Yeah, not much point bleeding the caliper when you are working with the lever.
I've done the above method countless times with no issues and no bleed. Just
keep the hose pointed up / don't swing it around your head etc….When you screw
the barb in it effectively forces out any remaining air in the end of the
line. If you want to be anal you can remove the pads, squeeze the lever to get
the pistons to protrude a bit, do the cutting etc, join everything up, fully
retract the pistons, thus forcing any air from the connection into the lever
itself, then bleed the lever.
Whatever you do, when finished, always put the bike on it's back wheel with
the leaverz pointing up, and repeatedly squeeze the levers to see if they go
back to the baaaa. This will help to avoid any painful tree / mouth
