Hi, is it possible to use a newer style Hope brake lever with my old pre-mono era M4 caliper?

I've recently installed a funny gear shifter on my handlebars, and the lump coming out of the hope lever it blocking the shifter. :(

I have a Mono M4 running with a Tech lever. Works fine.

THanks all, I actually found that the newer levers are also a little lumpy in the wrong places, so I've stick with the older lever and filed it away a little. :)
