Answer is "Yes" & "No". Because of the ABS hard plumbing the new stainless steel line comes off of the handlebar down to a metal block connecting it to the ABS system, and that is above the radiator (should loosen the block to get room to properly wrench). Then the other stainless steel line comes off that same metal block down to the caliper, you need a ss cross-over line to the other caliper.
I didn't have any problems bleeding the fronts. I didn't do the back yet but I assume it will be easier. I recently bought speed bleeders to make the process easier since changing brake fluid is part of routine maintenance.
I have a KLR and an old R100 BMW and those lines run directly from point "A" to "B". Nothing could be simpler.
Before buying, take into account if you want to raise the handlebars or the front fender as some / many have done especially us off-road types, and add 1"-2" where needed.
