Re: NOC rally

John,

Sorry to hear that you did not make it, I did look out for you and wondered if you were ok.

As you say there will be other rallies.

Re: Torque values for bolting the brake disc to the PVM rim.

According to my workshop manual General Data section last page Brake Disc to Wheel Screws the torque setting is 14 Lb/Ft 2.0 Kg/m.

The type of loctite grade is not listed however it could be 648 High temperature retention, it will be your choice.

Re: tank vacum pipe

I think but cant be sure that the vacuum operated fuel taps on the Commanders is from Yamaha, note that it has a reserve position. I have not had any issues with ethanol having owned my bike for many years. I have previously changed the vacuum pipe, ANL had and might still have them in stock. You ca...

Re: Commander handlebars

As everything else on the front end is Yamaha I would guess that the original bars are also Yamaha.

Re: Commander driving lights

Re: Oil for Norton rotary

Dean, In my line of work we only mix oil types if the manufacturers advise if the oils are fully miscible. In our vessels main gearboxes we use a synthetic oil, which we know is not miscible with a mineral oil, so I would suggest your current oil and the Silkolene is the same. As there is little oil...

Philip, One of the excellent features of a Commander is the enclosed rear chain allowing the chain to be lubricated with 20/50 mulitgrade oil, the enclosed rear chain comprises, amongst other components, two gaiters one top and one bottom, sometimes the gaiters will fail so it is always very useful ...

Re: indicator relay

John,

It may not be a straight forward as a simple relay, modern cars use can bus systems, my advice would be to seek professional advice from either the dealer or a good auto electrician.
