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.
Thanks for the detailed info. I gather they are both iABS as they are both servo assisted. The RT is way more sensitive.
Still learning how to cope with unassisted brakes when manoeuvring on inclines after start up. Can be a little scary on the RT due to its weight and centre of gravity.
Any idea what a module rebuild is worth?
