Lui 50 cl Throttle set-up

Post  trotsky on Wed Jan 07, 2015 2:33 pm

Hi All, Li Mick has asked me to post a picture of his Lui 50cl throttle set-up. Please see question from Mick below. I'm not sure about Lui's so wondered if anyone can help us Question ...Cheers in advance Steve & Mick.

hi steve,i have a stupid question you may be able to help me out with as this is the first lui i have built,the throttle has a chain drive on it by the handle then the throttle cable is attached to this,it works fine with no problems but on the pictures i have seen i cannot see any with a chain on like mine as i cant find a close up.is this normal,just wondered,thanks,Mick.

Doesn't look original to me, i thought they all had the worm block and throttle tube. Is it one of those quick action throttles with a bit missing exposing the inner workings

hi Thackers,since i have noticed the difference between the throttle set ups i have been taking a closer look and noticed a few more.you are correct about not being able to see the chain drive on others as the small number i have seen seems to have a rubber cover around them.this system works well and is smooth to use with no binding at all.thanks for posting it steve.it would be good to know how many are about.

Hi Steve ................ That's not an original set-up mate although ive never own or worked on a Lui.

Its age related (maybe older) sort of quick action that dosent snap return if that makes sense .......... Ive got a couple fitted to machines

Will work perfectly well and you should be able to get it to return if well greased / oiled cable ect ........ Stretched carb spring Wink

Looks like Micks is missing the protection plate that fits over the linkage unless you have removed to take pics.

I have one of these on my 50CL as well. So it's an aftermarket throttle not original then?

Sorry as mentioned above I have no working experience / knowledge of the Lui model so cant confirm without some research (I doubt il ever get round to owning a Lui so this is unlikely) Wink

May well be original to the model Adam I just assumed they were a 2 wheel after market item and I may have unintentionally misled you .............. Someone will confirm either way (interested myself now)

I've only had 1 lui before and the throttle was the same as the Vega type.
that's a new one on me, I've seen quick action types before, but nothing like that, but if it works then stay with it, as the Vega worm drive type can be temperamental.
