Re: Left Valve cover leak?

On my 2015 with the original graphite gasket and following the torque setting in the owners manual (17.7ftlbs) it lasted 30,000k's, the nut didn't come loose and it didn't leak. Due to an engine rebuild I ordered a new set and was sent cork - not sure if I am happy about that given the price seems t...

Re: Newbie & advice for modifying a sidecar

You would be better off checking to see if the left hand mount can be ridden in the countries you want to visit.
Plenty of explorers out there have traveled the path you want to, some have circumnavigated the globe and I don't remember stories of the chair changing sides.

Re: My 2015 steering damper rebuild.

Was the seal kit available from Ural? Our importer said it was a dealers only kit... IMG_0062.JPG Friend of mine built a simple tool to remove the end cap. The split nut and modified socket allow you to remove the piston without the need to stick a small screwdriver through the shaft hole. I used 45...

Re: Front Axle Gorilla Install and Moving Spare Around

I found this online in the Ural procedures, the manual does not repeat it, any background on it? WARNING! MAX SPEED OF THE SPARE WHEEL ASSEMBLY IS 50MPH (80KMH)! THE SPARE WHEEL ASSEMBLY IS FOR TEMPORARY USE ONLY! REPAIR AND REPLACE THE STOCK WHEEL AND RETURN TO THE ORIGINAL POSITION AS SOON AS POS...

Identifying the spare wheel hub? - solved

Is there any way to identify the spare wheel hub from the normal front/sc hub? The Ural Parts catalogue shows the spare hub as #1041-06017 and the front/sc hub as #1040-06020 from 2015 onward. I have had all three of mine side by side, measured them, and can't tell them apart. I cannot find any iden...

Re: Off-brand compliance fittings?

They gave you the wrong ones. You need the 2014 - 2015 carb flange - # IMZ-8.128-01811-10 They gave you the 2016 - 2018 carb flange. I hope you also ordered the gaskets. They do not come off the old ones very well and you don't need vacuum leaks. Thanks Terry, That clears this up for the difference...

Re: Off-brand compliance fittings?

They changed the throttle bodies in 2016. The mounting diameter up to 2015 was the same diameter as the Keihin carburetor. Make sure you order the correct size. Thanks Terry, I ordered flanges for a 2015 EU Tourist and got a bag with 1040-01811 written on it and two of the new style flanges (pictur...

Re: Off-brand compliance fittings?

Gene sent me these off-brand compliance fittings and one of them failed after a few weeks. They might not be off brand. I just got a set sent to my from our importer who said they are stock, so I checked the parts catalogue. Seems that the KOK IPO175 flanges were available for Cab models and only f...

Re: Carbon build-up after throttle butterfly

Re: Now that all 4 hubs match, are the rotations worth it??

I rotate the front, spare and chair occasionally - but for me it is more to do with taking the time to make sure disk / hub retaining bolts haven't seized because doing it in the safety of a garage is a lot nicer than finding you can't get the disk off the front to put on the spare when it is rainin...
