Question about 2007 Highland Supermotard

1 Answer

Large foot

I take my Motorcycle Safety Course the last weekend of September and will start seriously hunting for a good starter bike at that time....just in time for winter! Smile On to my issue though. I wear a size 15 in both shoes and boots. I'm wondering if anyone knows of any brands that make motorcycle boots/shoes in that size. I've been able to find 14's

But that's as high as I've seen them. Stores usually don't carry my size so I'm very used/comfortable with ordering online. Anyone out there have any suggestions? If you already have a pair of work boots or hiking boots that covers the ankle go with them…,,,

My motorcycle won't turn over. Battery is good, horn and lights work. If I turn the kill switch on and off a couple of times or rock the bike, she will start right up


Hi Anon, since your bike does start when it is rocked, we may suspect a problem with the wiring. Your Suzuki has at least three safety switches which prevent starting the engine unless certain procedures have taken place. First we must determine the efficacy of these switches. With the ignition key on, kickstand up, transmission in neutral, clutch handle depressed, emergency shut-off switch in the "On" position, depress the starter button. Normally, the headlight will dim when you depress the starter button. If it does dim and the engine does NOT crank, the problem may be low voltage from the battery or internal starter issues. If the headlight does NOT dim, there could be a problem with one of the safety switches, ie. Kickstand, clutch, neutral etc switches. To determine if one of these switches is defective, use a jumper lead to bypass each.....one at a time. Since the kickstand is most vulnerable to debris, check it first then you must locate the others and do the bypass elimination test. It is not advisable from a safety standpoint to leave a jumper wire in the circuit to circumvent the purpose of a safety switch. This procedure is for testing only. Have a nice day. Herb

Recently went for a ride and everything was good. Made a stop, when I came out bike wouldnt start. turning the key everything was normal, rpm gauge spiked, lights turned on, fuel pump was heard. Went to...


Did you leave your motorcycle in gear when you turned it off? It sounds like the side stand safety switch is keeping the bike turned off. If my Suzuki is running and I pull in the clutch, with out raising the side stand, and I place the bike in gear with the side stand down, it will immediately shut off. The cycle is set up that way so you will not drive with your stand down and go out of control when you take your first left turn. If your cycle is not in neutral and your side stand is down, that would cause the condition you describe. If that is not the case start by inspecting the side stand safety switch and the clutch safety switch for proper operation.

My friend, a motorcycle is not a Toyota pick up. Don't even try to fix it at this point of your motorcycle career.

By nature, air cooled engines have a wider range of normal operating temperatures. Even if your bike has a radiator, it is still more motorcycle engine than automotive engine.

Since this is your first bike, I recommend two things for you. First, seek out a Motorcycle Safety Training Course, such as the BRC from the Motorcycle Safety Foundation. Yea yea, I know, you know how to ride and maybe you do. If you take the course, you may get some good tips and probably a discount on your insurance. Second, take your bike to the Suzuki dealer and have them go over the bike mechanically for you to make sure all is up to snuff on your 11 year old bike. Get a tune up and ask the mechanic about your bike. What to lube, where the oil goes etc. You should become very good friends with your new motorcycle - believe me when I say - it is a far cry from driving any other kind of vehicle.

Your investment of $ and time spent with the mechanic and your BRC instructor will pay dividends for many years to come. Good riding to you my friend. Enjoy your new motorcycle and ride safe.

I just bought a 2006 stratoliner online and wonder if there is a security switch that prevents me from starting it.


I am understanding you have a motorcycle in the driveway that you cannot start. The lights are probably operating as is the horn etc, but it just will not start. Is this correct? Please read all the way to the end of my comment. Thank you.

There is a "kill" switch (this is the street name for the switch, manufacturers call it something else, preferring to not use the term "KILL" on their product) on the handle bar. It is usually RED. It's purpose is to shut the motor off by simply pressing the switch into the "off" position. If this switch is not in the "RUN" position, your motorcycle will not start.

There very likely are other modern safety features on your motorcycle. For example, many motorcycles cannot be started "in gear" or with the clutch engaged or if the kick stand is not in the ride position.

Recap: If your kill switch is in RUN; your clutch handle is pulled in; your transmission is in Neutral; and the kick stand is up, it should start.

Beyond this, is your battery up to snuff? Have you ever seen the motorcycle operating? Can you check the voltage on the start solenoid STARTER SIDE with the key in the on position with the start switch depressed? Is your battery full? Should read 11.5 or higher voltage on a volt meter. Can you jump the start solenoid with a heavy cable? With a heavy cable, temporarly jump the two heavy wires connected to the start solenoid. Expect sparking. WARNING - MAKE SURE THE BIKE IS NOT IN GEAR IF YOU TRY THIS! Can you run a heavy jumper directly to the starter? WARNING - MAKE SURE THE BIKE IS NOT IN GEAR IF YOU TRY THIS!

Can you communicate with the owner? Has he or she been helpful with this trouble? Are they close by where you live? Or ... sadly ... are you stuck with this in a 'as is' condition?

This battery may be as old as six years. You can check it with a hydrometer (each cell) or a volt meter - each cell or the entire battery. Hydrometer reading should be 1200 or better (dont get acid on you or your bike). Battery voltage should be at least 11. V DC - ideally 12 or more V DC. Each cell should ideally read 1.5 V DC. If you feel this test necessary, you insert the probes one cell to the next using the posts for the connection on the end cells. Again, don't get acid on you or your bike and clean your probes after the test. Baking soda is the best for neutralising the acid.

Probably the best procedure for you to follow for the battery is to test using the posts. If it is not 11 or more volts at rest or 14 or so with the engine running, replace it.

I hope you get your motorcycle going. Ride safely. If you have not taken the Motorcycle Safety Foundation Basic Rider Ccourse, I encourage you to take it. Search 'Motorcycle Safety Foundation' for a location near you. For me, I have taught this course off and on, mostly off, since 1973.

My ER5 Clicks instead of turns on


Check if the battery has 12 volts.
Check the battery terminals if they are corroded with acid deposit. Clean them if they are, by using a wet sponge, wet it with water and let it stay for a while on the terminals this will ease off the corroded acid deposits.
If the battery is ok and if there's no acid deposit on the terminals , thn you have to check the starter motor, it may need to be overhauled.
Better too to check the solenoid switch.
Hope this helps!

I left the bike in my garage and now it wont start, what could i do?


hi friend,
Step 112230_65x95_aspect.jpg
Move switch to ON position
Locate your dirt bikes OFF/ON, RUN/OFF, or START Switch. Use your finger to move the switch to the RUN, ON, or START position.
  • Step 212233_65x95_aspect.jpg Turn fuel switch ONLook on the side of your dirt bike near the engine and locate the "FUEL ON/OFF" switch. Use your finger to move the lever to the "ON" position. Your dirt bike will not start if the fuel is turned off. This off switch helps prevent fuel leaks when your dirt bike is stored.
  • Step 312234_65x95_aspect.jpg Turn choke ONIf your dirt bike engine isn’t warm, you will need to turn the choke on to start the bike. Locate the choke lever near the engine on the side of your dirt bike, probably not far from the "FUEL ON/OFF" switch. Use your finger to move the choke lever to the on position. Once your dirt bike has started and the engine has warmed up, you will need to move the choke lever to the "off" position.
  • Step 412236_65x95_aspect.jpg Foot on kick start pegBend your knee and place your foot on the kick start peg while leaning your weight on your other foot. Stand slightly and push the kick starter all the way down with as much force as you can.
  • Step 512239_65x95_aspect.jpg Push all the way downIf the bike doesn't start after the first attempt to kick start it, try again. Remember to push the peg as far down as it will go with as much of your weight as possible.
  • jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); }); Tips & Warnings
    • If your dirt bike has a four-stroke compression engine and won't start, release the compression valve and try starting it again.
    • Sometimes, the engine remains in a compressed position and cannot turnover until the pressure is released.
    • If your dirt bike is equipped with an electric-starter, but won't start, you can follow these steps and kick start it.
    • Remember: always wear safety equipment when operating a dirt bike or ATV.
    • You should at least wear a helmet, boots that cover your ankles, and a chest protector to avoid serious injury.
    • Always supervise children when operating motor vehicles.

    Bike has electrical power , but starter doesnt do anything, battery is good. how do I differencate the problem? starter , coil , other electrical componet? it was just laid down before it start going bad....


    Check the start solenoid. Check the large terminals. Do you understand how it works?

    When you press the start button, you energize a electric magnet that pulls a disk against the bottom of the two large terminals. Over time, these connections become burned and they may not make a connection.

    So, one terminal is the battery, the other goes to the starter. check for voltage on the start side with the key on and the start switch depressed. Voltage = starter trouble. No voltage = your solenoid may need replacing.

    Prove it ... with a jumper cable (really, a automotive grade jumper cable ... not a little wire) connect the battery side to the start side to see if the starter will spin.

    I hope this helps you

    Over coming fear


    cracked rbs and a broken big toe. Well I settled with insurance and bought another bike exactly like the first. The problem I have is that when I ride in curves I start freezing up and have a full blown anxiety attack to the point that I have to stop. I am taking the Motorcycle Safety course next weekend and am hoping that it will help but if any one has any suggestions I would apprieciate them. I live in the Blue Ridge mountains so curvy roads and mountains are something I am going to have to deal with will riding. I know the that Im suppose to psh and pull but Im afraid that the motorcycle in going to lean to far and Im going to crash.PLEASE HELPI'd hazard a guess fear is making you look down. Keep your eyes UP. Look where you want to go - and I mean where you want to go a ways down the road. A great deal of the rest of the technique flows from good eye discipline. It's the quickest way I know to break the fear - freeze cycle.,
