Snakey: Very nice; Highland porn it's addicting.
Nice 1 Mr snakeo
The pistons look very clean after 10,00 km's. My rear cylinder was very carboned up in the ports when i took the engine out, dont know if it is the fueling or i have another problem...time will tell. Think mine has 8,000 km's on it.
Will you be running an oil cooler after the engine work ?
I am getting ready to do some of the service on the Allroad and did not see a torque spec sheet for the chasis. Is this published anywhere?
I am specifically looking for the pinch bolts on the front axle, the front collar nut and the rear axle. If there isn't any factory guidance, I was going to go with 15NM on the pinch bolts, 60NM on the front collar nut and 100NM on the rear; let me know what you think.

Welcome to the thread, I see your location is Sweden. Do you have a Highland or have a Highland connection?
Little note to those interested, Greasy is away till the 16th so no updates till then.
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.

Thanks! A picture of my bike!http://www.geting.se/viewimage.php?image=156825-My Pictures0002.jpg Best regards /Myggan
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.

For lovers of the yellow bikes (earlier model)
Thanks for the email address, Highland Group responded in no time, very willing to help out.
Yes they are always helpful/Myggan
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.
Hello to all of you!
Highland 950 Motard Performance Edition.
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
Sweet ride by the way. How does the performace edition compare to the standard?
I also have a qustion for the Highland collective: has anyone installled any type of oil pressure and water temp. guages if so where did you put them and can you post up a pic of the install.
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.
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.
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.
