Lumenition Optronic chopper disc 23D

PostPost by: englishmaninwales » Sat Jun 01, 2019 11:42 am

Due to my hamfisted handling refitting the engine (why was the dizzy cap not fitted?) I succeeded in breaking a limb off the chopper disc :oops:
Before I part with ££ from Burtons or MiniSpeed for a new chopper, has anyone got one sitting unused and surplus to requirements in their spares box, please?
Thanks

Hi Malcolm

Did you get sorted with this? Noticed in another thread you may have gone for another option.
If not I will shortly be removing the whole Lumenition system from mine as going Aldon igniter into a restored dizzy.
The original is doing a fine job of machining the cap away with the rotor arm!
Surprised it ran at all :?

Thanks Mel, I was after the chopper disc rather than the whole system. In the end I had to get myself a new disc from Burtons. I was hopeful that there might have been a spare secondhand one on here, as the new ones are £21 incl P+P.

I shall be getting the dizzy refurbished this winter.

Glad you got sorted Malcolm.
I will probably put the lumi on the shelf as a back up just in case but if you end up needing any of the bits in future let me know.
