140kts, couldn't maintain heading, autorotate into the sea etc etc. The Commando is back on the road and running better than ever. I've just removed 9kg of rack and abus granit lock from the tail end and it feels much better for it, In fact it's going so well I'm wondering if it's trying to tell me something. Total cost of mainshaft, layshaft a couple of bushes and new mainshaft 1st and 2nd gears £406 bargain :roll:

Good to see you are back on the road, are you still using the rollers to start up and if so have you been doing it in top gear, I like my gearbox it always just click in gear, have a very light clutch and the friends that have ridden my Norton always say how well it changes gear, its been like that ever since buying it new all them years ago, the only work I have done on my gearbox is lay shaft bearing and 4 kick start pawls, not bad for a everyday bike for the first 37 years.
