Gearshift Arm SIP for Vespa
PK50 XL FL/HP/XL2/PK125 N
w/o cable seating
Daily, parts from original manufacturers such as PIAGGIO or OEM are taken out of production. This means there is no other alternative to used parts if you need a missing disk, clip or bracket. Nerve wracking and time consuming at the least, trying to run down those little missing necessary parts.
That's why we decided to produce a number of parts in high quality under the name SIP Spare Parts. Our goal is to get stranded Vespas needing essential small parts back on the road. A major job for small parts ...
The gearshift arm is an essential component of the gearbox. While early 50cc models are operated via two gear cables, later PK50XL/FL/HP/XL2/PK125N/XL2 models use a single wire, which enables a highly precise shifting process and renders the tiresome adjustment of gear cables obsolete.
As V50/PK engines are becoming increasingly rare, smallframe pilots have no choice but to fall back on PK XL2 engines. We decided to produce a new version of the XL2 gearshift arm, using new forms and high quality material, thus guaranteeing a premium spare part with a highly accurate fit. BTW: Not only XL2 pilots benefit from the advantages of a wire operated shifting system. Also high end tuners like BSG are using XL2 parts whenever possible (e.g.: for the BSG CNC casing part no. 24350000). To mount a PK XL2 engine to a V50-125/PV/ET3/PK/S/XL you need a conversion kit (part no. 28678300) which enables you to operate the XL2 engines by means of the two existing bowden cables. In combination with a suitable handlebar (e.g.: PX oder PK XL2) also early 50cc models can benefit from the progressive single wire technology.
SIP-TIP: Order a conversion kit (part no. 28678300) right away and don't forget to use new cables and (barrel) nippels!
Ale Graiani (BSG/et3.it), Italy: "We use the gearshift arm SIP for our CNC casings, because it works very precisely and reliably."
