Shimano brake bleed funnel.

I ordered the Shimano brake bleed kit and while it fits my Sora levers it does not fit my 105 levers. Is there a different funnel I can order or an adapter?
Any information would be very appreciated.
Frank.

You need a little adapter piece that screws into the bottom of the funnel for 105/Ultegra/DA and GRX levers.

Bikes: Too many. Cannondale SuperSix, Trek Remedy 8, Trek Crossrip+ get the most ride time.

The little adapters come with new boxed Shimano road levers, and often with new boxed bikes but aren't always passed onto customers.
