Blown ABS Control Unit / HU

Welp, it seems that I have fried my "ABS Control Unit / HU" on my '12 DL650
Was working on the bike rerouting some wires and cables, disconnected the leads from the Eastern Beaver ABS Cut-Out Bypass switch and didn't notice that they grounded against the fork until I saw arcing. Turns out the switch is on the hot side of the relay fuse and I had forgot to disconnect the battery. When I turned the bike back on the ABS light came on and stayed on even over 5mph. Did the diagnostics and found I had a code 35 & 42. Cleared the codes but the 42 kept coming back. Ran those diags and it came back as a bad ABS Control Unit. I've really done myself in by not following standard practice and disconnecting the battery. Pissed.
So:
1) Any suggestions? I could ride without ABS but I'm headed to Alaska for 2 months this summer and would really like to have it..
2) Anyone have a line on a ABS Control Unit / HU part #55610-11J01? Partzilla has it for $1,382.76 and I'd really rather not spend that much. There is one on eBay for $400, but again... am hoping someone might have a bike they are parting out.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Just asking...but did you check ALL the fuses with a 12VDC test lamp?
The lesson here is to disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery before attempting any electrical work on any vehicle.

If it is really fried then ebay would be my number one choice. Like Maz says, look for a blown fuse before throwing in the towel. Do you have the wiring harness schematics?

M7, it's a difficult concept for many to understand, but the days of "Get a code, get a part" are long gone, have been for many years.
The code(s) never tell you the failed part, just the area or system in which the failure occurred.
So many times a customer would come back to the parts department holding an oxygen sensor, telling the counterperson he was sold a bad 02 because he replaced it and the code came back. And that's just one of many examples

In your normal day to day riding have you ever activated the ABS?

Outside of an emergency you should never activate the ABS unless you're practicing panic stops or just want to see if it works! Don't even know it's there kind of thing.

I would ride it without ABS before I would spend big money, but that's just me!

Hi, I am parting out most of my 2012 DL650, the ABS unit is all good, $220AUD, or $160USD sound OK, probably $50AUD postage, but I can confirm.

M7, it'd still a forehead-slapper to spend $220, time, and effort when the problem COULD be a blown $.45 fuse...
