vanishedone commented on the word bleed nipple
Also known (perhaps confusingly) as bleeding nipples; from http://www.webbikeworld.com/Motorcycle-technical-articles/bleeding-motorcycle-brakes/bleeding-motorcycle-brakes.htm: 'I did notice that the clear hose that I have been using to place over the brake bleed nipple needed to be rimmed each time I used it. I think the hose is getting old and hard and it needs replacement. This was exacerbated by the bleed nipples on the Ducati, which seemed to be very sensitive to the exact alignment of the hose on the nipple.'
