Preparing Commander engine for a restart - procedure?


Hi everyone, I 'm told there is a special factory procedure for starting Commander engines which have not been used in a while.

The bike I am interested in has potentially not been started or turned over for 10 years and may be longer.

Does anyone have whatever it is that has to be done that they would share please?  It was suggested that I need some RX40??

Is there a way to turn an engine over by hand to see what, if anything is seized? Thanks for reading


Commander police fibreglass wanted


Does anyone know of where I might find the rear full width top cover, single seat and rear fairing piece for the radio antenna and blue lamp for an ex West Midlands Police Commander please? The rest of the bike is complete, albeit painted grey.  Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks for reading. Norman

Classic petrol tap


Hi there - I need a petrol tap for my Classic. I can only find one for the Commander, which looks similar but it is mounted on the offside - if I fit it to the classic the fuel outlet will point forward, not a big deal but would like correct part. 

Anyone know where I can get the correct tap? Was it used on another bike? Steve

Norton Commander Paint


Hi there - first post on this forum (I have posted on the Commando site). Recently bought a Commander and need to repaint the fairing, does anyone have a close match paint for the dark metallic grey they used? I can only find codes for earlier Nortons. It is an old Interpol I have so it was white and want to paint it a civilian colour.
