the high point of the system is, the ABS itself and does trap air.
A fix I remember from years ago was to install banjo bleeders to top of ABS unit.
I think this was mentioned in a link here.

I struggle to think why have anti lock system on a brake which is, well, (censored). hardly works in the first place.
you would have to drop a small house on the lever to lock the back wheel.
this was from 1100 evo. not sure if it still applies.
good luck

Really? You guys think tape is going to get into the system?

Use a narrow strip, make sure to not get it down onto the tapered part of the bleed screw. Once the bleeder is tightened down, the tapered part seats against the caliper and seals. No way anything's getting past it.

Even mityvac actually recommends using Teflon tape in one of their FAQ's.

2nd one down in link:

I think all suggestions that work is good. After all, there's no harm in trying.
I'll give it a boo if it acts up again. Right now, pumping the bejesus out of the ABS did the trick for me.
