Brake bleeding

Does anyone know the procedure of bleeding the brakes on Atas, assume you have to run abs pump to bleed system like the Fireblade?

The standard 16/17 is a normal manual bleed procedure. Is the ATAS made differently?

I've done the brakes on my '16 and it didn't require any special procedures. Just the standard method of pump the brakes and bleed them out into a container and top them up as they get low. No issues at all and took only about 1/2 an hour.

don't forget that the Fireblade uses the terrible combined ABS system which is why bleeding them is torture.
The AT doesn't use this system (thank god) so bleed away happily

2 wheels is always enough!
