Norton Electric Start Kit (Alton)
In around two hours you can say goodbye to kick-starting your Commando. The Alton Norton electric start kit (eKit) fits directly onto the engine via a specially designed inner chaincase supplied with starter motor already mounted. Once fitted, replace your existing outer chaincase and away you go.
With each kit there is a starter motor, drive chain, sprag clutch, shock absorber, AC generator and a specially constructed inner primary chaincase, plus all the necessary cables and fittings, as well as detailed instructions with colour illustrations to make fitting the kit as easy as possible.
Alton designed the eKit to be as discrete as possible. Because the original outer casing is retained, your bike stays visually authentic. But authenticity doesn’t mean inefficient. By incorporating technology that didn’t even exist when the Commando was conceived, Alton has built an eKit which offers 150 watts output with an average of 90 to 95 watts at normal cruising speed. The eKit is designed for positive earth systems and is delivered with everything needed to effect the conversion. Just add a high output battery, a Commando engine sprocket puller and and a clutch spring compressor. Technical advice is available, and with a two year guarantee, what are you waiting for!
