brake bleeding
on: November 26, 2020, 12:17:11 PM
Does anyone know what size tube/pipe fits snuggly onto the Brake bleed nipple (don't think it matters but it's 2018) the inner diameter, looking at bleeding my brakes and need a pipe.

Cheers

I use a bleed bag that has a 6mm ID silicon tube, I think the nipple has a max 7mm diameter.

not sure on the size but I've been using these for years on bikes and cars, did the back brake on the S1KR recently, cost 6.  I assume its just a one way valve and a bottle, not perfect but certainly makes it much easier - https://www.halfords.com/tools/hand-tools/automotive-tools/europat-vizibleed-brake-and-clutch-bleeding-kit-321141.html
