83 Aspencade rear air hose?

Post by tinyejp »



Does anyone have a source for the hose that goes from the air valves at the forks to the rear distribution block? Or does anyone perhaps know what this fitting is called so I can try to find an off-the-shelf replacement?

My recently acquired 83 1100 Aspencade needed a rear master cylinder rebuild, and the fitting at the distribution block sheared off above the nut during (a rather hamfisted) disassembly. Short of valving it at the block and using a hose from the accessory port...I'm at a loss.

Thanks!

It shouldn't be too much trouble to remove the sheared off fitting. Take the distribution block to a machine shop and have them do it if you don't have the tools.

I've got it off, but the end of the pressure hose is the part that sheared. I have a good feeling I could cut the hose and replace the fitting with a clamped barb fitting, now that I'm thinking about it...there really isn't that much pressure there.
