That will probably require a BMW tech and new brake light switches it's not than easy with the IABS
ABS delete - confused as to what year you are working with? Did you buy a GSA and you're swapping parts over from the burned out wreck, or are you rebuilding the burned out wreck by swapping parts in from an intact GSA? And what years are they?
My 2004 GSA had the ABS delete and I don't think it required much to do it.
Also, @doublemocha , I have a 2.82 31/11 final drive here I can send you (free plus shipping) but that's probably going too far in the other direction. But PM me if you want it, or e-mail--you have my e-mail address from before.
I am putting together one bike from 2 salvage bike. They are 2004 1150gsa, I am using the transmission from the burned bike (my bike) everything else from the salvage bikes plus other used parts. My first time doing this so I do a lot of googling and watching you tube If you have a link on how to delete the ABS please send. I think the hydraulic is easy, basically by pass the ABS and go directly to the to the brake cylinders. The bigger challenge and I still do not understand is the electrical. I will send you a PM. thanks
On replacing the power brake iabs it takes 2 new brake lite switches as the ones on the iabs bike operate backward they are open and close on application, and I believe some wiring needs a work around.

Thank you for this link. I will do this, no re wiring, that is excellent
Making progress, working on the EZS leading link today.
Your having a serious go at this.
What is that rear wheel from? Love it.
Got them from EZS https://www.ezs-sidecar.com/en/over-ezs-sidecar/ they are part of a kit which included the leading link. thx
I was using 175/65 r15. I replaced tires with 165/80 r15 tires about 1.5 taller. Front leading link is EZS https://www.ezs-sidecar.com/en/over-ezs-sidecar/
Did you modify your telelever?
I reinforced it with 1/4" metal plate on top and below. It is over build
Can you measure your wheel base, axel to axcel for me? I'm working through fitting up DB's leading links to my 2004 GS. My wheelbase ends up at 66.5 inches.
mine is 66" center to center wheelbase.
Thanks. Mines not so far off then
Trackwide 49.5 inches, Two connected fuel tanks 6 x 13 x 19 inches. I am not using the OEM fuel tank to lower center of gravity and put weight on the sidecar also for easy access to the engine and other stuff.
I'm sure there's a suggested weight split someplace, I'd ask Claude when sidecars get too heavy they shove the tug around, but 1150s are fat old girls.
Hope Claude chims in here. I think he already chimed in earlier. This cause me to split the tank in two to put more weight in the rear. see picture below on my original design. I am not doing the transfer tank idea the two tanks are connected together with three 3/4" fittings and hose. I also installing a 43PSI fuel pump to push the fuel to the engine. thx
Good work. Keep going. Stay a couple steps ahead of me so I can steel your ideas!
