D. Domino “70’s chrome” housings and controls

 

This D controls family has
1) threadless-bottomed brake cable holes
2) threadless-bottomed start cable hole
3) threadless-bottomed throttle cable hole

 

“70’s chrome” means the brake levers appear to be chrome. The 60’s ones are chrome-plated steel, but the 70’s levers are actually polished stainless steel, like silverware. They are stamped (formed) from sheet metal.

DA DB  These had plain silver housings, no throttle assist spring and no balls on the tips of the levers.

D18 $20-00  L housing plain silver MMI#D18
D20a $25-00  L or R lever bare, no ball

substitute V5

substitute V5g

The V5 silver and V5g dark gray housings are exact replacements for D5. There are only two differences.

1) the brake cable hole is threaded-bottomless instead of bottomed-threadless. That means a 6mm adjuster must be added to the brake cable. That’s easy.

2) there is a small threaded hole on the bottom side for mounting a thumb button. It is unnoticeable.

substitute V5Dg

housing D18b

DA2 DB2  These 1978-later throttles worked better thanks to the silver-dollar-sized throttle assist spring. The housing was longer, and the metal twist tube had more “inner” length  where the three-loop throttle assist spring goes. All subsequent Domino sliding block throttles had the throttle return assist spring.

housing D18db

DA3 DB3  From 1978-85 some US mopeds had Domino chrome levers with a diamond shaped mount for an integrated CEV switch. Everything was the same except the black housings had molded in switch mounts. 

The V5d and V5dg housings are exact replacements for D5d. The only difference is the brake cable hole is threaded-bottomless instead of bottomed-threadless. That means a 6mm adjuster must be added to the brake cable. That’s easy.

DA3m DB3m These controls were on ’84 Garelli Basic, ’83-84 Monza GT, and perhaps others. They have longer levers (155 instead of 140), longer grips (120 instead of 100) and diamond shaped mounts molded into the black housing for integrated CEV switches.

The DB3m left control has an M6 thread start cable adjuster, unlike all others in this family

V. Domino “70’s – 80’s Vespa” housings and controls

 

This V controls family has
1) threaded-bottomless brake cable holes
2) threadless-bottomed start cable hole
3) threadless-bottomed throttle cable hole

 

The right control (throttle and front brake) is a sliding block type, where the twist tube (barrel) has a spiral slot that moves a sliding block back and forth. The sliding block also contains a pinch bolt to attach the cable wire. So the throttle inner cable is a single-ended type that can slide out and be replaced separately. The left control has a “one finger” decompression lever instead of a “three finger” start lever, like most other left controls have. It does not need to be squeezed hard like the clutch start levers do. The engine starts when the decomp lever is released.

Abbreviations:   /B = blinker version    

 


vA vB vAd  These are on the earliest Ciao’s 1968-71. They have plain levers with no balls on the end, chrome plated steel not stainless steel. The throttle has no assist spring. The housings are silver and do not have threaded holes for brake light switches. That is what the lower case v means.

The right control housing does not have a lower mount for a “kill” button. The engine was stopped by pulling the decomp lever on the left control. Grips were gray 114220 R, 114221 L, except Ciao Lusso and later were black 122184 R, 122185 L.


housing V5

housing V18

VA VB  These are on early Ciao’s 1972-75. The tips of the brake levers did not have balls. The right control housing has a kill switch mount on the bottom, but not a throttle return assist spring. It is reachable by the right thumb without removing the hand from the handlebar, as required by 1973 US safety laws. The engine was stopped by pushing the kill button. The housings are silver and have threaded holes for brake light switches.

housing V5dg

housing V18dg

VAdg VBdg  Starting with this 1977 Bravo with blinkers, and then on all 1978 and later models, the right controls had throttle helper springs. The twist tube changed from D6 to D6A. The main throttle return spring in the carburetor is strong enough by itself, except when the cable is sticky or kinked or the handlebar is rubbing on the twist tube.

Diamond shape integrated switches on both sides, reachable by thumbs. This was a safety requirement in some countries.

 


housing V5ag

housing V18g

VA2g VB1g  These have plain gray housings. The right control has a throttle helper spring, just left of the grip. Compared to VK1g above, there is visible about 6mm more length in both the housing and the twist tube, to make room for the 3-loop torsion spring. 

The right control housing has a kill switch mount on the bottom, but it was not used on US models. Instead the kill switch was a separate clamp-on type, CEV round chrome, like the left side switch.

The V5,V5g and V18 housings are exact replacements for G5 and G18. There are only two differences.

1) the brake cable hole is threaded-bottomless instead of bottomed-threadless. That means a 6mm adjuster must be added to the brake cable. That’s easy.

2) on the V5 and V5g there is a small threaded hole on the bottom side for mounting a thumb button. It is unnoticeable.

substitute V5g

The V5 silver and V5g dark gray housings are exact replacements for G5. There are only two differences.

1) the brake cable hole is threaded-bottomless instead of bottomed-threadless. That means a 6mm adjuster must be added to the brake cable. That’s easy.

2) there is a small threaded hole on the bottom side for mounting a thumb button. It is unnoticeable.

E. Domino “80’s chrome” housings and controls

 

This E controls family has
1) threaded-bottomless brake cable holes
2) threaded-bottomless start cable hole
3) threaded-bottomless throttle cable hole

 

Since the early 1980’s, Domino controls have all cable holes threaded for cable adjusters (adjustable cable stops). 

 


EA2 EB2  This early 1980’s Domino EA2 black plain right control is like a late 1970’s Domino DA2 black plain right control, except for two things. 1) The grip is a D21b “basketball texture”, not a D21 “ribbed”. 2) Both the throttle and brake cables have threaded adjusters, M5 and M6.

2. Ci.Te. Controls

Ci.Te. is an Italian moped lever used on 1960’s and early 1970’s Italian mopeds. They are similar to 1970’s Domino levers. You can see that in the side-by-side comparisons below. Domino blades have the D9 special stepped tube 6mm ID, that snaps into the 8mm pivot hole, to spread out the load over a large area. Ci.Te. levers are more primitive in that the blades rub on the pivot bolt in just two places, and so the pivot bolt gets cut by the sharp edge of the folded sheet metal.  Domino levers also have assist springs, but Ci.Te. levers do not. Ci.Te. controls have no facility for mounting brake light switches. Ci.Te. lever blades do not have balls on the end. These last two things are required on USA mopeds. So therefore Ci.Te. levers are rare in the USA. Out of almost 1000 moped levers, new and used, mostly Magura and Domino, there was only one Ci.Te. lever blade. That is how rare they are in Southern California 1970’s -1990’s 20 moped shops leftover parts inventories plus 100’s of local mopeds turned into parts.

3. OSL Controls

O.S.L. levers are heavy duty and high quality Italian controls, used on some mid to late 1980’s US model mopeds including Safari, Benvenuti, and Cosmo (Colt). They look like Domino, except for the kink in the middle of the lever. Myrons does not have any OSL controls or levers for sale. They were (almost) never on any mopeds sold in California. Out of a thousand moped levers at MM, this is the only OSL sample.

4. P.V. Controls

P.V. is an Italian moped lever, used on Benelli, Guzzi, Intramotor Gloria, Testi, Rizzato and other Italian mopeds. None of the parts interchange with Domino. The lever blades are all black plastic, as are the throttle twist tubes. The housings are cast aluminum. The housings break easily when the bike falls over. Instead of a pivot bolt they have a press-in 6mm roll pin.

6. General Controls

1979-85 General (made in Taiwan by Jui Li) and it’s clones Grycner, Clinton, Jui Li and others use the same brake levers as 1977-83 Honda Express. The brake lever housings are integrated with the electrical switches, all in one unit.

 

 

 

Taiwan moped start levers:
1. Early type, separate mount, clamp breaks (1977 Lazer)
2. Clutch type, control mount, thick metal lever (General)
3. Decomp type, control mount, thin plastic lever (Indian)

1977 Lazer Sport 50

1977 Lazer Sport 50

1977 Lazer (made in Taiwan by Jui Li) uses the same brake levers as 1967-68 Honda CT90. The brake lever housings are separate from the electrical switch housing. The electrical buttons are near the riders thumbs. The brake levers are about 1.5 inch longer, because the lever housings (perches) are 1.5 inch further inward on the handlebar.

Lazer levers break easy, because they are only 6mm wide at the pivot. Most other vintage Japanese small motorcycle hand levers are 8mm wide at the pivot.

9. Derbi Controls

Derbi brake levers $21 each

Pre-1987 Derbi mopeds had their own brake levers, made by Derbi, and throttles and grips made by Ideale. From 1987-90 they had Domino Italian made controls.

Brake Levers

The brake lever mounts were welded to the handlebar. So there is no changing controls without changing handlebars or grinding off the original lever perches/housings. Changing handlebars is difficult because the original Derbi handlebars also do not interchange with the rest of the world, because they have special mounts welded onto them.

Pre-1980 had black plastic brake levers, and post-1980 had black metal ones. The aftermarket metal brake levers, made by Vmotoparts, replace both the 70’s plastic and the 80’s metal levers.

 

Decompression Lever

The original black plastic 1976-1986 Derbi Rabasa decomp levers are scarce or not available. However there is a pretty good substitute available. A late 1980’s Domino choke lever, like on the later 86-89 Derbi Variant Sport, can be modified to fit an earlier Derbi.

The substitute Derbi decomp lever can be ordered for $12 plus $5 for the modification.

Compared to a universal small clamp-on lever, the benefits of the Domino choke modified lever are:

1. No need to modify the original cable. (With a BMX bicycle lever, the sleeve stop hole is wider. The cable must be cut to insert a wider stop piece. But then the inner wire must be replaced to get the length lost by cutting back, and then a small 5 x 8mm pinch bolt soldered on properly. More difficult.)

2. No need to grind off the welded-on mount. No interference with the lights/horn switch.

3. Goes in the original position, looks proper. The word “choke” wipes off with carb spray solvent.

These are the universal throttles and levers:

Magura was founded in 1893 by inventor Gustav Magenwirth as a manufacturer of gasoline motors, hydraulic press pumps and water pressure devices. Since 1923 in Bad Urach, Germany, they have produced handlebars and handlebar controls for mopeds and motorcycles. They are an industry leader, and still produce handlebar controls for all major makes. Since the 1970s, the company has also made many products for the bicycle industry. The name Magura is from Magenwirth and Urach. The logo is from a rotary rack developed in 1930.

Magura levers late and early

Left 80’s, right 70’s

Wrap-around and Slide-type: There are two main types, wrap around where the throttle cable wire wraps around and attaches to the twist tube, and slide type where the throttle cable attaches to a block that slides in a spiral slot in the twist tube.

70’s and 80’s: It is a subtle difference, but side by side you can see there are two different folded aluminum original Magura levers. The 1980’s “late” right lever, on the left, is longer and straighter than the 1970’s “early” left lever, on the right. When they are not side by side, it is really hard to notice.

All of these levers interchange and are 12mm wide at the pivot.
Original levers have a 6 mm top hole and a 5 mm bottom hole.
Some bottoms are the same as tops, others have a cable slot.
Flipping (using a right lever on the left side or visa versa):
Right and left interchange when flipped (bottom becomes top).
If the lever is flipped the pivot bolt must also be flipped, unless
the 5 hole is drilled to 6 and the 6/5 pivot bolt changed to 6/6.

Magura “Open Wrap Around” silver controls are used on 1950’s and 1960’s Puch, Tomos, Sears Allstate, and many others. Some are cast aluminum levers, and some are folded sheet aluminum.

Most of these did not have threaded holes for brake light switches.

Ball-end levers began in the 1970’s, for safety.

Magura “Open Wrap Around” black controls were on 1980’s Euro models, but not on US models.

Like the other Magura wrap around throttle controls, the twist tube has a groove that locks onto a tab in the housing. The two are locked together first, then slid onto the handlebar. Once on the handlebar they cannot become separated.

These have a plain hole with bottom, for the brake cable. Most do not have a hole for the a brake light switch.

 

 

 


Peugeot or Not Peugeot: There are two ways to stop the brake cables. The Peugeot way is to have 6mm threaded bottomless holes in the housings with 6mm adjusters stopping the cables. The non-Peugeot way is to have the housings stop the cables (or the inline Magura-type adjuster) with a slotted recess (hole with a bottom) instead of threads. You can convert to Peugeot style by drilling and tapping to M6-1.0 thread. But there is almost no adjustment range (because most of the hole is already too big, 7mm).

Magura “Wrap Around” silver controls are used on 1970’s Batavus, Colombia, Flandria, Foxi, Flying Dutchman, Hercules, JC Penney, Kreidler, KTM, Kynast, Murray, Odyssey, Puch, Sachs, Sears, Sparta, 74-85 Tomos, and others. These US models all had threaded holes for brake light switches. Most Euro and Canada models did not have brake light switch holes. 

The brake cable holes on both sides have two versions, M6 threaded bottomless (Peugeot style), or 7mm plain hole with bottom (non-Peugeot style). 

These controls on US models all had ball-end levers except for Sears Free Spirit.

Magura “Late Wrap Around” silver controls are used on 1980’s Colombia, Hercules, Murray, Puch, Sachs, 79-83 Trac, and others. The housings are thicker and less rounded. The left has a mirror hole. US models had threaded holes for brake light switches. But most Euro and Canada models did not have brake light switch holes. In these photos you cannot tell if there are brake switch holes or not.

The brake cable holes on both sides have two versions, M6 threaded bottomless (Peugeot style), or 7mm plain hole with bottom (non-Peugeot style).

Puch-Magura “Sliding Block” black, used on 78-86 Puch deluxe models. 

Most of these are the early, common kind with a screw on the slider holding holding the cable wire. The cable wire itself has no upper end piece. It  takes a “universal” or “single ended” throttle cable.

Some of these are the late, uncommon kind with no screw on the slider. Instead the cable wire has an upper end piece 3mm “inline barrel” soldered onto it. The cable is specific to that set-up, and is “double ended”.

The brake cable holes are 7mm plain with bottoms.

Service Information

The tongue and groove lock together, but only when they are off the handlebar.

Magura Wrap-Around Throttle

As mentioned above, the pieces snap together, but only when removed from the handlebar.

Twist tube: The throttle housing has a tongue that goes into a groove in the twist tube. The two pieces are first locked together while off the handlebar, and then slid on as a unit. Then the twist tube is kept from moving sideways. 

Thumb trigger: Not all mopeds have this, but all the wrap-around housings have a provision for it. This is also called a choke lever or a decomp lever. The trigger has half-circle-shaped posts that slide into slots in the throttle housing, but only when off the handlebar, and in the “squeezed past max” position. Once on, the handlebar prevents it from detaching.

Tomos A3 auto choke thumb button: This button, when pushed in, lets the throttle cable go all the way slack for cold starting.  When it is not pushed in, it allows the cable to stay a little taut for normal idling. Idle speed is adjusted by the tightness of the throttle cable, at the handlebar by the Magura type cable adjuster.

Installing a throttle cable on a Magura wrap around type throttle

Installing a throttle cable on a Magura wrap around throttle

 

Installing a throttle cable: With an original Magura twist tube, the cable installs from the outer side, just behind the grip. Turn the grip forward to the closed position. Locate where the cable end is. Peel the flange of the grip there back with your thumb, and hold it there. With the other hand, place the sideways barrel end of the throttle cable into the cavity. Lay the wire over the ridge, and wrap it around the curved guide. When pulled taut it should fall into it’s groove. The throttle should pull the wire and move free.

With a Magura-clone twist tube, the cable installs from the inner side. So the twist tube has to be removed. That means the whole throttle has to be removed from the handlebar. But the cable is more protected.

Restoring a worn groove

Restoring a worn groove

 

Restoring a damaged groove: The curved cable guide groove can become worn in the middle. It can be so bad that the throttle feels like a hack saw, the way it makes a ripping sound, has a rough feel, and sticks sometimes. It cuts through cables. The cause of the worn groove is lack of lubrication. Moped cables and controls need oil occasionally.

The remedy is to re-cut the bottom of the curved guide. The best tool is a masonry hack saw blade. It has the exact width and round shape. The linear saw is moved in a curved motion. The bottom of the channel is visually checked every few strokes, to see what areas need more cutting.

 

Magura throttle brake and choke cable exposed lengths

Tri-Flow lubricant

 

Lubrication: Lube the cables and controls with a drip oil, like 3-in-1 or Tri Flow or any high tech lubricant. Tri Flow is thin so it penetrates in and clings to metal, like WD40. But after awhile when most of the liquid drys up, it leaves behind microscopic Teflon particles embedded in the metal surface.   

Making custom cables: Here are the distances of the exposed cable wires, for Magura wrap-around type moped controls.
