2015 Odes Dominator 4DR

I have no brakes and bleeding with a Bike Master vacuum bleeder barely pulls any fluid from the cylinder. I connected the vacuum to both front and rear - the rear seems to pull more fluid from the master cylinder but still doesn't get close to a full stream through the vacuum lines. The front brakes just spit fluid through the vacuum lines.

I tried to give it more time on each side but it doesn't seem to improve after 30-45 minutes of suction. I've had to fill the cylinder several times but the vacuum lines never run full.

I've checked all lines and connections and don't see any leaks. What could be the cause? It's it time to consider the master cylinder as the issue?

Is there a rear master cylinder? Where is it located?

Thanks.
Kristi

Went at it again today. Decided to clean and check all calipers to make sure parts were good. Started with rear passenger bleed - good, then driver passenger bleed - good. Cleaned bleeder valve and started front passenger - no fluid. Cleaned bleeder valve and started front driver - no fluid. Cleaned master cylinder "ports"; connected vacuum directly to front master cylinder line - got fluid. Reconnected the front line, started with passenger and still no fluid; same on drivers side.
