ABS Pump:- Removing it for Repair

Ok after 3 years of just basic maintenance and a lot of fun riding the old girl I have the dreaded ABS problem.

The brake ABS light is flashing real quick like 4 times a second and the ! light is on constantly.

My bike's a UK 2004 so i has the servo assisted brakes with no servo working on the rear pedal / brake. The front is fine.

I have made the decision to get the pump refreshed (In Germany) its a lot of cash but I like the bike and if I keep it 5 more years its well worth it, besides its worthless with no ABS and the idiot light flashing like a strobe.

My question is looking at the rear sub-frame and the battery / box of gubbings right behind the ABS pump do I need to remove the back of the bike or can this be removed without major surgery

First Post so Hello peeps..... I have been hanging around for years

Re: ABS Pump:- Removing it for Repair

That box behind the ABS pump is the reverser controller and it mounts with just a few bolts and should come out without having to remove the sub frame. That will give you room to remove the ABS pump. It does have three heavy Black/Yellow stripe wires with one going to battery +(has a red sleeve), one goes to the starter tie point (black sleeve) and the last going to the ground tie point (brown sleeve). Then it should pop out. It also has two barrel connectors.

Re: ABS Pump:- Removing it for Repair

That sucks. I've recently sold my similar age 2004 built K1200GT with iABS to another bloke, and within 2 months the rear ABS has faulted, similar to yours.
Been trying to help him out with it with info, and helping removing the dash light in the ABS and warning lamps (his request,not my suggestion) but not much else I can do.
I doubt he'll pay to have the iABS repaired if it can be... but I'll pass on any details you post if it works out.
good luck

Re: ABS Pump:- Removing it for Repair

Yeah its a real bummer to be honest but could have been worse I guess..... Ok the company in Germany that does the rebuilding is Rhelectronics, if you search for type-am1 you will see our ABS pump used in the later K1200LT models

Reading the translated blurb this is the device I have with the two motors and the quick release fittings etc.... It's an expensive option and I believe in the UK one company may also have a look at this device but Google has been unable to point me in the correct direction.

Once I have it out I will check the part number and use that in my search engine.

I really love the bike so it has to be done although RH also make a Block with a bit of electrical trickery that replaces the whole unit and does away with the ABS side in its entirety.

This may be a better option really as the rebuild is guaranteed for two years whist the block has no moving parts to fail etc... Its also quite expensive but is a fit and forget option.

Thanks for the updates on the Reverse Control module and I will attempt to remove it tonight UK time

Re: ABS Pump:- Removing it for Repair

I have the same failure on my 05LT. I am interested in the unit from Germany that
removes the ABS entirely. Right now waiting for translation of invoice
to English , so the bank will be happy to make a transfer.

Re: ABS Pump:- Removing it for Repair

I couldn’t ride this beast without ABS.
Mine failed back in 2011.
Replaced it with a brand new unit at $4,200 after importing it here. It was stupid money but had no options or knowledge at the time and I was in love (still am) with this thing.

So, it’s been good for the past 8 years.
I think the original failure was caused because a rat ate a brake hose and the pump ran dry on the front circuit. So only rear brakes.

I have two servo units from the K12R and one from the K12LT.

How much is Rhelectronics charging nowadays?

Re: ABS Pump:- Removing it for Repair

Ok I finally wrestled out the reverse unit and have taken a piccie of the ABS Pump. Mine is an FTE S2AB90039

I've located a UK company that can repair these, the price looks good and they are a world wide operation. I will say that whilst I was changing the brake lines I removed the fluid from the bar mounted reservoir to aide the flushing.

In all the years I have been spannering I have never seen brake fluid that looked like Yogurt. Seriously flush the brake lines this weekend on your bike. I have no idea what could do that to the fluid other than the OE lines breaking down with age.

Fingers crossed that this company can do the business and If they come through I will post the Name and I think they will be very busy.

My replacement lines were made in the UK but I was not at all impressed with the fittings (I am currently talking with them so await a response before I name and shame them.)

Re: ABS Pump:- Removing it for Repair

By now most folks realize the servo systems actually have 4 separate fluid systems. Each needs to be bled separately. But I do see posts where it seems this knowledge has not gotten to the owner. In a damp climate, every year, even though the manual says different.

Re: ABS Pump:- Removing it for Repair

That reminds me to change it.
Almost afraid to change it. These things have a way to get broken if messed it. It’s jinxed.

I do it every two years. But I live in 60-80% humidity.
Will change to yearly.

I replaced the brake lines with Spiegler. They are of awesome quality, and they sell the exact kit for K12LT.
Hope you resolve the issue, or return them.

Re: ABS Pump:- Removing it for Repair

I agree with the every year flush. I did mine last year and just changed it again and it was pretty dark for only one year. Florida humidity is not good for brake fluid!

Ok this is a message to anyone who's taken the ABS pump out.

Firstly how did you get the electrical plug off the module (I don't want to damage it) and then how on earth did you get the whole thing out.

It feels like the pump is solid and I've removed all the fixings I can see.

I've taken the front fixing out and the top fixing that holds the transfer tube to the inner rearmost line.

It feels like its still fixed to the battery tray

Frustrated in England

Re: ABS Pump:- Removing it for Repair

Ok after a lot of grunting and groaning the things finally out. I didn't realise the unit stays on the carrier. If Sombody looks at this in the future I had to pry under the pump against the frame as the unit is held by 4 pegs that slot into rubber gromits in the tray.

Right now I don't love this bike so I am looking forward to getting this sorted so I can learn to enjoy it all over again.

I'll keep you all appraised as the refurbishment continues, it's crazy but right now £25 in parts would bypass the abs altogether but in reality I've gotten used to the brakes and they do inspire confidence when two up.

Not so sure about a gravel car park mind.

I suppose as it's got so much of its clothes off I should change the fuel and air filters

Re: ABS Pump:- Removing it for Repair

Look at the end of the connector opposite the wires. You will see a small slot, place a flat blade screw driver in the slot and pull out ward with the driver. That part of the connector will slide out and jack the connector upward and off.

The lines I bought in the UK were sourced directly from Venhill. I could not find spiegler lines in the UK.

There are two lines on the rear and 3 of the 4 fittings were not the same shape as the OE lines.

2 of the front 4 lines had different shaped fittings I.e the angle of the elbows etc.

The front left as you sit on the bike is 10-15mm too long and so pushes up the hard line into the bottom yoke so I will need to keep an eye on that.

Honestly they are OK but that's all they are.

I cannot recommend them and that does not make me happy.

Re: ABS Pump:- Removing it for Repair

Hello Guys, My name is Jan and i'm a LT1200 2003 owner for about a year now.

Recently i found a few drips off brake fluid on the floor right under the abs unit. When i inspect the unit, i see oil on the outside of the 2 motors on the unit. Also have ABS and ! flashing on the dash.
I am going to remove the ABS Unit, screw it apart and put new o-rings in. i found a good tutorial for this on youtube. Unfortunently there is no info about the side and material of the new o-ring he has put in.
So i have two questions :
- are there any pics or procedures on this forum that shows how to remove the abs unit on an K1200LT 2003?
- does anyone knows what meterial the O-rong has to be in order to be compatible with the brake fluid.

BTW i learned already a lot reading all the stuff on this forum. Great job guys !!!

Many thanks

Re: ABS Pump:- Removing it for Repair

I have taken a few apart for parts but was not aware there was a video, could you post a link to it here? I am away from my computer or I would post my many pictures of the "guts" . You need a "tri" bit to unscrew the halves of the unit (like an offset Phillips with three blades.

OK I think I found it here

Re: ABS Pump:- Removing it for Repair

Before i begin to remove the abs unit, does the battery tray has to come of with the pump or do i concentrate only on the pump?

Thanks for the info

Re: ABS Pump:- Removing it for Repair

No the Battery tray can stay in situ. You will need to remove the module for the reverse drive though. A few fasteners and sadly you need to remove the cables to it. There's a big earth and also a live that goes straight to the battery.

You will need to un-clip a lot of the cable ties as the wires get in the way but it can be done... Once the abs hard lines are out just wiggle it upwards and the 4 pegs will come out of the rubber bushes in the tray. The ABS unit stays in its carrier that fold the top hard line

Take the batter out as it will give you more hand room. I also removed the fixing at the front of the battery tray as that allowed one of the hard lines more movement.

Have a look at this picture..... You can see the caddy that the ABS unit sits in.... I didn't have the correct bits to remove it so sent the whole lot away for repair... I should hear this week fingers crossed.

Can you spot the Ear plugs

Re: ABS Pump:- Removing it for Repair

Thanks for the info.

Getting it all out in most of the cases isn't a problem. Getting it back in is a pain in the ..... .

Earplugs, yes, i was wondering what these orange things were.

Re: ABS Pump:- Removing it for Repair

She's finally out. Took me an hour and 16 different bits. Clearly there is a leak at the bottom of the motor side. Bought the bit (5 point torx with central hole) to open it. Normally i should receive them on tuesday. Keep in touch

Re: ABS Pump:- Removing it for Repair

Ok my ABS pump is now back with me all repaired and new looking. BBA Reman have corrected the two issues they found with the unit and have sent it me back for a combined cost that includes the VAT at 20% and the return postage ...

That cost was £240

Ive got to put it back in and checks its all OK but I'm very happy with that kind of cost.....

Ill keep you appraised as it moves along.

For anyone who wants their details they are BBA Reman in the UK based in Rochester Kent and their contact details are 01634 687222

They have a global presence and so if you need them go to Home (GB) | BBA Reman

Re: ABS Pump:- Removing it for Repair

Looking forward to a good report from you. That was a great price ($311 US). Our cost would be higher with shipping from the states but I think this beats the other guys in Germany.

They have locations in the US at well. I did speak to them and said they may find they get very busy once news is out.

I'm sure many bikes have been parted out because of this issue

I'm going to be fitting this over the next week or so

Re: ABS Pump:- Removing it for Repair

This week i've disassembled my abs unit, there was one bolt that i had to remove with grip pliers. I'am goining to replace the special bolts with allan ones.

Now i am looking for the new o-rings and oil seals. For what i know now is EPDM the best rubber that is compatible with brake fluid.

For the O-rings i've measurerd :

- O-ring @ bottom and top of the motor : cord diameter is 2 mm innerdiameter 38.8 mm (4x needed) (1 in pic)
- O-ring @ bottom of soliniode : cord diameter is 2 mm innerdiameter 32.9 mm (2x needed) (2 in pic)
- O-ring @ bottom of ceramicpump : cord dia 1.5 mm inner diameter 8 mm (4x needed) (3 in pic)

- oil seal on shaft of motor : dia shaft is 5 mm dia housing 15 mm height is 5 or 6 mm

i'am having dificulties in finding the oil seals in EPDM. If anyone knows where and how, please leave a message.

Thanks

check out the O-ring store: https://www.theoringstore.com They have a really large selection of O-rings in all kinds of sizes in EPDM. They stock full sizes of metric - so you wont find a 38.8mm; but they will have a 39mm which I imagine is close enough: +0.2mm. I sourced larger O-rings for the oil filter on my K12RS to stop a leak due to either the cover or pan being off a bit.

The website is easy to use. Probably not the cheapest place, but they will very likely have what you need.

Re: ABS Pump:- Removing it for Repair

OK thanks man, i’ll have a look at that website. I asked prices in France (WWW.Francejoint.fr) but no reply yet.

The O-rings should be easy to order in EPDM, it is the shaft seal i am concerned about. In most cases they only have them in NBR.

Re: ABS Pump:- Removing it for Repair

Awaiting the price for the seals of the abs unit, i wonder what is the right way of filling and bleeding the abs unit (assuming i can built it in again). Does anyone knows the procedure for that? Thanks in advance

The procedure is described in the BMW service manual (actually CD-ROM) and there used to be a pdf on this site that walked through the process pretty well. Not sure if that file still exists after the site revamp as I know several things seemed to get lost.

I can no longer find the file that I downloaded many years ago, but this one should help you. https://www.bmwlt.com/forums/attachm...lines-rev4.pdf

I'm sure many bikes have been parted out because of this issue

Thanks for sharing this info, It is very interesting, I currently may have ABS pump failure also, My left hand caliper seals went and I was luckily just stopping for fuel off the motorway when I felt the brake lever going a little soft, The abs warning started to flash and I managed to stop and after having a look around the bike noticed that there was brake fluid on the caliper and pipe fittings. I have stainless lines fitted so I am hoping that once I get the calipers refurbished I can bleed the system and all will be OK. If not then it looks like a phone call to this company for an ABS refurb. The cost seems quite reasonable. My bike is 2005 so should be same system. I would prefer to keep the servo system on the bike if possible.

Re: ABS Pump:- Removing it for Repair

If you lost fluid and the lights were flashing alternately, it may have just been low fluid level due to the caliper seal leak. If so you should be alright once you get it back together.

I hope you are correct about it being just low fluid levels. I am still waiting for the refurbished calipers to be returned.
But the good thing being able to get the servo unit refurbished at a reasonable cost if required. Hope to have it all back together some point next week.

Re: ABS Pump:- Removing it for Repair

there's an outfit in Moscow Idaho that does this repair now for lt pumps. I was going to send mine in but turns out it was a bad wiring harness. may I suggest you mess with the wiring harness near where it attaches to the frame above it. I removed the tiewraps jiggled the wires and low and behold the veer noise started right up when I squeezed the lever. not saying it isn't the pump but mine wasn't! thought it was but then, I was mistaken. I'll see if I can find the reply I got from them but google abs pump Moscow, id and it should come up. slightly cheaper than Germany and less shipping if you use uspl flate rate box. I did mention it in a post on here a year back too. https://modulemaster.com/rebuilds/sh.../abs-fte-abs3/ appears they aren't doing it yet. maybe a call.

I think modulemaster has been going to be capable of repairing iABS units in “6 more months” for at least 10 years now...

They did my 2008 RT’s abs unit (whatever type that is) a couple of months ago. Totally satisified.

Re: ABS Pump:- Removing it for Repair

Module Masters fixed my iABS Teves.
But the iABS servo they are still unable to fix.
And they’d make a pretty penny on those too...

It is an S-10 but you really don't need them if you buy the speed bleeder bag and hose. Hook up the hose and elevate the bag and open the bleeder and pump away. Any air bubbles will NOT travel down the hose so it makes it a one man operation. I have been doing this for years on the LT. The speed bleeder nipples have a thread sealing compound on the threads that make it difficult to move them and tell when they are fully seated. But their bag is fantastic and only $6.00 (last time I checked).

Re: ABS Pump:- Removing it for Repair

Finally found the oil seals in EPDM for my ABS unit. I went all arround the world for them. They cost like gold since they are so special i guess (€60 a piece). Still a lot cheaper then a complete new pump.

Hopefully this will sove the leakage.

Keep in touch

Re: ABS Pump:- Removing it for Repair

Ok so I had the day of work today and have finally fitted the repaired ABS module into the bike, Its Working better than ever. To say I am chuffed doesn't come close. I did have a bit of trouble with the electrical connection as I managed to bend a pin.

No matter it straightened out ok and i have now put it all back together.

So we have a repair for the ABS evo brake system.

Re: ABS Pump:- Removing it for Repair

Congrats but you did repair a leaking unit only since you you no other failure like a pressure sensor or actual pump motor (well I guess the fact you opened up a motor and got it back together is fantastic). But that does not diminish what you have accomplished - well done. Now if you could make up a good list of all the bits you used that would be a big help for the group here. Thanks in advance!
