I cannot bleed my brembo master!!!

I've bled brakes before and this is the first time I'm running into trouble getting it done. I've read that I should be 'priming' the master first, using the nipple at the top. After getting all the air out of there I can go to the calipers and bleed those.

The problem I'm having is that I cannot get any fluid to come out the top nipple. None! I've sat here for a half hour but the lever remains squishy.

Tips, anyone? Could I have a leak somewhere? Maybe the banjo bolt connecting the SS lines? I used the same crush washers, since I'm not changing the lines and only the master. I actually had to add a washer in the middle of the two brake line connectors because the banjo bolt wasn't long enough.

By the way, I don't have a bleeding pump and I'd rather not go get one if I don't have to.

Thanks...I'm going to go walk off my frustration. haha.

i just bled both of my brakes today during and after my new front brake pads.
All i did is go to Autozone and get a brake bleed kit (7.99)

it cam with a bottle, hose, and the tips.

dont know if this is the right way but this is what i did lol

- started with the front right caliper, bled it dry
- did same for front left
- opened up oil on handlebars and verified all old oil was gone.
- poured on my new Castrol Brake Fluid
- opened main bleeder (on handlebars) and made sure no air bubbles
- did same for front left and right till oil was flowing steady

( i did the same for the back brake... just one bleeder, bled till dry, re-filled...then bled till steady flow)

hope this helps.

i had no issues

Try to squeeze the hose between the reservoir and the master. Fast on and off, to see if you can get any airboubbles out of the master. make sure the reservoir is placed higher than the master.
If that does not work try to strip-up the master to full brake, and leave it over night...
