Fish...

I think you said when you put your bike in the shop...that you were going to have the pipes redone...if that's the case...was it because it was necessary (plating coming off etc.)? How do those pipes when treated hold up?

True. They didn't hold up very well at all. Started seeing
white nodules right after I put the jethot coated headers
on about 9 months ago, and on the way back from choopa,
one of the headers was peeling off. I've asked for a more
durable coating this time. It should last a long time.

Bumping this back to the top, lest we forget. I've heard from a few folks offline who have filed complaints as well, but haven't heard from anyone who's seen things move any further. So has anyone here heard back from the NHTSA?

Add me to the list...

I am under the numbers affected also. I have felt the modulation of the rear pedal was nonexistent. I start to rely on the front lever because it is easier to modulate. That is baaaad! Especially when you get on a different bike:-)

Excuse me asking this as im a new commer to this forum
Ive obtained the part numbers from some sources of the change. which this post relates to.
It seem the Mod is the rear cylinder goes from 13 mm to 14.7
at about 10/01 manufacturing. ( Some mysterious german parts CD indicates this ?? )

My bike is a UK R1150RT registered 03/02 but parts on the bike
tend to have date code about end of 2001 as you might expect.

Any one know how to tell the difference between the two rear Cylinders ? Just want to check this for myself before I get worried about replacing ABS modualtors and keeping an eye on this.

PS thanks for the info so far..whatever the source

welcome to the asylum, marka1150

part numbers:
Modulator: 34 51 7 667 322
Master cyl: 34 31 7 654 901
(note, these might be off a digit or two...the fax is hard to read)

Is your bike in the suspect VIN range (ZE87454 and under)? If not, an easy way to tell is when you grab the brake lever with the ignition on, but bike not running, the servos will make a very different sound. In fact, it sounds a LOT like one servo running, rather than both (which in fact, is one of the points of the new modulator...it shuts off the rear ABS at idle to save battery power).

Anybody else have any physical clues to tell the difference?
