In real terms: If it fails you will end up converting your bike into a non-ABS bike.
Your comment about awesome stopping power is almost an understatement. I've put 48,000 miles on my '04 and it has the most incredible brakes I've ever experienced on a motorcycle. Regarding failure of the ABS unit, there is a place in Idaho (http://www.modulemaster.com/en/index.php
) that now repairs them for about $350 and gives a 5 year guarantee. You can search GSpot for some recent threads on repaired units.
