I have a 2017 Baikal gear up and this is what has really helped.
-A hydraulic steering damper that mounts from frame to sidecar mount, bought on Ebay from Sean0252. I learned about it from this forum. It's super helpful in muting yaw.
-New England Ural sells a rubber brake pad that raises the height of the brake pedal about 3/8" inch. Very helpful.
-Sidecar training course. This really boosted my skills and was a blast.

Thanks for all the great input guys. :thumbsup:

I've orders a few basic things and I should take delivery of my bike in 5-6 weeks. :cheers:

I'll take folks' recommendations and ride it for a while and see if there is anything else needed. :lurker:
