No. But if you ask nicely you might get a copy of the assembly instructions.
Broken stator windings/loose connectors:
Infinite ohm through the stator.
Connected a separate rectifier (cheap bridge with 4 diodes and 100V/25A specs) and no regulator.
8V at 3000 rpm and 12V at 7000rpm without any load means no charging capacity. Just the voltage that could "jump over" via the broken windings.
If measured with the battery and regulator/rectifier you will just get the battery voltage which was decreasing when riding around.
Almost short circuit (approx 0,3 ohm) through the stator.
When connected to the battery and regulator/rectifier the voltage is up to around 13,5-14V (about +1-1,5V more than the battery itself.
The hard part was to get the hard "glue" away from the connection points. I used a soldering iron to loosen it up and were very cautious not to damage the wiring isolation. I used PL400 to fasten everything again after clamping and soldering the loose ends.
I got a new to me garage that is getting sorted out and will give the multi meter a go at the Highland. All I need now is multi-meter for dummies book.
Since you are based in sthlm i assume your swedish is alot better than my english... could you please give me a ring? I live in Vallentuna. noll sju 02- sextioåtta 42 fem2. I need to find a way to take the flyweel off...
I will call you this weekend. Until then you can view my homepage and my mechanical work in may http://highland.racing.gs/#20120518
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.
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??
So, the US side of Highland is no more, yes? there are no plans to try again?
she sent me www,highlands.se and it looks....amazingly familiar (as in what I saw in 2010)
Looks like they are rolling again.
US Highland in the Last Stages of Preparation for Launch of New US Motorcycle Company
Woho! new logo, more news about new facility, new website with promises about something in January 2013.
If somebody at this new company is following this thread: Make an Adventure bike guys and blow the GS off the marked...
Does anyone know if the Highland clutch cable is the same as used on any other motorcycle? Has anyone had a custom cable made?
Ty Davis' dad Terry will make any cable you like...
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!
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.
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
Does anyone knows a place in Europe where they sell second hand Highlands?
the only one I know at this time is in Austria - check this link:
There are no pics of it, but you can contact the owner.
A merry christmas to all Highlanders!!
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.
