Bleeding the brakes

Hey everyone! I'm going to bleed/flush the brakes on the 919 today. The rear ones are fairly easy to do, but my questions come from the front one (since there are two calipers).

Do I need to do the right or left caliper first?
Does the old and new fluid mix while I'm bleeding the one caliper?


Thanks,
Cris P.

Chris, The new fluid should push the old out. Which side of the front you start on should not matter. Just be sure to bleed until the fresh, clean, new fluid has pushed out the greebish brown old stuff.
