Are the clutch & brake levers the same for these 2 bikes?

Are the part numbers the same? I recall the Chibi lever being shorter but that's a 45 year old memory.

No, the Chibi parts manual uses a different numbering system and has the levers listed as such...

brake lever - 115-34301-200
clutch lever - 114-34301-200

Need these numbers converted to see if they match the 90/100 levers.

I think I remember reading somewhere about a part number conversion list...  need to do more snooping, but thought someone here might have a quick answer.

The Parts Price manual has the cross references for those parts which have a newer number assigned. The cross reference for the old BS numbers are in the front of the price manual.  The Chibi/Taka/Tora numbers start on Page 36.  If there is a BS part that is the same, the number is shown.  However, those numbers show a substitution of 115-34301-202 and 114-1301-202 respectively , which I think means they were improved/modified at some time, but are not the same as 90/100 levers.  That doesn't necessarily mean the 90/100 levers wouldn't fit, though.  Maybe someone else has experience along those lines.

Hmmm...  just realized this site doesn't have the Rockford Parts Price manual.  Go to Scott's site http://www.bridgestonemotorcycle.com/index2.html  to download it.

Thanks Karl.

Here's what I know so far....

1 - the 50/60/90 & 100's all have the same part numbers for those 2 levers.
2 - the Chibi's used the BS 60 engine

I know this means nothing, but it's the best I got!  ;D  :o  ;D
