I need help installing a new hose and brake; canít get fluid into the system.

New Sram brake and new hose. Rear brake RS G2. Using Sram Pro hydraulic kit.

Seems impossible to push and pull fluid through a long line using these small syringes. Massive air bubbles. Lever locks up and wonít take any more fluid.

It doesnít make sense to me that a little syringe could push fluid through a long brake line.

Is there some way to get fluid into the system without using syringes?

I think if I could just get fluid into the system from lever to caliper I could properly bleed the system using the syringes.

Any suggestions, ideas?

TIA

I always found Sram hydro brakes frustrating to work with. They require patience, lots of it. I'm not really understanding how the trouble is presenting itself to you, are you able to offer a more in-depth explaination?

Not to mention DOT is just an unnecessary hassle.
