Default Polaris Sportsman brake master cylinder replacement

Does anyone know how difficult it'll be to change out the brake master cylinder (the one on the left handle bar) on a 2001 Polaris Sportsman 500?
My buddy unfortunately broke the mount on his and had to buy a new one.
Is it any different than bleeding the brakes on a car?
Maybe gravity bleed them one at a time first, then pump them up and bleed them individually, starting with the furthest away from the master?
Does that sound like it might work?
Thanks,
Alan

just pump them up, and bleed it at the line. you shouldn't need to bleed it anywhere else. you can do it!
