I'm having a hell of a job with mine have tried all methods and it's still resisting. So far the only positive thing is pumping fluid in via the bleed nipple using a syringe and seeing bubbles come out of that very small hole in the master cylinder. I assume that the hole being so small causes a lot of pressure at the syringe end and therefore it's a very slow job? I then tried bleeding the traditional way but no luck so I assume keep on at the nipple end until the master cylinder starts to fill up?

A couple of questions though:-

1. If you try the sucking method what position is the brake lever? - either way a slow job as the master cylinder holes are so small.
2. Does having the master cylinder cap off make any difference?

Thanks

Lever out (brake off) or you'll block the passage with the piston and nothing will come down.

Won't make any difference with the cap on or off but you want it off to keep an eye on the level

Cheers, think I will keep going, I think my Calpol syringe maybe a little small for the job.
