Why do you need to bleed the brakes? I'm concerned about you bleeding brakes (a safety item) if you haven't done it before. It's the same as any car - top-off the brake fluid. Have someone pump the brake pedal several time and hold pressure on the pedal while you crack the bleeder screw at each wheel. Close the bleeder when the brake pedal goes down. Repeat until the air is gone. Right Rear, Left rear, Right Front Left Front.
