I hear these guys apparently will work on BMW motorcycles ABS modules.

These guys rebuilt my ABS module for my 2002 Corvette for 1/3 what a new one from Chevy would cost and it's been fine for over 3 years now. Don't know if they do bike modules, but maybe you can convince them to do yours. Good luck.

Also, I have heard that they cost $1800 new from BMW. Don't see why you couldn't get that deal there, or buy one from US and have it shipped.
And, my dealer said that if the module goes out, the brakes work fine, just doesn't have the ABS feature.

Apparently yes they work on them according to some of the GS guys on ADVRider, I just saved that link to their site....just in case. But the ABS module is just shy of $2,500.00 US, about the same price as the one on the K1200RS.

You would think at that price BMW never expected them to go wrong and be replaced.

You can open up the one's on older bikes so I suspect these are no different. But if it came to replacing internal parts, I wonder where these rebuild firms get their parts from?

Yes that's pretty much what I'd expect, so ask yourself what the 're-conditioners' are doing:

Getting parts made? - difficult with molded seals.

Opening them up, looking for the obvious like fuses, relays and siezed pump, unsiezing stuck pistons and putting it back together.

Has that given you any ideas?

You need to know that the ABS computer checks the pump when you start up and locks it out if it finds it faulty. It's my personal opinion that apart from the obvious like a blown internal fuse, it pulses the pump and monitors the current pulse draw. If the motor or seals are stuck (not used much) the computer condemns your pump for a replacement. Since the dealers won't take safety risks of looking inside the modulator (sealed item no BMW service ops) you are faced with a big bill for a new modulator. It's not for everybody to attempt disassembly and you are dealing with critical brake components (your life).

Now you have got a better idea!
