Bad light pattern dazzling other drivers.

But we get enough of that already with LED day running lights on cars.

Re: What are/is your Winter Project(s)?

Just for any UK readers reading this, MOT rules were updated 11 January 2021, HID or LED 'bulb' in a headlamp designed for a filament bulb (e.g., H4, HS1 etc.), aka 'a HID/LED conversion', will be an MOT fail. :D

Re: Just a heads up

It's been my experience the relay may be alright, but the connecting termnals are corroded. They can be cleaned up, but will never be top notch again, so I ask myself do I really want to faff about or just get new one(s) :D

Re: Petcock vs Petcock

Further to what Claus said, yes I would expect it needs to be vacuum hose, specifically, best bet is get it from a car spares store I found. Dare say eBay has something but need to look for vacuum hose, not just any hose will do.

Re: 20 MINUTES ON THE HIGHWAY AND IT STOPS (Moved)

I always turned off my petcocks, still will do for the Bantam (when it's finished). Hose joints can spring a leak too. Guess how I know ... :D

Re: Did you know?

Yes I knew that. :D My dealer told me a story where someone epoxied up the O2 sensor wires to better protect them from the weather etc. That totally screwed up both lambdas. :o Needed new ones. Inside the lambda is a crystal, and at normal working temperature (bluddy hot, and this is why it also inc...

Re: Choosing routes for Urals

On a mildly humorous note, an early lesson in my Ural ownership was that the same twisting roads that I glided through on any [single track] motorcycle was now one hell of a workout when trying to tiller a sidecar through the same snug curves. So, I do still occasionally choose routes for the sidec...

Re: Fixed vibration, now have a noise: FIXED 600KM update

Interesting thing: Removed each relay 1 at a time. Starter wouldn't engage but the pump would still prime each time.
What did I say, the pump is controlled directly by the left cyl ECU, the relays have nothing to do with it. :lol:
