My parking brake on the fuoco has always been abit sticky ever since i bought the bike 4 yrs ago ( i think) anyway i have managed to live with it's inconsistant workings but it's getting worse so in lockdown i have been doing jobs on the fuoco for when i can safely ride. Yesterday i detached the cable at the caliper and have been trying to get maintainance spray and very thin oil down the cable with not alot of sucess. I removed the ferrull on the cable end to see if the outer cable was nylon lined IT'S NOT, also the inner cable is standard stranded wire. So i've looked at Fowlers in Bristol UK and the part number is listed as 648931 this number replaced 651392 so piaggio must have made something different and i'm wondering if there now nylon lined and possibly are 7x7 stranded wire.
So my question is does anyone know if the new part number is a nylon lined one and is the wire 7x7.
I 'm thinking that if the new 648931 is not nylon lined i'd just make a new nylon lined one with 7x7 stranded wire and make all new fittings at the caliper end with stainless . I did consider cutting a access panel out around the lever to save the pita of removing the panels but because of the 2 frame tubes i don't think this is on.
