Is there any problem with running other fluid, like Shimano or CODA in my Magura brakes. I am short on Magura fluid and have the other stuff on hand.

You'll void your warranty by using non-Magura brake fluid in your brakes. Not only that, but the brakes were designed around certain fluid characteristics. If the Shimano, CODA, etc., fluid doesn't match, you could have some serious braking issues. Also, seal damage can occur if there are additives, etc., in the fluid.

Not worth it, IMHO. Call Magura and they'll get you some fluid.

Magura says to only use magura blood. Order from Magura. They have 2 different size bottles.
