1. I don't notice the braking enhanced by the upgrade. The feel at the handle is the same.

I did find that the front control circuit will cause fluid to go out through the wheel circuit (maybe this is the residual function) allowing you to fill the new front lines with the bike off. The rear control circuit would not do this. All seems to be well, at least no dashboard flashing triangles.
On # 1 you won't feel any difference on the integral power assisted brakes. It is more noticeable on the older non-powered bikes.
Yes that is the residual function on this brake system and the rear is almost negligible on residual.
Sounds like you mastered it well!
