Firstly I make no apologies for not using the impersonal search function...even though the topic came up last week.....
....all these years I have put a "top hat" under the cable at the headset end of the clutch. on vespa Super..and both ends of the outer had tha same size ferrule
Today I received a new clutch outer that has a fatter ferrule at one end (never seen that..maybe its for px or lml150) the top hat wont fit it anyway

can some one post the shematic of the cables etc so I can stick it to the shed wall.

top hat or not on vespa VBC clutch?

it is worth noting that various export specs and various years had different headsets- and some headsets need them and some don't.

this isn't a clear cut "if model = VBC then tophat on clutch = no"

however, if it will fit in the headset all the way to the lever perch that chunky ferrule style later PX cable will work in either situation.
