okey so after waiting a week, finally got the mt5 4 piston calliper brake set in order to enhance my braking experience on my 90 plus pound 3000w dual motor drift trike,and i weigh 190ish lbs...by the way top speed on my trike is around 30plus mph...
upon receiving the brake set i went to luna cycle website to follow instructions to shorten the length of hose of this brake,
did everything as instructed but the instructions nor the lunacycle have mentioned anywhere that when ever u try to shorten the Magura hydraulic hose, the user need to buy or must have spare set of olive and brass connecting insert on hand,
very frustrated but what can u do ,now have to wait for new bob and olive to arrive and a bleed kit.
if magura is reading this kindly put a spare set of bob and olive in ur super expensive brake set so ur buyers don't have to screw around.
thank you.

Kinda strange. I have dealt with Magura and they seem to be very thorough and complete when responding to customer needs. I can say from my own experience, when they sent me bleed kits, levers, plugs, etc, everything was included for all needed repairs. Perhaps you can give them another try and voice your concerns with them directly. BTW-Cool "adult" big wheel you have there. Cheers.

Not being familiar with trikes, is the brake just for the front wheel and none at the back? There's no fear of the back swinging around during a panic stop? Probably not, right?
