I just did this and the instructions are great. I skipped the step about undoing the 10 mm bolt for the bracket for the lines since the lines don't need to be pulled back to drain the fluid from the rack. You do have to watch for the aluminum crush rings on the rack side of the banjo bolts (one on the bolt side and one on the rack side for each of the two banjo bolts).

I had no trouble with the fluid bottle gulping. I poured slowly. After the initial fill, I started the engine and the reservoir drained into the rack and I refilled it. It will be foamy for a little while, but no big deal.

My original fluid came out tan colored. The fluid that went in was green.
