If I could find a replacement board, or repair mine, that would be ideal. And the simplist retrofit. But either way, the abs-ectomy is happening. I’ve not only come to peace with it, but ultimately think it’s better knowing this $3000 grenade is no longer on the bike and can’t fail.
I just ordered 4 custom lines from spiegler. The abs kit consists of 6 lines, I only need the 2 front lower and the distribution box, the front and rear lines are custom. I’ll post pictures and the order with part numbers for others who find this thread..
The electronic part of this I’ll figure out once I have a rolling/stopping bike again. The brake lights are well documented, a couple of relays and you have brakes. The speedo is another story, but I have ideas. I’m hard-headed and I’m going to try to get the abs sensor (which is speed sensor!) in the rear to send a signal. I also ordered a $15 used speed sensor from an earlier kbike from eBay. No idea if it’ll work either, or if the reluctor is even correct, but it was $15 so who cares. It’ll either be stupid or brilliant. Other options include a gps speed sensor sending unit. Jegs has one for $115, with variable pps settings. I can’t find any documentation on what bmw used, but logic dictates that they didn’t need to reinvent the wheel here (who knows). Worst case, I’ll hack up the stock guages and install a gps speedo with odo in place if the original (least desirable option). But either way, brakes and lights gets me back on the road and my phone can give me speed for the meantime...
