This is the first I've ever heard of Highland. Looking at there website, it doesn't look like much is going on. No dealers in the US that I could find.

"Amazingly - the engine starts and runs sweetly without shakes and misfiring.."

That IS amazing! Better than my fuel injection, but at least I can ride mine. Since the dual throttle body conversion seems to be dead, maybe I should also consider switching to a carb.

Got one

Hi everybody

I got one: carb type, has not been in the best hands, but works fine - great power, good start, high fuel consumption. Thanks to this forum I was not surprised regarding the starting issues - mine started very bad when I got it, but after cleaning the carb it's not so bad. Now I try to restore it to a real nice bike - hopefully I will be lucky getting all the parts I need. Has anybody some contacts for plastics, decals etc??

Clutch cable replacement

Does anyone know if the Highland clutch cable is the same as used on any other motorcycle? Has anyone had a custom cable made?

I think they use the same cables as installed on Husqvarna TE 610, built until 2003 - I will check next week and give you infos!

Thanks. You will probably be interested in this info from a VERY helpful gentleman in Sweden.

"I got your email through US Highland and will try to help you from a snowy sweden. Rollox nowadays handles the service and parts for Highland motorcycles, and most of us were part of the old swedish development and production teams. I will help you with the clutch cable but will have to dig in to our old stock for it. However, before I send anything you might find the oil filter at a regular auto shop. Our original filter is a Fram component, PH 5796, and is used in many, however mostly european cars. You find a link to a website below and there you can find some of the car brands that use this. It's been around way back since the mid nineties, so I think this is the easiest way for you. I'll get back to you on the clutch cable since that is of our own design and length. In the mean time - good luck to you!

http://www.sogefifilterdivision.com/..._filtre=PH5796

Other things that might help you are the following.

Air filter: Honda 900 Fireblade -96.
Front sprocket: Husaberg -90-2004.
Rear sprocket: Suzuki DR 600 -96.
Front disc: Husaberg, KTM (Caliper mounts may vary, but pads are the same)
Rear disc: Yamaha YZ 250 -96 (Caliper and pads Husaberg)"

He also sent me a drawing for the cable, which I sent to Barnett, Motion Pro and Terry Cable (thanks PowerCell). Still waiting for a quote from Terry Cable.

He also sent me many engine part prints, if anyone is interested.

Hi nsx,

the clutch cable used on Husqvarna TE610 does not fit correctly, it is has a larger diameter, the length is nearly the same, so if u are used to work on motorcycles u can install it.

It would be great to get some engine part prints, I sent a pm to you regarding the mail address - thanks in advance

Wink No dealer in the EU

Hello

In Germany doesn´t exit any dealer of used Highlands.

You should look for private sales at mobile.de or Ebay or maybe also in the UK.

Best Regards

Olli
