This time I did not do like that. But next - I will try 100%

Thank you.

Just did this tonight... I managed to get air in the system by running the reservoir dry.

If this happens to you, I am certain that you'll have to remove the rear caliper and rotate it so the bleed screw is closer to the sky/ceiling than the rest of the caliper.

Although my dog did enjoy my excessive "WHAT THE FUCK!?" chanting and I liked ensuring that the system is clean (only ran about 15 reservoirs full of fluid through), save yourself the hassle and get the 6mm Alan key out, if you've sucked air into the system...

Get some speed bleeders and a speed bleeder bag. Love em! Actually a lot simpler than using a vacuum pump.

Speedbleeders or not, you still have to rotate the caliper so the nips are pointing up.

11mm wrench and tissue to catch fluid will do the trick.
Open the bleeder valve while someone is depressing and holding the brake pedal.
Close the valve and then check the pedal pressure. Repeat this process until you get the desired result.

I'm about to do this since I need to install a rear brake light switch to replace the banjo bolt but I'm assuming I'll need to drain all the rear brake line fluid to get the banjo bolt out without fluid leaking everywhere?

Also does the ABS system need to be bled since air will most likely be introduced in the process of draining the line out?

I've tried bleeding the rear without removing the rear caliper and wasted a lot of fluid with no better result! Wasn't even thinking about it being lower than the rest of the system. Been riding without the rear brake for a few days now since it's kinda cold. I'll get it bleed out this weekend. You're my hero thx all.
