    XT 755/765 Brake Fluid......Finish Line?

    Anybody use the Finish Line Mineral Oil brake fluid in their older Shimano brakes?

    How does it work?

    Do I need to completely drain the Shimano fluid out, or is it ok to mix.

    The Finish Line fluid is quite a bit cheaper and available in smaller amounts.....Shimano only sells their fluid in 1 liter bottles......way more than I will ever need.
    I resolve to constantly assert my honest opinion on anything and everything - whether it is requested or not.

    I use it in my M775s with no issues. I never bothered to fully flush out the Shimano mineral oil, as the viscosities of the two fluids seem similar. I haven't had any issues in the 2.5 years I've been running these brakes on two bikes.

    Never mixed myself but if you have a good lbs check with them. Mine will fill a small 2oz bottle or whatever I need and sell it to me from their bulk for just a couple of dollars.
