    Shimano XT M785 disc caliper broken

    My Shimano Xt M785 caliper lasted only 4 weeks, my LBS mechanic replaced the bleeding knob of the caliper however the oil is still leaking.

    Is this a common problem with shimano XT M785 calipers?

    there are some similar issues:
    m785 caliper body leaking (not piston, nor banjo) - is it dead.
    Also, the hose near the bajobolt could be leaking. Thats a common problem with some XT XTR brakes. You can get a replacement from Shimano.
