I think that was true in single or twin pipe systems to avoid contamination. Now that all the pipes go back to either the master cylinder or the ABS unit it is not so important.

should still be the furthest away from the master cylinder as that one will most likely have the most air in the system, and since its a duel system then also bleed the diagonal opposite of that one as that will be on the same circuit ....and if you can use a pressure bleeder...its much easier and also let you see any leaks

Gordon will you stop asking people to pm you to get a copy of the Haynes manual ....its rather obvious what your intention is ..IE you will send them one, especially as you then come on with "they have one now" ...use the pm system and keep it off the open forum please ...I think you know why :axed:
