    Replacing hose on Shimano hydraulic brakes?

    I have some Shimano brakes. Not sure which model but mid-range. I moved them onto another bike but the rear hose wasn't long enough so I bought a Clarks replacement hose. I am having problems fitting the hose however. The brass fitment doesn't seem to fit over the hose even though it was supplied with it so it must be the right one. Is there any trick to fitting it on?
    Cheers

    You're probably referring to the olive. It is usually a bit loose, it will compress and form a tight seal when tightened. If that's not it, please supply a detailed description

    Yes it is the olive that I am referring to. This one is far from loose which is annoying as it was supplied with the hose. I guess I will just have to try and source another one from somewhere. Are the Shimano hoses much bigger than others?
