Re: Cast Iron Discs

I have the same problem with my Hinckley Trident, if I put it away with wet disks they tend to have locked up by the next time I get the bike out the garage...

I find a good well placed whack with a rubber mallet on the caliper frees them up no problem Very Happy

Re: Cerakote

I had my Norton silencers ceramic coated by Camcoat at Warrington about a year ago... still looking good and cheaper than buying replacements.

Re: interpol voltage regulator

Hi John

When I replaced my Voltage Regulator I also fitted a little white box from these guys which powers up a red light as an ignition warning ....

It works a treat and I've fitted one to a few of my bikes ...

Re: Norton Silencers

Hi JohnThe cost was £170 + VAT for both silencers and £36 to have them picked up and returned by TNT.They had to have the CAM 2 coating because the surface was badly corroded, silencers in better condition might only need CAM 1 coating which brings the price down considerably.Take a look at their we...

Norton Silencers

Got the Rotary silencers back on the bike today. They have been off at an outfit called Camcoat, specialists in ceramic coating. Not cheap, but less than half the price of having to replace them and the finish is good up to 1000 degrees C, so should work on the Rotary...The top photo shows the state...

Hi NedI'm about to start doing the same on my IP2/Commander bitza......cannot answer your specific questions, but if you're after back to basics wiring take a look at a circuit diagram for a MK3 Commando or T160 Trident.They have a lot of the circuits you will need for starter, charging, lights, ind...
