    XTR banjo bolt adjustment?

    Is it possible to loosen the banjo bolt on my rear XTR Trail brake and change the angle of the hose without having to bleed?

    Thanks!

    If you are really lucky. If I was you I'd put a bit of pressure on the brake lever (two person job obviously) while loosening that bolt so that fluid comes out instead of air getting in. When you are done top up the master cylinder. Take out your pads, or shield them somehow so you dont wreck them with brake fluid.

    Sure, loosen the bolt just enough to get the hose to move where you want it. Very little, if any, fluid will be lost. At least that's been my experience.

    Pretty easy. Just make sure to do it carefully and slowly.
