Yeah the Germans like running the levers the other way around, my Marta SL Carbons on the 300 were exactly the same. Only problem is I am now used to them like that, but all my other bikes are set up in the UK style...all gets a little confusing!

If you dont get any other offers feel free to drop them in a jiffy bag and I'll be happy to swap the levers and refill them.

They are just right setup to me, did you bought it from continental seller? Nice ones. Why you just not unscrew and swap cables ? Did it with every brakes, maguras and discs annoyingly set wrong way round here :D If you'll do it gently you shouldn't loose fluid.
