Yes you can mate, any dealer or lots of aftermarket guys sell them. It's not a MV specific part.

No luck guys. Gonna have to order it. No one local here stocks it.
Decided to let it be and drown my sorrows at a friends impromptu bbq.
Thanks again for all your help guys.

Just get an M10x1.25 banjo bolt.......you don't have to have a bleed nipple except for

flushing the fluid

Sorted! My next door neighbour biker buddy just popped round with a 10x1.25 banjo from his leftovers after upgrading his brakes on his R6. Just tested it and all good. Have the Hel banjo/nipple ordered so will fit and flush this week.

While you're in there might as well flush it ......

Getting ALL the old fluid old is a bit of a PITA

Remove slave, push piston all fhe way in and hold it there with a small C clamp

empty the reservoir and wipe it clean with a lint free cloth ......now the dirty/old fluid is

in the hose refill the reservoir......loosen the banjo bolt pump the M/C until you get

clean fluid.... tighten the banjo bolt....remove the clamp ...pump the piston out a ways

push it back in and clamp it again any air is now in the M/C....... point the hose end of

the M/C downhill so the return port is at the high point...... squeeze the lever repeatedly

~10mm you will hear/feel the bubbles leaving, stop when they're gone

remount everything and pump the slave back up

It's done

Have a beer
