Hydraulic brake - switch sides

This topic has been archived, and won't accept reply postings.

Tech question rather than the merits of switching. 

Brifters are Sram Apex 1 HRD and I wish to switch the hoses to left/front and right/rear. Can the banjo seals on the shifters be reused? The Internet isn't throwing anything up as clear evidence that yes is OK.

Hoses won't need shortening and I realise complete kits are available with the seals but can't fathom from the Sram tech sheets whether seals are available separately, and don't want to shell out unnecessarily if they can be reused.

Thanks

In reply to Stuart (aka brt):I would of thought you can just swap it over.

If you need to buy a new olives it will cost you about 50p though lol

 

In reply to Ben07:

That's my conclusion and knowing how these things work (Shimano bolts £5 for two v a massive bag from factors for £2)I'm sure I'm not stuck with Sram OEM.
