As per the thread title, does anyone know what this might have been fitted to? Favourite is a Yamaha of some sort, second favourite Kawasaki.

The last photo is of spare filters that came with it.

Many thanks.

I don't know what bike tap is from, but the spare filters are identical to my YDS2 & YDS3 taps so may be from early-mid 1960's.
Good luck!!

Thanks.

Info on the older bikes is pretty sketchy on CMSNL and Partzilla.

I will go look at the YM1 upstairs and see what it has. Would the bottom of the tap screw on, or is it held on by a 6mm screw?

I recall the R5 fuel tap on a lady friend's bike looked vaguely similar.
