Re: Special Edition first look here!

Rather than putting out seemingly endless gimmicky 'limited editions' the factory would be better served striving to improve build quality and eliminate the numerous production line errors which have plagued the later model year rigs. I was looking at a friend's 2012 Patrol the other day. The powder...

Re: gas cans

Yup I'd go with the NATO can. Both can and bracket are much more sturdy than on the Russkie one.

Here is my Russian can bracket after riding the Dempster hwy.

Re: All is well with the world!

I remember the 2 stroke MZ's from my teen years in Europe in the 70's. Cool bikes they were, 'agricultural', but priced less than half of a RD250. No oil injection on them. Premix in the tank. If memory serves the gas cap had a measuring cup built in. The 250 could hammer on quite well if you didn't...

Re: A ''KISS'' for my Ural's can

After the third time my bracket broke I threw the POS away and got the NATO can. Your idea looks good though. :thumbsup:

Re: A Word about using Debit cards to pay at the pump

I never use my debit card anywhere other than at my own bank's ATM. Too many scams with debit cards. CC or cash for gas purchases.

Re: Has any had to pay for warranty work?

This seems to be standard practice these days. When I got the engine replaced under warranty due to the oil slinger issue they dinged me for the oil. I didn't beyotch as I got a whole new motor including alternator rather than just a rebuilt crank.
