Dear Richard

This is my 1st post though I have been reading the forum for many months. Living in Melbourne Australia I have one of the 1st 961's bought in, though I did buy it 5 years ago, things got moving when Fraser motorcycles finally got the distributorship. They have done a fantastic job.

Am loving the bike and just finished running her in, 1,290km. Anyway love your work and am just into sorting my oil in air box issues.

Without doubt your manuals are one of the best sounding resources full stop. Just wondering if I could trouble you to get a copy......and without question am happy to purchase.

Thanks for your efforts and look fwd to a reply.

Kind regards
Richard L
Nice to have another Richard on the forum..... cheers!

There is no cost, although almost everyone has made some sort of generous donation which helps me justify my time.... PM (private message) me your email address and I'll send you the 13 manuals I've competed to date. Read them, and if you find them of value, then that means I'm able to help keep one more bike on the road. And that's what matters. You will find these Bikes are insanely easy to work. But they do have their own quarks. Once recognized you will love them even more.

I've been staying up every night last week reading and learning as much as I can about these new Nortons as I wait to take delivery of a preowned 2014 961 CR next week. There are certain quirks that make me nervous and almost hesitant but everytime I see the picture of the one I'm getting, all the doubts disappear.

Please email me a copy so I can study it. Thanks in advance.

A REVISION to the SPLIT BALANCE GEAR MANUAL tomorrow. Please look for an email from me. I had a PROTOTYPE tool in the manual and didn't properly explain how to use it. The REV1 shows the tool available and how to properly set your SPRING tension.

Please delete the one you have on file and replace with "Split Balance Gear Spring - Norton 961 REV1"

I have a few new manuals I'm getting ready to capture. Now that the colder weather is here I wont mind taking my bike apart.

GREAT NEWS!!! >>>> Colorado Norton Works will be hosting the manuals on the CNW website for free download. This way you will be able to keep checking in for new manuals. For those who made a donation, I will continue to send you the manuals by email so you never miss one - I appreciate all the support and will not let you down.

NEW MANUAL - REMOVING THE ECU

As the bikes are still very new, it would be unlikely that you need to replace the ECU, however, preventative maintenance is important. I wanted to remove mine to check on connections, add dielectric grease in any electrical connections I could and generally just see what is back there. I did discover that the ECU frame had the paint flaking off around the bolts. So I added some all purpose grease to prevent rust. Gave it a good wipe down and put it back together. It didn't take long and I suggest you do it too.

Look for an email from me in your inbox

Check out the CNW site too. The CNW will have the WEB ready version of what I email out. Lower resolution for faster download and viewing. Same Information. If you would like the high res version please email me or PM me.

Just a NOTE to say - If you ever need to unplug an electrical connection on a sensor or the ECU, at the very least, have the KEY turned OFF and the key out of the bike.

To be extra safe, disconnect the battery first.
