2000 K1200LT. Removed rear caliper assembly and had to drain to un-stick one piston. Now no pressure in rear brakes. I know how to bleed normally. How do I do it "from scratch" with no pressure to begin with. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

You can always push fluid from the caliper up to the reservoir with a syringe.

John,
Thank you so much for the syringe suggestion. After searching 3 grocery stores and 3 auto parts stores last night for syringe, I gave up, exasperated.

LIght bulb went on today. Went to a farm & ranch supply store. They all dozens, all sizes.

$3.56 later I'm in the garage fabricating a hose and fitting and 20 min later I was done.

Again, thanks. You had the "just right" idea for me.
