NORTON BRAKES

 

2LS Stiffener Kit - A factory supplied kit to improve the operation of the Commando 2LS front brake by keeping the entire width of the brake shoe in better contact with the drum. - #06-3410 - $120.00

2LS Stainless Brake Levers - Stainless Steel copies of the factory levers. Long lever - MCW080 - $29.95  Short Lever - MCW081 - $24.50

Extended Brake & Clutch Lever Mounts -
A mirror polished LM4 aluminum die cast version of the extended control lever mounts Norton never managed to get in production. By moving the pivot point away from the hand it increases the leverage by 40% giving more control and less effort for braking/shifting. Intended for the 1970 -72 drum brake models using the early Lucas switch gear. Black powder coated versions for the 1973 drum brake models will soon be available. All versions use your current levers and pivot bolts and are threaded for a 3/8" UNF mirror.
Polished Brake Side - #C0015 - $36.00     Polished clutch Side - #C0016 - $36.00

Brake Pads - Please note there are no MK3 "rear" pads so fronts must be used.
Ferodo Platinum - Our choice. Works as well on carbon or stainless steel disc. - #C0250 - $32.95
AP - These are the current "Factory" pads. - #06-6005 - $34.95

Ferodo NOS - Older technology but a good, and inexpensive, choice for the MK3 rear - #C0249 - $15.95

Brake Hoses - We currently offer Venhill hydraulic hoses to suit factory US & UK handle bars. Both are priced at $55.95.
US bar #C0310     UK bar #C0308

Brake Shoes - New production, high quality Ferodo brake shoes sets with "bonded" linings.

Dommie / 650's / Atlas front (06-7715) - #N0245 - $48.95
Commando 2LS front (06-0006) - #N0250 - $48.95
Norton heavy weight twins rear (06-3417) - #N0255 - $48.95
         
C0060s  Lightened Commando Discs -  A standard size cast iron replacement disc that comes pre-drilled with 10 large and 30 small lightening holes. The drilling pattern is specific for a right or left side mounted disc and while visually attractive more importantly it lightens the disc. Reducing the unsprung weight of the front wheel by over half a pound both improves the overall handling and reduces steering effort. Supplies are limited at this time.

Right side - #C0070 - $169.00     Left side - #C0071 - $169.00

Rear Brake Safety Spring - This low cost, easily installed spring keeps your rear brake lever from digging into the ground if the brake cable should brake. While not a common problem, a cable braking when you're entering a left hand corner could have disastrous results. An additional benefit is a much more positive pedal return and deactivation of the brake light switch. - #C0290 - $7.40

Front Master Cylinder  - Both EOM 850 pattern (includes mirror mount vs. the 750 version without the mount) complete new master cylinders (06-4871/13) or master cylinder bodies with internals (06-1939/13) upgraded to 13mm are now available. The MK3 versions are 06-5742/13 (complete) and 06-5741/13 (body). See our Factory parts list PDF for current pricing.  All options are not always in stock or available so we suggest you order as far in advance of your need as possible. 850 Master Cylinder 

 Master Cylinder Resleeving Kit - One of the reasons for the Commando's poor front brake operation is the size of the stock master cylinder. Replacing the standard master cylinder with an aftermarket 13MM unit improves braking, but is unacceptable to those trying to maintain a stock appearance to their bike. This kit reduces the bore of the standard unit to 13MM. From the feedback we have received, it works well and greatly improves braking, however as you must now drill and tap the end of the bore to install the new sleeve we strongly suggest professional installation. - #C0240 - $76.00  Replacement piston & seals for the resleeve kit - #C0241 - $26.95

Resleeved Master Cylinder - We offer an exchange service that swaps your serviceable old master cylinder for a Miles rebuilt master cylinder that has been totally refurbished, including powder coating, and converted to 13MM. Turn around time varies but currently all models - 750, 850 & MK3 are available for immediate exchange. $199.00

A parts list can be found on our "Factory Parts - Norton" page either by the PDF or link to Andover's website. We can also supply a new Piston Pusher Assembly in stainless steel (pusher, threaded rod, clevis and locknut) and stainless pistons. A standard bore stainless body is available as is a 13MM version.

Please note - Grimeca Calipers are available again and we will soon respec & reprice this kit using the AP Caliper. Disc Brake Upgrade Kit
- Our newly developed kit uses only the original disc mounting bosses to hold the (4 bolt) adapter plate that correctly locates an aluminum Grimeca 2P brake caliper to work with our 12" floating Disc. By eliminating the traditional fender bracket tab as a third anchor point we have produced an adapter plate that is lighter to reduce unsprung weight. In addition, the tab both offers little if any rigidity to the mount and, as it is not a machined part, its location on each leg varies enough to require custom fitting of the adapter plate to keep it parallel to the disc surface. The kit includes, and was designed to be used with, Ferodo's FRP213P Platinum brake pads, the best pads we have found to date. Because the Grimeca caliper's mounting bosses are sized for 10MM bolts, we have had bushings made to allow use of standard 3/8 UNF bolts. This not only makes it easier to replace the mounting bolts if there is ever a need to do so, but also makes for a more symmetrical appearance as the heads of the 3/8" and 10MM bolts differ greatly in size. A new metal line from the caliper to the brake hose support bracket will be added in the future. Kit Includes: 12" floating Disc, Grimeca 2P Caliper and Bushings, Ferodo Pads, Adapter Plate with Stainless Mounting Bolts/Nuts, and instructions.  #C050 -

12 Inch Floating Disc

12" Floating Disc - This replacement for the factory disc is a true floater. The CNC machined aluminum center bolts directly to the Norton hub and is connected to the cast iron disc by polished stainless steel buttons and spring "E" clips. Though 1 1/4" larger in diameter than the original disc it weighs a full pound less. Fitting the disc requires either relocating the stock caliper or adapting a more potent one. In either case, a new  lower hydraulic pipe is necessary. In addition, as the new caliper/adapter plate occupies the space normally used by the rear fender brace on pre-MK3 models the brace must be modified, replaced or a different fender used. (Call for details if required) Even with the modifications needed this is one of the best ways to improve your Norton's braking action. - #C0040 - $319.00


Adapter Plates - In addition to the complete kits listed above, we can supply the adapter plates to mount various calipers to the Commando fork slider and either a standard or 12" disc. All are based on the premise the relationship between the center of the disc and the fork leg is the same as the factory setup.  Correctly sized stainless steel mounting hardware sets are also available.

#C0044 - 5 Bolt design as shown on the right for use with a 12" disc and an AP & Replica or Grimeca caliper. - $59.00
#C0045 - 4 Bolt design as shown above (our choice) for use with a 12" disc and an AP & Replica or Grimeca caliper. - $49.95
#C0056 - Locates a Brembo 30/34 (40MM mount) for use with a 12" Disc. - $55.00
#C0075 - 5 Bolt design for use with the stock disc. - Temp out of stock.
