How do you adjust the lever on a Magura MT7?
This will vary from bike to bike, so Magura builds an adjustment by using a banjo bolt fitting that allows the hose to come off at any angle. To adjust, simply loosen the T-25 banjo bolt and rotate the brake hose to the preferred angle and snug it back down.
How do you break in Magura brakes?
New brake pads and rotors only attain their final braking force during the bedding-in phase. To achieve this ride on even ground and accelerate to a speed of 30 km/h before braking to a standstill. Repeat this process at least 30 times per brake. The brake pads and rotor are now bedded-in and can perform optimally.
Can I mix brake levers and calipers?
