Back Brake bleed?

Is there a procedure to bleeding back brake?

I press back lever down release nipple on caliper let air out tighten then repeat . I can't get by brake to firm up still feels like I have air.

after I release my rear brake lever I can see my fluid in my rear reservoir rise , I know something is wrong I can't figure it out what?

you have to take the caliper off its upside down if you dont do this you will always have an air bubble. if you notice the 1199 1299 etc the rear caliper is at the bottom of the rotar. hold it as if the break was on at the top of the rotar. this way no air bubbles form.
Thanks from youngR
