Default Bleeding Brakes

I took apart the front end of my 01 banshee. Everything is back together the right way. I can't get the front brakes to work. i pump them what seems like a 1000 times, hold the lever in, and bleed both sides. i've done this for hours. I've tried opening every fitting on the lines to. Now when i open the bleeders, a steady stream comes out both sides. No Air.
Do i have a bad master front cylinder? They worked fine before i took them apart.

Welcome to BT.

You might have a bad master cylinder. Are you doing one side at a time? Can you see any bubbles coming to the top of the master cylinder when you pump it?

Go to ORiley's and buy a brake bleeder. Best money you'll ever spend. Leaving the bleeders cracked overnight will help gravity bleed also, I've had that work from time to time.

Yeah i'm seeing bubbles in the resevoir when i pump and also when i shake it. I was doing both at the same time for the most part. Pump, and then bleed both. Then when it seemed like one was done, i concentrated on the other only.
I thought about getting a bleeder. How much are they? And is it worth it?

They work good, and are about $30-$40. Here's one on eBay:
