    Are 500sec bleed screws M8x1.25mm?

    My brake bleed screws are all pretty rusty, so when I get to doing a brake overhaul I am going to replace them all. I always assumed they are M8 x 1.25mm, however somebody told me to be careful because they are M8 x 1.0mm, which incidentally are very uncommon. I can't really look at my old ones...
