It depends, if you cannot get it to pump then it needs to be., but not as a general rule.

If you pumped the brakes with a line open or a bleeder cracked, or you think up got air in there than go ahead,

i know bleeding them sucks

I don't know about NEW stuff W/ ABS & stuff but older systems will gravity bleed..Most of the time

With the cap off crack open a bleeder{the furthest from the master} and it should just run right out.

Hydraulic oil DOES NOT compress.

Air does.

So that is why you must evacuate all the air from the system
