2006 ZX10r Front Brakes Issue

So, I installed a zx14r Brake Calipers on my ZX10r. After installation, I pump the brake lever and there is no pressure. I kept pumping and try to bleed it nothing. Where to go from here? Any suggestions.

What are you using to bleed the brakes?

EDIT: At a minimum, go pick one of these up if you don't have one.

Tell us how you're bleeding the brakes so we know you're doing it correctly. You might need to go pick up a large syringe or a mitytvac and some tubing and suck fluid manually to pull it through the system.

You can pick up those mighty vac hand pumps at Sears for $30. I wasn't really a believer until I had to bleed a freshly rebuilt caliper. When a caliper is dry, it can be a REAL pia to bleed the first time. It will take you longer to put the tool together than it will to bleed the calipers.

This tool was worth the 39$. It took the air out of the lines and Now I have to get some new brake pads.
