#shigura shiguraaaa 🎵🎶 Isn't that a real song? Who likes #bikehacks? Me! Who likes the feel of #shimano levers and power of #magura callipers? Me! 💪🏽☺️ What you need.. 1x MT5 brakes (cheap from de Germans) .
1x M8000 lever (available from @mountainbikesdirect)
1x MT5 compatible nipple (got mine from cyclingdeal.com.au in a bleed kit)
Cut the MT5 lever off and connect the M8000 lever as normal using the Shimano olive and barb. Remove grub screw from caliper adjacent to the banjo and insert the MT5 nipple. Then bleed like you'd do a regular Shimano brake. Once the bubbles are out plug the funnel, remove the barb and screw the grub back in to seal the caliper.
I've never ridden Magura's before but this setup is the most powerful I've ever used. Better than Saint/Zee, Hope V4's and Sram. Modulation is in between Saint and V4.. I'd guess the 8.P pad swap makes them a little more on the touchy side though.
