I found a thread on Speed Bleeders for the GRiSO. The sizes are for a 2007 as follows:

Front SB8125

Rear SB6100

Clutch SB1010S

Anyone know if these sizes are different for the 2013?

Well, answering myself.
I just got the fittings and they are wrong. The regular bleeders are not for banjo fittings.
I will have to use the old method.

Picking up on an old thread;

Here's the parts diagram for the front brake banjo. Which shows that a speed valve can be substituted.

Am I understanding this correctly ?

Anyone know what the size would be ?

Cheers

A bit of digging from a different angle came up with an M8 x 1.25, Speed bleeder pn SB8125 L for Bob's (Ohiorider ) 1200 Sport.

My understanding is that the two models, GRiSO & 1200 Sport, used the same brakes, calipers etc.

Nah, the Sports, Norge's etc. use axial mount calipers but the bleed nipples are I believe the same.

If you use the 'old method' and have a compressor, a quality vac bleeder makes it very easy to do without introducing air into the system.

Walk me through how you do this. It's new to me

There are YouTube worth looking at, here's an overview:
The bleeder has a bottle filled with brake fluid. It sits atop the master reservoir.

The bleeder hose is connected to the bleed nipple. The compressor hose is fitted to the valved bleeder atop a catch bottle. The nipple is cracked with a spanner and the bleeder valve opened by a lever arm so the pressure can be controlled to draw fluid into the catch bottle. When the fluid runs clear the operation is finished. Bubbles can be drawn through, you'll work out when it's done  Used it for GRiSO clutch and brakes. .
