brake bleed nipple thread size?

Recommended Posts

can anyone help with the thread size & pitch for replacement brake nipples? Pro bolt supply stainless nipples in M7 x 1.00, M8 x 1.25 or M10, not sure which size will fit.

This is for a 06 SM, by the way

They are M8. I Did not remove the bleed screw to verify pitch. Looks like 1.25.

Most M8 bolts are 1.25 thread pitch so to verify the bleed screw, remove the bleed screw and match it up to a standard M8 bolt to verify thread pitch. You will loose very little fluid in the process as long as you do not touch the brake lever.

don't say nipple, nipple is a dirty word. the correct name for that part is, the thing that baby brakes would suckle on if brake calipers had children.

yes, i am that bored
