There is nothing about master cylinder bleed port in the service manual for 07 :-( Or maybe I am blind, but I read section 16-8 - air bleeding and they mention 2 caliper bleeding ports for the front and 1 caliper bleeding port for the rear.
Do I use the same technique but with the bleed port instead? Just squeze the lever, open the port, close port, release lever, repeat.
Do I have to bleed using the caliper ports again?
The brakes are not disastrous! It might still be just me not being familiar with the bike and seeing problems where there aren't any. I definitely can brake confidently and stop the bike very quickly heating the rotors, etc. The lever moves completely freely, then it switches the brake light switch making audible noise, then it moves freely a tiny bit more and then the brake engages. I set the brake lever to position 2 and I can move it approximately 3 cm to the grip. When I really push on it, it feels spongy, but I can brake very hard with 2 fingers.
I am having a track day on Friday, so I might just ask the guys and I think they could bleed it. My friend even has the same bike so we will compare it.
