Hey i was riding my bike around and noticed something i had never seen before. A bike had the xt 8000 brake levers but the calibers were not xt? Not quite sure which calibers. So i thought instead of upgrading my whole brake system i could just change the levers for half the price. I am currently running Shimano acera or BR-M395 brakes, i am wondering if i would be able to upgrade the levers to the XT 8000 and keep the same calibers. I only want to Change the levers not the whole system. So WOULD THIS WORK???
