Forgive a stupid question but... I just replaced brake fluid, bled lines, etc and I'm wondering this: when all is said and done, how much brake fluid should be left in brake fluid reservoir? I don't see any line marked MIN or MAX so... Halfway? ALL the way? Thanks.

The reservoir has a seam at the top, that is what I used for a fill line. It allows about 1/4" of expansion room and is a good point of reference to see if you are low on fluid.
