Do most guys who race Commandos, do it with the footrests in the standard position ? Or do they use rear sets and simply reverse the gear lever on the box without using a separate lever and linkage ?Nigel, yes it was me who posted and those are my pics.
Really easy job, Bruce sent me the 1 up 4 down barrel, as it as a cassette type system , really easy and quick to swap from the 1 down 4 up barrel that he supplied the box with.
As Kenny pointed out, most guys have the 1 down 4 up barrel and reverse the shifter lever , I already had rear sets and wanted the standard Norton pattern.
I just returned the barrel to Bruce as soon as I was done.
Back in the 70s a young lad by the name of Peter Williams did ok with a single disc.I don't mind racing a bike with the shift pattern reversed, but I don't like it if I ever get serious. Everything happens too quickly to be concentrating on that. With two-strokes, I simply ride them long enough for my brain to change before I get stuck into it. They are a different ride anyway - nothing like a Commando.
