(thx to StephenB)

Also Duralast PS158 just paid 7 bucks at auto zone.
You will want to check this out before you start replacing your oil pan gasket. Sure glad I did.

Moto Bins no longer use the postal service - they use one of the air frieght crooks , so expext at least twice long for delivey and threeto four times the cost.

I used to get things in 4/5 days to Oz around at $50/60- delivey - last time it was four weeks and $165- and that was for a exhaust Y piece weighing 3 lbs .

AND THEY LEAVE IT AT THE NEAREST POST OFFICE ANYWAY- SOI HAVE TO PICK IT UP TOO.!

Vech and Richard really know their Airheads. My first choice when ordering parts.

I don't think anything but a BMW petcock will work. So rebuild yours for a few bucks or buy a used one and rebuild it. Airhead salvage, ebay, IBMWR would be a source for used. In the end you trade dollars for your time.

Under tank to handle bar brake M/C conversion

I put a R80gs master cylinder on the bar of my 76 R90/6. Braided hose properly blead and adjusted ATE caliper. The GS cylinder is the same size as the under tank unit. Lever requires major effort to get decent brake action. I think I gave up some mechanical advantige provided by the leverd cable to M/C on the under tank unit.
Do I need to push more or less flued volume to the caliper? Seems like sleeving down would work.
Any thoughts? Helpfull ones preferd.

You're correct, mhass. Sleeving the master cyl down to a smaller dia will increase the hydraulic pressure, and so, the "power" of your front brake.

It'll also cause the lever to feel a little less "wooden". ie: there should be a slight increase in lever travel over the effective range of brake function.
