Re: Ukrainian Camp Stoves

... That crack about setting the bike on fire first before starting it reminds me of the video that was shared a while back. The one where the guy flips his Ural over on a snowy road and it catches fire. He and his buddies put the fire out with snow, flip it back upright, and it starts up and drive...

Re: Lost Ground

Does it not ground to the frame at the regulator box mountings?
The switch was eliminated , not because of reliability issues. It was removed from the harness because it wouldn't take the ground load once a starter motor became standard.

Re: 2000 Ural 650 Clutch

Firstly, what country are you in and roughly whereabouts?

Secondly. Is the whole clutch lever assembly ( including the handlebar clamp) made of cast aluminium or is the lever aluminium and the clamp steel?

Re: do snow flakes openions count ?

Just to add more fuel to the already busy post, i im surprised at the early response as to the Ural not being a distant cousin to the M-70 ww2 version. If that is the case my rendition of Ural history at any UDF encounter just took a big hit! granted now it seams as actual period machines whether c...

Re: Is it harder to kick start an Australia Retro Ural ?

So, I have to assume that pre-electric start Ural, KMZ, Dnepr, and vintage BMW sidecar rigs are not very popular in the UK. Is that a fair statement? Or is there a modified kick start lever that makes it more convenient for rigs with the hack on the left. HD and Indian apparently considered this wh...

Re: Salt Lake Craigslist - K750 basket case $900

And the thicko has still advertised it as a Ural, even after being told it isn't one. Some people are just plain stupid.

Re: '62 Ural thing

Nothing to do with Ural. That's the bike that was up on craigslist in September for $17000 Looks like a very good example of a genuine KMZ K750 from between 1957 and 1963. Note the short leading link forks and inverted handlebar levers. Far less common than the later K750m with tele forks and normal...

Re: Dnepr Alternator

The g424 will cope if you go to a 12 or 14ah battery . I've been running an electric start on one with a standard genny for about 5 years, no problems. Just don't let the battery go flat because the genny won't charge if it is. I'll be ovenighting in Blackpool at the MAG halloween/bonfire party on N...

Re: 1999 Ural Red Star 650 electronic ignition..HELP PLEASE!

You have an incorrect rotor that does not suit your camshaft. The ignition you have is suitable for bikes fitted with PM-05 manual advance/retard ignition. It is fitted using an adaptor stub supplied with the kit. The rotor you require has a locating washer spot welded to the inside which has two fl...

Re: Plug wires

Doesn't really matter which you use as long as there is about 5k ohm resistance over the lead and spark plug cap. I use copper cored leads with 5k NGK caps.

Re: BMW chassis compatibility question

One has to ask :lurker:

What happened to the original engines/gearboxes? I can't see someone saving those frames without collecting other parts as well!

Re: Info on a basket-case (with pics). Thanks!

Thanks much for the primer. So without doing any real research, the jist is that KMZ is the Soviet-era name for the works in Kiev, Ukraine these bikes were produced in. After the dissolution of the USSR, KMZ became known as Dnepr (and, I take it, Cossack in the UK). KMZ's are cousins to Urals (IMZ)...

Re: Info on a basket-case (with pics). Thanks!

Thanks for the info! I'll do a search on KMZ K750. Well, it's obviously Soviet-era with Russian script all over it Thanks again! It is indeed a Soviet era bike, but from the KMZ Ukraine Soviet military factory. Not from the civilian IMZ factory in Russia. Easy to identify if one is familiar with th...
