jwaller , that is amazing from your description your friend Bill was lucky. blind curves can be deadly especially on three wheel vehicles. A distant cousin in design was the old ATV trike which had very bad handling and arnt produced anymore. cant think of anything that will give you a severe case of saucer eye more than coming into a right hand 90 deg turn to hot on a Ural. Boy if it wasent for bad luck you and your friend Bill wouldn't have any luck. the post mis? adventure pretty well sums this up,hope you have many more uneventful rides in the future. :cheers:

Fresh oils, put a new tire up front so my bike’s now riding on relatively new tires all around, new brake pads, new spark plugs,....., new speedometer and odometer. The valves, surprisingly, were all within spec. I hosted a maintenance day at my home yesterday. Bad weather kept the fair weather riders away. Still was happy to host the event and must thank Kent Silk for helping me out with getting a new tire up front and for fixing my dragging front brake. I also learned from Kent how to get any wheel off the ground with no more than the center stand and a 15 inch 2 X 4.

Head gasket blown?






Or just a leak?

Yo, Justin...I'd torque the heads first (incremental: 32/35 ft-lbs), then adjust the valves. If it still leaks, then maybe it's time to replace. My 2¢ advice.

Mine seeped like that when I went to full synthetic. Will probably go back to dino when the cheap synthetic runs out. Heads are torqued properly so I think it is pores in the casting.
I may not be good, but I'm slow.
