r1100s production switched from ABS II to iABS in February 2001. Your 2001 model year bike was probably produced in late 2000 (most if not all U.S. bikes are produced in the fall of the previous calendar year) so I suspect you don't need the BBY funnel and you should just be able to flush at the calipers instead of also having to flush at the ABS module.

ABS II seems to have a higher ABS module failure rate than iABS. You could have the module rebuilt by Module Master, but I don't blame you for saving the weight and money and ditching it altogether.

iABS brakes are power-assisted, the servo make a whirring sound when the bike is on and the brake lever is applied. With the bike off or battery dead, iABS bikes have a very minimal amount of braking capability.
Kyle with an R = Kyler... Get it?
