First the front brakes need work, I've sourced a new MC from Mikes, as well as new pads, steel braid hoses, and rebuild kits from other sources. New pistons from HVC are on order too. I want to replace the o-ring in the caliper mounting bolt assy, anyone know what size it is?

All the petcock rebuild kits I see are missing the drain plug screw sealing washers. Anyone know what size that one is? My 1980 Cymer manual does not give the exact size.

Thanks in advance. I'm also looking for a Special fork brace (I've posted in looking for parts too)

78E is Standard only for that yr.
79F is Standard only
79SF is Special only
80G is Standard only
80SG is Special only
81H is Standard(Venturer) only
81SH is Special only
Then you also got 80-81 Midnite Specials(MNS).

As for the fuel bowl drain gasket, take that drain plug with you to a parts store and find either a fiber or copper washer for sealing....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.
