- Shimano servo wave – compatibility question
Can anyone tell me if the current shimano XT "servo wave" levers are compatible with non servo wave shimano brake calipers?
I am specifically thinking of using the XT M775 levers:
with the XTR M975 calipers:

Why not just get these
swap the hoses over, carefully … without squeezing the levers or knocking or dropping the hoses, job done, don't know if the XTR calipers are that much better than the XT but you'll save yourself some ££'s and the faff of connecting hoses and bleeding etcPosted 8 years ago
I’m also considering XT servo wave with XTR caliper units as the XTR grey will match my hope skewers, headdoc, seatclamp, front disc and soon to be updated hubs – vain & unnecessary, absolutely 🙂
However, just been reading how the XT caliper ‘sports’ a cam-link gizmo that increases the leverage. Think I’m getting a bit confused here, can I assume that the XT & XTR caliper units are essentially the same, or does the XT caliper have a gizmo that works/synchs inconjuction with the servo-wave XT reservoir unit?
