    Even on my old /5 working on the rear brake switch is PITA. I usually just remove the brake pedal before I do anything else. In the end it saves time, not to mention a whole wad of frustration.

    Or, if you ever flew R/C model aircraft you might know it as fuel tank "clunk"; the weight fitted to the end of the fuel line inside the tank to keep in under the fuel level when inverted.

    Because, my '73 R75/5's VIN is 299159. You wrote, "1973 r75/5 short" in your title; being a "later" build than mine, it should be a "long" (wheel base).

    Bill, with regard to the mechanical brakes on these old machines, they do need periodic inspection and maintenance. At 20K, I doubt that the brake shoes have worn down significantly, but the grease...

    Even with only 20,000 miles on the clock, all of your cables, if original, are 41 years old ... replace them. It will be money well spent.

    Just curious, what's your VIN?
