Has anyone bought recently XT785 brakes and could share what was in the box and whether the caliper and the lever where connected?

Thanks

Caliper and lever were connected, bolts to mount and spare olive and union supplied if needing to shorten hose.

Thanks Ian,

did you get in addition 2 screw plastic clips, two yellow blocks(for holding the hose while inserting the metal insert) one yellow and one red caliper spacers and brake adapter?

I ordered front and rear brakes separately from CRC and the boxes turned up with completely different contents :)

The yellow spacer is the bleed spacer, i find mine to be too thick by 1mm :/ the red spacer is for when you transport the bike without the disc / wheel in place to prevent the pistons moving.

My brakes didn't have all the bits and pieces. One came not connected at all and without olive and insert so i can connect it and on top both with different type pads.

Sending everything back and they promised to sort it out. Did not expect that from CRC :)
