Re: Top speed

What Claus said full advance may not still be right. Can you try altering it slightly then ride to test? Pulling in clutch in 4th lets engine rev up much higher so there is fuel Only for revving engine no load, not pulling in 4th. Which will need considerably more fuel and of course air to go with it.

Re: 2019 Ural Top Speed With 2 Adults

To quote Ural's specs, CT is dry weight 700 lbs (not 'wet'); gear up is dry weight 730 lbs.

Yes with the added accessories and normal cack I carry around my CT is usually not far off 1,000 lbs when I'm on it.

Re: LED light bulb upgrade

Relay #1 is kill switch starter disable (kill switch must be in 'run' position for starter to work) Relay #2 is engine running starter disable. Starter will not work if engine is running. This is actually activated by the alternator charging light output, which switches off when running, thus turnin...

Re: Did you ride today?

Bald Knob - no we don't. But I wish we did. That's excellent. :D Yes. Revisited a route I did back in June, or most of, and this time didn't make any wrong turnings! How uncanny is that! Altho I did stop a couple of times thinking I might've, but I hadn't. Footnote: it may just be entirely my imagin...

Re: 2019 Gear Up Final Drive overflow

Trying letting the level drop and see if it then stops puking. But DO check the dipstick regularly! It can be down to minimum so long as it doesn't go any lower.

Re: Final Drive cracked case

Got a new final drive from Ural NE sent overnight. Replacement as about as easy as could be - except for muscling the axle back in - quite a struggle and had to call in a second pair of hands. If like mine (and not exactly, 'cause you've got the 2WD FD), I discovered you need to put the spindle thr...

Re: Rear break setup

Appendix: how long you had the rig, how much kilometrage? I found the pads needed a while to bed in from new.

Re: Rear break setup

I had to put semi-sintered pads in mine to get any real bite from the rear brake. Even then it won't stop the rig by itself very well unless I'm going really slow, so is more of a "helper" for the front brake. My sidecar brake is disconnected so I don't know about that, but with the OEM (organic?) p...

Re: What did you do to your Ural today?

Certainly has! :D I could, Mike , but I'm quite pleased with the plush "ride". What it needs is guidance, which I was thinking of providing via a central guide beam. I had envisioned a section of 2" square-section hitch receiver tubing, with the bottom side cut away, bolted under the seat and a sect...
