    General bleeding ?n

    Do I have to completely fill the reservoir on my lever? Is that ok to have some air between the oil level and the cover? Say if the reservoir is 3/4 full and there's no air in the lines.

    Thanks!

    Fluid is drawn from the reservoir into the system as the pads wear, if the reservoir is not full you run the risk of drawing air into the system as the pads wear. Also if the lever is actuated while the bike is upside down you will suck air into the system.
