    Hello everybody
    We are setting up a Highland Owner Support (Andi Zimmerer and friends).
    The Swiss Website is up, the german one will follow soon. Not much content yet, but at least a contact email Address.
    www.highland-motors.ch (pbruelhart@pbfribo.ch) and www.highland-motors.de (temporary: andi@highland.se)
    It is a fact, that there are many diffrent versions / configurations of Highland motorbikes on the road.
    We try to establish a Highland Owner Address list with a configuration list
    Very important to professionaly help you with technical advice or spare parts, we need a detailed description of your Highland.
    We will set up a Online form to fill in, but meantime just contact us by email
    - year of registration, frame number, engine number
    - make / brand of front suspension and brake
    - make / brand of rear suspension and brake
    - carburettor or FI (with picture of throttle body)
    - make / brand of exhaust system
    - picture of control box
    - pictures of bike (front, left & ride side, close up of engine and swing-arm)

    Have a good winter season

    Pibr - Glad to see you here.

    Any chance you can get an English version of your web site at some point down stream?

    I don't know if I've been here long enough to "welcome" anyone but I'm glad that you and Andi are getting the website up and running.

    Looking forward to a better translation than using Google or Bing also...

    Once Rollox was gone and Lillen moved on, Andi & pibr are the only sources for NOS parts that I know of.

    There have been a few misc bits come up on ebay in the US: wheels, engine case and some exhaust cans but nothing in the way of a mother lode of the former US Highland supplies inventory that didn't make to Rollox and Andi.

    Thanks to Rattattack - after throwing way too many parts at the bike a $10.00 fuel pressure regulator solved the fueling issue on my Allroad - for the moment. The fuel pump still seems to run all the time which was the first symptom before the fueling took a dump. The joy may be fleeting but it's running now:clap.

    Anybody here speak Russian/Slavic/Ukrainian? The video does a walk around on a Supermotard. Skip to 4:30 - there is some kind of a discussion on the injectors.



    The throttle body unit and intake/injectors on the bike & in the box of bits do not look anything like the unit on my bike.

    Hi,

    for the chain slider you can use the slider from Kawasaki KX125, P/N UF3703 - it's the same and works.

    Best regards

    I have no first hand information. If the stock price of UHLN is an indicator $0.008 per share says it's done. US Highland had a mfg plant in OK that was shuttered. The web site had been up and running as of four of five months ago and still had engines listed as available. I don't know that US Highland ever built an engine in the US. I think the more likely scenario is they assembled engines from the parts inventory shipped from Sweden to the US. As to what happened to the US built frames, at least a few engines and running prototypes bikes - I have no clue. The v-twin engines were Folan's design. Folan no longer builds the v-twin 950. I don't know about any of the other engines.

    As I remembered my Highland with fuel injection that is how it is by default. My fuel pump were running all the time as long as the ignition was on.

    Thanks 950v2 - I wrongly had in my mind that the fuel pump cut off after four or five seconds - Rattattack mentioned as well that his new to him bike likewise has a fuel pump that runs as long as the ignition is on. Glad to know that I was making the problem in my head where there was none.

    Thanks for posting the video - in the walk-around review of the bike, your intake looks different than the set-up on my bike. I didn't know if in the later years the intake changed and was trying to understand the discussion of the injectors.
