Question Pressure bleed rear brake: reservior cap needed

I bled my rear brake and was 33% successful: the previous 3 inches of travel has been reduced to "only" 2 inches of travel.

So that equates roughly going from "this is f'ing useless" to "well... it will keep the bike from rolling when I'm stopped".

This was doing remove rear caliper, bleed while nipple on top, plus new rear brake pads. The old pads only had about 20% left.

So next attempt is to build a pressure bleeder, but I need a spare reservoir cap to do that. I can buy the Ducati one for around $15-$20, which is fine... but if there's a $5 one at Autozone for some other silly bike that saves me an hour of driving to the dealer... that would be nice.

Does anyone know of an alternate cap that will fit?

Part number for the Ducati cap is 89340051A for anyone curious.

Also... damn it's cold. Thank goodness for garages.
