 Side note: If you get any bubbles in the hose while your getting it onto the bleeder screw, just turn the bottle upside down above the caliper and flick the hose until the bubble floats up through it and into the bottle. Side note: If you get any bubbles in the hose while your getting it onto the bleeder screw, just turn the bottle upside down above the caliper and flick the hose until the bubble floats up through it and into the bottle.

 +Another side note: I spent a couple years in an auto shop and the system we had there was a big container of brake fluid that we hooked up to an air compressor. It had a hose that lead to an adapter that you'd screw onto the reservoir. With pressure in the container pushing fluid into the reservoir/​brake system, all you had to do was attach a hose/bottle to the bleeder screw and when you opened the screw the fluid would come shooting out. You just shut it off once all the air bubble came out.
 +I was trying to think of a similar setup for bikes, where you modify the reservoir cover, attaching a hose and then suspend a big jug of fluid over the bike, high enough that gravity would push the fluid through.
