Yamaha recommends every two years, but given the past ABS issues and that the clutch system be optimal, it would be better to bleed once a year. When you do the brakes activate the ABS system to ensure the pump circuit is purged.
As for Speed Bleeders not working when you open the hydraulic system, that would be an issue with non speed bleeders too if the master cylinder was not bled first. Air anywhere else should purge as you pump as long as the master is pumping.
