    Not the issue the earlier R/RT's had with multi-point bleed whizzy brakes, the pump from '07 R's and up bleed at the calipers only. I replaced one about a year back and it went very smoothly. Mentioned in another thread about needing a long shank torx to remove the bracket and pump.

    Is this the code you have seen? it was the brush issue and MM sent the unit back, bench tested and sealed. Installed, bled,rode. Light and fault gone,

    i am not positive if that is the fault code, although i think it is. i will hook the GS911 up tomorrow and see and then report back here.


    EDIT: with wind chill values hovering around -20 the past few days i will wait until it warms up a little before i go out into my unheated garage to hook up the GS911

    Did you drain your brakes prior to removing the ABS module?
    Also, was there any trick to getting the plug off. Mine is not coming easy and I don't want to break it. I did pull up the tab.

    I drained the front bar reservoir to stop the gravity drain once I removed the lines. The connector came off easily, just make sure it is getting clearance to completely disengage. Unless all the way in release mode,it's not coming off I recall.
