uggh - I just snapped my rear brake bleed nipple

Recommended Posts

Trying to loosen it. Darn thing is aluminum and soft and I broke it off flush !

Now for the proper application of heat, a drill, may be an ez-out.

Then after I screw that up and break the ez-out it's off to find a machinist, or a new brake caliper.

That is all

PS. Make sure your nipples are lubed.

yeah dont use the easy out, last resort. go get some reverse drill bits, drill it out small the step up in sizes it'll start coming out the thinner it gets.

Got it - I'm going with the reverse drill method. THis is the AJP rear on a 2007 gas gas 250pro

If anybody reads this - Do you now iw any old blled nipple with the same width and threads will work? (I think it's either an M10 or M6 x 1.0)

But more specifically, are the seat bevel and such pretty much universal?

And the answer is - I think so. I grabbed a 6.0 x 1.0 pitch nipple from the bin at the auto parts store and it worked well. A little long, but it worked great.

FYI the reverse method by argclh6670 did the trick !
