    Does anyone know what bend the stock Commando 961SE has? Are they from Renthal?
    I would like to change to a bar that's further back about 25mm or so. Height is fine.

    Have you considered offsets in the clamps instead ?

    Yeah I have. Only thing I can find is something that brings the bars up 25mm & back 25mm. Not sure if I have enough cable/hose length. Would you or anyone else know?

    I am in the process of doing that now. Most of the offset clamps I can find are closer to 2 in. The only thing you can do with stock lines is go straight up 25mm max. If you can wait a bit , I will have the preliminary work done and you will be able to go to HEL-USA and get the lines that I had made up. This way you can get them right off the price sheet. First let me finish and verify with them that the lines are good and then they will list the Norton 961 Sport and Extended. These will have genuine HEL banjos and bends just like Norton UK. ! This will include specs for the clutch hose and rear brake line. You can also choose a different color.

    Hey thanks Tony! Wow That would be great. Didn't know you were hooked up with HEL-USA! Being new to Norton & this site am just getting to know you guys. Brit Twit has been a big help also.
    I'm in RI so bike weather is quickly leaving us.
    I can wait. Get in touch with me when that happens.
    One problem seems to be that the throttle cables are in a solid mount. So they are pointing the wrong way when the bars are back. On most older bikes the cables are easy to move separably for angle.
    Again Thanks!
