Motorcycle Guys Salvage in Anaheim

$2,650 parts and labor.
$2,100 in parts if I want to do it myself.

That's what I was just quoted by the dealer to replace the ABS module in my '07 BMW. The typical error code is the result of a faulty ABS pump motor, which can be repaired for $250. No, mine is the one-in-a-thousand error that requires a complete replacement. I'd be happy to go without ABS, but my error results in my brake light remaining on solid, which is somewhat of a safety hazard. In their maniacal brilliance, BMW ran the brake light circuit through a brake fluid pressure switch, not a regular 'ole electrical switch like every other bike. That pressure switch is integral to the ABS unit and can't be fixed or replaced by itself.

I just ordered a used ABS module from The Motorcycle Guys Salvage in Anaheim for a few hundred bucks, and I'll fix it myself, thank you very much. Plus, that will give me the time to rebuilt the pump motor before I install it, so I should be able to bullet-proof it to some degree.

Just curious if anyone else here has dealt with Motorcycle Guys Salvage.

Nope, wasn't kidding. But, the same basic components were used on a lot of different BMW models so used stuff is plentiful.

I'm thinking of selling it later this year and getting something new or newer, like an MT09. I'm starting a new job next week, and my wife is going through a bunch of job changes as well, so I'll wait till things calm down before making any big decisions. I still love the bike, so it will be tough decision.

In any case, I just got shipping confirmation on the part from Motorcycle Guys Salvage, so we'll see pretty quick if they're legit.

Theyíre legit... Iíve ordered and also picked up from their warehouse. Shipping was fast also (if you order it earlier today, your parts should be at your front door by tomorrow or the day after).

Iíve had good results too. Bought a few things from them when I rebuilt my 01 VFR.
