Re: 05 K1200LT Brake and clutch flush
The procedures are basically the same, as the unit is used on several bikes. The control circuits (the ports you flush ON the ABS unit) are not a critical as the wheel circuits. The manual states to flush 1 then 2 then 3 then 1 again. But I have found very little contaminated fluid from the repeated flushes. Pick the one easy to get to bleed nipple and flush that one. Remember for this flush you don't need the key on. In fact two of the nipples are easier to get to if you remove the connector from the ABS unit.
The wheel circuit do require the key on and some way to ensure you don't empty the black opaque reservoirs that are on the ABS unit.
The one on the left is front the other one is of course the rear sequence.
Almost forgot - bleed port for the clutch is on the right side just about where your shin hits. Remove the chrome trim on the tip over bar and you will find it cable tied to the sub frame with a foam tube covering the bleed port. You just remove the grub screw and push back the check ball and the fluid will just run out. You can do a gravity flush if you have the time.
