great tip for all.

i've heard that one before and used it on my DR.
i did the normal bleed method till things seem good then,
zip tied the lever against the bar overnight. it opens the system so all the left over bubbles rise to top and escape out. i just left the top cap off and put a towel over top so nothing could fall in. the next morning the cap goes back on and the system is rock solid.
