    2005 R1200RT Disposal

    I'm looking to dispose of my 2005 R1200RT. I'm not willing to sell it whole due to the liability associated with the faulty ABS brake system. I'm in San Diego, and California makes it near impossible to deal with. Anyone have any ideas?

    You could donate it to a non-profit. They have a towing/auction company pick it up, then they sell it at auction. The auction price is a tax deduction.

    Have you considered just bypassing the ABS system (assuming that is even possible with the servo-controlled system)? Also, you might want to post a picture or two in your ads. The body work is often very valuable and knowing something about color and overall condition would be helpful.

    Sell it for parts, no title. Advertise it as such. Remove the ABS, or disable the bike in some way so it can not be ridden.

    So precisely what is wrong with the ABS?

    Yes, I would like to know as well. The ABS on my 2006 works perfectly, and I am a huge admirer of the brakes. The bike seriously stops!

    Yeah, I don't get the reluctance to sell it, but fixing the ABS or bypassing it (totally doable), is what I would do. No need to toss a perfectly good bike in the trash.
