Re: clutch cable cover

I have a suction cup with slide hammer for dent removal.
They are not expensive.


I would warm up the cover to soften the oring

Re: Classic's and their owners

I did not get the key fob with any of my Rotary's, some New old stock ones turns up on eBay, I bought 1 for each bike. All were sold.

The Norton logo won't last long if it was used regularly. I can supply high Res photos if someone wants to get some made.

Re: Torque values for screw fittings F 1 Sport

Hi Holga

Richard has complied the list for us of rotary Torque Settings, I have uploaded the excel sheet to the files section of the Norton Rotary Face book page.

I don’t know how to make it available on here.

Re: Commander prices

Hi Richard

Never new Rodger was a rotary owner, I had one of his manly orange beasts, he said it was a ex demo one. It probably prepaid me for my F1. Jota 180 don’t like slow moving traffic especially at night. The alternator dose not charge the battery sufficantly at a low rpm. Below 4K rpm

Hi Holga I have asked one of the prominent Norton engine builders if he could do a list of F1 engine info such as torque settings, sealants and other info.
