Weeping brembo..

I noticed the other day that the inner bleed screw on the drive side caliper is dribbling a bit. Has anyone had this and fixed it?
I read somewhere that it is common on Brembo calipers on motorcycles and they put ptfe tape around the thread as that's where the weeping is from. Thoughts..

That sounds odd as leeking fluid should come out of the hole in the nipple before it comes from the thread. That is unless the Brembo bleed nipple is different to normal. Is the nipple tight? Is it visibly damaged? 2012MY RRS 5.0 Supercharged Autobiography (Current)

Seems tight and doesn't look damaged. I think it actually may be leaking through the hole as it's popped the dust cap off. Perhaps there is something stopping it seating correctly.

Brembo recommend tightening to a torque of 19Nm on the bleed nipples, might be worth checking, otherwise could be worn taper/damaged seat on the nipple or caliper, but wouldn't really think it would be the caliper seat.

I’d be tempted to slightly loosen the nipple and retorque. If it still leeks, replace with a new stainless nipple (seen on eBay specific to the RR Brembo) and bleed your brake. 2012MY RRS 5.0 Supercharged Autobiography (Current)
