ABS can be expensive to repair or replace, if it was not maintained, so try to find out if it has been serviced. Rear seal can be checked, but a non issue with 96%.beau7561 said:I was told by local BMW service guy about a small chance of ABS problem but unlikely and the rear seal problem was due to people over loading the bike and possibly towing at the same time. Any thoughts. Bike is pristine. Thanks very much. Beau
Bob I agree with you on #1 but I beg missinformation on #2 . The fluid is all changed during a flush and you don't need to "stand on the brakes" to get the fluid out of the ABS. Some older automotive ABS units did not pass any fluid unless activated, not the case here. Also +1 on the rest of your advice.BecketMa said:1. Make sure you find another service tech. "... rear seal problem was due to people over loading the bike and possibly towing at the same time."
2. If I remember correctly, trick is to make sure the fluid is pumped by standing on the brakes to exercise the ABS, Changing the brake fluid does not make sure that fluid contacting the ABS has been drained.
