NEW Casa Performance Lambretta front sprockets | NEWS
Despite the whole of Italy being on summer shut-down, the bods at Rimini Lambretta Centre are still keeping their R&D machine in total overdrive, with a seemingly non-stop tidal wave of new products being released.
They have just added some more previously unavailable front sprockets (for both large frame and smallframe Lambrettas) to their Casa Performance range. With the imminent release of the ‘Vega5’ 5-speed gearboxes for Lambretta J Range and Luna Line machines later this week, Casa Performance have just released three more front sprockets.
The taller 5th gear ratios of the new ‘Vega5’ 5-speed gearboxes mean that if used in standard 75cc engines, primary drive front sprockets need to be smaller than standard sizes (i.e. 13T on Lui , Vega and Cometa 75cc models). To that end, Casa Performance have now manufactured 11T and 12T for 4-speed casings and whilst they were at it, they also made 12T sprockets for 3-speed casings as well.
This effectively means that smallframe Lambretta owners now have a huge, unprecedented choice of sprockets to choose from for both 3-speed and 4-speed engine casings (these use different drive side bearing and sprocket/sleeve set-ups) ranging from 11T, through to 16T, for both non-cushdrive and cushdrive set-ups. Coupled with the Casa Performance ‘LunaMaster’ 5-plate clutches in 45T, 46T and 47T crownwheel options, your gearing ratio choices are pretty much covered. The lads also have top quality Iwis chains for all the possible combinations.
For Largeframe Lambretta models, Casa Performance have now manufactured both 22T and 23T front drive sprockets. To date, most front sprockets went up to ‘just’ 21T but with the advent of torque-monster engines, such as their own ‘SST265 Touring’ and the ‘Gran Turismo 300’ motors, even bigger front sprockets were needed. With these new sprockets, even the most torquey of engine set-ups is catered for.
All these sprockets are available directly from Rimini Lambretta Centre, or they can be ordered from any Casa Performance dealer. Details, prices and more info can be seen HERE
Gearbox visualiser update
Whilst on the subject of gearing, anyone who has ever needed to work out their gearing set-ups will know that Tony Cassidy’s on-line gearbox visualizer is an invaluable tool for working out gear ratios and possible combinations. Tony has recently updated his visualiser and put it up on his all-new website: Lambretta Gearbox.
The lads at RLC/Casa Performance have been working with Tony to provide him with info regarding both the original Innocenti smallframe gearboxes and everything they have produced to date, including info on the ‘Vega5’ gearbox and all the ‘Cyclone 5 Pro’ ratio info as well. Due to the sheer quantity of information, Tony has also separated the visualizer and there are now specific tables for both Smallframe and Largeframe Lambrettas.
