    If nothing else helps, detach the brake caliper from the swingarm, and hang it somewhere so that the bleeding "nipple" is the highest point in the system.

    #1 Fill the master cylinder.

    #2 Attach a piece of (clear) fuel line to the brake bleeder.

    #3 Suck the brake fluid through with a cheap syringe, or carefully do it by mouth without sucking up brake fluid.

    #4 Once the fluid shows up in the fuel line, you can probably prime the system by pumping the brake with the bleeder closed and then quickly cracking the bleeder to let the air bubbles escape.

    Cheers!

    sucking on any part of a brake system is a very bad idea
    brake fluid is not oil its a freaking nasty chemical and it will make strange things grow in your throat.
    use a syringe, any friendly junkie can show you how to keep the air out of it

    You say fluid is comeing out! If its comeing out of your rear mastercylinder (near your brake pedal) then a seal has gone in cylinder.
    If not reverse bleeding with oral type syringe is best & move caliper high or brake cylinder at angle to make air come to top.
