Hi,
I am going to a dual cable throttle and installing the T140ES starter. I need suggestions for RH switch block and therfore a master cylinder. The bike is single standard disc.

I have ordered the Emgo dual cable throttle.

Some people fit switchgear from modern triumphs.
Can’t say if it’s any better

hi steven, i have a twin cable (maybe emgo?) and am using a ktm 990 adventure m/c and an ebay kill switch on my 76 t140 - you can probably get a combined kill/start switch from a dity bike
ktm/brembo m/c works very well - looks the same as the one on my ducati hpermotard
sorry couldn't find how to load a pic - no attachment manager on my page

Steven -

any particular reason for the 2 into 2 setup? 1 into 2 is easier to manage and sync.

You could use the earlier '76-78 T140/TR7 switch block w/MC as it's separate from the throttle.

If you were open to using the single upper throttle cable into the splitter, the 06-5929 Norton MK3-type switch pack would work for this application it seems. We just got the reproductions back in stock, and they come with a single-cable twist-grip.
