No idea but each seperately sounds right.

I reckon that way one would be untouched while bleeding the other (as if it was like a single caliper).

Big eck will know for sure though.

I think the real fancy way would be to pressure bleed them and open both nipples at the same time.

The old school way would be manual and individually. That always works on cars...(Sometimes work 1 - 2 - 1)

I always bleed Motorcycle brakes 1 at a time.. Till they run clear in each and then to build up pressure.
