'04 Sportsman 700

Hello Polarisriders.com, I'm new to the site. I'm hoping someone can help me with my brake problem on my 2004 Polaris Sportsman 700. My front brakes were working fine (back brake has been out of years) but I needed new pads. After putting on the new pads I bled the brakes but could not get any pressure in the front brake lever or back brake foot pedal. Bought new calipers (2 in front, 1 for rear) and a new back brake master cylinder installed them and bled brakes again, this time I felt a little pressure in the front lever nothing in the back pedal. Then I noticed when I pumped the front lever brake fluid starting coming out of the back brake reservoir (cap was on tight but fluid was still forcing out around the cap). What doesn't make sense to me is how can brake fluid go from the handlebar reservoir through the brake line to the rear caliper, then go through the rear caliper and force it's way back through the rear brake pedal brake line through the rear master cylinder and out the cap of the rear reservoir ? Still no brakes working at all. Im suppose to be leaving tomorrow for two days of riding. I've been messing with this for over a week now. Any help would be very appreciated.
