A 40mm will work just fine. Possibly better, I don't know.

Thought about the 40mm, I'm sure it would function, but I think I would have to switch out the master to the larger one for it to work well.

I did manage to find a 38mm one on ebay for a decent price that looks good.

I bet the 40 would work better, even without swapping MCs. You'd have greater than stock lever travel, but that means better leverage so to speak, and improved modulation. On my RD350, I replaced the stock 14 mm MC with a 12mm, and it's better in every way.

Late K75S mirrors had the same cone shaped back.

I have a rough one (metal is OK) from a '74 R90. Know if it's the same part?

I've got a black one from a /5 that's in decent shape. I'd let it go cheap, or would trade. Check your PM's

I've heard that people interchange the front fenders from /5 to /6 and now have been told this is wrong. I think some people have done it though just not sure how the one matches up to the fitment of the other. If you look at the two different bikes, a /5 has the fender mounted to the brace which goes over the fender, a /6 has the fender mounted to the brace which is under the fender. Apparently using the wrong fender gives some different alignment to the fender. maybe it's not too noticeable. I would have to see it done to be able to tell you if I thought it mattered.

Everybody knows the /7 fender is shorter than the /6 fender. But did you know they have a different profile? I put a /7 brace on my /6 and had to trim the /6 fender to make it fit the later model brace. I don't think this is too noticeable but have been told by one purist that I can't do that. Oh Well.

Fender is, brace isn't.

I have a new, never installed Brown's Side Stand for $125 shipped.

Also, anyone know where you can get the hardware for these side stands? I don't have the stand in front of me and can't recall if it's specially fabricated. The one I'm selling has the hardware, the one I'm planning on using doesn't.

Still looking for a large /6 tank.
Preferably in black with no dents! Don't need the petcocks.

I've got a smaller /6 black tank to trade and cash towards it or just plain out cash! My small tank needs a relining but there's no dents or major scuffs/scratches.


Looking for a friend btw, so I'll probably point him to ya if you have anything
