Question about 1994 Yamaha FZ 750 KT (Europe)
I changed the front break pads on my FZ 750 KT Maxim and decided to also change the break fluid. I drained the line and cleaned the remaining fluid from the reservoir. I added new fluid and tried to bleed it through the break line, but the fluid will not go into the line. The line is not plugged and as far as I could tell nothing got into the hole to plug it. Is there some secret technique to get the break line primed and the breaks working again?
Had the same problem, took the whole assembly off the bike complete. That's both the callipers, all the lines & splitter & the front lever with master cylinder complete.
Put some wooden chocks in-between each set of brake pads just wider than the disc, then with the help of a buddy, hold the callipers above the master cylinder keeping the brake lines as straight as possible. Pump the lever 5-6 times & open bleed nipple, making sure that the lever is pulled in before doing up the nipple.
Repeat as many time as necessary, took me about 8 cycles to get air out.
If you think about it, if you try to bleed on bike, you're pushing the air bubbles down, air will always travel upwards easier than down due to good old gravity!!
hope this helps!

Pump the lever 5 or 6 times w/ bleeder closed while holding lever, open bleeder close bleeder, pump the lever. Repeat as necessary - works best w/ 2 people. If you really want to get the fluid flowing fast, Loosen the banjo bolt instead of the bleeder the first couple of times. Have lotsa rags on hand..
