    New XT 775 vs Saint 800

    Looks like the calipers are the same and the only difference is the levers.
    Am I right???

    the 800 calipers are the same as the previous generation XT (760s)...the 770s have a marginally bigger piston and use an inline (0 degree) connector instead of the 90 deg. banjo used on the 800 and 760.

    Is there a big difference between the xt 770 and saint (xt760) levers?

    I currently have XT770s calipers with saint levers and goodridge lines on 203mm rotors and I need more braking power for the front. I maybe thought of getting a new front lever assembly with xt 770 specs

    the servowave should help a tiny bit..but I don't think it will be that big of a change.....have you tried different pad compounds?

    I have goodridge pads, dont know which compund really.

    I get turkey wabble on the front and uneven brake force at different degrees of the disc with the same lever actuation. The disc is not bent and I sanded both pads and disc
