What chain ??

Post  Creative Native on Fri May 19, 2017 12:14 pm

Hi
Desperately need some help, I'm on the final stages of a LUI 50C re-build using parts from Rimini Lambretta, who are absolutely useless when it comes to communication Evil or Very Mad

For the last 6 days I've sent countless e-mails to Rimini Lambretta, who have not responded to a single one.

Anyway, in a nutshell the original 50cc engine has been fitted with a Casa 75cc kit (X3), close ratio gear cluster (X168) and a 13 tooth front sprocket (X28).

I was led to believe from the Rimini Lambretta website, that the required chain was a 74 link chain (M141z), which I duly purchased. However, the chain is the same length as the original item fitted to the standard 50cc arrangement and does not fit the mods fitted above.

Can someone please offer advice on the correct chain required?

Speak with 'Patch' at Scooter Surgery. He has done a lot of work converting 50's into 75's.

Spoke to Patch at Scooter Surgery, he is a very knowledgeable chap. In a nutshell, for peace of mind with the 50cc to 75cc conversion, he advised fitting a 75cc crank, which necessitates fitting a different mag housing + much else!!

Patch had most of the necessary components, including the correct length chain, Scooter Restorations supplied the mag housing.

Happy days Very Happy
