Default Opening Brake Lines with ABS?

I am knee deep in swapping out my triple trees and I need to remove my brake line. I have heard that there are some issues with bleeding the brakes when you have ABS, so what's up?

Can I remove the banjo bolt and simply reinstall it?

Thanks. Wasn't there some weirdness with bleeding abs bikes?

Do you know the sizes I would need for a '14 ? I read that there is an oddball size with one of the fronts.

Yes, the left front bleeder is longer and the people at Speedbleeder are aware of this, or should be. Order from them by phone and you should get the correct ones.
