I just purchased an 06 R1200RT today. The seller informed me that his local dealer declared the ESA motor as dead after trying to shock it back to life. Dealer quoted $2500 replacement. I got a very fair deal on this Rt with 10000 miles.

I rushed off to eBay in search of a replacement which I found and bought for $400 + shipping. Things are looking up! :dance:

Nothing I have ever done on a BMW has proved to be this simple and I am trying to anticipate what lies around the next bend.

Any insights from you knowledgable members? What shoe may drop? Software recognition? Special tools? Anticipated labor hours?

I appreciate any input.

I have changed these out before and had no issues, nice to have a impact gun for the front shock. Kind of tight but they fit. If your not positive last time the brake fluid was changed have it done. Its complicated but can be done by a self mechanic. Do a serch for posts dealing with servo brake bleeding, both wheel and control circuits. Enjoy the new bike. Buy the factory service DVD.
