Maybe I'm not reading your post right, but you used a bolt in place of the nippled fitting?
I suggester that a bolt could
be used- in my case, the M/C was supplied w/threaded plastic plugs to block the ports off with.
With the ports blocked, when the piston is depressed air bubbles out of the orifices in the bottom of the reservoir- first the front and w/a bit more travel, the rear.
