Brake bleed nipple tubing size

Postby Me9141 » Mon Mar 14, 2016 9:40 pm

Hi all,

Looking to change the brake fluid over the weekend. Just wondering does anyone know what tube size fits over the bleed nipple in the 9n.

Thanks in advance.

Thank you.


Going to do a full service tomorrow, anything I should look for beyond the normal.

Just for anyone else trying this, I found 5mm was too small, 6mm was ok.
