Sonny, That's a really interesting question that I will immediately state I don't know the answer to but any good BMW shop can. I heartly remommend BMW of Atlanta in Merietta, GA. I take mine there from Bham due to the excellent work and great attitude.
I'm guessing it can be removed since the 2000 model has the system prior to the integral system in place now. My 2003 has the integral power brakes and is a totally different type of system. On mine, the ABS system cannot be disconnected unless you are willing to ride without brakes! This at least is as it was explained to me by a BMW mechanic in Atlanta.
2003 R1150RT, Black Beauty--this is one sexy bike!
1999 R1100GSA, Does everything well, what else can one say?
1992 K75SA, If this engine had been 4-valve instead of 2, it would be the smoothest BMW ever built!
1978 R100S, my first and favorite BMW.
1976 R75/6, A 30 year old gentlemen I still love to take out for a Sunday ride.
