Is the nut retaining the flywheel right or left hand threads? I want to be sure before I continue. Thanks, Robert

Brian the Highland man from Rock and Road says it is left hand thread. Should have a puller on Friday and be able to give the thread sizes.

I have a puller. The one for my Husqvarna fits. It's 26 x 1.5, from Motion Pro, MP#12, but the package says Dennis Stubblefield Sales, www.dssalesusa.net.
Thanks for the info on the thread.

Mine were beautifully secured, but at least now I know. When reinstalling the flywheel, do I do anything special? Retaining compound on the taper or threadlocker on the nut? Since it's keyed, I doubt it.
Thanks, Robert

Stator RR

Hey Guys:

There is a least one of us that lacks wrenching know how (that would be me) who would benefit greatly from write-up for dummies of the RR of the stator.

I got a new stator, thank you Highland Group, got the flywheel puller drawing and sourced a puller in the US that should work. Yanked the stator cover and had no way to secure the flywheel, so borrowing an impact wrench to spin the retaining nut off the crank. Learned the retaining nut is left hand thread, good to know, probably easier to get it off without adding a couple hundred lbs of torque first, thanks John & Robert.

Robert if you haven't already buttoned your bike up a photo of how the stator wires are secured would be a great help as a benchmark to look for.

Any guidance is appreciated.

I'm quite addicted in using Loctite 222 Low strenght locking on about every threaded thing I can find on the Highland. Not including the plugs..

I think I secured my stator cables using gasket silicone, to get the cables to stay in place.

Edit: Rumor say that Mr Lind finished 3rd in the open class in the States with the 507cc. Not confirmed, but if that's a fact
then it's "quite!" impressive having that the bike is a prototype just been tested for a few months...

Ride out Wednesday

Nice ride round the Yorkshire Dales. Really suits the long travel comfortable suspension, light handling and torquey engine. Company was a Guzzi 1200 Sport and a Versus, nice lads.

removing cats

The cats are built into the front of the mufflers, actually into the pipes welded into the mufflers, and are VERY difficult to remove. I ended up tossing the mufflers and installing new ones without cats.

I had some Two Brothers titanium slip-ons that I bought used for my RC51. I cut the pipes off the stock mufflers as close to the mufflers as I could and slipped the new mufflers over the stock pipes. After cutting the pipes off you still have to remove the cats, no fun, but it turned out well.

Suddenly running better!

John, my SM is now running quite well, for some unexplained reason. My gas mileage jumped from 30 to 42-45 miles per US gallon (last two tanks). What could cause this? The only thing that seems remotely possible to me is that an injector was not working properly, and now is. I had previously checked for a loose TPI or ignition pickup; everything was fine.

Now that it runs good enough that someone might actually buy it, I'm not sure I would sell. Now I'm ready for dual throttle bodies!
