    The torque limiter and secondary gear (the one behind) is special parts for Highland. I dont know where to get those nowadays. The torque limiter is the one part that makes the Highland a bit unreliable.... and the reason i sold it :-(

    The sprag clutch is KTM part no. 58440026000. I have used that part and it fits perfect.

    The start motor should be the same as BMW F650/F800 1993-2008 models. Denso part number 228000-6900.

    Bought the KTM sprag clutch but it’s bigger than the original one

    That was bad. For my Highland it fitted perfect. I had a 2004, and I guessed there were no difference in the starter parts. But apparently there is.
    I can see a discussion about that in an earlier post, which I have missed.... seems that both are KTM parts.

    Sorry about that :-(

    The flame from the exhaust flaps, it seems to me that the camshafts are incorrectly installed, although I did everything as I wrote above, or the spark does not strike at the right time.

    I've already removed and placed camshafts several times and nothing has changed, can anyone help.
    Who knows how to describe the process once again how to install these camshafts, maybe I misunderstood something and do not correctly do it.

    wow, so the engine works, but it worked for a few seconds and stalled, which means that I correctly installed the camshafts, most likely the problem with the ignition.

    Not sure if this will be any help at all but here goes. Full disclosure I am not anywhere close to a skilled wrench by any stretch.

    I had an issue with the fuel pump. The bike wouldn't idle; it would start and die. There was crap in the in-tank pick-up filter so I swapped out the two filters and replaced the fuel pump. Post new fuel pump, the bike would start, but only stayed running between 2K and 4K RPM. At Ratattack's suggestion I put an aftermarket fuel pressure regulator on the return line to the tank which took care of the upper end of the RPM range. The bike still has some idle issues that I'm chasing but has been much better with the pressure regulator.

    I took off the injector and installed the carburettor, with it is much better riding. The pump does not play a role now)

    Just a thought - when you installed the cams did you set the cams on the compression stoke for each cylinder? I have no experience with the Highland but the KTM has a 75 degree V. Once setting Cylinder 1 the engine is rotated 435 degrees for cylinder 2. On the Highland I think it is a 60 degree V so I assume it would be a 420 degree rotation to TDC on #2.

    A question for mechanically skilled. I am looking at getting an aftermarket ECU to try and improve the fueling issues with the bike. A question I can't answer is: "What is the trigger pattern for the VR sensor?" I've gone through the assembly info and didn't see anything but what I have is not complete. If anybody can point where I can find this, much appreciated.

    Hello Guys and Galls,

    Are the carburated modems reliable?
    Im looking at one with 5k on the clock.
    Stunning bike in brand new shape.
    Just wanna know if you can do 30-40k km on it without having to replace the top end.

    Love to hear from you.

    Well I got it anyway.
    Loving this bike so far.
    Runs so crisp with so much power.

    I went trough this forum but did find any workshop manual.
    Does any of you have one available!?

    I’m wondering what the valve specs should be and where to measure the oil level on the old engines.

    Thanks in advance

    Jblok - Welcome:

    Nice find on a very sweet looking ride.

    Not sure on your engine where the oil is checked. On the photo of Illiota's bike in #1192 above you can see the sightglass on the side of the engine above the gear shift lever. The dipstick is on the top of the cover.

    I think you'll need the old one, KTM P/N 58440026000 - it's smaller and fits on mine, MY99
