Speed bleeders

Anybody knows the model number for speed bleeders on a R1250RT?


All my internet searches only got me generic speed bleeders.

I only found for 2013-2017 RTs

If you can park it, and not turn around to admire it before walking away, you bought the wrong one.
IBA # 56396
MOA # 171966
2019 R1250RT (0 km)
2007 R1200RT (186000 km)

Re: Speed bleeders

Dan - double-check that data! The 1250 have different manufacturer for the front brake, it's no longer Brambo, and so I suspect that the bleed screws will be different.

I'm aware of that.
The front ones are made by Haynes and the rear is still Brembo

That's why I compared the part numbers from both

The parts fiche shows the same part numbers for the 2017 R1200RT and the 2019 R1250RT.

Re: Speed bleeders

Nonetheless, you don't need them for a couple of years yet, and I would suggest holding off getting any until then, and you might find that the sizes may be listed on SpeedBleeder site, and give you the confirmation or not. That's what I am planning to do, since the logical time to change to the device is right at the time that you do your brake flush.

That was the plan
Great minds think alike

Re: Speed bleeders

I disagree...one should NEVER POSTPONE the purchase of a new tool or farkle, even when not needed immediately!

BTW, if I remember correctly, these three bleeders require THREE different-sized wrenches! But man, these things are SO WORTH IT! They are so much fun to use, that I change my brake fluid every time I fill-up!
LAF, Bighopper and PatM55 like this.

Those who say that it can't be done shouldn't interrupt those who are doing it.

Democrats are to America what mold is to bread.

Re: Speed bleeders

If memory serves me right on my 2012rt the manual stated a brake bleed service after the first year of original purchase then every two years afterwards.
Not sure if that changed for later models.

You should look into getting your bleeders ordered so you'll have them available on your next servicing of the brakes. From experience I lost track of spare oil and air filters and went on a panic order. Thinking I had spare parts available for my next servicing. Always be prepared. The only thing you shouldn't store after opening a container is brake fluid. Fresh sealed can everytime. Closely buy the amount you need to minimize waste of fluid and money.
