This is the correct front brake cable for the US-market 1968 Triumph TR6C, TR6R, and T120R models equipped with the first-generation 8″ twin-leading shoe brake drum.
This economically priced cable is specified for the 1968 Triumph 650 models with the 8″ twin-leading shoe front brake drum. The overall length measures 57-3/4″, with a sheath length of 50-1/4″, and 6-3/4″ of inner wire free length. Quality construction from Emgo.
The first iteration of the Triumph and BSA 8″ TLS brake plate had the cable abutment cast horizontally into the bottom of the brake plate, allowing the brake cable inner wire and clevis to directly fit onto the brake operating arm. This design was only specified for the 1968 models, due to a revised design for the 1969-later models which used a new brake cam lever-operated linkage with a vertical cable abutment cast into the brake plate. This brake cable is not compatible with the 1969-1970 front brake plate.
The cable is connected to the handlebar control lever with the barrel end of the cable located in the lever, while the clevis at the lower end of the cable is attached to the brake operating arm with a pin. Once fitted, fine adjustments can be made with the inline barrel adjuster and locknut.
