Module Master Rebuilds BMW ABS Pump Modules

I see this info in a couple of other threads but thought I'd add a header that may be easier
to find later on.

Anyone with a BMW that is equipped with ABS, any version, is or may become aware
of the failure problems of the ABS pump that can result in a repair bill of
$2000+.

If you're smart and keep your machine in some sort of warranty, it's not a big
deal. If it's out of warranty or, if you want a fix that is better than the
factory-issue pump, you now have the option of a rebuild that will cost you only
$250 in most cases.

Module Master -

www.modulemaster.com


They're in Moscow !! (Idaho, that is.) Tyler is the main man there and he
knows his stuff. Not only do they do motorcycle modules but they do car units
as well. He is getting a LOT of BMW repairs.

The biggest problem with the BMW pumps is that the commutator brushes inside the
pump motor itself tend to deteriorate. The degeneration apparently is due as
much to time as usage.

Module Master replaces these brushes with better-quality pieces and does the
same with any other internal components that are marginal. They then fully test
the unit and give it a FULL 5-YEAR WARRANTY.

I had the unit on my '07 GS rebuilt and it works fine.

Removal and installation of an ABS pump is not a huge challenge for anyone with
mechanical experience but it does require diligence and a full bleed/flush of
the brake system.

Even if you have to have professional help with the removal/install, Module
Masters can save you around $2000 in many cases and give you a better-than-stock
ABS system.

Sounds like an awesome resource. I wonder if they fix more servo or non-servo pumps? Maybe they will keep track.

I remember back when the fear was the servo pumps would be short lived, but it "appears" that the non-servo pumps are breaking more. Just an observation, not to take away from the point of the thread.

My father has an '07 K1200LT that has a failed module. He has been in contact with Module Master since last December. He was told they would have parts by April 1st....but that came and went....they told him the box of parts they were waiting for from overseas came in empty!!

They are still waiting for parts..........and the season is here

My 2005 R1200GS servo assisted pump just suffered death. I called Module Master and they are still saying it will be another couple of months. I see that they told someone that earlier in this thread 7 months ago. Makes me wonder??? What the heck should I do? Should I purchase a new $2400 part plus labor for a $6000 motorcycle? It makes no financial sense. Any other options?

Owning one of these bikes in the first place makes little financial sense, so why not throw another $2400 at it, and ride.

I am in the same boat and I was worried about what to do.....but then I decided I needed to ride! I still want to get mine fixed but that's a bit too much $$. So I pulled the whole unit in hopes of getting it fixed one day, probably not necessary. I bought the factory non ABS line for the rear and just bent up a short piece of tubing in a "U" shape and bypassed the front part of the ABS unit. The brakes work wonderfully fine! Here is the problem with doing what I did, no speedometer/ odometer. Not really a problem for me as I just use my GPS. I put tape over the lights for the dash that were flashing/on and have been riding it this way for a couple of months with no issues.

The most recent post I've seen indicated they have yet to be able to repair the servo ABS models. Does anyone know if they now can service these pumps?

They've had the servo-ABS unit from my 2002 RT for nearly three months and keep saying they can fix it "any day now". The bike actually works better without ABS, but I'll re-install it if I can get it fixed.

Sorry if this sounds stupid but how do you know if your abs module needs to be rebuilt?

ABS light on, no ABS is an indication. Though these things do happen for other reasons. If you bike is working normally, it is fine.

My abs pump was out. Dave Campbell in Santee sent it to Module Masters. Worked for about a month and went out again.

Send it back. It has a five year warranty. Tyler is very good to work with. I had to have a little more work done to my ABS2 unit after 18 months. It cost me only the postage to send to them (flat rate postal box) and the time to pull it out, put it back in, and bleed the brakes (1 hour total combined).
