    My R1100RT is pretty much the same, was a little rattle when the ABS set itself and every time I took off after a stop when riding any distance. My rattle is a lot louder as the miles go on but I'm almost sure it's because the ABS mounts are pretty worn out and there is some contact with the Module and mounting frame that is metal to metal.

    I should fix that.

    rattle

    thanks for the reply, funny enough while I had the gearbox out last month I noted the top screw on the battery mount to the abs module was missing I replaced it, will get my son to ride it while I listen, we are off to Pennsylvania next weekend to the four Winds BMW rally looking forward to getting some miles on her, bye for now ,Jimmy
