Norton TRRL on ebay

And hey another rotary on eBay! It never rains... but three rotaries in as many days? This one looks like the genuine IP2 that went to TRRL for safety additions. Not a bad price either and looks virtually new. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Norton-Interpol-2-Motorcycle-Rotary-Engine-/222474917105?hash=it...

Surface discharge spark plugs

My IP2 is running a bit rough. I have replaced the race exhaust with a nice quiet standard pair of pipes, which makes for a more pleasant ride but it is not as smooth as I expected a rotary to be. Actually it wasn’t all that brilliant with the race exhaust, when it only went well under a hard thrott...

Re: IP2 new owner with race exhaust

Although it is based on the racer exhaust, and mine does have the extractor stub, it is blanked off and not connected, so as far as I can see, it is effectively just a 2 into 1 system running on a standard air-cooled engine with the normal air flow. I think the bike was fairly well known in the foru...

Re: Insurance

Unfortunately, I think that whoever you insure with it turns out to be the same old story of them getting your money quick followed by pretty poor service when you actually need it. I left Carole Nash (after being with her from when she started out) when my premium rocketed without any particular re...

Re: IP2 new owner with race exhaust

Hi Ned Actually it does look like it is based on the extractor system used by the factory racer. From the exhaust ports the pipes loop forward into a sort of double oval and into a collector box under the engine which then has a larger single pipe out of the back and into a huge 'silencer'. It's all...

IP2 new owner with race exhaust

Hello all. I recently bought an IP2 having searched for a Norton rotary for ages and finally acquired this one. It’s been mildly café-raced from its police spec by the previous owner, but I’m going to change the styling again to my own taste. One of the first things I need to sort is the race-spec e...
