    Bleed nipple sizes on Gen 1

    Hi All

    Does anyone know the size and thread of the bleed nipples on the black Brembos on a gen 1?

    Also if anyone knows the rear too that would be nice. I know I could measure them but that would obviously involve taking them out, which id rather not do if I can help it :-)

    Cheers

    I don't know but I'm also interested in the answer...and haven't looked around for what they are yet. Have you done the searching and still can't find it?

    I believe the fronts are 8x1.25mm and rear is 6x1.0mm. Although I stand corrected.

    Yeah I think Smithy has it M8 by 1.25

    Though I have a change of plan now, I am going to fit M50s and a Brembo MCS 17 Master Cylinder.

    Do M50s bolt straight up?

    Yeah they bolt on but I have ordered new brake lines.

    The stock lines would be ok if the fittings swivelled, but they don't :-(

    I ordered the lines from Hel in the UK, I also ordered on of their adaptors to change the angle on the master cylinder banjo, to make moving to a radial master cylinder eaiser.
