A "hint" that may help to lessen the need for bleeding, which you
will likely have to do when you change the switch, which you'll likely have
to do, is to put a plastic bag or some-such under the master cylinder cap.
I generally remove the cap, fill the master to the top, put a bag over it
and re-cap thus lessening the likelihood of fluid escaping.
