I had a call today from Marie at the factory , my bike was booked in on April 9th for a service ( didn’t happen obviously) & this was a follow up call saying things are starting to happen & service slots are available from next week , also parts enquiry’s to are active , the call I received was from a mobile number not in my contacts ( cell phone )as many of them are still working from home .
With no hotels atm I’ll pass atm & prob go Krazy Horse which is much closer & in reach for me for a while u wait service .
So this has gotta be good news , get your warranty work booked in chaps .

Excellent, mines ok for a while but thinking of the MOT in Feb, I cannot be arsed to take off the shorties with the "Race Only" tags on the inside, the birthplace of the bike should pass it surely, as long as i put that thumping great reg plate back on.

I didn't realise but I just confirmed continued ownership for at least another 8 months

What is the best way to contact the factory, email or are they operating a land line?

I ground my tags off but you could put a bit of high temp tape over the tags, MoT testers are only allowed to report on what they see and aren't allowed to remove anything for a close inspection, including tape/stickers etc. My local MoT station is 'bike friendly +++' and the tester firmly believes in loud pipes saves lives, my XR with supertrap race cans passed with flying colours last year :)

Not sure the factory is an MOT test station is it ?

I'm booked in at the factory next week for servicing my 961 sport and a bit of speedo/fuel warning light work. Thanks Guys and Marie for phoning. They don't do MOTs though as the technician doesn't have that certification, I don't ever remember that being offered previously, but I asked. She doesn't know if the new owners will start to offer that. But its great news that we can be looked after again I'm not a great mechanic and would rather pay.. Quite a lot it has to be said.. to have it taken care of. Social distancing is in operation at Norton so I may only be allowed to peer in the windows but I look forward to being there next week!
