pull the lever back to the bar until it feels like you are giving it a good squeeze then put a cable tie etc around the lever and handle bar grip to hold the pressure on the lever and leave it like this over night, then cut the cable tie off and try the lever.
this sometimes forces the last bit of air out of the system.
