take the reserver cap off on the bars fill with brake fluid, crack the bleeder screws open and let them drip till it's flowing steady, just dont let the reserve go empty,

Before you crack the bleeder screws you need to pump up the pressure in the system and hold the pressure throughout the dripping process. Then make sure that you have tightened the bleeder before releasing the brake pedal/handle, this keeps the system from sucking air back in when the brake pedal/handle is released.

so I'm purchasing a 01 scrambler that needs some work. I notice the front brake resovoir has no fluid in it and the brake lever has been depressed. What do I need to do to get fluid back in here and fix this?

THanks
