loosen the union at the master cylinder and make you get all the air out up there first.

Hopefully its not but sometimes it can be the master cylinder seal leaking internally.
It doesnt show up until you try and bleed the brakes (was working fine before) then you spend hours and get nowhere,ive had it a few times with various bikes and its always been that,it shouldnt be too hard even with an empty system to get lever pressure even using the old "tube in a jar" method.
