Hi all. I’m new here so I hope I’ve got the right thread. My T140V came with a after market master cyl and front brake assembly. No front brake light switch. There were also no factory control switches for headlight, turn signals etc.
I’ve acquired the correct master cyl/front brake assembly. Is there a clamp available to affix to the handlebars other than getting a set of controls to complete the mount? Thanks in advance.

B, i have a 76 T140v but i don't understand your question, my stock setup has the clamp cast with the m/c and the elect. controls also.

Mine is definitely not stock. I’ll post better pics later to help describe my question. But here’s one of the aftermarket mstr cyl. Thanks for the response.

Sorry for the delay. But here is my situation. Aftermarket front master cyl front brake controls. See photo. I want to install the proper triumph master cyl unit. Since my T140V doesn’t have the factory controls which act as the rear clamp to the master cyl unit, is there a aftermarket clamp available out there somehere?

You may have to try to find a used factory unit to buy and get the parts from it. Try advertising in the Trade, wanted section under forums. It may help to use your pictures too.

Thank you for your response. Makes sense.

Can you post a pic of your handlebar set up?

Perfect thanks! Now what I need to find is the cover that has the black and red switch. This is what my master cyl unit screws into. I currently don’t have a front brake switch. Don’t necessarily have aspirations to add one but if it works out to add one then ok. Ideally would like to find the “switch piece” that’s junk to someone. Just to use to mount the new cyl and brake assembly.

As you can see by that post, I'm a bit rusty on my posting skills. I just replaced my rear brake master cylinder and reservoir. It was totally stuffed. Apparently the mc on these models are well known for it. It was about $300/350 to buy new and I have ordered the front one too, getting here by Friday. I also refurbed the callipers. All those parts are available here in Oz. Mine is a 1076 Bonneville with matching numbers

Mine will be redundant once I get the new piece but I'm a effing long way from you.

Oz? Yep I’m just a jump away. Central Illinois in the states. I know what I need. Just need to find it. The set up I have now works just want to use the correct master cyl. Mines. 76 T140 also. Set up to look like a 70 tho. Thanks for helping.
