Sanity check - MB brake hoses=SE6A ?

Can anyone confirm for me please that the flexible brake hoses on the MB are exactly the same as on the SE6A, as regards length and fittings? No extra 10mm for longer suspension travel or any little quirks like that ? Thanks.

I would be very surprised if the MB hoses are different - even with the front wheel spacers. Club traders will know anyway.

QRG list MB Brakes "AS PER SE6a" and Goodrich hoses for all models rather than model specific. If I remember correctly the Goodrich hoses I bought for mine were just listed as Scimitar. I might still have the packaging.
