    Doug,
    While looking for Steptoe's original post on ADVRIDER stating he could fix some of the ABS units I found this recent thread where he did reveal how it can be done. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...ighlight=fixed See post #11.
    If this doesn't work you may want to PM him and see if he thinks your unit is fixable.
    Another option is to call these guys http://www.modulemaster.com/en/faq/index.php. Although they rebuild BMW car ABS modules they may not want to do a motorcycle; however, my guess is if you get the right person he/she may be able to tell you what the likely issue is with your unit and how it can be fixed. What blows me away is they give a better warranty on their rebuilds than BMW gives on the OEM unit.

    Woo Hoo!

    Did not work on mine - the adapter body has no filter on the end that is inside the modulator. I pulled 1 of the 2 - could not get the corner one all the way out with the wrenches I have - and found the adapter is much shorter than he shows with a needle valve immediately below the adapter. Nice try but no cigar. I plan to give Steptoe a PM anyhow and continue to follow that thread re: ABS modulator failure, for sure it is relevant to my problem. Thanks, Dave.

    Problem solved - with some coaching from Steptoe in the UK, I did a bypass of the ABS modulator for the rear wheel only. As the front brake works fine with the ABS I left it alone and pinched off the 2 exit lines that go to the rear brake pedal and the rear brake caliper. Steptoe cleverly suggested moving the flex line connector directly to the rear brake master cylinder. Works like a champ! I have to be a bit careful as the rear brake can throw the bike into a fishtail if pressed too hard but it is something I will learn to pay attention to. Thanks to everybody for the encouragement and info and especially to Dave for suggesting the wizard in the UK as a resource.
