Re: 2002 I-ABS Brake line replaced...getting ready for the bleeding..
I have a K1200LT and have a similar problem. I blew the rear brake hose that is behind the kick plate on the right side by the rear pedal. I have the integral ABS, servo assist, etc.
I installed the new line and I have pumped and pumped the rear brake. I can't find any instructions on bleeding the ABS module. It looks as if there is some type of intervenous fill spot under the front seat off to the left. that runs down into some other brake lines that trickle to the front and the back. There are also 2 bleeder valves on the other side of this. When I hit the brakes you can still hear the pumps trying to do their job. Hopefully, this means that the pumps have not burned out due to the lack of fluid.
Naturally, I blew the hose on a Saturday night 700 miles from home and rode back with the front brake only.
I filled the one half of the reservoir under the rear seat. The other half was still full.
Could anyone provide some easy to follow and print instructions on how to get the brakes primed so I have the rear again and no air in the system?
