Question about 2006 Highland Highland Allroad

Recommendaiton for a short riders

I'm signing up for the MSF in my local community college to see if this is something I can really do. Being a short 5'3 I've been very hesitant although I've always wanted to ride. Initially I thought of getting a Honda Rebel to learn and practice with but my commute is 73 miles one way and most of it is highway with a speed limit of 70mph

And with gas prices as they are I'm really looking for a more fuel efficient method of travel hence seriously considering using a bike for my commute. So now I've been looking at the AllRoad since it may better handle the highway travel. I'm just wondering if anyone knows how good they are for vertically challenged folks like me and or if there are any alternative cruisers for beginners. I'm a newbie too and ride a suzuki C40. I'm about 5'4 and the seat height is perfect for me...27. It handles well and light. I ride it on the freeway going between 60 and 65 and it rides well. The best thing to do IMO, is to search on the web at the different motorcycle sites, and then find a dealer and sit on the ones you're interested in. ,,,

How do I remove the driver foot pegs to install floor boards?


Hi, Anonymous the floorboards will come with instructions for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue. For more information about your issue please visit the website below. Good luck and have a nice day.

My low rider seems to have an electric short and battery go dead after a week or so


The only way to trace the short is to check the currrent drain using a ammeter in the circuit in series. The circuits must be isolated one by one and it must confirm when the drain stops, the circuit in question must be checked.

How much air should the rear air shock have in it


It depends on the load on the bike. Unless they've changed something, Harley recommends on air for a single rider. Rider with passenger, 5 pounds. Rider, passenger, and maximum recommended luggage, 10 pounds. You use a special hand pump available at your local dealer.

Good Luck

I bought this 2003 Kawasaki ZX9R about 3 days ago so i'm new to owning, maintaining and proper riding of this bike. I listed a problem that I am having with the bike about 2hrs ago but I also needed to ask...


You are a new bike rider ... first thing ... don't get mad - don't exceed the speed limit ... I don't care what color your new machine is or how cool you think the girls will think you are while scaring the daylights out of old people and dogs. It is not cool. (insert boys if appropriate)

Due to the nature of this site - I have not seen your other question ... so I cannot comment.

To your questions, there should be a dip stick on the right hand side of the bike. Check it ... don't over fill it. When empty, it will take probably around 2 quarts. Do not depend on using all 5 gallons of your gas before you refill ... best advice I can give you is fill every 100 miles until you get a feel for your mileage. There should be a trip meter on your bike - set it when you fill up with gas. You know about the 'reserve tank'? Never turn the valve to reserve unless you are out of gas. Otherwise, you WILL be out of gas. Pushing a cool motorcycle is not cool.

If you have a tach, there should be a red line on it ... NEVER EXCEED IT ...

Please find a Motorcycle Safety Foundation BRC and enroll in the course. Not only will you get lots of good information, your insurance company will probably give you a discount for having completed it. (Basic Rider Course). You may want to join the Kawasaki Riders Club and you might want to join the American Motorcyclist Association.

What is the recommended pressure for a 2004 vstar custom?


Look at the sidewall of both tires. There will be a 'MAX PSI' embossed on the tire. It will probably say Max 45 PSI. At 45psi the bike will ride like a rock. At 15psi it will ride really squirrely. Find a psi at which you feel the bike handles well and rides well. One rider may weigh 125 pounds and the next rider may weigh 300pounds. The best psi for each rider will be different due to weight. Generally 35psi works for most riders.
