Bleed which first

Does it matter which you bleed first on an 05 LT with integral servo abs system, wheel ciruits or control unit?
Wish me luck!

Re: Bleed which first

It doesn't matter. Since they are not tied together. To do the front control and set the level properly you need to remove the handle bar covers and switch gear. Then loosen the clamp on the master cylinder to level it. Also cover ALL plastic near it and place a small piece of metal over the hole at the bottom of the resevoir as it will squirt straight up when you pull the lever.
