I am realy intersting to change the fueling system. The gear box is fixed and the machine was running but I had a problem with valve stem seal. It blowed Oil in the gear clinder. Now I am fixing it and I rework the cilinder and make some new pistons.
It realy intersting what all of you are doing. I will post some photos of mine.

Sorry I need to find out to attach some photos here. I try it later.

Welcome Oliver, looking forward to seeing your bike. In the meantime here is a pic of Thomas with his Outback (hope he doesn't mind me posting). He is a good friend of Johan (Greasesnake) and lives near him in Sweden. This is an older carbed model, he was kind enough to let me ride it when I was in Sweden in 2009. It was a flier pulling well right through the range - grreat bike

Sometimes we get the chance to see a brilliant spoof - might have seen it before but I really liked this one

I doubt this question needs to be asked but, how reliable do you guys think the new highland bikes are gonna be? One being horrible and ten being no problems. I wouldn't ask this but, I bought an aprilia rxv 5.5 and it's basically a twin dirt bike with high tech parts which is what a highland is but the aprilia has given me nothing but trouble. It's made me somewhat paranoid. I know that the aprilia is basically a lemon but I'm still scared of high tech dirt machines. I'm pretty sure the highlands are gonna be good but I need to hear it for reassurance. I would probably get the flat tracker and ride it steet/dirt with the more docile 950 for longer life. I don't think I'd race it a whole lot. Any advice would be great, thanks.

High tech, hmm, not so sure about that. Most of what I see on the forthcoming(?) US Highlands is tried and tested over a number of years. Wheels, brakes, suspension and running gear are nothing but the best. The only 'high tec' I see is the new material and design of the frame in a development of stainless steel on some of the bikes that, if what I've read is right, is likely to give exceptional performance and durability. The other area being the electronics and engine management which in general seems to be fairly bulletproof these days

It is unlikely if US Highland want to succeed long term that they will take short cuts in manufacture (the biggest source of unreliability after lazy and incompetent owners) and of course that will be reflected in the price. Let's hope we get what we pay for

950 for sale

Hope this is the right thread to post this, got a trade in from a friend, the one and only Highland in Greece, 2003 or 4 950 Outback disassembled and 95% complete with Supermoto Wheels 9no tires) and very little miles. Some cracks on bodywork but otherwise ok. Trying to locate its brakes. Bike is titled in Greece and road legal from any aspect. I remember lots of fueling and starting problems that frustrated the owner, tore the bike apart to use for a project that never materialised, motor is unopened except for starting clutch repairs. Will Post pics if needed or email to anyone interested. All offers welcome for the whole thing or parts.

Thanks

Put it all in a box, and ship it to me here in the USA. I will make it alive again, not to wither away rusting and rotting. PM me your price.
