I'd bleed all 4 corners again to be sure. I've had this happen before thinking I was just doing a quick bleed and didn't want to put fluid in the Motive tank. It's easy to run the MC reservoir dry if you aren't constantly watching it.

Motive shmotive. I have one and don't use it anymore. I've used the motive, mighty vac, speed bleeders, etc. Ended up going to the old tried and true method of using a bleed bottle and pumping the pedal. Just watch the reservoir. Fill it after each corner. It only takes about 4-5 pumps to get the fluid through any one of the lines. If you use the bottle right, you will never get bubbles in the system. BTW, a motive will not work with speed bleeders.

I have had people tell me to get the left rear corner as high in the air as possible. Because of the bends in the line that goes to it air likes to get trapped there. Any one else subscribe to that belief?

Measure the actual length of the rear brake lines and let me know what you find. With the junction block next to the right rear wheel it stands to reason there is more distance to the left rear than the front.
