ABS issues '03 r1150rt
Good afternoon all,
This '03 ,r1150rt is my first foray into a BMW motorcycle. My last bike was an '03 Road King.
My issue is, I bought the bike in April with the abs light flashing at 4hz and the brake light on constantly.
I pulled the relay for the abs to stop the flashing. The brakes never felt bad, although I don't have another BMW to compare.
I was told the dealer said the abs unit needed replacing. I planned on having it rebuilt this winter.
The reason for my post is, recently as suddenly, whenever I apply the rear brake the servos kick in and won't stop. Even when the pedal is released. While the servo or servos are engaged the braking is quite harsh. Oddly this does not occur when the front brake is used. The first time this occurred I could turn the ignition off and restart it eliminating the problem. Not so any more. The fluid levels that I see are within range. My brake light functions with the pedal or lever.
I'm at a cross road of either removing the abs altogether or repairing. I done have the funds for new or dealer service.
Any advise on either direction would be appreciated.
I might add, I had planned on replacing the old rubber brake lines when repairing the abs unit. And I have no idea when the system was flushed last.
