Re: Spring in Colorado NOT in Moab

I haven't seen the Facebook postings(s). However, I do remember that in Spring 2018, when a bunch of us Soviet Steed folk were in Moab, there was another group of close-knit couples, who, I believe, were from Southern California, staying at Archview for the week. They never rode with us, and did th...

Re: Central PA AdVentureRide April 18th

Since it's a new route every year and they reference this year being a bit tamer in the link, I would think it to be Retro friendly... worse case would be a minor detour.

Central PA AdVentureRide April 18th

This ride is organized by a couple of guys on the AdventureRiders forum. Three of us enjoyed this ride on our Urals in '17. (admittedly we didn't quite complete the route due to time lost performing a roadside donut replacement) I don't know the exact route as it varies from year to year but they go...

Re: CRAP XIV HEAD COUNT

I'm a more likely than not probability. It would be a solo ride in with tent.

Re: 2WD questions

It is a bit lacking on instructions but that can be largely explained as the dual shifter can be set up either way. My preference is the taller and easier to access shifter for 2wd and the one basically under the tank for reverse. Someone else's priorities may be different. Frankly I didn't feel the...

Re: 2WD questions

I I don’t shift into 2WD while riding at speed. Can I, probably buy feel not good mechanically and doing so physically while riding in snow.... On my 2019 Jeep I don’t Shift 2 to 4WD while driving either but that’s just an old habit from the olden days. Of course electronically I can but.., I'm goi...

A respected member here is now paying about that much to upgrade his '18 to '19 specs.

Re: Weird Smell Question

This is a tough one to call with smells and especially descriptions of smells being so subjective. I agree with others that it is probably nothing and will likely go away or at least change...but; The one rubber bit I have smelled prior to/during failure is in the alternator's cush drive. Not sure h...

Re: Best Tune for Hot Running?

Admittedly my carb tuning experience is limited but maybe the first step in leaning it out a bit is removing the shims under the needles?

Wouldn't that lean the mixture through most of the throttle positions?

Re: Best Ural Tool Roll Ever?

I've been due for an upgraded storage system for a while, a few thousand kilometers of bouncing off-road has taken its toll on my tool and storage bags. My temporary fix has been to put my frayed toolbag into a larger bag ;)

This $40 bag looks like a more elegant solution.

Re: 1WD vs 2WD Dnepr

Lots of info on phasing can be found here using the search function, it's just a matter of keeping the u-joints aligned. The heavy shaft was only found in the earliest 2wd, not much fear of that unless the bike is sidevalve and locking differential

Re: 1WD vs 2WD Dnepr

I am not aware of any real world failure rates that are worse for 2wd vs 1wd Dneprs. That is, other than it is a more complex system with more moving parts. As far as performance the 1wd does fairly well in the vast majority of situations. The 2wd does however behave better in most conditions. On th...
