Both my brakes are not particularly sharp. I wonder whether they could do with bleeding as I don't know how long the fluid has been in there. They are linked brakes so is there a knack for doing it?

On linked line do front first then the rear. Other front is simple. I try to flush my fluid every couple of years. Brake fluid is relatively cheap and bleeding isn't difficult.

Replacing the original lines with braided stainless lines will make the brakes unbelievably sharp and powerful - by far the best thing I did to my 1100 (and 1500).
