A technical forum for all modern Nortons made since 2009 in Donington.
My Dad has an issue with starting his 961, the bike turns over quite well considering its quite cold and this is usually an issue with both our 961's, anyway i digress once it starts it only runs for seconds and then stops. At ignition on we hear the pump run up and we can smell that there is some fuel getting through. Just wondered if anyone had come across this issue before, i can see possibly that it will have to be interogated via a computer at Norton or a dealer.
Any suggestions would be welcomed.
I see the crowdfunding effort seems to have been stopped?
Is it because of the pension fund issue?
There seems to be a lot of bad publicity around undelivered bikes lately
Does anyone know if it possible to use one on a mk1 as bobbins etc are only available for mk2s. I only have this bike as I,ve been told never to kick my 850 mk 3 again after surgeon removed my bladder , prostate and lymph nodes etc. And yes I will get the starter on the mk 3 working. Many hours and trials. Almost there! But in the meantime as the 961 has no centre stand ?? . Thanks, Roy Jack.
The Norton street is back from the dealers yet again. It is much improved after being remapped and seems to run fine. The front fork reflector that fell off is on order so everything is rosy!!!!!
i am holding my breath for the next issue, not good after spending nearly£18k. What’s happening at Norton?
The saga continues,
the 961 street has returned from the dealers after nearly 3 weeks, guess what. The first ride out and the problem remains. It ran fairly roughly until warm and then wouldn’t slow down until a prompt from the brakes . At the first stop after 25miles it wouldn’t tick over at anything less than 3000rpm. Turn the ignition off, start the bike up and it ran perfectly well for the rest of the run!!!!
Back to the dealers I guess.
hi all ,
i am lucky to own a 961 street or am I!!!
it will go back under warranty but just wondered if anyone else is suffering from fuelling problems.
My street seems to lack throttle response and sometimes refuses to tick over anything less than 2000rpm. The throttle sometimes doesn’t shut down without a prompt from the brakes. The whole thing is noisy, has anyone put the standard pipes back on to quieten the exhaust down as I find the sound quite harsh?
“ KRAZY HORSE “ in Bury St Edmunds ,Suffolk was a good venue last year & resulted in for a good turnout, it’s gotta be within a few hours of quite a few of us ,a bike venue has gotta be a reasonable fun ride to get there,something when u get there to wanna see & likeminded enthusiasts to have natter with,look round the store of exotic bikes & of course a successful cafe meet point for any Biker/ Motorcyclists So I do believe that this site at “ Krazy Horse “ ticks the boxes. Date wise let’s see I propose a Saturday 20th July or Saturday 27th, what say u lot ? Who’s in on this o
I,ve my pal with the Roadking to thank for this,he left his lights on accidentally overnight & his battery was totally flat first thing today,as luck would have it a travelling pair of military reinactment enthusiasts when on hand with a generator & leads,despite being connected to the Harley for 25 min the bike was having none of it . So a pair of jump leads appeared from local garage & bingo we got it going by attaching the red positive clamp to the starter & earthed out the black negative one on the engine . Whilst waiting for it to charge initially on the generator I set
