cNw Hardware & Fasteners

These are Stainless Steel hardware kits and individual parts that we have put together to make your bike look and work even better. The kits consists of different fasteners that makes sense in certain applications. They have all been modified/polished to not only work but look great. If you are doing a complete rebuild or just cleaning up a certain area of your bike, these make the process a whole lot easier. You can rest assured as with any cNw parts that these have been made to fit and work great. As always the finish is of highest quality

There will essentially be three different types of kits available

Type 1:

– Complete hardware kits for individual applications
– Hex and socket caps have been turned. Lengths have been modified to fit just right. Heads, ends, nuts and washers are polished as needed
– The grade on the hardware in these kits are sufficient for the application they are intended to be used for
– Easy to work with, individually bagged and labeled
– All made in house at cNw

Type 2:

– These are stainless kits and parts for your Commando such as Axles, Chain adjusters, Transmission mounting hardware, Center and Side stand springs etc
– Grades vary depending on application
– Some of these parts we do not make ourselves but get from different distributors. If so, they are still all sanded and polished to a finish that has become our standard
– Parts are pre-fit to ensure they work as intended

Type 3:

– Finest hardware available for critical applications such as engine and brake systems
– Developed by cNw and ARP
– ARP makes what is by most considered to be the highest quality performance hardware in the industry
– The ARP 300 series stainless has a higher rating than any other stainless hardware. Its conservatively rated at 170,000 psi (170 ksi)
– cNw has teamed up with ARP to develop bolts with threads previously unavailable
– If you want the best hardware for your Commando, this is it

cNw Master hardware kits


Manufacturer:  cNw, RPC

Description:  I am putting together complete, Master hardware kits for early 750, late 750, 850 and MkIII Commandos. These will be 95% complete and include virtually all the fasteners needed for a complete build. All items are in stainless. Different grades based on application. Each item will be individually labeled and bagged so it’s very easy to identify the fasteners as you are building your machine.

There will also be a complete engine and gearbox kits for those that are building their own engines and gearboxes

These kits are extremely helpfull when building your machine from the ground up as you will know that you have all that you need and there will be no question in regards to fit or quality. All the fasteners will be finished to the highest standard as you have come to expect from cNw

There will be a little time before these will appear on-line but the packages are already compiled and you can contact me for a complete list of what is all included

Of course, if you already have certain fasteners or parts, the kits can be easily modified to exclude those items

cNw barrel kit for 750 and 850


Manufacturer:  cNw & ARP

Description:  This kit works with all stock barrels and uses a shorter stud than stock. This will allow you to install the nuts after the barrel is completely seated on the engine cases as opposed to the stock type where you have to start the nuts on the threads well before the barrel is all the way down on the case surface.

Details:

  • Stainless studs
  • Studs are short to allow you to install the nuts after the barrel is completely seated
  • Polished ends on studs
  • 12 Point, stainless ARP nuts
  • The 12 point nut allows you to use a closed end wrench to tighten, giving you a far better engagement than an open end wrench
  • Complete kits with studs, nuts and washers
  • Available for both 750 (9 studs) and 850 (5 studs) engines

cNw / ARP head mounting hardware


Manufacturer:  cNw & ARP (Automotive Racing Products)

Description:  Simply the best head mounting hardware for a Commando in the industry. cNw teamed up with ARP to develop these previously unavailable bolts with a British thread. The kit consists of stainless and high-grade steel fasteners

Update:  Jim Comstock engineering did some testing on an undercut bolt. This essentially stretches the bolt when tightened and allows it to hold a torque more accurately. This modification proved to be a big improvement, especially when using a Copper head gasket. I am now having ARP make the bolts with this undercut

Details:

  • Type 3  (see hardware section for Type 3 designation)
  • 5 ea ARP/cNw 12 point head bolts. 3/8 – 26 thread. ARP 300 series, heat-treated stainless that is rated at 180KSI (180,000 psi)
  • The 5 bolts above are also cut down in the center or ‘waisted’ in order to accurately maintain a torque
  • 3 ea ARP head studs. 3/8 – 16 x 3/8 – 24. ARP 8740 Chrome Moly rated at 190KSI. Black Oxide finish
  • 2 ea cNw front barrel studs. 5/16 – 26 x 5/16 – 24. 4140 steel, heat-treated to 40Rc
  • 2 ea cNw 12 point sleeve nuts. 3/8 – 24 thread. 17-4PH Stainless, heat-treated to 42Rc
  • 1 ea ARP 12 point nut. 3/8 – 24. ARP 300 series stainless
  • 2 ea ARP 12 point nuts. 5/16 – 24. ARP 300 series stainless
  • 5 ea ARP washers. 3/8. Stainless
  • 2 ea ARP washers. 5/16. Stainless
  • Fits both 750 and 850 cc heads

Note:  There is one modification needed in order to use that above kit and that is to install ‘heli coils’ or ‘timeserts’  to change the thread for the head studs. Those studs are prone to pull out with the stock thread size and we require that a 3/8 – 16 thread gets installed in order to use the ARP head stud. This service is available from cNw of course if you don’t have a local shop that can do this modification

cNw / ARP Engine Mount Kit


Manufacturer:  cNw & ARP

Description:  Simply the best possible hardware to mount your engine to the engine cradle and front Iso mount

Details:

  • Type 3
  • Stainless steel ARP bolts, washers and 12 point nuts
  • Special alloy, ‘300 series’ ARP stainless with a tensile strength of 170,000 psi
  • Substantial extra margin of safety over Grade 8 hardware
  • Polished to a high luster
  • cNw modifies these bolts to ensure exact fit for both cradle and Iso mount
  • Available for both Pre MkIII and MkIII engines
  • If you are looking for the best possible hardware available, then this is it

Note:  One small modification is needed to install this bolt kit. A relief needs to be cut on the cases (see 2 images below on the right) and a Dremel tool or similar can be used. This by the upper, right side of the front Iso mount.  A ball end cutter will work the best to remove just enough material so a wrench will fit over the 12 point nut so it can be held securely as the bolt gets tightened. There is a chance that you can grind a wrench down really thin so that it will slip in over the nut but the relief is most likely necessary
