    Reverb bleed kit - brass fitting too short!

    I went to bleed my reverb tonight...both brass fittings on the hypos are too short! The one that screws into the seat post needs to have a longer neck from the round tightening ring or it doesn't clear the side of the seatpost by the fill hole. Of course it fits fine in the thumb button but it needs to be longer on the seatpost side. Figures!

    Anyone know what size I should look for regarding threads? I really don't want to wait for one from Rockshox.

    This is strange. I find both brass fitting on the kit that came with my reverb perfect length. I'm using Reverb Stealth.

    What I have - neck is too short and tightening ring is too big, won't allow me to clear the shape of the seatpost next to the oil port. For this to work the tightening ring would need to be totally gone

    This is another manufacturer - note the length of the tip. This would work perfectly.

    The neck on my kit is definitely longer, more like in the picture in the post above. I have the kit that came with my Reverb.

    Mine was the same way. I just took it back to the LBS I purchased it from and they were happy to swap one fitting with a longer one they had sitting around.
