    Shimano XTR M-975 dual control levers.

    Hey ya'll. My name is Matt, I'm new to the forums and was wondering if anyone has the XTR M-975 hydraulic dual control levers?
    Picked up a pair on the cheap a few months ago. I really like the levers and have gotten used to a new shifting method. Despite numerous bleed attempts and lots of head scratching I cannot seem to get any pressure in the rear brake. I have switched out the hoses and figure that was the biggest problem causing them to foul up. But nothing seems to work.
    After talking to the wizards at Shimano I decided to just send them in and have their warranty guys have at it. I am sure the problem will be resolved this time around, but I know I will need to bleed them again down the road and would like to avoid the same issues. So if you guys have any input (both neg and pos) please let me know.

    Sorry for the ramble, But I was too busy reading bike magazines during english class in high school.

    How were you bleeding the brakes? Can you describe your method?
