Rough Running 2010 Mk 1 961 Sport

My Mk.1 Sport  has started playing up again - will not run smoothly at low speed/revs , it will run fine a higher revs and under load . I have had a power commander fitted  and had it  on a reputable dyno and produced 78 bhp  at the back wheel . It had been running beautifully for about 1500 miles then I got caught in a horrendous traffic jam ( about 15 miles) and it has not run smoothly since .

Sammy Miller fixed my 961

En route to Sammy millers museum my bike fell over & the rear brake mechanism attached to foot rest snapped on two little screws, on arrival at museum we saw Sammy in his work shop & explained my morning’s schoolboy error , Sammy took the broken piece & set to work on his bench & repaired it , eternally grateful & humbled  

Another Newbie...

Afternoon all!  After 11 years of looking, i've finally got enough money together to buy a 961... it arrives Saturday.  '69 plate 961 Sport.  I don't know much about bikes - all i do is ride 'em, stop to admire others' bikes and chat about mine, and clean 'em.  I've had Harleys recently so looking forward to the change.

Talking of change, and being an ex-Harley owner, it would be unsurprising to find out that i'm after some 'bits' to modify my ride already! 

Dominator SS


As a new Norton owner I'm looking for a little advice please.

I've recently acquired a  brand new 2016 Dominator SS. It's been in storage since it was delivered, still in it's factory transport crate. I had to take it out fo the crate to transport it home.

So I would like to put it on the road.

Any help/ideas/info on registering and Dealerships etc... would be greatly appreciated ?




Pillion Seat

Just received my 5 year old 961 Sport Mk II - unfortunately it didn't come with a pillion seat.  Is it possible to buy one 'off the shelf' or is it custom made? I would probably use Saddlecraft for the custom made job.  Thanks  Simon

961 Engine management

Hi, I have an engine management system light glowing unwelcomely on my 2017 961. Is there someone that can advise of a service centre near Grimsby that has the leads and ability to read the fault codes on these bikes.

The shop I purchased from is in Manchester !

Rough Running on 2010 Mk.1 961

Hi ,Can anybody help me  please? I have a Mk. 1 961  that originally ran very poorly at low rpm , I had  a power commander fitted ( a BMW 900 twin -same firing order as Norton) it has been running as the bike should have until last week when I got caught in a traffic jam and the bike got overheated and very unhappy. The bike will now not run cleanly at low revs or on constant throttle but will run perfectly when under load . 

Thanks for any support. regards Keith
