Here's my info source for the changeover: ABS faults

I'm also aware that Spiegler sells 2 different SS brake line kits for ABS bikes. One is marketed for 1998-2001 bikes, the other one is marketed for 2002-2004 bikes. This backs up the claim that the changeover was in February 2001 production.
Here's the link for Spiegler: https://spieglerusa.com/brakes/brake-lines-accessories-tools/cycle-brake-line-kits/make/bmw/model/r-1100-s.html

Spiegler mistakenly lists them both as being for ABS II, but I'm aware of a fellow pelicaneer who installed the latter kit on an iABS bike (SEE POST # 8 HERE R1100S Spiegler Brake Line Kit). The lines are different for ABS II vs iABS, so it seems clear to me that Spiegler made a mistake on their listing.
