Also mine is only like 4 or 5 inches long...

Make your own funnel with a piece of paper or thin plastic.

Or - connect the stock reservoir to the end of the hose. Fill the hose. Disconnect. Cap it.

or...what i did when i did mine was only puncture a small hole in the brake fluid bottle seal. it came out slowly, but went right in the tube no issues or mess. but i suggest the reservoir trick.

Took time to install mine today. Took me a little extra time cause I didn't know air could get trapped in the banjo bolts. But installed it and looks great, very happy with the overall look too. Good quality, easy installation, 5 stars in my book!
