no to be fair, nothing and you would notice where it is kept..... the rod pushes straight in to the stop with no resistance, so no fluid at all.... have had first service as well to be fair and nothing was picked up then....

Try pumping on it for a while to prime it. I think if you never use it then the vibration over time will allow air in it. if not perhaps a total bleed is necessary.

B750 and B1078 RR both gone now.

Don't be perplexed once you get the rear brakes working that they still don't do much.
