Welcome to Cambridge Lambretta, make sure you book mark us to come back and see us again. We have been carrying out some small updates to our site, this front page is new. We aim to give you small snippets of information here, so you might be able to find what you are looking for more easily.
Jetting your scooter
We receive so many calls daily about carburettor jetting, it is unreal. We must stress we cannot jet your engine for you over the phone, so please do not call. Cambridge Lambretta have always suggested owners should have their engine timing, and carburettor jetting set up professionally. Should you want to have a go yourself, please read our guides online
We are always asked to price up performance engines, with so many choices its hard to do, so now we have a complete page dedicated to helping you choose what it is YOU want, and what you can expect from it.
Rear Exit Fuel Taps
Please be aware after having a number of complaints about the quality of rear exit fuel taps, we can confirm theses are NOT OUR TAPS. When buying from ebay or other sources please take care. There are a number of fast flow rear exit fuel taps listed on ebay that have come in from India. They are a poor copy, and they are NOT a fast flow tap. Further more, the sealing ring is not petrol resistant and more often then not fails very quickly, taps fall apart and break easily, and the nut splits due to being weak. We have tested the flow rate on these taps back to back with a standard tap, a "normal" fast flow, and our rear exit. It is alarming that these sellers are claiming (or being told) that these are fast flow taps, when quite frankly they struggle to give more flow rate then a standard tap. It further amazes us that companies selling these taps have not carried out this simple test themselves. Shocking to know you are buying parts that the sellers dont even know what the f@~@K they are! We have contacted all UK sellers of these taps as we hold UK design and copyright on a fast flow, rear exit fuel tap We spent many months of design and testing OUR taps, as well as strict suppliers manufacturing designs and processes. Dont be fooled by cheap prices, they are not as they seem.
Once again our friends who brought you the rouge fuel taps that melt and dont flow properly have taken to copying (very badly) our quick slip chain guides.
You will find them all over ebay, so BEWARE dont buy green quick slips from ebay. They are weak, not made from hardened nylon, have much thinner mounting metal for the lower guide, and to date we have had numerous phone calls again complaing to us they break. If you buy SHIT off ebay, phone those people you brought it from, better still dont buy it in the first place!
We have a few Facebook groups for you to have a look and chat to other users.
The shops main Facebook page is where we post all our news, updates and goings on in the shop.
Please be aware when phoning for technical help and advice, our mechanics are fixing customers scooters and time must be devoted to this. Sorry if this sounds rude, but the level of phone calls we recieve is astronomical.
We are of course happy to help as much as we can, so we respectivly ask customers to call us AFTER 3PM shoudl you need help with products purchased from us. Dont forget we have written many help articles, which often answer all those questions we get asked. The technical help pages can be found by clicking here, it will save you and us time to help yourself.
The first batch of Super Monzas have been delivered to our customers, begining in November last year. Supplies of the crank, exhaust modified carbs etc have all followed on and it seems we have some banter and excitement between a few of us to see who is on the road first!
We always get asked this! We suggest all Lambrettas will work on the following guidelines.
Mineral oil 4%
Semi or fully synthetic 3%
A standard tank holds about 7.9 litres, from bone dry to brim. Usually from going onto reserve, to filling up quite soon afterwards takes around 5 litres.
Use the handy oil jug below, which gives a 2% measure, and then simply put in one and a half times the measure on the side.
