    If you are doing a straight swap, just undo the union at the levers and swap them over. Make sure you don’t squeeze the levers while you are doing it, and you shouldn’t lose any fluid, and no bleeding necessary.

    I just did this recently on a rear Deore brake, with the added step of pumping the pistons out a good bit first, allowing me to push them back in when re-attached. Worked well. Better than when I tried it on my XT’s a year ago anyway…

    Thanks for all the advice. Its irrelevant now, as the rear has sold out. 🙁

    Can anyone advise how easy it is to do this? Want to swap the levers over, but wouldn’t know how to do it.
