Re: Classic handlebar switches

Tip;
Just saw on the website of "Yambits" that the starter-switch-button can be bought as a separate item. About 9, pounds. Its from a XS750 Yamaha i think. Usefull to know i guess.

WD40

Saw this photo in an old Clubmag of the NOC of Bob Rowley and Dave Fenner standing behind an Interpol 2 being assembled. The photo was from 1987. What i noticed was that Norton then allready used WD40, (a spraycan stood on the bench). I was a car mechanic in those days and can't remember WD40 was ar...

Missing bracket? Classic

When i look at the parts-drawings on the A/N-site, there seems to be a bracket fitted to a Classic that i can't find on my bike. It's number is 31 in the 013-drawing of the valances.
Any idea's what this bracket is for?

Re: brake pistons

Hi John,

Doesn't your Honda have a combined brakesystem? In wich one front disc works on its own, and the other front disc works together with the rearbrake?
That could be the reason i think.
