Post subject:  Brake return springs 77 Super Pioneer


I bought a set of EBC 990G brake shoes for my 1977 Ossa Super Pioneer from a UK seller through eBay.

The shoes arrived without return springs. EBC tech support claim these shoes are provided without springs.

The springs from the bike are too short for the EBC 990G shoes. The EBC 990G shoes fit the brake backing plate and have 150mm outer diameter.

The return spring length would need to be about 66mm.

The shoes on the bike front wheel are stamped “Suzuki ASK A11G” and might fit the RM250. They do not seem to be a perfect fit to the motorcycle.

Are there any known sources for return springs to fit the EBC shoes?

I’ve looked on line and visited a NAPA parts store with brake shoes in hand to no avail.

Thank you for any help,
Ben T.
