Anyone have a right side CL450 (5 speed drum brake) switch (starter button, headlight on/low/high) that has the built in lever mount and a lever operated brake switch. I working on converting a wimpy front disc to a tls.

Allen... As far as I can see, a CL 360 one would be the same (don't have parts fiche to compare numbers).... I have a 360 one I can take a pic of if you'd like.....


TLS?.... Did you mean DLS / double leading shoe?...I guess Twin Leading Shoe works as well..... Then again My nomenclature could be wrong...(wouldn't be the first time...)....LOL...


Just FYI, the early Suzuki 750 watercooled two-stroke had a Four leading shoe brake (a DLS on each side of the wheel)....THAT would look awesome on your bike!.... Steve

Hey Brown Bomber, Steve and all others:


If you'll go to http://www.crotchrocket.com/pages/home/default.aspx , then go to "OEM Parts" Click on your Brand, use the left side to get the part number and then use the right side (except, don't put the model in, just put the brand and p/n) and it will tell you all the models that that one part was used on. For example. I put in CL450K6 for the model (on the left side) and found that that switch was used on CL350K5, CL200, CB175K7 and CL175K7. Pretty cool tool, don't you think?


Take care, Bill ;)

Steve,
If you could send me a pic, that would be great.

I've heard both Twin leading shoe, and Double leading shoe, and briefly wondered which one to use. I suppose Double leading shoe would be a more accurate term. ;)

I'd like to see that four leading shoe Suzuki you mentioned. Wait :!: With a double leading shoe on each side, wouldn't that make it a Twin Double leading shoe :?: :D

Thanks,
Allen

P.S. I like the Bobber in your avatar.

The "grizzled old fart" standing behind is only 5'7" and 160 pounds, and EXACTY the same age I am..........LMAO!

Now, the "old fart" looks like a Work in Progress! :D


Take care, Bill ;)

Not a problem, I was told about a setup like that by a fellow member over on SOHC4 and now Crotchrocket has converted over to the same basic thing. Pretty col if you need a part and find out that it was used on several applications. Can make it a bit easier to locate, if you have several options. Of course, sometimes, you might find that a certain part was made only for the bike you have and then you have to make a decision.

Take care, Bill ;)

Allen,

In the context of the previous message, I discovered that the CL 360 control unit IS different in that it was designed for "push-pull" throttle cables..... I see no reason the "pull" one cannot be used alone, and the "port" for the "push" cable blocked with a short bolt to seal it from the weather..... The wiring may also include a "shut-off the headlamp" type starter button as well..... Those differences would be easy to wire in, or just ignore....... I'll post pics later today...... Steve

Thanks again,
the link worked for me, and I may go that route, but I just locked in on a CL unit from another resourceful individual over at the msn groups site.

The DLS ;) wheel was shipped today, and the lever assembly on it's way soon. :D The 11" shocks, and 16 tooth sprocket I ordered Monday, arrived today, and the shocks may get installed tonight. Gone are the days when the weather is too nice to resist taking the thing out for a spin, when I should be working on it, so now it's going to get a lot of TLC.

I'll be posting progress in the "Project Logs" section.

Love the camaraderie here.

Allen
