I fitted some new grips on my GT earlier so had to move the brake levers out a bit, tightening the lever up i snapped the bolt in it :evil: :evil: :evil:

Just about managed to drill out the broken stud and re-tap it to get a larger bolt in, I tell you something though Magura levers are soft as s**t when it comes to drilling and tapping :shock:

Crisis over

Carry on :)

I also found their hex bolts too be not very deep. And quite a few times have nearly rounded the head when tighting up and the Allen key has slipped :(

I noticed that too, but what really surprised me was the weightlessness of them :shock: i suppose its a fine line between lightweight and durability

16 words,

Go online and get the whole workshop manual for HS33 & HS11 as a free PDF.

http://www.dahon.co.uk/manuals/2005/magura/hs-11.pdf

Very useful, and prints in color.
