I'm sure Stu Bodycoat can add or subtract from this. If there was indeed 2,000 961 Norton's produced between 2010 and 2019 would that not constitute a ready customer base for parts and service ? How can a motorcycle company walk away from this potential business ?
I'm afraid I really aint got a clue. When I started at Norton, they were in the middle of a boom. I mean they were churning bikes out at a good rate, to the point they'd dedicated a day to crating at one point. Eitherside of that, pretty much drip feeding them...so I cant really gauge how many, sorry
Back home today after Stuart at Motorvated sorted out my 961. She stopped working some months back and Stuart suggested (on some of these threads) that it could be the map sensor. So I trailered it up and had a chat about some of its other issues and issues in general about the 961. I cannot be more pleased, Stuart sorted the map sensor fitting me a second hand one (by choice) from a yamaha off ebay. Changed some relays from some unknown asia manufacturer to Bosch, fixed my warped rocker cover, sorted my cush rubbers, fitted her up with some cracking Avons front and rear, cleaned and oiled the chain, modded the oil cooler clunking issue, adjusted the oil catcher bottle, replaced some washers on my disk brakes to stainless steel, sorted my rear brake, changed the brake and clutch fluids and sorted the MOT. Several more things also. Back home on the trailer so took it for a spin and it runs sweet, cracking and popping and glad to be back with 100 kgs on top of her.
We are lucky to have Stuart and I certainly intend to be back using his superb knowledge on the 961's
