I am about to replace my rear brake reservior. Are there any tricks or special tools required when bleeding the brake?

Thanks!

Use new brake fluid and completely flush out the old stuff. You may want to flush out the front brake as well. Brake fluid doesn't last real well once the can has been opened. Keep your reservoir topped off while bleeding/flushing.
