Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by $$$ does not equal quality First off, the brake lever feel on my MT8's were horrible. They were about 2cm from the handle bars when fully pressed. Search online and you'll find numerous people with the same problem. Secondly, they had a recall on them so I sent them back for fixing. When they came back, the brake lever distance went straight to the handlebars. Bled them using the Magura service kit and noticed nothing but oil leaking out of the master cylinders on both front and rear (a lot of people reported leaking master cylinders too). Contacted Magura and long story short, they're not covering it because "it seems like DOT fluid has been used which would cause the leaking" and only offered a replacement master cylinder at a discounted price. Sorry Magura, not going to spend more money on top of the $700+ I already spent on the brakes. Love the look and weight of these brakes but the quality lacks. Magura does have good customer service but not good enough when it comes to a faulty item. Got myself some Shimano XTR's and never looked back. 30 May 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by amazing Best brakes I've used. Been running XTR disc on one of my bikes and Hope M4's on my main full sus and these MT8 are so light but out perform both shimano and hope now putting MT8 / MT6 on other bikes as I'm completely converted 27 January 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by WOW Cant believe I spent 600 quid on brakes but wow, these are just simply brilliant, switched from Hope Tech X2 which i thought were the dogs, and the Magura which i will admit I am surprised with are better. Bought due to weight and yes the looks but the modulation is very good, power is well controlled and stopping ability is excellent. Thumbs up, oh yes and they look amazing had alot of people in my group begging to try them. 27 November 2012

Answer: 
These brakes are sold individually; the price is for a single caliper, hose, rotor and lever; pre-bled and ready to fit. The levers are flip-flop so can be mounted as left or right hand as you prefer and the hose length is 2000mm so they are long enough for Rear brake appliations, and can be shortened to suit front brake applications as well. They will fit all of your listed bikes.
