I had to rebuild my rear brake MC and now it's time to bleed the system. I am not having any luck at all - even attached a small hose to the bleeder on the caliper and sucked on it trying to draw fluid from the MC but am having no luck. Is there a proper procedure specific to this system to bleed it? The MC is rebuilt and I'm pretty sure it's back together correctly. It sucked a little from the reservoir but now it doesn't got down any. Thanks for any help on this.
This is a 99 WR400F.

Get a syringe from tractor supply and force fluid from the caliber bleeder, you should see it fill up the MC.

Get a mityvac and you'll be done in 5 minutes.
