    Hi Guys,

    I have just spoken to our techs here at Norton regarding the screw on the throttle body.....it seems even we cannot correctly set this so needs to go back to the supplier for a re-set to ensure its correct. This is highlighted in the workshop manual.

    As a gesture of goodwill to Norton owners and to help prevent this type of situation I am happy to offer our full workshop manual FOC to anyone who wants to download it. It covers all 961 variants including ABS bikes and Dominators.

    Please bear in mind we are a small company without a team of technical editors behind us so I hope its all ok.

    The link:

    Thanks to everyone for your support.

    Thanks for the manual which I have just downloaded. Section 3-18 - do not adjust this screw under any circumstance. I would make a little sticker and apply one to each of the manuals that is supplied with the bike unless its easy for you to internally change the page.

    Thanks for the download Simon, that's really helpful.

    I was going to ask how an altered adjustment can be rectified as I did get the impression last year that it was set by the supplier rather than the factory.

    The original Service Manual that I purchased with the bike actually describes how to adjust that screw:

    So while I appreciate that things have moved on, there does need to be a solution for those that followed the original instruction. Would this involve removing the throttle body and returning it to the supplier or is it something that can be done in-situ?

    Thanks

    For anyone with the Sxcar Software I have the bulletin from Norton how to adjust idle screw using software using %’s. Keep in mind this is for older bikes with older ECU. Perhaps even different throttle bodies.

    Can you confirm Simon if throttle bodies are different now?

    Hi,

    The idle screw adjustment was predominantly for SVA bikes. Everything is very different now, Euro 4 is quite a different beast.

    Probably being thick here, but what does SVA bikes mean?

    I understand that Norton have a copy of the SXcar software so the factory should be able to check/reset the adjustment using the instructions provided by the ECU supplier (which answers my question above).

    Alternatively the software is available from SCS-Delta if you buy their USB-CAN interface and the right plug. Speaking to a very helpful chap there he explained that the software is limited in what it can do, but it does allow the throttle body adjustment to be set. It doesn't actually change the setting (because that involves turning the screw) but it will allow you to check if it's right or not, using the instructions that Richard-7 referred to.

    This only applies to the SC ECU (not Omex).

    I think Simon was referring to ‘Single Vehicle Approval’ vs Euro 4. With Euro 4 being an awful lot stricter on anything and everything to do with emmsions, as well as other areas.

    Thanks for providing the download, Simon. Sort of a catch 22 for me, though. The manual I ordered through AF1 Racing is also scheduled to arrive today.
