of the website and choose your language - probably English.....


Thanks for the link! I don't need a rebuild (yet), but I am collecting options in case I do someday.

It looks like BMW used the Bosch AM-01 controller. The rebuild is not cheap, but than half the cost of a $2800 BMW replacement.

Afternoon lkraus

The BMW 1150 I-ABS controller is an FTE not a Bosch.

Well, in looking through the RH Electronics site, I (mistakenly) guessed Bosch at one point, and eventually found what appears to be the correct unit at the link above. I may have forgotten an intermediate step or two. ohboy
AM-01 is apparently just RH's internal product designation for "ABS Motorcycle Type 1". The "Device Discovery" on the site sometimes gives slightly different results. At one point I saw the modulator as
TYPE AM01
ABS motorcycle
FTE
BMW approx. Year 2000-2006


Now I'm just seeing the FTE replaced with RTD - translation confusions, maybe?

The detailed description shows:
Device manufacturer RTD
Manufacturer Identification BMW Motorrad ABS III
Vehicle Make BMW
Models All BMW Motorcycles with Integral and Partial Integral ABS III (circa 2000-2006) R1100S, R1150R, R1150RS, R1150RT, R1150GS, K1200RS, K1200GT, K1200LT, K1200CL, R1200C, Montauk, R1200GS, R1200RT, R1200ST, K1200R, K1200GT
Typical parts no. FTE, BMW Motorrad ABS III No .: FTE S2AB900-36, -37, -38, -39 and others
distinguishing Control unit with 2 electric motors (brake booster) for BMW Motorrad. Very large and heavy, device made entirely of aluminum with brake line quick-release buckles, 1 connector plastic. There are different versions of the housing eg aluminum injection molding or aluminum milled


The pictures show a couple variants on the basic unit, but this looks very close to my imperfect memory:

The description sounds right, but that photo doesn’t look even close to my ABS II.

Morning Michaelr11

Your BMW ABS II (ABS 2) piston system is a completely different system compared to the BMW I-ABS (ABS III) servo pump system that is being talked about above.

You are correct DR - my eyes had a hard time seeing that it said ABS III (3), and not ABS II (2) which is what I thought was there.
