What bleed nipples for standard calipers


Recommended Posts

If I want to get new bleed nipples for my standard front calipers (triumph spitfire type) what should I ask for in my local halfords? Metric/imperial? Coarse/fine thread? Long or short? Spigot-flanged / non-spigot-flanged ? You get the idea.

I could just ask for nipples to suit a triumph spitfire but they might not know and I'd like to sound like I know what I'm talking about!

Or maybe all bleed nipples are the same?

I arrived here by mistake after typing in "Nipples+flange" into a search engine smile.gif


But seriously, Rimmers are good for the Triumph bits. I got angled nipples from them to make greasing simpler.
