    Rear brake

    The rear brake lost the pressure and stopped working. The dealer suggested ordering a pressure rod. But now a days, you can't just order small parts from Thailand. So, had to buy the entire master cylinder for the rear brake, which took almost 40 days to arrive. Got it done and before I reach home the brake lost the pressure again. Now they are saying that it may be the ABS pump. Is that really possible? If the ABS pump is faulty then the bike's display would show some warning, right?

    keerthi,

    ABS pump failure is very common in Gen1 XR's. This is were a 911 WiFi could save you allot of time and money. The 911 WiFi can find faults and check your ABS pump.

    Best,

    Motoscan can do this also.....at less than 1/4 the price of the GS-911. I have both and Motoscan is getting slowly/progressively better with constant updates etc...

    Probably not. Three people with a problem will have made loads of noise all over the web. 800 people will have repeated the three peoples rants. 30,000 people with no problem will have said nothing.

     Do not have a statistical study to reference. Just going by what Eurosports of Asheville, NC has conveyed to their customers.

     From a personel note I have three riding buddies that have had ABS module issues with 2016 & latter XR models. Our understanding is the ABS model has been updated. Replacing the ABS model is not cheep.

    I know many XR, R & RR owners and not one has had an ABS module issue...I believe they all use the same/similar module. One chap had an ABS issue which turned out to be a broken ABS sensor on the front wheel caused by an overzealous tire fitter....but no module failures that I'm aware of.

    I live in Vientiane and my nearest BMW dealer is in Udon Thani in Thailand but the border has been closed for for more than 1.5 years so I am learning to manage such challenges. Perhaps you can consider buying the GS 911 to identify the fault.I did and it is easy to use even for an amateur like me.Maybe there is someone that you know that may have the GS911 tool that you can borrow? Presumably , if it shows the abs pump as the problem, the new ABS pump from the dealer will cost a lot of money so it might be useful to look in the USA or Europe (Germany!)  for one? I know that import taxes are high in TH but you may be able to get around that through friends or family and perhaps get the part faster .If it is not an expensive fix then back to the dealer 😁

    Tyre fitters...  :005: loose wheels for me, I fit my own back to the bike, learned the hard, and expensive, way..  :013:

    OP, early aprilias were fitted with pretend rear brakes, I did over 40k miles on multiple aprilias with no, effective, rear brakes, hardly use the rear now.. so you should be OK to ride until you have the $$$$'s and or the parts to sort the problem, if indeed, it is the ABS module :187:
