I have a 67 T120R w/ stock front brake. Would like to install TLS from a 68. I have several TLS hubs and brakes and noticed that in 69 they used a smaller hub The 68 brake I have fits my 67 hub. Anybody see any problems?
Thanks

the brakes are interchangable, just put the TLS brake plate right into your hub. the only difference it the brake stay tab on the 66/67 fork slider got a little bigger in 68 thru 70 but it all works.

Thanks Guys
My 67 brake is 8". My 68 brake is 8"
but I'm wondering why they would change to a 7" brake in 69. Seems like more surface area would be better.???
My reason for the change is that I live on St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands and we are nothing but steep roads and I'll need all the brakes I can get.
I bought an old rusty (salt air) T120 R and am building myself a little hot rod. bobber type.
One thing though, we drive on the left down here so I get to shift on the right and drive on the left.
Thanks again

1968 650 models - 8" TLS with cable slot at bottom - cable exits rear of plate

1969 650 models - 8" TLS with cable slot at top parallel to the fork stop slot

1970 650 models - 8" TLS with cable slot at top parallel to the fork stop slot

1969 -1972 500 models except Daytona - 7" TLS with cable slot at top parallel to the fork stop slot - Includes T90 (350cc)

1969 -1974 Daytona 500's - 8" TLS with cable slot at top parallel to the fork stop slot

1969-1970 250 single models - 7" TLS with cable slot at top parallel to the fork stop slot


Hope that makes it a bit more clear for you. Bottom line is if it was a 650 it came with an 8" front brake. :cool:

Well, I'm still confused.I have a 68 tls brake 8' (rear cable) and 2 other tls brakes 7' top cable , unknown years. Maybe those 2 are from a 500?
Thanks
