    I am just trying to demonstrate that a larger catch bottle can be fitted . For those that have had theirs overflow. You don't have to go this large of course ! OEM Norton bottle is 1oz - 30cc . The one I fitted is 8oz-250cc for that extra capacity. A 4oz - 125cc may be the perfect size for most riders. Until you've had your bottle overflow out on the highway you may not understand.

    Clearly, one size does not fit all where Norton incontinence products are concerned.

    I agree.
    Just needs maybe a gold cap, with a Norton logo and a pin stripe on it.
    That way it'll look like a standard part that comes on all 961's.

    Thanks Tony
    Great idea, maybe save me buying another set of brake pads.
    Where did you find the 8oz bottle?

    That might do the trick. When do we get to see the Carbon Fiber version??

    Nigel,

    I admire your style!
    Litre bottle, kind of the "nuclear" option though, no?

    Is there enough room there for the missus to get her foot on the peg?
    A good mod would be a rusty spigot on the bottle to drain it so no need to remove/replace the duct tape.
    But the master stroke is retaining the original product label on the bottle.
    This is definitely the the new standard in Norton catch bottles that we should all be shooting for.

    Will you be supplying kits directly, or should we all be contacting Matt at CNW?:p
