Swapping brake levers l-r (Formula Oro K24's)....

I have a bike that has the front brake on the left bar euro-stylee. I'm going to kill myself with it one day soon when instinct overcomes caution....!

The lines look comfortably long enough to swap from side to side. Is there a way to do this without having to do the whole fluid bleeding (x2) routine? I can do that if necessary but I'd rather avoid it if at all possible!

Thanks in advance.

    undo the clamps. move lever to side you want. re fit clamp. Doing the other at the same time.

    simple.

    That's what I'm thinking and hoping. What could go wrong? I don't have the tools here to do the full monty and I want to ride tomorrow. Should I gamble???
