You want some full synthetic brake fluid... that exceeds DOT 3 & 4 specs... I used Valvoline Synpower in my bike when I did my brake lines!

whatever you use, be careful where it lands, it has a habit of jumping out of the reservoir and that stuff will eat paint...

Yea what he said! Gravity bleed to empty the system if you have the time.
Then be real careful about squirting it on the bike and mostly wheels.
