Welcome to the forum Steve.

I'm assuming that is $8k not 8000kms.

Welcome mate. I'm sorry you bought the slow "Ort Grey". That colour was double slow with the silver mill so its not as bad as it could be  Razz   bounce
Please think very carefully if braided lines are a consideration. You'll have no end of fun getting the ABS to work again (and brakes in general) Crying or Very sad

I believe you have to bleed them from the calipers back. With the abs you have quite a long hydraulic line for the front, the part where they mate up from the front calipers to under the head stock does not have a bleed nipple on this model .The later gsx has a revised manifold for want of a better word that has a bleed nipple .
