Bleeding brakes: bleed screw size? I.D.

2008 VStar 1100 Custom

Can anyone telling me the I.D. hose I should buy to slip on to the bleed screw? Heck, maybe I should buy 1' of every size!

Thanks in advance.

The nipple has a dia. of .275" and the dust cap has a I.D. of .225" so a 1/4'' tubing should be fine but the nipple is short and hard to keep it in place.

Thank you very much. You're always helpful and I'm very appreciative.

LMAO. Too funny. I have a friend that did same thing a few years back. Only over a golf course buzzing golfers.

LOL! Did they fine him?

We live about 1.5 miles from Hooks Airport in Tomball. It's cool on the weekends when the vintage B-17 bomber is at the airport. That is one amazing machine!
