First I'll say yes... I know it's not the 'proper' method to shorten up the hoses. But... I've done this before with my old Formula Evo's which have a split-style olive and it worked fine. Didn't have any issues and also didn't have to bleed when done; brakes were solid. I just mounted up a nice used set of Magura SL's and the hoses are waaaaay too long. So... anyone done this? I may go ahead and try, and if worse comes to worse I'll just order the parts and wait a week or so until they arrive. I appreciate any real-world feedback though.
