I'm afraid you will need to re-bleed the system. Check for any leaks before you start.

MANUAL BLEEDING
NOTE:Check fluid level in master cylinder frequently during brake bleeding sequence.

Non-ABS
Clean dirt from master cylinder fluid reservoir filler cap area. Fill reservoir with brake fluid. If master cylinder is known or suspected to have air in bore, bleed master cylinder first. To bleed brake system, release vacuum from power unit by depressing brake pedal several times.
Install clear vinyl bleed hose onto first bleed valve to be serviced. See the BRAKELINE BLEEDING SEQUENCE table. Place other end of hose in clean transparent container.
Partially fill container with clean brake fluid so end of hose is submerged in fluid. Open bleed valve 1-2 turns. Have an assistant slowly depress brake pedal through its full travel.
Close bleed valve and release pedal. Pump pedal several times to push air toward wheel cylinders. Repeat procedure until flow of brake fluid is clear and shows no sign of air bubbles. Proceed to next bleed valve.
Check brake pedal for firmness. If brake pedal feels "spongy", repeat bleeding procedure. Top off brake fluid reservoir.
