Fuelling issues

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.

have fun 

 

 

961 fuelling issues

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?

Mid summer 961 meet at “ Krazy Horse” towards end of July

“ 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

Flat Battery ? ,no need to remove tank,use car jump leads

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

Rear numberplate holder assembly?

Hello, I've had nortons off and on since I was seventeen, I think? Navigator, Dommie and for the last 15 years a commando 850 mk3. I was a member for many years and found the technial help invaluable. Theyaki was the nom de plume. Anyway to the present day. After a large op the surgeon said that trying to kick start an 850 commando was now out of the question. Spend a fortune on a second hand 961 sport then ! Cut down on beer and food now required. Now to the problem. I decided to fit a lead for a bc bravo battery charger so had to remove seat and tank. After lying down on cusions!

My 961

Hi All, just a few words on my Norton 961 sport 2015 model. I was one of the first riders of the first batch of 961 bikes to hit  Australia and my bike arrived in January 2015. After some mods (pipes,breather changes ect) my bike has never missed a beat,I travel around 100 kms in every ride and it has always been reliable and a pleasure to ride.I own a few Nortons (Model 50, ES2,Mercury,Commando 750&850 ect) so to say Im a bit bias is an understatement. But I must defend the 961 as it is a pleasure to own one.

961 rack/carrier, straight through long pipes & de-cat

Can anyone point me to where I can get a rack to fit 961 SF? The bike has the split seat which has what looks like substantial mounting points (see photo) on the base but I can’t find any suppliers. I’d also like to fit de-cat & straight through pea shooters but the Norton ones are hideously expensive. Any help greatly appreciated. Seat base

961 oil leaking from final drive shaft - NE England.

My 961 SF (2014) has a persistent leak from around the drive shaft. The dealer (unfortunately not a Norton dealer) said the seals had degraded due to the bike standing for 6 months so replaced the oil seal and o ring with parts supplied by Norton but this has not fixed the issue. The bike only had 930 mls when I got it and has had 1st service and remap done. Any ideas?
