    Hope moto V2...same caliper as the 2009 X2 ??

    I'm thinking of picking up a set of moto V2,the price is right and I really like the lever design and look over the 2009 levers.
    Do the v-2 use the same caliper,hose and connectors as the 2009 x2..

    The Moto V2 does not come with the Tech ('09) levers. The Moto V2 was the first incarnation of the V2 and shared its lever with the Moto M6. The Tech V2 has the same caliper but uses the Tech lever. Here's a link to some pics of the Moto lever.

    The X2 (Tech or Pro) is a different caliper (and pads) all together. The hoses and fitting are the same, but that's where the similarity ends.

    I should add that the X2, although versatile, is essentially a dedicated cross-country brake. The V2 has larger pistons (and pads) and is at the other end of the scale, being primarily a descent brake. The M4 sits in between the X2 and V2 in terms of intended application.
