Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

Brake bleed nipple M8 or M10

Post by muttley1 on Mon 09 Jan 2017, 7:06 pm

Hi,
I'm doing a brake overhaul and thought I'd change the bleed nipple whilst I'm at it. There are plenty on fleabay for a couple of quid. The caliper is Brembo so does anyone know if I'd need an M8 or M10 fitting?

cheers

As far as I remember, you need an 11mm spanner on mine. I only remembered that because it's the only time I have ever used an 11mm spanner. I think the nipple is original

I can't remember! When I get a moment I will measure the bit that is sticking out of the caliper.... if I had to guess I'd say the smaller one.

Additional: could it be M6:

That isn't making this any better..... sorry!
