2008 R1200R ABS with 12k miles
Brakes have never been bled.

I've done this service on an R11S and other servo bikes.
This '08 gen ABS I haven't.
I've read the tech threads BTW.

Two questions:
1) What is the point of removing the calipers as shown on the one tech thread.
2) Can I just pump and bleed on this '08 model as one would on any other non ABS bike ?
