looking for somewhere I can get hold of a trip reset knob for my 1973 750 commando. fits from underneath and not the side. does any one know if they are the same as the side type, wondering if I could buy one and somehow lengthen it.. Any advice appreciated.
It should be a 4" or 5" cable with a pointed end..unfortunately, they extract themselves and go for a ball of chalk. I haven't had one for about thirty years. A trader at Beaulieu a few years ago promised that he was going to start making them, but I haven't seen any.
Have you tried Tony Pople at speedo repairs at Ash nr Aldershot.? He will know where to get it if he doesn't have any.
He's in old bike Mart.
Tony will not touch Vaugelia's but may have spare trip reset's, mine is not 4 to 5" long, it's just long enough to get to and very unused. Have a Smiths to replace it with but that has no trip as per the originals used by Norton for the Commando.
