Front brake - trapped air

Loosen the hose fitting up at the reservoir. Tie the brake lever in the 
closed (Braking) position with a zip tie. Leave the bike on the center stand 
and leave it like this over night. It should clear all the air out by the 
morning. Just to double check, with the fitting loose, pump it once or twice 
to clear out any air bubbles at the reservoir. If you drain the reservoir 
you're going to fill the system with air, so only one or two pumps. You 
should sees bubble coming out by the fitting if there is air in there yet. 
Once the bubbles stop, re-tighten and re-fill.
