    XT Brakes, am I missing something here?

    Recently ordered some XT brakes from Wiggle (front black and rear black) - not other options available when ordering i.e.: LHS rear/RHS rear etc.

    the brakes turned up today, I have a RHS front and a RHS rear.
    Is there a way to swap the lever from RHS mount to LHS mount or has wiggle stuffed up my order yet again?

    There is no way to swap sides.

    They sent you a "standard" rear (lever on right) and a "euro" or "moto style" front (front lever on right like a motorcycle, lots of european riders like their brakes this way). Shimano makes them both ways, but wiggle should have been more careful packing your order. Since you can't run the levers upside down one of them needs to go back.

    thanks for that, I was thinking that but just wanted to clarify.

    last 2 orders from Wiggle have either been wrong or missing parts. replacement ordered from CRC

    Swap out the lines at the lever. You will have to bleed them most likely afterwards.

    Wiggle sent my a RH front brake and LH rear brake and I just swapped the lines over when shortening the hoses. Doesnt help your issue with having two right hand levers.
