The nipple near the front brake reservoir I assume is used to purge air from system once system is flushed
No problem!

The front master cylinder on the ABS bikes has the bleed screw.
For non-ABS it's not there ...
I've had issues getting the air out of the front system a few times...
I need to read the manual again, I think it basically says bleed the caliper, bleed the master, repeat...
Some folks have had good luck tying back the front brake lever overnight which seems to help bleed the system...
