I bought a brake bleed kit which comes with the plastic m10x1 fittings to be able to plug straight into abs unit to force the air out so fingers crossed this plus a new MC will fix the issue!

Just saw this post, having read the Rob Robinette M/C bleed guide ages ago couldn't find a kit in the UK https://robrobinette.com/bleeding_th...r_cylinder.htm

Cheers for the heads up on where you can get them from
