Little Nipple for Flushing 2011 GSA?

I've flushed my old servo GSes many times so I'm almost looking forward to flushing my non-servo model. Everything looks straight forward.

However, I'm a bit confused by the little nipple up by the front reservoir. Am I supposed to bleed that? Before of after the front calipers?

Thx for the help.

You should first bleed from that little nipple then normally the front calipers.

The REPROM says to bleed that nipple prior to bleeding EACH caliper, so you need to do it twice. Not sure why, but it appears to be the highest point in the system so I guess a bubble could be living there and you want to flush it out before bleeding. Makes more sense to me to bleed it AFTER bleeding the calipers, and I suppose you could do that also.
