    Speed Bleeder

    I would like to replace the OE bleeder valve with a Speed Bleeder.

    Does anyone have a size for the bleeder valve next to the front brake reservoir on a 2012 R1200GS. I've already replaced the front and rear caliper bleeders

    There is no master cylinder bleeder listed for the 1200GS on the Speed Bleeder site; at least as far as I can see. (http://www.speedbleeder.com). I've had good luck with emailing them when there was no bleeder listed for my Yamaha. They figured out what I needed and responded quickly. (speedbleeder@earthlink.net)

    No need for a speed bleeder there, that is just to let air out of the line at the highest point, pumping the lever to bleed that would be counter productive, as it would push the bubble down the line.

    According to the RepRom when changing brake fluid in the entire system you start with that bleed valve
