Great write up with pictures, thanks for taking the time to post it. I have a question though. I am not totally familiar with a vacuum brake bleeder, just purchased one, and only used it on my truck once. But should it not be able to remove air from brake system regardless of where or how caliper is situated on bike? In other words should you not be able to just attach vacuum bleeder device to bleeder bolt with caliper still bolted in position on bike? As long as you can get at bleeder bolt and fit it that is? The reason I ask is my red SSS required rear brake bleeding and my local dealer did it under warranty and did it fairly quickly so I am not sure they even dismounted caliper??

You can use the vacuum bleeder with all the brake components installed. Just keep the reservoir from draining and you'll be fine. Air will come out.

In my experience, vacuum is the best and easiest way to bleed it. Jippo is 100% right.
