Re: How to hot-rod your Ural.

For additional entertainment, a video of the M-72 engine used in self-propelled guns.


There's the fan and shroud set-up you need when running your Ural in parades.

Re: non running ural on craigslist

Right most of us fit that requirement, I'm currently trying to unload these two. Born and raised in San Francisco I realized the only way to become a homeowner was to ghoulishly wait for parents or inlaws to pass away, or move to the Carson City area Call Richard WOO-HOOOOOOO!!

Re: non running ural on craigslist

"Took it on trade"... What do you think he gave the guy for it. My guess would be $500, tops. I agree that this rig could nickel and dime you to death. You'd have to love it to take on such a project...or live in Russia, maybe. Offer him what you could sell the sidecar for. That is really ...

Re: California Fires

Probably goes without saying, but we truly have the folks out there in our thoughts and prayers. We were in TN when the fires started that hit Gatlinburg last year. The speed at which they spread is truly amazing. If that is the view from your house, Lew, it looks like you are far from any concern. ...

Jimmy Stewart, a great actor and a great American. That was from a day when actors were men, not poofy boys with buns and streaked hair.

Re: Ural tool bag

Google "tool roll" and you will have more choices and price ranges that you could imagine. Nice job on those homemade tool rolls, Siberman. Now just think about how much time you have into those and what you would need to charge if you were going to make them for resale. I'll bet they'd be...

Re: Vibrations

Check all your engine mounts. Make sure all are tight and top mount is not cracked/broken. Probably good idea to check all tranny to engine flange bolts, starter bolts, alternator, etc.. That said, a boxer engine is a self-dampening design. My 650 is electric motor smooth. My R100/7 only shakes at l...

Alternate way to accurately check your fuel level

Accidently discovered this relatively simple way to check your fuel level. Just needs cold weather and a quick application of warm moist air from your shop heater. :wink:

Re: Financing Advice?

Bob S makes a good point. If you must borrow, borrow from yourself. The other option is if you own a home, get a home equity loan and you can deduct the interest from your taxes. A home equity loan would probably be the only way to get a loan for a 12 year old bike. The collateral is your house, not...

Re: Financing Advice?

I hate borrowing money or financing. I would get a big assed glass jug and start popping your spare money in it. When you have the right amount, then go shopping. You should be able to buy a decent rig (they show up on this site quite often) for 5-6K range. Excellent advice. Taking a loan on a depr...

Screw the trailer application. Take about 4 feet of length out of that sucker and it would make a great hack.

Re: This place is weird.

I tend to believe that anyone with a Ural is not trying to compensate for anything. God help them if they are. Filtering out the wannabes, the insecure, the posers and the macho men tends to leave just normal, friendly, and helpful folk. Maybe a little weirdness here and there, but that never hurt a...

I've noticed a lot of folks are using the word "Burley" in their advertising these days.


Ivan uses the term to describe his wife.
