Question about 2003 BMW R 1150 RT (ABS)
I've heard of problems being caused with the ABS on BMWs because of battery problems. Sounds daft I know but it seems that unless the battery is 100% there can be many odd electrical gremlins. Easier to check than having to replace parts of the ABS kit.

Hi, the procedure for bleeding the brake lines on this motorcycle are really beyond the scope of the home mechanic, it involves removing the tank to gain access to the abs module, and the process is very involved and must be done in a very strict order. I would suggest that you entrust this to your local BMW dealership.

I would take it in to get the ABS system serviced - you may have introduced air into the hydraulics or moved the ABS sensor out of position. If oyu have the power-assist brakes, you will notice that there isn't any - assist, that is.

I would check the brake pads first to see if they are worn badly, spent a lot time once learning that will cause ABS lights to flash!
Grounding the middle pin on the ABS diagnostic plug , turn on the ignition and mash both brakes to see if the bulb checker light goes out! Very important, left out of procedure on IBMWR, if the red bulb checker light doesn't go out you have a blown tail light or stop light bulb and the ABS won't reset!
Or you have a bad bulb checker module underneath the seat. If the red light goes out then the ABS lights should go to flashing then push the ABS reset button and hold for slow count of 10 or so. Release and try it. Hope this helps!

Sounds like one of two things(assuming your batery is healthy), regulator is on its way out or/and check the supply cable going into/out of the unit, also check the earth lead. Best way to check is using a multimeter, check voltage on idle should be between 13.5 &14.5 v, turn on lights it will drop momentarily before rising again. Rev the engine and voltage should start to rise again, if not regulator is suspect.good luck
