    xt hose replacement?

    This is my first set of hydraulic so bear with me. I ordered and payed for xtr 780's but they sent me 785's. The problem is the rear hose is too short. Can some one point me to directions on replacing the hose? I've googled and can't find much.
    Small ring in front makes it easier. Small ring in back makes it harder. That blows my mind.

    You have a few options - you can get a brand new BH90 hose for the M785 with a crimped-on banjo which is rather expensive, not serviceable and which was very prone to failures in the past (do not buy them cheap from Asian ebay sellers..). Or you could get an XTR banjo kit BH96 and a cheap hose like BH59 if you already have the long caliper bolt, which is what I did then my BH90 failed. Or you could get an after-market system from Jagwire or Goodridge.

    Thanks StiHacka,
