As the loop is higher than both ends of the hose, and the bleed nipple, air can't get back in because air is less dense than the fluid and get's trapped in the loop. Crack the bleed valve and open the master cylinder. Pump the lever and KEEP THE MASTER CYLINDER FULL of fluid as the level will go down as you pump. Watch the hose and the air bubbles coming out. When you don't see anymore bubbles tighten the bleed valve, remove the hose and button up your master cylinder.

Wrong bike, but same principle, see page 9 here;
Already done that tube etc but the brake fluids not movin stayin full even though im pumpin away.

Its given me the sh#$%$% and every time i spill abit got to wash it off or loose the pretty paint.
we are already here!
