I don't know the Hispec calipers, but in general principle you start with the caliper futhest away, ie diaganaly oposite rear, next rear, oposite side front and finally mastercylinder side front. Just a thought, the calipers you have fitted the bleed niples need to be at the top of the caliper, if they are at the bottom you have the calipers on the wrong side.

Non ABS, you should be OK with standard bleed practice.

Furthest from master first then moving to shorter each time. If you're happy to push a fir bit of fluid through (you have enough etc) then go for circa 1/4 l for the rear left, then you'll not need much for the others (100ml each) but will have renewed your fluid at the same time.

Thanks for the advice. I'll do it tomorrow fed up with bending up and down for today.

I think there soft as I have only bleed the fronts.

The thing is, if you didn't secure the pipes off well air will have crept up the system, even though you may well be getting fluid though. You may find they improve overnight as some air may move up through the pipes.
