Cry Problem with my abs: pressure modulator broken

Hello, I own a BMW R 1200 GS ADV 2008, I took it to the 40.000 km service last week, as soon as I took it out I noticed how the abs system was randomly activating, so I brought it again to the dealer's workshop where they found that the pressure modulator of the abs system was broken, it cost something close to 2000 dollars.

I was wondering if this failure is common in this kind of bikes because it seems really weird that this thing got broken right after I took the motorcycle out from my dealer's workshop.

thanks for your help

Try these people. They have repaired BMW motorcycle ABS hydro units. They also offer a warranty.

I actually talked to Modulemaster today. They are not taking any of our units right now. They are seeing a lot of the same parts, and have no source for things like the pressure sensor boards. They have in the past had some core units to cannibalize from, but not now. They are in the process of getting bids from some companies to make replacement parts like the pressure sensors, misc seals, etc. They think they'll be up and running with this all around January. It's a long time if you don't have a working unit.

If my plans tomorrow don't work out with my own, I have no choice but to pull the unit and connect the brakes up old school. I know there is an issue with the brake switches, but I was wondering if anyone had tried one of these rather than spending $100 on BMW switches....
