It is pretty clear to me if an owner cannot work out what size a bolt,nut or bleeder screw is to use a spanner on,he should not attempt to work on his own bike and take it to a bike shop.
We gave the guy the answer to his question after we were shocked by the question.
This forum is well known for the help members pass on to MV owners in need.
But silly questions get silly answers.

When I first saw the original post, I assumed it was something picked up by a Spam Bot. Then I noted that the member had joined in 2013. That prompted my wonder as to whether the post was legit or in jest, because, presumably, 'flybyaviator' might have owned an MV for the previous 5 years and in so doing would be more conversant with the basics of 'mechanical aptitude'.

The crucial point here though is that despite a raft of sarcasm the OP was assisted. Further, with 100-plus posts made over that 5-year membership, the OP should have foreseen that his question might stimulate the playfulness of some members.

I'll come clean by noting that, when I first read the initial post, I thought I was being baited.

Anyone who owns a 160 hp sport bike in the form of an MV and who would ask such a question should be relegated to working on his (or hers, for that matter) daughter's tricycle until the said person has attained the proper mechanical understanding and critical thinking needed when within 30 yards of an MV.

Nevertheless, and to augment @theknurl recommendation, I might have instead chose the following instrument to provide an accurate answer and to avoid multiple trips to the tool box housing the 68 wrenches, spanners or funny looking things with the hole in one end.

Admittedly, for me, 68 was just a rough estimate, but I can't be off by much.

Thank you Nigel for saying that.
While I will generally fall all over myself to help someone who really needs it, this inclination is tempered by 1) confining myself to topics on which I have a reasonably high level of knowledge or experience and/or 2) refraining from being baited by someone who should at least try.

And yes, while I will at first beat the shit out of you with sarcasm, in the end, the job will get done.

To be fair, tis far better to ask a silly question than make a silly mistake ?

But I do believe he was " having a giraffe ! "

Anyway nobody said use an 8mm brake spanner/wrench ?

I meant the brake union claw type spanner Mitchy so that the bleed hose can be connected first : )

Why not put a standard 12 point wrench on the nipple and then the hose?
Look, I found a use for the otherwise useless vacuum lines on a 1st Gen F4
I have the SnapOn 8-10mm brake bleed wrench, but it's not as easy to use here.....now on cars
