Re: Classic for sale

Hi Geoff I fill concerned with your report since I faced a similar situation with my Classic LE043 I took it out yesterday, and it was running fine for about 20 miles. However after a fairly long slow decent, when I opened it up it lost power and seemed to be "chugging". It did get me the ...

Re: Hello to the 588 community

IMG-20210718-WA0004.jpg To John Birchjar and Holger Yes gentlemen, you scare me ! Referring to your posts, I take stock about long storage protocol for a Norton Classic. Sorry to say I find this odd compared to a casual alternate piston motion engine maintenance; aside from crankcase oil draining o...

Re: Hello to the 588 community

Thank you to Interpol2471 for his post. The rev counter failing is the rev counter itself as the capacitors inside dry out and often cause them to fail. Do you know any repair return about the failing cause you point ? I checked on the Norton Classic Wiring Diagram (SECTION HH20) and noticed that th...

I may have a ...

Re: Hello to the 588 community

Thank you very much John for your concern to my questionings. In the meantime, I checked CLASSIC vs IP2 documentations and if it appears that both machines are provided with E.I.U (thank's God smiley ), IP2 is fitted with Idling Retard Unit whereas Classic is not. I wonder why, and why it should be ...

Re: Hello to the 588 community

Thank you John for your concern. In fact the engine has a rev idle @850 - @900. It should be OK so far. New NGK C8E spark plugs (as recommended by Mr. Negus) I may face difficulties to start the engine: When " cold " (even with very mild weather; 25°C - 28°C), I have to put choke on quite ...

Before my acquisition, the motorcycle was overhauled under Mr Negus authority. I am coming quite late to th...
