    Default bleed funnel for shimano RS 685 lever

    I've got a pair of shimano RS 685 hydraulic levers and want to bleed the lines. I'm having trouble finding the proper bleed funnel and/or adaptor to use with these levers. Can anyone point me in the right direction for the proper funnel? Thanks.

    The old one was yellow and part code "ESMDISCBP", had a 4mm thread (IIRC). Now you can get the new model, which is transparent so more convenient, it has the same thread but comes with a screw-on adapter for the new 6mm threads.
    Part n. for the adapter alone is "Y0C698050", make sure you use a GOOD 2mm allen key to remove the bleed screw, if always very tight and easy to strip the hex.
