Brembo Bleed Nipple Thread (MY 2000 R1100S)

Postby jeznewsome » Mon Sep 03, 2012 6:21 pm

During the recent service at RGM Roy was unable to change the brake fluid on the RH caliper as the BMW Filling Valve (in place of a standard bleed nipple) had failed. Unfortunately he didn't have a spare so I figured it'd be a quick job to change.

After a call with Steve at Southport a bleed nipple arrived today but once I started to remove the BMW fill valve it was clear that the Bleed nipple supplied was not the correct thread. I reckon the once supplied was a 7mm thread (a 7mm AF spanner would go over it)?

So what is the thread on the Brembo caliper M8 x 1.25? Anyone know for definite so that I can get one ordered.

Hi, just in case.............
I have a set of Speed bleeders that I got for my R1100S 2003 but never fitted.
I was sent two for the front SB7100S M7 X 1.0 and one for the back SB6100 M6 X 1.0
still unopened that you can have for £10 posted to the uk if they are any good to you.

Defo not that small a thread on the RH Brembo.

I have ordered an M10 nipple as pretty sure that is what it is......
