    Swapping calipers

    So I'm swapping out the X2 for an M4 and will be using the same levers and same lines. My plan was basically to just swap them out at the banjo bolt and bleed the system as the caliper needs to be filled with fluid. Am I missing anything?

    No. Your working with Hope products, it really is as easy as that. Enjoy the extra power and a little more modulation.

    No, but you might want to use new copper washers for the banjo.

    Yeah, the new caliper came with a complete banjo assembly, including the copper washers. I had planned to swap those out as well, but reuse the old banjo.

    Thanks all. Looking forward to NOT overheating my rear brake!
