Re: Bleeding ABS brakes
Not familiar with the ABS-equipped 01 F650GS system, But posted to see if will help out at all.
I have bleed the brakes on the 02 K1200LT 3 (ABS Integral) 3 times and have had no ill effects.
I do not use a Vacuum pump. I bought Speed Bleeders for all of the bleeder valves except the ABS unit itself and just used the servos to flush/replace the fluid in all of the 4 loops.
I have followed the attached instructions every time.
I also leave the battery charger on the battery when I do this as it will kill the battery quickly if you flush all 4 systems one after the other.
If you are careful and do not introduce air into any of the systems you should be golden.
