I think it depends on the climate where you live. In winter in NZ I find them useful otherwise you must warm up for a few minutes before moving off and sometimes its really hard to get off the idle.Optional. I don’t use them but nothing stopping you from doing so.
here you go - https://www.accessnorton.com/NortonCommando/cable-linkage-adaptor-plate.26987/#post-405980I offered up a post on this a couple of years ago and am now unable to find it.
Ho All.I just installed mine. I did it on the bench and then installed it on the bike. Much easier.
I think it's a great kit. I would have made a few things differently.
That idle adjuster is a royal pain to adjust. If it was drilled at an angle so it was angled away from the carb body it wouldn't be so hard to grasp and turn.
The balance tube hole should have been a slot as it bends the hose too sharply.
Other than that it is worth every penny, quid, yen that money can buy.
Great job Don!
The thumb screw is too close to the carb body for my fat fingers to get a good grip on. I knew if my daughter was home she could turn it with ease with her skinny fingers.what is the difficulty in raising or lowering 932 Amal needles with this gantry kit installed?
That's something I have noticed too but it's only just recently started and I have had mine on for two years. I'll probably use the same fix.Plus the spring bites into the thumb screw end and turns it back onto itself. So for every 1/4" turn it springs back an 1/8". In retrospect, I would have put a washer between the spring and the knob end to act as a slip joint.
No issues with that. Once set, it holds its place since I put the threadlock on it. All drift is eliminated.Is it threaded right into the aluminum plate? It looks to me like that screw must take a pounding every time the throttle is shut.
You still have to pull the four cap screws to access the throttle body, the amount of extra "attention" is minusculeIs it threaded right into the aluminum plate? It looks to me like that screw must take a pounding every time the throttle is shut.
Huh, I am able to reach down with my left hand and adjust the idle screw with my gloves on, I have never considered my fingers as fat though.The thumb screw is too close to the carb body for my fat fingers to get a good grip on.

I don't work for Madass140 but his products have been a real plus to our hobby.
