Looking at his last post, it doesn't look like he's bled from the rear master cylinder to the front caliper yet. I think he's trying to bleed all the way through at once.
Yeah, that link is pretty good and some of the diagrams are right out of the manual. I may use it after I put braided lines on mine!

Basically I opened the rear master cylinder, and there was fluid in the top of the gasket, which was bowl shaped. So I didn't remove the gasket thinking i was looking at the open cylinder. the system was sealed and that's why nothing was flowing. I took the gasket out and everything was fine :(

Finally I said well , maybe there is gunk in there clogging the line in the master cylinder, so I sucked the fluid out....."hey wait, there's no hole in the bottom of this container WTF......Oh it's the gasket"

I still think my rear pedal is a little mushy so I'm going to be working through bleeding whatever air is left in there, but for the most part I got it under control. First time bleeding brakes, learned a lot today.

I'm pretty sure you meant the rear brake fluid reservoir. There was that much fluid on top of the reservoir diaphragm? Sounds like somebody opened it up, saw it was dry and filled it with brake fluid. Otherwise, there shouldn't be any fluid there, other than than some condensation maybe.

Well the front brake is perfect....the rear....holy I cannot get it un mushy.

I have tried to get my wife to help, but that's pretty much no help. This seems to be impossible to do alone. I think I'll be riding this weekend with a mushy rear brake until I can figure this out. This linked brake is for the birds.

Youre in katy, not far from me. You can swing by my house to grab my bleeder valve if you want. that way you can get all the air out for sure and see if air got in or not for sure. im by barker cypress road. let me know.

I appreciate it, I'm near barker cypress and w. little york. I've got a might vac, but I must not be doing something right because the rear pedal is still mushy.

The front was really easy, but on the vfr you have to bleed to this little master cylinder on the front caliper, then some how push it through to another bleeder beisde the tank, then back to two more bleeders on the rear caliper! its a !

Yeah, that's what I meant. I think someone topped it up with without pulling the gasket out before me.
