Cam - i clamped the hose with a proper set of clamps, that sorted that one out, and when i took the caliper off, i took the bolt out, put a large nut with the copper washers on it and wound it in, seemed to seal it nicely :) I hope that helps

i think this was posted up before for if you have braded hoses as you cant clamp them but apparently if you jam the brake pedal down this will stop the fluid draining out the system, probably easiest wedging something between the pedal and the seat to hold it down.

As already said Craig, if you've got braided hoses fitted then these can't be clamped as you will damage them internally.

I've got several pairs of Snap-On hose clamps, but their only suitable for rubber hoses, but work well.

Your going to have to bleed them anyway if you disconnect them.......

Get yer wallet out again. Ain't Evo ownership brilliant :crackup:
