    Magura MT8 adjustment?

    I have the Magura MT8 brakes on my Epic. The brake levers for the two brakes are the same distance from the handlebar when not being used. However, the front lever goes twice the distance as the rear when using the brakes. They both feel very good with excellent stopping power. But, I don't like the fact that the rear brake engages further from the handlebar. Is there a way to adjust it, without affecting the distance from the bar when not being squeezed?

    Try to push the pistons back in the calliper and then try again. Also, you can try to bleed them. I had a pair of MT6 and they need a lot of adjusting to work well. But when they work, they are wonderful . Now I am on XT and I miss the modulation from Magura.
