Dripping ABS

Hey out there, My 03 GT has an electric motor in the ABS unit that's leaking and I can't find a seal to replace the one that's gone bad. Might have to replace the motor as a whole but can't find any nomenclature there on. Thanks in advance of your fantastically informative response. Skizick

The motors themselves do not have seals....the seals are part of and within the unit.

There are two motors within the ABS unit. One for the front brakes one for the back. They drive pumps. The seal I need separates pump side from motor side. I found ONE seal stateside that may cure my leak. ID 5mm, OD 15mm, 6mm thick. SKS1972. If the bearing that the shaft runs thru isn't two loose the new seal should fix things. Thanks for your response. You're the one in 100 that took pity on my plight. Next time you're in Fiddletown, the beer's on me.

You can buy the motors..for around $240.00 each. I cant remember the place but it is in here someplace. If you have your motors out of the unit you may want to pull them apart and check the brushes and commutator for wear and crud build up. Mine were toast and built up with a lot of crud. I replaced the whole unit to save the pain in the ass. I had MAX do it and it was worth every bit of the $400.00 they charged me for labor, remove ,replace, bleed the system DONE!..These units are very sensitive and the problem with these units are endless. I got about 100,000 miles out of mine but some only get 30,000 out of them. Its a crap shoot.

I don't know if there is a MAX on the West coast but they sound good. Haven't tried to pull the motors apart. I'm sort of tipee toeing thru this thing and the motor didn't seem to want to part on the brush end. The motor source would be handy. New brushes wouldn't hurt I'm sure. Thnx agn

MAX BMW is the local dealer in New Hampshire, your local is A&S. Hard to get down the hill to Roseville with your ABS pulled apart though. But I am curious...since I lived in Fiddletown for 10 years.....didn't know there was another KBike in all of Amador County let alone another RS/GT in Fiddletown....where will you take him for a beer? Or just bring some home from Pokerville? I used to live on Hale Road.

Anchor Steam

Hey There Feller Fiddletonian, We lived on Rolling Oaks Court for a spell. Mostly we live downtown, across the creek from the park. Got the K from Rory's Towing. Impounded, riding with somebody else's plates. I think the guy might have let it go because of the ABS stuff.
Electric power brakes...EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE EEE. Me no like. .
Anyway, got the seal in and the leak stopped. The rear brake motor doesn't spin. Guess I'm goin' back in. Wish I could get source for the motors, KEG brand from what I could see. Specs. are gone off the name plate
As to Bruski, Anchor Steam, Frosty mugs, my back porch. Maybe go for a ride on my other K model. '52 KHK. Magneto and a carb. No black boxes...

Here you go
Got word finally that the motors for the iABS brake system can be purchased. After disassembly of my iABS unit due to issues of sudden brake warning lights flashing and power assist failure (BAD!) I found my assist motors worn at the commutators and brushes to the point of intermittent motor failure and no brake assist. I have been hunting for a connection to buy these motors that are not obtainable through BMW and you must buy the whole iABS unit at over $2,500.00 If your unit is just in need of motors here is where they can be purchased. Here is the email I received inquiring purchase.

Hope you like Anchor Beer...Thanks. I'm going to bench test the motor next. Don't want to buy a motor when its the circuit board, etc. It's more fun when you can share your misery with others, EH?
