Several people (Caramba Kid, MikeD & Legrandefromage) have helped me out recently so I am returning the Karma. I have this used once Hope kit but no brakes. I am sending it buck shee to Kaiser who will need it soon. If anyone else wants to use it, PM Kaiser!

(Please excuse the mess! I really must have a tidy).

The clear hose you would attatch to the bleed nipple is ...

9mm external & 5.5mm internal diameter ,

I suppose the internal diameter is the only size that really matters as its

held in place by itself gripping the nipple (ooh-err) :wink:

I have one of these, they are excellent for spraying hydraulic brake fluid over everything within a 6 foot radius of your bike. Make sure you read and follow the instruction first :oops: and make sure all the connections are air tight before introducing brake fluid to the system.

The Hope system is quite unique, it uses air pressure in a bike tyre to push brake fluid through the system.
