ABS pressure modulator

Hi all, Ive just discovered that my pressure modulator has failed. To buy this unit new is 1400 pounds sterling,its an 04 bike,ive found a breakers with an 06 LT, how can you tell if theyre compatable,and would you take the chance with a second hand one ? Theres only 7k on the one in the breakers. Not sure how it failed, could changing the pads and pushing the fluid back have caused it?

Re: ABS pressure modulator

Model change was in 05 but if the changed some thing on the ABS system, or modulator, I don't know but I doubt. Also I don't think that you do any harm to the modulator if you push the pads back in to the end position. Must be something else. Maybe you flush your system first and see if it comes back to live. In case you need a replacement.
One modulator is on the German eBay for 1750,- Euro is a new one. And on the US eBay you will find 7 or 8 of them. This are used ones and start under 500,- $

Hope I could help you

Re: ABS pressure modulator

I look up parts on "MAX BMW" on line site.

AES BMW also has on line parts.

Re: ABS pressure modulator

I think the European '04s are equivalent to US '05s. I've read this several times around the forum. That being the case, the ABS modules should be the same. Posting a picture of the module in your '04 would be most helpful.
