    Shimano xt m775 dual control compatible with xt m785 brake calipers?

    So i'm still using good old dual control xt m775 levers. But i have some problems with my brakes. It takes long to get them rub free and i think they had their best time. So is it maybe possible to use the xt m785 calipers with my dual control levers?

    Thanks alot!

    Yes they will work but you are not going to gain any performance benefit from switching. If your pistons are sticking, clean and lube them with a few drops of brake oil.

    I have had the dual control levers paired to both m785 and old LX calipers and there is no difference in performance, with the exception of the LX calipers being much more reliable and problem free. You are going to need new hoses, too - the m785 use a hose with a crimped-on banjo (that likes to leak).

    Thank you both!

    So the brakes won't be easier to set up with the m785 calipers?
