Bleed valve?

At first I thought this was a zerk fitting but it is a bleed valve. I assume it is for the rear brakes. Anyone know what this bleeds?

My thinking was this bike has linked brakes so there may be a bleed point at the high point between the front and rear brakes.

Interesting thought there Rob. Now ya got me wanting to verify in the manual. It does have unified brakes. The reservoir for it is behind the right side lower black panel that faces your knee.

Nope it is the clutch bleeder. You got it right with post #4 above.
