Noob Question - Nacelle Wiring Access?

Woe unto you that bought the first model year of a major remake, perhaps this section can help address any 2014 and later model Ural "imperfections". Here's a special section for folks with the latest rigs to discuss 2014 and later model-related topics such fuel injection, 3-wheel disc brakes, hydraulic steering dampers, spin-on oil filters and other anomalies that don't belong on true Russsian motorcycle ;-P We've gone from using big hammers and greasy wrenches to needing computers and Ouija boards in order to fix our rigs.
Forum rules
Please keep this section specific to issues pertaining to 2014 and later models such as fuel injection, sidecar and rear disc brakes and so forth. Ask general or non-2014 and later specific questions in the main Hammerin' & Wrenchin' section.

Noob Question - Nacelle Wiring Access?

Postby msamsen » Sat Apr 14, 2018 7:47 am

What is the easiest way to get to the dash wiring underneath the headlight nacelle?

Thanks!

The pic is of the sidecar, but you are asking about wiring behind the headlight. If you truly need to get to the wiring behind the headlight, it is held on by two bolts on either side of it. Remove the bolts and pull out the headlight.

... you are asking about wiring behind the headlight.


Or are you asking about the auxiliary "head light" nacelle on the sidecar? Me thinks...

He said dash wiring.

For me = take headlight shell off / out.

You have to mark it else lose beam height setting.

Thanks!

Sorry about the confusing picture...but, I’m running wires from the bike dash into the sidecar. So yes, I did mean the main headlight.
