    Replacement Magura clamp bolts?

    Hey guys,

    I have Magura MT4 brakes and recently had to loosen the clamp bolts so I could adjust the lever to a 15 degree angle for bleeding, however when I tried to loosen the bolts one of them stripped almost completely and so it cannot be undone properly and the other one snapped clean off

    Looks like I'll have to use a drill to try and get the remainder of the bolt out

    I used a brand new T25 X-Tools tool but somehow still managed to ruin two bolts so I'm wondering if they're any alternatives, perhaps steel bolts?

    I really don't want to pay 16 for a pack of 10 awful bolts from Magura.

    any suggestions guys?

    Thanks.

    Replacement Magura clamp bolts?

    At least on the MT6, those are custom nuts which are removed, there is a threaded stud permanently installed in the lever. If you damaged the custom nut, you'll have to get that from Magura - maybe ask JudeMonica here for free parts ;-). If it's the threaded stud, I have no suggestions, definitely requires Magura service.

    Yeah it looks the same as the MT6's from what I can tell.

    I need the custom nuts, not the threaded stud (Thankfully).

    Who's JudeMonica, a Magura rep? and how do I contact him/her?

    Thanks.
