    Shimano XT - Line Trim Question

    I picked up some "Shimano XT BL-M785-B Hydraulic Disc Brake" brakes online, and they did not come with any of the bits needed to shorten the hose. From what I gather I need the brass olive and connecting insert. I have all of the tools except the "yellow hose clamp tool" shown in step 5. It looks like that is used to hold the hose when tapping in the connecting insert without damaging the tube.

    Any tips on where I can pick one of these up? I am guessing a trip to my local LBS is in order, but thought I would check first to see if this is this something I can find online?

    So what I need is the brass bits and the hose clamp tool. Does that come in a nice little package?

    Thanks!

    I have a XT785 rear brake that did not come with the yellow blocks. I'm about to order the front brake that I figured comes with it. Guess not? I was thinking Shimano figured most people will be a set so they only needed to put the blocks in with one brake. I'm not sure I want to spend $9.95 + postage...
