    My master cylinder ram seems to be sticking, I want to strip down for repairs. Has anyone done this? There only appears to one small bolt aside the funnel port.

    The lever action seems sluggish compared to other same XT units I’ve tried. I dunno wether it’s the hslfords bike hut mineral oil that’s causing it in terms of viscosity?

    well it seems Mr Shimano doesnt want you to repair or maintain his stuff as you cant gain access or remove the lever!! so lets see what SRAM have to offer
