Depending upon the bike. There's a tiny hole under the reservoir that gets plugged up. Clean it out and he should be able to bleed the brakes.
83 CB650SC, I rebuilt the master, resovoir hole isnt clogged, starting to wonder if I did something wrong with the masters.

There's a little pinhole underneath the reservoir, you have to take the reservoir off to get to it and run a wire through it to make sure it's not plugged. A paper clip might be too big. It's the fluid return hole.

If it's plugged you can try to bleed them f'ers all day long and it won't happen.

There are 2 holes. The pinhole is to the right of the larger one. I ran a 2/32nds drill bit though mine (82 cb650sc) this fixed the problem after I rebuilt and honed my master cylinder but couldn't bleed.

Here's where I'm at on the bar bike, Project: Viragoster aka "Stale gas"



I "flushed" the tanks with kerosene, cleaned the petcock out, still need to pull the fuel pump and soak it. The carbs are out and being professionally cleaned/rebuilt as we speak. (The butterflies wouldn't move due to old gas gummage).

The rest of the bike is in pretty good shape, just needed a dusting. The wheels cleaned up very nice except for a couple corroded spots on the rear, they just need a little more attention.

I still need to check/adjust the valves, reinstall the carbs and exhaust and she should be ready to run. Oh , and get a battery.

I have a set of z-bars coming along with some bar end mirrors and new grips. Once she's running, then the plan is to get a set of white walls.

If i'm lucky I can have it ready to roll for a little over 1k$ total. A little more if I choose to fix the big dent in the tank. :)

Hole was clear, measured my old master cylinder parts and they were .050" bigger than the one in the rebuild kit for it, put the old stuff back on and bled in like 5 minutes. That's what I get for not just taking it apart and cleaning out the how like 99% of people with old Hondas told me.

Leave the dent. Adds street cred.
