If I remove the bleed screws on my 05's calipers and replace with Speed Bleeders, will I need to bleed the brake lines even if I do not turn on the ignition or touch the brake levers?

I'd probably give them a tiny "burp".

+1 on the small burping. As long as that is all you do Tony and you're quick about it the only air should be right at the Caliper bleed port. Worked for me anyway on my '00 years ago!

Tony, when I did mine I had a hard time threading the rear bleeders. I put the old one back in and removed the rear tire and it was MUCH easier to start the thread. When complete I did a quick burp bleed on each bleeder just to be safe (no air came out)

I think he should completely flush the system. It's obvious Tony is bored
after the clutch job.

OK, so tell me about a 'burp' bleed.

Is it the same process as flushing the ABS, but you just burp a little out instead of flushing through -- I just flushed and filled last fall so I should be good -- or is it a different process?
