RE: 2002 R1150R


My 2003 K1200LT has the integrated brakes, as does the 2004 R1150RT loaner
bike that I rode last week. The brakes on my LT are impressively powerful,
and easy to get used to. BMW has gone back and forth for several years on
the issue of servo-assisted brakes. They most definitely do work.

I need some info about the 2002  R1150R ABS.
My son is about to buy that bike with 15,000 km on the clock. This bike has 
that integrated brake system(?) which I am not familiar with. As soon as the

brake lever or foot brake touched a little wining noise heard. We were told 
that this is the pump for the integrated system, engaging front and rear 
brake for the touch of the hand brake lever. Also the motor vibration at low

RPM seems to be excessive. Later on BMW returned to the old brake system, 
abandoning this integrated version.
Any experience??? Advice???
Thanks in advance
