Curious if anyone knows the answer to this question. Can you mate the XT hydraulic hose to Magura Louise FR brake? Hope specs Kit 8 to fit both Magura Gustav and Shimano brakes. Claims both have a M6 connector on one end and an M8 on the other. Kit ain't cheap. Shimano kit is cheaper and I'm wondering if it will work.

The reason I am inquiring is that I just got a Post Mount fork. I've got a 210mm Louise FR setup up front, which is impossible to convert to Post Mount. I need a new caliper and a bracket. I found a 2004 Louise FR setup on clearance, where the only difference is a non-wavy rotor. The problem is that the hose has a 0 degree out, and I want a 90deg out, so my hose doesn't stick out so much. Going with Hope kit for Gustav would to that, but it is very pricey, going with Shimano is much cheaper.
