HD Fat Apes, Clutch Bleed difficulty

Ok, Because of the bend in these bars, the clutch reservoir sits at such an angle I am having a hard time bleeding the clutch cable and adding enough fluid to the reservoir.

If you look at a picture of these bars, you can see the clutch housing sits at a weird angle no matter the direction you place the bars. I am STRUGGLING with this.

Iíd do the fill and bleed on a level surface. Torque cover and install on bars once itís all air bubble free.

had to get my son to give me a hand. It wasn't too bad, got it worked out. LOTS of bubbles this second time. Works great now. Even went and re-did the brakes, no more ABS light either....piece of cake.
