Thanks, guys. On the smaller KTM's I have had to let it sit overnight with the reservoir cover cracked to get it to bleed out. It was a pain. I had heard about the syringe as well but never tried it.

Nice vids. I don't blame you for going carburated for your journey. Never had problems with the FI on my bike but that is surely the safest way to go. Safe travels.
