  • Any lever any caliper?

    Have seen some bodges like this work, don’t think there are any guarantees tho. Don’t mix mineral oil and dot fluid parts I think.


    Can I get any caliper from any disc brake and – assuming I can deal with the hose – attach it to my formula oro lever?
    I want to replace a caliper I can’t seem to replace the seals on successfully and can’t find a cheap oro caliper or brake to buy to use. I would use one that uses similar brake fluid



    Maybe, but it also might not work at all. Just buy a deore brake instead.


    yup have done this, as Cynic-al says make sure you get a caliper for the right fluid and it will be fine. Formula use dot 4 and or 5.1 (which you can mix, just do not use dot 5 or mineral) so any Avid brake will work.
    Superstar do universal connection kits.

    You need to make sure the lever pull/fluid pushed is enough for the caliper you are working with. Could be quite hit and miss really. What are you trying to repair?
