Mix and Match Hydraulic Levers and Callipers
edited June 2016
Does anybody know if its possible to mix and match Hydraulic levers and Calliper?
If so what should I look at for?
The doctor said I needed to start drinking more whiskey. Also, I’m calling myself ‘the doctor’ now
Yes, in some cases, but why?
They need to be the same fluid - DOT and Mineral don't mix
They need the same fittings - so probably the same manufacturer
They need the same volume of fluid pushed from the lever as received by the caliper - less easy to find out
You can nearly always mix and match parts from the same brand without issue, almost any Shimano calliper works with almost any Shimano lever.
