And itís fine that you are.... however Iíd rather be safe in the knowledge Iíve fully evacuated all air from my braking system. If further down the line it creates an issue which requires repair, then itíll get repaired rather than masked over.
In all my years Iíve never had an issue doing it how I do and my brakes have always had a great pedal...
