K-1200S (2008) ABS pump fails after 10,000 miles

This is the first time I have tried to post. I couldn't find a thread that covers my topic. I have a 2008 K-1200S that I bought new in 2009. After 10,000 miles I got a brake failure light. BMW of Orlando found that the pump for the ABS system had failed. The service manager called BMW and was offered a 25% discount on an $1800.00 part. Total to replace the pump after discount was north of $1500. I have owned and ridden 5 BMW's since 1969 and was surprised that the company didn't offer something better for an obviously faulty part. Just wondering if anybody else has run into this problem

Welcome to the site. Sorry you have the abs pump problem. Do a search for your problem in the new gen KGT forum. You will find tons of info on it. If you are a little handy you can fix it yourself for free. I have to get up really early, So I cant look it up for you now. Give me a shout if you cant find what your looking for. In most cases the failure is caused by sticking brushes in the pump.
P.S. pick the correct forum to post in and people will be more willing to help you out..
