It is a common mistake to assume that PTFE cables are completely made from PTFE ? however, this is NOT the case. With these cables, only the small plastic hose running inside the steel wire helix is made from a material that contains a certain share of PTFE. This PTFE share reduces friction of the STANDARD CABLE inside the plastic hose.
This PTFE cable is the ideal choice for conversions to larger carburetors in combination with quickaction twistgrips. The cable cover can thus be run ?more closely? while the cable will still move smoothly. The cables that come with such a PTFE cover do not need any lubrication as grease will only have a negative effect on the self-lubricating character of the PTFE. We also have complete PTFE kits for all classic gear-shifted models in stock. Highly recommended for any rebuild! !
SIP-TiPP: The kit can be used also on a Vespa PX Lusso/Arcobaleno/EFL. Then please add a Brakle cable PX Lusso front to your order to complete it.
