- errr….can i save oily pads & how do i shorten the brake hoses?
You might be able to save the pads with a mix of scrubbing them with detergent / solvent, burning them over a flame and sanding them down. You can destroy the bonding to the backplate doing this and you have a better chance with only light contamination
Dunno what the SLX hoses are made of but I shorten hope ones with a pair of pliers so I don’t see why not. You may well need new olives to reconnect them thoPosted 8 years agoalpinMember
1 – shimano slx hoses come up waaay too long.
only found that out after fitting.
i’ve got a set of proper cable/housing cutters, will they do?
2 – also i hadn’t tightened the bleed valve up properly on the back so each time i braked oil spat out.
thought about putting the pads into the oven or roasting them on the hob to try and rescue them.
reckon it’ll work?
