Top quality, made by SIP. Lambretta gear and clutch cable nipples with a 4mm Allen grub screw and collar enabling fuss-free attachment.
Every Lambretta rider and mechanic knows the problem: the small Allen locking screws for the gear control cables are quickly worn or already completely rounded, making their instalment fiddly and time-consuming.
Even if the commonly available cable nipples are as new and all the correct tools are present, their mounting is not an easy job. They first require positioning in the opening on the gear swivel, then the operating cable has to be threaded through the tiny eyelet. This can become especially challenging as the area is not easily accessible and the nipple often falls through the opening before the cable can be pushed through.
The clamping screws for the cables have an internal plate as in the original. This protects the inner cable and ensures a long life and reliability.
They are equipped with a fixing screw that requires a 4mm Allen key, the increase in size making it more durable against wear and mechanical abuse. Its outer dimensions have also grown to now be held in place with a 10mm spanner.
The upper edge of the nipple has been provided with a positioning collar, designed to rest on the perimeter of the opening on the rocker lever. This effectively prevents the cable nipples from slipping through the rocker lever openings during mounting, which helps keep you smiling during the job!
The main body of the SIP Lambretta cable nipple has an outer diameter of exactly 10mm, ensuring a tight, solid fit in the gear and the clutch arm.
