If you got around to replacing them, did that fix it?

Nope, I'm not sure where it's leaking if at all. There is no noticeable drop in fluid levels.

If you're saying it's leaking fluid...yeah, that's not good. Make sure all your connecting banjos are tight.
Did you tie the lever back overnight?
Yeah I checked the connections they're not leaking.

Spilled a bit of fluid filling it up a while back but I cleaned it up.

ninjafaces So picked up a bleeder from autozone, bled the brakes, solid fluid no bubbles. Issue still persists and it appears like a bit of fluid is pooling at the bottom of the brake lever. I'm thinking bad master.

I'll pickup some tubing tonight, thanks for the recommendation.
