Stormtell me why I am being unreasonable in wanting no problems from a £16000 motorcycle.
I don’t think that your argument is unreasonable, I have made it myself to Norton following an issue with my bike. That said, the issue was minor and sorted quickly and the 961 is a great bike (mine is a markII) as Fast Eddie has said, the MarkII has many of the issues sorted - as many forum members will tell you the MarkI can be sorted, especially using Richard 7’s manuals, so the choice really comes down to whether you want one. It is a quirky bike! Needs dialling in but I do not regret getting mine.
MarkII will be more reliable and have a warranty, Mark I might be more of a gamble....
See if you can meet up with another forum member and ride one - could be the clincher!
