Re: Finally "threw in the towel" and bought a new Brake modulator
I can't remember what year yours is but I presume it is an early one since you call it a modulator and not a pump. In any case if all is well it should not have a "stored" fault code and not require a reset. If yours is an integral system it self clears any faults once they are fixed so you should be OK as well.
OK I went back and you have an 04. When you install it you should fill the reservoirs pushing fluid up from the front and rear calipers through the ABS unit and the long tubes to the reservoir by the saddle bag. Fill the front reservoir and bleed it out the inboard tall bleed nipple. Once you do that and bleed the rear control (res is already full) via the outboard tall nipple you should be OK and have no faults if the unit is OK.
The dealer test is a good idea as it will let you know if you got all the air out of the lines and if you have any weak hoses. If all is well with the install you should see the wigwag lights go out after you roll a few feet. Just take it easy until you are satisfied it is functioning right even if you don't get any new faults.
