Syphon er en alternativ stavning af siphon (Concise Oxford, f.eks.)

Det oversættes typisk med hævert, men der er også noget, der hedder ´siphon lubrication´ i L&H´s Tekniske Ordbog,
som oversættes med vægesmøring.
´Siphon wick´ oversættes med smørevæge.

Jeg er ikke sikker, hvordan de kan forbindes med cykelbremser, men prøv at lede videre efter ´siphon´.
