I abs compatibility

Can anyone tell me if the 2002-2004 abs unit the same as the 2005 and up units .I purchased the correct one but uses lost it in shipping and I inadvertently purchased one from a 2005 and was wondering if I can swap over the parts from one to the other.

Re: I abs compatibility

They are similar but not the same. The 2002-2004 has additional lines bolted to it that the 05 does not and it also has reservoir covers with hoses to the storage reservoir where the 05 has the reservoirs built in.

But having said that you could do the swap of the parts that are different but there is no guarantee that it would actually work.

The first one is a shot of the early one and the last is an 05. The 05 has all the bleed ports on top and mounts horizontal where the early one has two bleed ports on the side and mounts vertical.
