Just cleaning up the calipers and changing my pads and noticed the center piston on left caliper dosent move and is not seized,

Is this due to the abs and If so how dose it work?

all three pistons should move

the abs system regulates the amount of pressure in the hydraulic line that feeds the caliper

Does it have combined brakes (CBS)?
The rear brake operates the centre piston on one of the front calipers, I'm not sure if abs bikes have this still.

I noticed that earlier 700 Transalp had two-pot front calipers, and later ones had three-pot front calipers.

Yeah it's fitted with C - ABS so I assume that the center piston is controlled via the back pedal
