K1200RS I-ABS bleed after installing used ABS

First post.
I have 2 2002 K1200RS.One in MI which I have ridden for 7 years. Have done full service bleeding several times. One in FL which I bought 3 years ago. The one in FL Had had an ABSectomy undisclosed by the seller. I spend a week in FL each year and work on this. Last year I installed a good used ABS unit and was unable to complete it because the hard brake line fittings weren't all there. This year with those installed I got ABS failure lights. Turned out to be a pin in the connector not broken but pushed back I straightened it out and cleared the lights. The GS- 911 says there are no faults. The last two days I have been trying to get fluid in the rear brake. Unable to bleed with servo running pushing the rear brake lever. I have read every forum that pertains to this subject over the last 2 years. Some say dealer has to do it. I don't think that is necessary. Any ideas on to proceed? I can bleed some oil no air from metering and integral circuit, none from control circuit. I am currently trying to syringe fluid into control circuit bleeder. Some later model has what looks like the same unit lying horizontally and that is where they fill it after replacement. Any help would be appreciated.
