    Himalayan adjustable length sidestand?

    Like I said, stopped on the side of the road, the ground was not flat but had a slight angel to the right. I put the kickstand down and leaned the bike left , because of the long kickstand, the bike fell right and somehow got my jacket sleeve hung up on the bars, when it pulled my arm straight...

    Himalayan adjustable length sidestand?

    So, this is what happens when you put down your kick stand and the bike falls over because of the 0% lean it has. The bike caught my jacket sleeve on the way down and ripped my bicep muscle off my elbow, causing it to spring up into my upper arm. I had to ride the bike home 3 hours on horrible...

    Hello, if it was me I would just stick it out. Believe it or not despite all its little corks this bike is a great dual sport / adventure motorcycle. My suggestion would be to start at the beginning of this thread and see what other people have done and judge whether or not that's what you need...

    Isn't it funny we're all talking about the same make and same model but everybody has a different experience in fixing it. I find that humorous. some things work for some people other things don't work for other people. Maybe something the factory should take care of before it rolls out just my...

    Let's talk stalling...

    not only would it not idle but I also had problems with it stalling at stops or long red lights. I also started to use a cheaper less octane fuel around the 89 octane Mark. And this also seemed to improve it. like I said before I'm no expert but the lower octane and the plug made a huge...

    Clock display

    I had the same issue with the display going out, but no bike stall. I found that the instrument plug was rubbing against the headlight case and that's what was making it go in and out. once I got in there and pushed everything in a little bit so it did not rub on the light case I did not have...

    This was true for my old Vulcan 900. I would have to turn on the key, let the fuel pump run a bit, bump start it, turn it off, back on again and start it....was that way since I first got it. My Himalayan used to stall but, I have since installed iridium plugs on the Himalayan and have never...

    So, the question is where does one find replacements for the rubber mounts for your windscreen?

    Losing Display

    So, removed Light to get to Plug, In doing so, looking at the plug it appears that when I had it in for its first service I asked them to adjust the headlight down. Every time I hit the high beams planes would start to land, like some sort of beacon.....anyway, it looks like when you move the...
