    ABS repair - we found someone who is doing it!

    Big update ***fixed by tyler at module master***
    Well here's my big update...Tyler at Module Master (www.modulemaster.com) started to work on BMW early ABS units and became pretty good with repairing them... He wanted to start working and be able to fix servo motor ABS- I-ABS, Integrated ABS, also known as ABS-III- which is the type used on my 2005 1200 GS... Well guess what after much trial and error and sourcing of parts Tyler worked through a lot of tough issues and FIXED IT!!! Wow we have a place to send these now to be repaired...Got the Pressure Modulator back . Steve my BMW mechanic put it in and have put close to 200 miles on it ...NO ISSUES.... Take a look at their web site and see what other car fixes they do ,some amazing stuff... Also if you have any ABS units laying around that you may have replaced ..send them out to Tyler , they need parts and cores because they can't be sourced anywhere...Finally an alternative to paying the Fatherland $2,400...Please post this where other BMW owners can see ...Thanks Pat

    Kinda strange that there's no mention of motorcycles on their website.

    He has gotten up to speed on our BMW ABS systems over the past 6-9 months...He went way ,way, way above and beyond to fix my unit and find a source for the parts, since BMW or FTE (the ABS manufacturer) don't or won't sell and parts or spares.....thats why I stated if anyone has a bad ABS unit send it to thenm so they can cannibalize it for the parts...
    I am sure they don't even need the hassle... These guys are a GREAT resource for the BMW motorcycle community and are there to help...Tyler is the guy to talk to..www.modulemaster.com ...

    12886, (Real Name? Pat?)

    Can you imagine how many more people might open this thread and have some useful info, or perhaps dead whizzy brake ABS modulators if you put the year info in the thread title?

    http://www.bmwmoa.org/forum/showthread.php?t=46055

    Since I don't know the specific years that you're asking people to contact him about, I can't add it.. but perhaps you do know? If so - please share that useful info with us.

    wanted anyone with ABS to open it up and read it not just those people with a 2005 GS... Tyler called me today and said he was getting a lot of calls...Hopefully it's working??

    In some off-line discussion with Pat - we decided the thread title is fine like it is - but the thread may be misplaced (and sort of hidden away) by being in Hexheads. The thread is not hexhead/camhead specific. The repair endeavor is for all BMW ABS systems.. so I'm moving the thread to Motorrad, but leaving a permanant redirect here in Hex/Cam..

    Hang on - keep your hands and feet inside the car for your safety and protection!

    Whooosh...

    I have used Module Masters for an ABS fix for a VW, very good people, fast and good work. Excited to see they were able to get the ABS working for the bikes now too. Hopefully won't need them! but nice to know they are there.

    I've also read consistent positive reports of Module Masters work on VW ABS repairs.

    In the VW realm, the common ABS failure is within the electronics module. To repair it, one pulls the ABS CPU off, leaving the entire hydraulic system untouched and unopened, and mails the CPU off to MM. In the interim, the car's without ABS but the brakes work fine.

    I don't know what the common failure mode is in BMW ABS units - if there is one - but the thread suggests that MM may have the ability to repair mechanical faults in the actuator as well as electronic faults in the ABS CPU. I'd be interested to hear if they actually can do that.

    The problem I have is this, you have someone other than ModuleMasters tooting their horn about ABS repair. Perhaps MM needs to update their website. That way you know they are actively seeking business in that product area.

    Module masters may not understand the need for their services in the BMW motorcycle community yet. Why advertise if you do not know if there is a real market?

    I think that is pretty much what I said. MM is not (apparently) seeking rebuilds in the motorcycle business. If they were, it seems like their website would list bike repairs.

    If you read my original post they just got up to speed on the various generations of BMW motorcycle abs systems.... Geez give them a chance to update their website! I have spoke to and e-mailed Tyler dozen times over the past 6 months..he also interacted with my mechanic Steve former owner of touch of class (certified BMW master mechanic) these guys are legit a simple phone call and you get to talk to Tyler before doing anything... Of course you could go down to your friendly BMW dealer and pay them $2,400 parts and a few hundred labor and they could sell you a new one ...or you can search all over the US and find NO ONE that knows anything about repairing these or you can simply call Tyler at module master..your choice...let's not look a gift horse in the mouth!!!
