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.
81H Venturer1100 "The Bentley" (on steroids) 97 Yamaha YZ250(age reducer) 92 Honda ST1100 "Twisty"(touring rocket) Age is relative to the number of seconds counted 'airing' out an 85ft. table-top.
