    No supercharger yet. One thing after the other...

    This is quite confusing. MK1 is at the factory. For what? A rebuild? So now you have 2?

    As far as I am informed you have to give the old engine for the replacement one. The new engine has the same number as the old engine. The old one might be destroyed...

    Raphi,

    Sorry, I may be a bit dense, but did you buy a new motor, or was the motor replaced by the factory for some reason?
    Can you provide a little more information?

    Made it half-way, not proud, 2300 miles on the bikes this year (which is close to my average) but only 800 of those were on the 961 :(

    For posterity and the Norton historical archive, FE's mileage should remain in the list, especially for shaming purposes.
    And he's lower in the list than me, and makes me look good.:cool:

    LOL ! You,ve got to admit that the mileage list was a good idea. It has lost some of the interest as of late.
