Bleedable brake banjo bolts

842 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Avi8or
I have some HEL brake lines that I am waiting to install after fitting some Renthal medium high road bars. The standard lines weren't long enough to fit neatly.
I am waiting for a banjo bolt with a bleed nipple before I fit the lines so I have a bleed point at the master cylinder. I don't want to have to bleed more times than necessary.
I've had this part on order for 3 months and it still hasn't arrived.
Has anyone got a contact for this gear?

I think most places that sell motorcycle brake lines will sell the banjo bolts too. It is pretty common stuff.

If you want to order, then last place I saw these was

Bleedingwise, however, the nipple will not be at a best level possible as it is sitting to the side or downwards from the master cylinder. Ideal place would be the highest point of the master cylinder chamber as this is where an airpocket might form.
You might have to take the lever assembly off and tilt it on its side while bleeding.
