i am talking to a good MC shop that i go to for everything, the said, for the 1299, after we bleed the brake, we need to fire off the ABS and do it one more time
thought on this?

I have a air powered vacuum bleeder unit, The vacuum unit is great at pulling fresh fluid through but I wouldn't just rely on it, always finish with build pressure and crack the bleed nipples open to see a solid stream of fluid then call it completed

I've heard that for years at BMW shops, as BMW has been using the Bosch system for quite some time. Stuff like getting into the ECU through a shop computer and making the ABS pump cycle. I never bothered on my previous BMWs, either of my S1000RRs nor on my 1299 when doing complete flushes, and I have always had very good brake feel, especially after switching over to speed bleeders.
