Batavus Cables

1970’s Batavus mopeds use 1970’s Magura controls. The left side is the rear brake and start lever. The right side is the front brake, throttle, and choke trigger. The brake cables connect to the levers with little adaptor pieces called socket bolts or cable anchors.

For Batavus cables, there are five model-categories:

a. 1976-78 HS50 and Mobat
M48 engine, bottom carb

b. 1974-80 VA, Starflite VA, HS

c. 1976-78 Batavus Bronco

Batavus throttle cable 41-248

41-248 and 41-405: These are very long throttle cables, for a moped, because the carburetor is below and behind the motor. They have a short Magura adjuster on top.

Substitute: The substitute cable has a different style of Magura adjuster at the top end.

 

 

Batavus choke cable 41-246

 

41-246 and 41-406: There is no adjuster on the choke cable. Instead there is a rubber boot (not shown) that keeps water and dirt from getting in.

 

 

 

Batavus start cable 41-247

41-247 and 41-409: These start cables are single ended, where the wire slides out, so the 5-8 step ferrule, and the Magura short adjuster are shown and sold separately. The upper inner wire end is held with a pinch bolt built into the black plastic Magura start lever. The adjuster is optional, since it is easy to adjust from the pinch screw.

 

 

Batavus front brake cable 41-250

41-250 and 41-407: These front brake cables have a 6mm 10-hex type adjuster on the bottom end, and a short Magura type adjuster on the top. The second adjuster on top is a convenience, so you can adjust it while riding.

Substitute: The substitute cable has no Magura adjuster at the top end.

 

 

Batavus rear brake cable 41-249

41-249 and 41-408: These rear brake cables have a 6mm 10-hex type adjuster on the bottom end, and a short Magura type adjuster on the top. The second adjuster on top is a convenience, so you can adjust it while riding.

Substitute: The substitute cable has no Magura adjuster at the top end.

 

 

batavus-regency-with-mags-front-brake-cable

Batavus front brake cable 41-397

41-397 and 41-398: These brake cables for mag wheel models have a “Ø6 pear” or “mushroom” on both ends, a 6mm 10-hex type bottom adjuster, and a short Magura type top adjuster. The top adjuster is a convenience, so you can adjust it while riding.

Substitute:  The substitute cable has no Magura adjuster. It has a similar but generic 6mm adjuster on the bottom end, at the wheel.

 

Batavus M56 throttle cable 41-434

41-434: It has a short Magura type adjuster on top.

Substitute: The 1981-84 Trac throttle cable is the substitute. It has a slightly different style of Magura adjuster. 

 

 

Batavus Regency choke cable

Batavus choke cable 41-286

41-286: This is a single ended cable. First the inner wire slides though a small brass choke plunger. Then a set screw holds it from the bottom end. Two tiny rubber o-rings go into grooves in the choke plunger. See Encarwi carburetors for that. At the top end, a 5 x 7mm pinch bolt, shown and sold separately, goes into a plastic thumb trigger in the right control.
