Re: What did you do to your Ural today?

Mine: On a whim I decided to check out whether there are different trailer suspension weights and if the ones on mine are possibly too hard. Because it just jumps around a lot, and I was wondering if I should add ballast to it. Well yes indeed there is a range of different "spring rates" for these ...

Re: What did you do to your Ural today?

Them's the plastic guards innit? I got them they are quite good. I thought they would vibrate and move about, but they don't. :thumbsup: They do keep some of the cold at bay in winter time, and, albeit as someone mentioned on here, while they don't stop your legs getting wet in the rain, it's not li...

Re: Tuscano Urbano lap robe mods

I'm not at all arguing about the use of a lap robe, I am merely pointing out a possible problem using this one with a flat twin which has all its vital bits sticking out sideways into the open air, just begging to be snagged on. :D

Re: High Tension Terminal

In my case the reason the non-terminal ends were failing was the central carbon fibre conductor. It's like a very thin ribbon. Repeated insertion spread out the fibres leading to poor contact with the coil terminal. This is why I want to go to copper core! I hate that stuff. Always have. :gahhh: Th...

Re: Tank bag

You know what, that did occur to me when I was looking at the pix. I have had other tankbags scuff paint, especially the straps. Not on the Ural, on other bikes.

Re: problems out of nowhere?

I'd pull the carbs for examination and cleaning. Voice if experience here, as it concerns similar running issues on a motorcycle that ran poorly after a period of storage. I would drain the carbs if it was going to sit for several months. http://livinginthepast-audioweb.co.uk/imagex/misc/hand-point...

Re: Tuscano Urbano lap robe mods

Didn't know that, or not noticed before or forgotten. :D

You got electrical connectors and the fuel hose there tho, so still not 100% safe IMHO. Only one way to find out I guess. Image

Re: Garmin vs. Google Maps (those using Garmin)

For me, when I have Avoid Highways turned on, it treats anything that might be a highway like it has the plague, routing me through 90 turns to travel 5 miles before it will just say "OK, take Highway 16 and be done with it". The ONLY way it will put me on a highway is if there is absolutely no way...

Lovely idea, but immediately occurred to me wind blast could be pulling on the compliance fittings, just a thought. :-|

Re: 2019 MIL (check engine light) stays on

Sorry don't understand the last bit. Generator output is permanently connected to battery so is always live? Or are you talking about a fuse or link in the battery negative lead? (Which I don't have, and I'm not sure that any EFI bikes do.) But yes pulling fuse #1 should do it. I disconnected mine o...
