Thanks for the tip on Shark Hyde !

Also when putting air in the front forks I've always played around with a compressor until I thought I had them where I wanted and both the same.
Is there an easy way to pump them up equal ?
Answer to first question: Maxim Phil had it correct, Bridgestone. Least that's what came on my Venturer when I purchased it new May 1981.
Although, at that time, they were conventional size not 90 series, and are no longer available.
Answer to last question: Install a 't' Schrader valve between the two existing Schrader valves on forks......easy peasy.
