I know the procedure and assumed virtually everyone else does, reason for my recommendation. My point was, the larger reservoir after it is emptied of the old brake fluid and refilled with clean fluid will have more clean fluid to flush the system and require less topping off. Sorry I didn't make myself clear in the first post.
