bmw abs removal on r1150rt

hi all,just a thread to anybody who is thinking of removal of the abs/servo unit on their BMW. I have just done mine and its a delight to ride a bike without the fear of complete brake failure, if anyone is contemplating doing it i have the wiring diagram for the electrics. and the brake system changeover to manual.

I am about to do a removal on my 2002 RT Please send my what you have. Thanks.

My 52 reg r1150rt is experiencing the well reported brake failure.  Would appreciate any info you've got to convert it to non abs.  My email is Thanks Huw

des founds, can you tell me where to get the abs bypass kit? Mal 949.371.3573 02 r 1150rt

Hello des founds, the abs serve system on my 2001 R1150RT has failed.  Can you please provide any info you have. Many thanks, Ron Irving

Hello Des Founds, My R1150RT (build 2001) has a iABS brake problem as well. I am very much interested in your documents about the removal of the ABS completely. Gould you please send me your instructions for this? Kind regards, Bert,  

Like many others, mine failed this week.  Can you please send me the information you have. Cheers, Scott,

Yes ever since coming out people have been removing this fine piece of German engineering and many many more issues. I've spent so much time and money on mine with spline lubes, abs, hall sensors failing, starters with magnets falling off, shaft seals etc etc etc ad infinitum I'm just about ready to give up and scrap her with 34,000 miles on the clock. I personally, as much as I enjoy riding it will never buy another BMW, unless I win the lottery and can have 3 and a personal mechanic (and she must have large breasts) it will bankrupt me this bike.

Throwing in the towel

Hi , I bought my 1st BMW last year a 95R1100RS and it has been a constant headache and today the Clutch went bang ! I want to get rid but my girlfriend says its the comfiest bike that she has rode pillion on and loves it.

2004 BMW R1150RT ABS servo removal

Hello Des,
If you have truly got information regarding the removal of this wicked piece of German Revenge would you please share what you have? I am hoping to remove the Servo unit and the accompanying brake lines (replacing all lines with stainless steel braided lines I hope) to simplify this system and return this bike to a more user friendly condition. Thanks and God bless
