There's lots more Olli, Highlands are pretty straightforward to work on in my limited experience.

Seems as though Highland (Kurt) don't mind extracts from their manuals being shared - very good policy I think

Excellent archive Olli, all sorts of stuff turns up eventually, some good history here.

Do you know how the bike performed, can't have been too good otherwise I'm sure we would have heard something - or probably there was some fall out?


Interesting he hung it from the ceiling rather than breaking it.



Found a few more pictures of the rally bike that may interest you.

They guy on the motorcycle is Pit. He build the thing.



Hi John

Yes it preformed not that bad but yes they had a fall out. I think a cooling tube. After that the sit together with some motorcycle builders together to make it perfect. They decided that they have to change to much. I think the main problem of Highland was evertime the money and projectmanagment. Many people (dealer) lost a lot of money with Highland that time here in Germany. I am sure that this was the main reason to take a other base for the rally bike.
The Rally bike was modefied a lot. Some of that changes are built in the 2003 models.
1) For example walve timing.
2) He change the geometric of suspension on the rear. Engine is lower build in. and rear arm is changed in position.
3) He took away completely the oiltank and took in an Oifilter on the outside. A external Oil cooler (intercooling wiht the water) .
4) Electric Waterpump.
5) The conection of the ECU were to small and they changed the to bigger connector.
6) The fueling was (manifold) divided. Hard to explain how, but I will change this on my bike and show that with some photos.

I still have a motorcycle magazin were they report about this bike. I can scan that and put it here but it doesnīt help a lot because itīs in german.
Pit told me that the bike was good at gas consumption. I was suprised because my bike is not.

More interesting material for us Olli, thank you Wondered what the wide sump plate contained. It seems far too wide to be practical.

Just an idea, if you scan the magazine the software you use may have an Optical Character Reader, that would allow a translation to be done. I expect that you have already given us the basic information though.

If your bike has a good set up I think it should have good gas consumption too. Both Johan and I have got very good consumption from our bikes. Might be worth asking Thomas what he gets

cheers

Now the Translation from Google / I didnīt check it. Sorry I am a little bit in hurry.

1 Side ( Report is from Jan 2000)

hey everybody

Hello Oldobi ive just read the post a couple of pages ago ,very strange breaking 6th gear on the highland ! Top gear burn outs maybe ?!!! haha. evil
Very nice reconstuction youve done on this bike, looks very cool.

I see you had a problem with the valve seals on the rear cylinder i also have a problem on my bike as its using oil and i seen the rear exhaust ports were carboned up when i had the engine out so thinking its the rear cylinder.
Does anyone know if possble to change the seals with the engine in the frame therefore not taking the head off ?

Lastly Oldobi great pictures of that highland rallye bike... Dr John showed me those a while ago and inspired me - not the bank account - to build something like that, its a great bike !! Nice to see it now hanging from the roof !


Ride on.

Hi. I had to learn it too. Try this

Hi Oliver,
you have to upload your pics via a third party, such as Smugmug, Photobucket, Flicker, etc, then post the link here.

or use the direct link

Cheers Olli
