    Shimano caliper-lever compatibility?

    I'm asking for a friend who recently got hold of a set of Shimano non-series calipers (don't know the exact model). He's now looking for levers that'll go with them.

    Our question is, would any Shimano hydro brake lever work with the non-series hydro calipers? He's found a good deal on a set of XT levers.
    Better to have and not need it, than to need it and not have it.

    Interesting. I kind of thought the issues would be about different levers pushing different volumes of oil.
    Good to hear that set-up works for you.
    Thanks for the input
