Bleeder Nipple

I took a quick look at my brakes for my 919 and I noticed that the nipple appeared to be on top of the caliper. It left me wondering why they put it on top? Wouldn't that make the fluid get all over my nice gold calliper?

My last bike had it on the bottom. So any guesses why they would put it on top?

Ahh, I get it, so now that I'm stuck with an inverted nipple how would I bleed it without making a big mess? Just a rag around the nipple? Maybe a little hose connected to it?

I'm sure I could get the job done, but I'm curious how you guys do it.

Ding-ding-ding... Good thinking lad! A length if clear hose attached to the bleeder nipple!

Buy a mighty vac and you won't have to worry about fluid at all and it makes bleeding way easier.

I can't believe the Bleeder Nipple thread hasn't been derailed yet.

I went with Galfer lines up front a few weeks ago. I wish I had a mighty vac, but I don't. Just get a couple feet of the small clear hose, one for each fitting. Tie a small weight on each end and put on an old coffee can. No mess.

It took about 20 minutes to get all the air out of the new lines. Much better feel at the lever.

If you remove the nipple completly and grease the threads and reinstall it will cut down on the micro bubbles returning to the caliper. Takes less time as well.

Also, unless she is slapping you with her mind, I believe the word you are looking for is actually telepathy. Telekinesis would be the ability to move objects with the mind.

Soooo you're saying she is using her telecephalon to enhance her telepathywhich in turn would enhance her telesthesia, therefore giving her the ability to slap him with your hand using telekinesis.

I was going to say Clairboyant but I couldn't remember that word either (and I am sure I am also misspelling that one as well )

Just use Firefox, there's a built in spellchecker on all text forms.

Hold on now, maybe she can sit in the living room and slap him with a steak or something.
