HELP! Sheared off brake bleeder valve
I ordered up a set of Goodridge Speed Bleeders and attempted to install them today. I put the first one in and I must have over-tightened it, because it sheared off. Here's the result:
I still have the original bleeder to put back in, but I can't think of a way to remove the bit that's stuck inside. I'm reluctant to use a reverse drill bit or EZ Out, because I don't want to get any metal bits in my brake system.
If it's a good day to wash the bike, it's a better day to ride the bike.
