ABS pump failure

I thought I would share with you my recent experience. My 07 GT "brake failure" light came on the other day. My bike warranty expired last Sep. and I have 28,000 miles. I took the bike into the dealer and they diagnosed it down to a bad ABS pump. They told me that the pump is 1800. They sent an e-mail to BMW and they "goodwill" 90% of the part. So I paid 180 for the part and another 180 to get it installed and bled. It should not have gone bad already but they could have left me hang out to dry. So Im glad that they helped me out.

Lucky you.

Around 8/06 they began using an $1,890 pump. Prior to that, the thing runs about $2,490 or so. I got the pricier one and the thing is a b***ch to bleed. Seems like these bikes are disposable once something goes south on them.

My ABS pump failed in '09 ('02k12rs), so I bypassed it altogether and have normal brakes on my model with stainless lines. This caused other issues but the brakes work great, you know, like a normal motorcycle.
