SpeedBleeder sizes?
 
Okay a search was unsuccessful, here, online, and on the SB website, but surely somebody has installed SpeedBleeders on their F800s. I'm looking for them for an F800R, so I'll need to poll the group wisdom to be sure that the F&R calipers are the same. The bike will need four, two front, one rear, and one for the front master cylinder. I'm going to keep searching, but if someone has done the legwork, I'd appreciate the info.

The ones for the calipers are 10mm by 1.0 (SB1010S).

dmac57 11-02-2012 09:20 PM

That's the size I gather for the rear; the fronts (at least on the F800R) come up as SB8125L. The front master cylinder bleed fitting appears to be M5X1, but I don't find that anywhere online.

A while back I contacted SpeedBleeder and, at least at that time,
they did not make one that would fit the front master cylinder.

(BTW: Only ABS bikes have a bleeder on the master cylinder ... )

Fronts here are listed as the same as rear SB1010S with ABS unit blank....is the 8125 for the master cylinder on the handlebar?

Some of the bikes actually have bleeders on the ABS control unit, the twins don't have them,
I don't think the 8125 is correct for the front caliper but can not say for certain...

Should be the same size as the KTM 950 and 990 if that helps you find some.

Ya I "think" the front calipers take the same SB1010S bleeder as the rear does. As for the nipple on the handlebar for the ABS I don't know...

The ABS-equipped front MC bleed fitting is an M5x1, which is apparently not made by SpeedBleeder.

Are the front calipers different on the Roadster vs the GS?

Okay, to answer my own question, for the F800GS, all three are SB1010S. For the F800R, the fronts are 8mm by 1.25 or SB8125L. This is not per SpeedBleeder, but from a vendor of theirs on eBay, so YMMV, but it sounds right to me.

Could the master cylinder bleed possibly be a size M6x1?

You thinkin that M6 might be the one shown in the parts fiche (ISA screw)? It appears to me that it's the only line that goes back to the ABS modulator.

I also wasn't aware that there was only one bleed screw on the front calipers...the right one has a allen bolt grub screw thing that you remove and then screw in a bleed/vent nipple. (like on the 1150 clutch bleed). Hrmmm..I can see a speedbleeder going in place of that grub screw.

I don't think so. I poked around until I found a schematic of the ABS-equipped master cylinder (on an F800GS), and the listing was M5 X 1. I was able to put a caliper on the threads of the fitting on my bike, and it was a scosche smaller than 5mm.

I can confirm that the fronts on an F800R are SB8125L (x2), and the rear is SB1010S.

Best bang for the buck mod in the world.

No connection, but I can recommend Kirby's Brake Bleeders (eB** vendor) as a very good source for these.

Is this the same product or a competitor?

Anybody have any experience with these guys:

Looks to be the same piece. My guess is that there's one mfgr, and everybody else repackages them. When I needed a single, SpeedBleeder directed me to look for one from Dorman at a local parts store.
