I started with the one that had the longest reach to the T junction beneath the triple clamps. If I remember, that was the left side caliper (left side when sitting on the bike).

Speed bleeders are your friends and a great investment if your going to change fluid frequently or are planning on upgrading your lines later.

I like to do the brake fluid once a year....and yes, speed bleeders are a god send. Oh, put some Motul RBF 600 fluid back in...**** is amazing.

Brake fluid absorbs moisture (hygroscopic) from the air (unless it's a full synthetic) and reaches high temps and can flash (steam) when under pressure. Albeit an extreme example condition. So it is recommended to change it every year even if it doesn't look dirty. If you haven't changed it in a while, I bet you will be able to tell a difference when you do. You should get a much firmer feel to the brakes almost like adding stainless lines.

Since I have been running the same brakes since '03, I would imagine the fluid to be just as old. Maybe I will do it this year.....
