Question New Servo-LESS ABS system- Retro fit to Older LT's?

Reading more and more about the Servo-less ABS system... Does anyone know if the new system can be Retro - fit to older Pre -07 LT's?

Is it even cost effective to do so when ABS goes TU ?

Pre '02 are servoless ABS, don't know what is going to be different in the '07 on. One BMW blurb said it was ABS II, which is what the pre '02 ones were, but probably with different controls. The pre '02 bikes ABS was a pretty long period "on/off" system, hopefully they have incorporated the much shorter on/off timing of the later servo brakes into the "new" ABS II.

I would imagine that retrofitting any of the different systems would be a bit of a challenge though.

My dealer told me that the 07 LT brake system is the same as the previous year's. Dick
