    Olli, no one has responded, so I guess we're out of luck. I'm attempting to reconnect the wiring behind the windscreen, and there are two 9 pin connectors that will both connect to each other. There is no continuity of wire colors through the connectors no matter how they're connected, so without a wiring diagram showing wire colors, connecting them is just guessing. So I have a 50% chance of getting it right, but I don't know what might be damaged if I guess wrong.

    Kurt - great to hear things are coming together. Anything you can share as to the direction UHLN will be taking - bike MFG, engine MFG or combination with an OEM

    Is this project dead (dual inlet conversions)? Even one that's not a straight bolt on?

    Not sure which project you mean....but I've made some wax patterns for Johns bike.....the twinlet can be seen in almost it's final form.......However John is a big rough lad and crushed the throttle body when taking a peep at it :D

    I'll possibly have it cast and machined for spring....then find a victim to test it as John's engine let go :(:

    If you mean another project then please disregard :)

    Olli about 25 mpg all city traffic riding which is roughly the same as what KTM 950 gets. I don't get out to the open roads as much as I would like to but when I do get 35 mpg or thereabouts same for the KTM.

    Keithy - every time you EU guys post pictures of the various projects you build from nothing just reminds me I didn't learn squat as far as making stuff in the US education system. I am convinced that if you and Johan got a little more space to work with you could pump out a space shuttle or two in your spare time. I'm still in if the twinnies kit gets going.

    I simply relish in learning new things :) I've been sandcasting for 20 years and this is my way of learning lost wax casting technique for another project I have.

    I'll try giving John a ring to see how things are tomorrow:freaky

    Johann seems like my kind of guy :)

    U.S. Highland "UHLN" seems to be getting press, just not all good press

    http://www.pumpsanddumps.com/

    Reports are that UHLN has paid $170,000.00 for penny stock reviews. Penny sleuth issued a Pump & Dump alert http://pennysleuth.com/todays-market-movers-lnkd-gmcr-yum-uhln/

    The summation was avoid UHLN at any price.

    Hello John

    I plan a trip from Germany to Cornwall. We would like to stay a 5 day. Could you give me some recommendations?.
    For example city, areas or maybe Hotels.

    I would appreciate your help.

    That is the project I mean. Is it still progressing? I consider my Highland almost unridable in it's current stock condition. I still think it would be a great motorcycle if it would run close to normally. I'm really sorry to hear about John's engine. He hasn't told us what happened. I fear that without him the dual inlet conversion will never happen.
