Thanks Myggan! Likewise welcome.

I'll send them an email and see what happens. If I get a response from Highland and if they have no objection, I'll post the specs in this thread.


I found settings for the front (50 NM) and real axle (100 NM) so it's down to the pinch bolts.


I will say the bike is very easy to work on for a non-mechanic type. Oil change start to finish took less than 30 minutes. Assembling the hand tools I thought I might need took half of that time.

Welcome to the thread, I see your location is Sweden. Do you have a Highland or have a Highland connection? //

I found settings (from memory so I'll edit when I confirm) for the front (60NM) and real axle (110NM) so it's down to the pinch bolts.

I've been using these, although I don't overdo the axle as the clamps hold it together. To be honest I should use the torque wrench more than I do.

Nut, front and rear wheel spindle
14-15 kgm (100-108 ft/lbs)

Brake caliper bolts, 8x1.25mm
2.3-2.5 kgm (16.6-18.1 ft/lbs)

Brake caliper fixing bolts, 10x1.5mm
3.5-3.8 kgm (25.3-27 ft/lbs)

Standard settings, Screws and nuts, dia. 6 mm (.23")
0.8-1.2 kgm (4.5-8 ft/lbs)

Screws and nuts, dia. 8 mm (.31")
2.5-3 kgm (18-21 ft/lbs)

Screws and nuts, dia. 10 mm (.39")
4.5-5 kgm (33-37 ft/lbs)

Hi Lorretto,

can you post the correct torque values please - they will be useful to everyone.

Hey John check your email for the information on the torque settings. Anyone else interested in the spec sheet PM or email me.

Also thanks for posting the picture of the yellow bike, very nice indeed.

Welcome Renga,

superb looking Highland with upgrades to brakes and Marzocchi 50mm forks.

Don't know how you Swedes keep your bikes looking so nice.

Can you tell us about any special work that has been done to this bike

cheers

John

Hi John

I reckon the oil pressure will be fairly low as all the bearings seem to be ball or roller. I suspect if the oil is circulating that will be enough. Fortunately mine uses no oil or water to speak of. The fans come on when I'm stuck in heavy traffic and cannot get through, but no losses. Would be good to know others experience. It would also be good to hear from someone at the factory as we are often floundering in the dark.

cheers

Thanks for the response I'm still adjusting to the Highland so I may be over thinking here.

I got conditioned to look for early warning signs with the KTM. I had a base gasket failure and the idiot light saved any serious damage. Also had a water pump seal go out and the recovery tank on the radiator showed the loss of coolant so it was dealt with it before it became an issue as well.

Hey Lorretto
Im fitting an trailtech vectra style electric computer thing on the dash as im running a rallye style fairing. This comes with a pipe piece you put in the outlet radiator hose after the thermostat, the pipe piece has a sender in it for my computer thing. You could run a switch with an idiot light from here. ( parts avalible seperatly from trailtech)
I was gunna run a oil pressure guage but not going to bother now, just another thing to go wrong.
An oil temp light would be worthwhile though as there is not a cooler on the bike. Im gunna run a cooler.
You could drop the sump drill and screw an adaptor in and again run a switch to an idiot light.
My thoughts.
