Question about 2004 BMW R 1150 RT (ABS)
This can happen when you may have introduced air into the hydraulics or moved the ABS sensor out of position. It also happens if you start the bike with a low battery then the brake warning lamp will stay on. This was especially a problem with the 01 and older bikes. It is caused by the battery voltage being below the ABS computers voltage requirement. Charge the battery and ride it, see what happens. These systems are also very finicky about clean brake fluid. This is why BMW wants it changed annually. If the bike has servo brakes check that one of the brake lamp switches isn't sticking on. Please review this service manual for more information:
