7" T.L.S. Which supplier offers the best

7" T.L.S. Which supplier offers the best

Posted by martin_jones1 at February 20. 2017

Hello. My  norton Electra is in need of a 7" T.L.S. front brake.  As my wrist has been operated on and the grip is alittle on the weak side.

I just want a plain brake, no vents  ,no stiffening plates. etc.

Are they suppliers or just agents. Do they supply the same article.  How does their product vary in design and in construction.

Which in your view is the best plain assembly.

Looking forward to your experiences in T.L.S.

Closing now with kind regards to fellow members.

ps.  I have made a T.L.S. for the rear wheel , works good, ex India £35, post paid.

yes you would have been better with a Commando bowen cable  fitted   or  a hydraulic slave cylinder  that fits in a screw in cable fitting   then you could have kept the short top cam  instead of that long cam arm shaft you made up  that's where it's losing its pulling power

I  am looking for comments from other members who have fitted 7" T.L.S. and from what supplier.

My  6" T.L.S. rear wheel assembly, which is ex India. Is not up for discussion!
