Question about 2004 BMW R 1150 R

1 Answer

Hi, I have a BMW R1150R (it's a motorcycle, you do those too?) 2004 model. It has ABS servo brakes. Thats great, as long as they work. But my brakes sometimes (quite often) loose the servo, so there only remains about 20% breaking power. Quite annoying. Especially the first time, when you're not prepared for it.. Now I'm used, and plan my riding accordingly, but that's no reason to get it sorted, right? It seems as the ABS also cuts out, which had me locking the front wheel when I had to break harder than planned alnd suddenly the servo kicked back in, but semingly not the ABS. I managed to stay upright, but got pretty sweatty in my boots. I had the bike to a BMW-"certified" workshop, and the mechanic checked the error codes and concluded that all he could see was indication that the voltage had dropped, and that this could possibly cause the malfunction. The advise I got was to replace the battery with an Odessey battery, that wold be able to deliver power better without voltage drop. Now I bought one of these pricey lead lumps, but there's no improvement. What should I do next? /Johan
