cNw Clutch Center

Manufacturer: STS

Description:  This is a fully hardened clutch center that is a direct replacement for a stock type clutch basket. It will work for both a chain drive and belt drive type. This center in the nicest one you will find on the market due to the tooling used and the fact that it is Vacuum Heat Treated which will give it a uniform strength all the way through the metal without putting excessive stresses on it during the hardening process. What we have seen on other centers available on the market is that they are flame hardened, which is not as consistent and only hardens the metal to a certain depth


  • Direct replacement for any stock type clutch baskets, chain or belt
  • 4340 steel
  • Vacuum heat-treated
  • After the heat-treat process, the bearing surface is machined to ensure that this surface is perfect
  • Finish of gear teeth are of highest standard and far beyond any others we have seen available
  • Made in the USA

cNw Chain Guard

Manufacturer: cNw & Deutsch

Description: Custom made steel chain guard. These guards used to be hand formed and with that came some variations and imperfections.

I am working with a quality machine shop (Deutsch & Sons) and the result is a really nice quality chain guard.


  • This is a new and improved version of the  popular cNw chain guard that is designed to flow with the rear fender and wheel
  • The core steel is laser cut for very tight tolerances and consistent fit and finish
  • Nice slim design for a light weight and all-purpose look.
  • 18 gauge mild steel

cNw Electric Start Conversion

Manufacturer:  cNw and STS (Special Tool Solutions)

Description:  A complete electric start system that fits your Pre MkIII (1970-1974) Commando. We designed this so that it is a straight forward installation that requires no modifications to your existing machine. It uses a stock type alternator so that you are not forced to use one that is supplied by us. The clutch basket is made to work with a std Commando type clutch stack. The starter itself is solenoid operated wich means that it is not engaged with the system when the bike is running. So in case of a backfire or kick back,  the gear set would just free wheel and the starter would not be damaged. We use the best possible material when manufacturing this system to ensure longevity and performance over time


  • CNC billet aluminum inner primary. Precision cut 6061 billet to ensure highest quality, tightest tolerances and best possible finish
  • The kit includes a complete belt drive system with a hardened clutch center
  • Belt drive uses a narrow (21mm) Gates, Poly Carbon belt
  • Front sprocket is made from S7 tool steel for superior strength and wear characteristics
  • Clutch basket is made from 6061 billet aluminum for strength and weight savings. Hard anodized finish
  • Starter system is completely driven by precision cut gears
  • Front drive gear is made from S7 tool steel to ensure longevity without any reduction in performance
  • All other gears are made from 4340 steel and will be cut to AGMA class 10 or 11 specs
  • High output, solenoid operated starter motor. Proven design used on large displacement V-Twins and Diesel applications
  • Sealed bearings are used throughout
  • System is designed to use a stock Lucas type alternator
  • Easy and straight forward installation with all hardware, wiring and gaskets included
  • 3 different finishes to integrate with the rest of your machine
  • The kit can be used both on a Positive ground machine or a Negative ground machine
  • Kit includes a starter switch and all wiring to hook it up to your bike
  • The major components are all made in the USA by STS in Jacksonville, Florida

Important Notes:

  • The kit will not fit on a 1975 MkIII machine as a replacement for the original
  • The kit will not fit the early Commandos that have the points pod behind the timing cover
  • The kit will not allow you to use the stock Amal air filter. See K&N replacement below
  • The kit does not include an alternator. Be sure the one that is usedwill keep the battery fully charged, especially if running lights on at all times.
  • The kit does not include a clutch stack. We do recommend a Barnett type clutch. Bronze plates should not be used
  • The kit does not include an outer primary cover. Your stock one will fit
  • The parts above not included in the kit are all available separately listed below if you need them


  • Polish is a show polish. High luster and a bit sensitive like all polished alloys.
  • Satin is a tumble finish with a silver appearance. Very durable and nice looking
  • Black is an anodized, semi gloss finish

cNw billet triple trees with internal brake line option

Manufacturer:  cNw & Damtech

Description:  This is the billet triple trees we have used for a few years on our builds that are now made available for purchase. These are unique in that the lower clamp has an internal brake line web machined into it. What this will do is allow you to run a short line from the master cylinder directly to a banjo on top of the lower clamp. Then another short line from the clamp down to the caliper. So the upper line will tuck in and never move since it’s stationary. Very clean and trick as it replaces the very long brake line normally running from the master cylinder to the caliper. The kit also includes a brake switch for a dependable operation of your brake light


  • Same high quality as our std triple trees. See here for details
  • Outstanding fit and finish
  • Lower clamp has internal brake line web machined into it
  • Kit includes the two banjos and one banjo bolt for the lower line
  • Kit includes a hydraulic brake switch that doubles as a banjo bolt for the upper line
  • The hydraulic brake switch wires go directly into the headlight

Manufacturer: cNw & Brembo

  • Rotor, Caliper and Caliper bracket are Anodized black

cNw Belt Drive Kit

Manufacturer:  STS & cNw

Description:  A direct replacement primary drive for 750cc and 850cc Commandos (not 1975 MkIII compatible). Since we developed the cNw electric start conversion, we also decided to design and offer a stand alone belt drive. The rear sprocket and belt is identical to that use in the electric start kit. The front sprocket is also the same but does not have the electric start drive gear, engagement mechanism and bearings. If you wanted to upgrade to an electric start conversion at a later time, you will be able to buy a partial e-start kit


  • Complete drive kit with front sprocket, belt guards, rear sprocket, sealed bearing, extra clutch steel plate and belt
  • One ratio available. 32 front and 70 rear offering a 2.188 gear ratio (std chain drive is a 2.19 ratio)
  • Uses a Gates 21mm Poly Carbon belt. Stronger than what is used in other belt drive kits on the market
  • The front sprocket is made from S7 tool steel for optimum wear characteristics
  • Clutch basket is hard anodized
  • Clutch basket has a machined in belt guard
  • The clutch basket accepts a std Commando clutch stack (not included with kit)
  • The clutch basket accepts a std Commando clutch center (not included with the kit)
  • One of the single best upgrades you can do for you Commando since it takes a lot of weight/load off the gear box main shaft and bearings
  • Offers a dry primary cavity
  • Kit weighs 3.98 lbs (stock clutch basket, triplex chain and front sprocket weighs 8.35 lbs)
  • Quiet operation
  • Made in the USA

Note:  The clutch basket is designed to offer a lighter clutch pull when using an 850 clutch stack, 850 pressure plate and 1 extra steel plate (1 extra steel plate included with the kit). A Barnett fiber stack is recommended

Note:  This belt drive is identical to that used in the cNw electric start conversion and if you wanted to upgrade to that at a later time, we will offer you a credit since you will already have part of the system. We would need the front sprocket returned so that we can install the electric start assembly into it. The credit you would get is $ 450.00 towards the cost of the electric start conversion. This assuming your front sprocket is undamaged

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.


  • 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

Steel Roadster Fuel Tank

Manufacturer:  Emgo (Taiwan)

Description:  Dont let the Taiwan manufacture scare you. This is the replacement fuel tank we have been waiting for. Due to the fact that the older Commando fiberglass tanks are not compatible with modern blended fuels, there has been a need for quality replacement steel tank. Until now, that has not been available. Looking this tank over, it’s a very close copy of the original. The fuel cap mount, knee indentations, overall shape and dimensions, it’s a very nice reproduction. We have seen original stock tanks off of Commandos that were not as nice as this particular tank


  • Roadster model, all steel, direct replacement fuel tank
  • Front and rear mounting holes and petcock holes are sized as stock
  • The lower panel is pressed out of one piece of metal, just like the original tank
  • The upper section is made from 2 halves with a welded seam down the middle
  • There is an internal baffle like the late-model stock tanks had
  • A stock Commando flip cap will fit the tank

Important note:  This tank is paint grade and will need some prep and minor body work before final finish is applied.

The strap in the front, shown in the image below, is only there for shipping. The tank mounts just like the stock tank

cNw Stainless steel reverse cone mufflers

Manufacturer: cNw & Cone Engineering

Description:  Due to a void in the market for a high quality, stainless steel muffler we decided to start manufacturing our own.  We made contact with one of the premier custom exhaust manufacturers in the country, Cone Engineering, and started looking at what it would take to make a muffler than not only looked right but also had the sound where were after.   The design is the classic reverse cone style and it’s finished in a high luster polish. The tooling and jigs for this was made from scratch to ensure a round, perfect taper without any variance from one batch to the next. The packing is dense which offer a nice deep sound yet its loud enough to get your attention without being obnoxious.  The polished finish is stunning and the fact that’s its stainless steel, will allow you to re-polish them to remove scuff marks, imprints or anything else that has compromised the finish over time


  • All stainless steel including the internal packing material
  • 20 gauge stainless makes for a rich sound and rigid construction. The throat where is slides over the header pipe is 16 gauge
  • Designed to be used with 1 3/8 header pipes
  • All welds are ground down for a seamless look
  • Show polished finish. Easily re-polished to remove scuff marks etc
  • Clean 2 post mount to fit a std muffler bracket
  • Rich, deep sound but still powerful enough to make your Commando sound better than ever
  • Includes a high quality, stainless steel clamp. This clamp is wide to ensure a secure mount to the header pipe
  • The seam is located on the inside, so there is not a left and right specific muffler
  • Made in the USA

Note:  The cNw logo is CNC machined into the metal on top but on one side only. This means you can install them to show the cNw brand or switch them around from left to right,  if you prefer not to have the logo show

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


  • 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

cNw Dual Keihin Flat Slide Carburetor Kit

Manufacturer: cNw

Description: If you are looking for a carburetor kit that will take advantage of the torque and power in the Commando this is it. The above kit will deliver all the fuel and air that you will need to run your bike to its fullest. It will bolt on any year Commando and everything is included to make it a very easy installation. It’s a tight fit but enough clearance to allow for some engine vibration without making contact with the frame. There is no choke on the carb but the accelerator pump makes it an easy starting system. The two carbs are bolted together so that you do not have to worry about synchronizing. The rollers in the carb-body are there to ensure the slides to operate smoothly and they do make a rattling noise when the bike is at idle. On some tanks the right side petcock will be close to the throttle linkage. This kit was designed for a performance engine and even though you will feel an improvement on a stock engine it really shines if you have some work done to your engine that demands more fuel and air such as a performance Camshaft, Head work etc.


  • Set up your performance engine with a state of the art carburetor kit
  • Unique cNw, CNC machined, billet aluminum intake manifold that has been designed to ensure maximum flow
  • We took a lot of time to ensure that this intake is as efficient as possible. The port floor was lowered and the port has less of an overall radius. The internal texture creates a better air/fuel mixture as it enters the head
  • The intake is  slightly shorter and locate the carbs a bit lower than the older Amal type intakes, creating a little more room between the frame and carb bodies
  • The intake has a built-in balance tube on the bottom so that it does not disturb the air/fuel flow. The balance tube stabilizes the idle and offer a better mixture at low rpm’s
  • cNw unique idle adjuster
  • Intake finish is fully polished. No other finish option is available
  • Keihin FCR 35mm flat slides with rollers to ensure smooth operation
  • The carbs have an Accelerator pump
  • These carbs are bolted together and use a common linkage for operating
  • Rubber adaptors compatible with alcohol modified fuels
  • Stainless hardware
  • K&N Air cleaners
  • Billet spigots
  • Fuel lines with t’s and fuel filters
  • This kit is complete with everything you need from the intake and back to the air cleaners

Don’t hesitate to contact us if you want to talk about whether or not this kit is right for your bike

Note:  There are internal seals on the carburetor that are sensitive to certain fuel additives and octane boosters. Also carburetor cleaners may affect these seals in a negative way. This is not exclusive to these Keihin carburetors but in general so be cautious when choosing additives and cleaning product

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


  • 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 Rear Sets for Drum Brake Commandos

Manufacturer: cNw & Damtech

Description: cNw decided to develop and offer a rear set kit that is made with the same quality and finish that you have come to expect.  We know that there a few on the market but wanted to do something a bit different.  The design uses a reversed shift lever that then also reverses the shift pattern on your machine.  When setting up this type of shifter we also found that the foot position needs to be changed so that the shifter can be located in the best possible location for ease of shifting.  In order to make this possible we also made a special z plate for this kit. We have had several on the road for an extended period of time and the feed back has been great

cNw Satisfaction Guarantee:  Rear sets are sometimes hard to fit. We make them to work for as many body types as possible. We have to consider the length of a person’s leg, the size of the foot, handlebar style and also the type of seat used. Having said that, the rear sets will work better for some than for others. I realize that the cNw kit is not inexpensive and if you install a set and after some miles decide that it just doesn’t work, I will offer a full refund, for a limited time after the purchase, assuming that the kit shows minimal wear when returned


  • The entire kit is made out of 6061 aluminum and stainless steel
  • The kit is truly complete with all that you need in order to install it
  • Kit uses unique z plates and can not be installed on the std, original plates
  • The set up changes the shift pattern to 1 down and 3 up
  • The brake cable operation is designed so that the cable enters a housing and engages a cam. Extremely clean and it works as well as it looks
  • There is a micro brake light switch inside the left side z-plate
  • Kit includes a brake cable and also some special, Stainless steel inner mounting plates for the exhaust
  • Stainless hardware to install is included
  • The kit can be used with a std kick-start lever but for better clearance and room for your foot, we recommend the folding kick-start lever shown in the last image below


  • The rear sets do not allow you to run passenger pegs
  • The z-plates do not have any provision for a Zener Diode to be installed

cNw / Brembo Rear MKIII Disc Conversion

Manufacturer: cNw & Brembo

Description: This is an upgraded cNw rear MkIII brake kit. We decided to get rid of the bulky, inefficient , stock master cylinder design altogether.  Even though our first generation rear kit was a big improvement over the stock set-up, this new kit is taking it to the next level of both performance and overall design. We start with a small and efficient master cylinder made by Brembo. To house this unit we are CNC machining a cover that bolts to the existing foot rest. We make a special clevis that is designed in such a way that it allows you to easily adjust where you want your brake pedal to be located when relaxed.  We decided to work with a 270mm full floating disc and designed the carrier and disc to match the front. The brake rotor, just like the front, is made out of stainless steel to give you optimum stopping power during any conditions. The carrier is CNC machined out of billet aluminum and them chromed for easy maintenance and stunning looks. To mount the disc to the Commando hub we include aircraft grade stainless steel ARP 12 point bolts. For optimum performance and weight savings we opted for a Brembo 2 piston caliper to perfectly fit the smaller disc. The relocating bracket, that allows you to use the stock MKIII caliper carrier, is also CNC machined and then show polished. The Brembo caliper is also show polished

Certain parts of this system used to be finished in chrome. As of March 2014 the caliper and caliper bracket will be show polished (aluminum). The disc carrier is still chromed for performance reasons


  • Small and extremely light weight Brembo master cylinder
  • Unique CNC machined aluminum cover to house the master cylinder
  • System uses a  small (15 cc), remote,  reservoir that is tucked out of the way but easily accessed for service
  • The remote reservoir has a bracket that locates it on the inside of the upper shock bolt. The bracket is made in such a way that it works with a Corbin seat bracket if that is used
  • New hydraulic pressure switch for brake light operation
  • New CNC machined billet foot rest spacer. This to replace the original that has the cutout for the  brake hard line that we no longer use
  • Stainless steel push pin and unique clevis that allows for easy adjustment of brake pedal
  • 270mm full floating Brembo disc with silent floating mounts
  • Stainless steel rotor for ultimate stopping power, strength and looks
  • Rotor is drilled and the carrier center is machined to match our front brake # 602
  • CNC machined, chromed carrier for strength, weight savings and durability.
  • Show polished 2 piston Brembo caliper
  • CNC machined and show polished relocating bracket for the caliper.
  • Braided, coated stainless steel brake line for unmatched performance, strength and looks
  • Kit includes all fasteners, fluid lines and parts that you need to make the complete conversion….just add brake fluid
  • All you will retain from your original system is the brake pedal
