Installed the lines, cleared system.... the guy at the honda shop gave me DOT 5 brake fluid... put it in and tried to pump it through... but its not going, I can hear air coming out of the hols at the other end but no brake fluid.... after reading more about the fluids im going to def change to DOT 4 or Motul 5.1, but could it be something other than the DOT 5 fluid? it doesnt seem like it would be too thick to even pump through a little bit..

DOT 5 really isn't high-performance.. It's silicone based, and was created more to last a long time. I think the boiling point on it is actually lower than DOT4
