Re: Connected to ECU's and Balanced Throttle Bodies!!!!!!!

For what it is worth, every "Connection failure error" I got was due to the bike/cable plug being dirty or not seated correctly.

Re: New MPG Figures (very preliminary)

If I remove the statistical anomalies, 6 entries over 8 l/100 - poor fuel, bike out of tune or just plain Ural factor, the figure is 6.3 or 44 mpg. The manual indicates 31-37 mpg as the estimated consumption but I take that figure with a grain of salt. The Official Ural Manual has been known to cont...

Before you put one on order make sure that it's just not out of alignment. Loosen then reseat and tighten.
Did this and it lasted another 25,000 kilometres :)

Re: Check engine light came on at about 310 miles

Check Engine or MIL light in earlier EFI's seem to have a mind of their own and will come on randomly or never as the case may be. How long had you been riding, was the engine warm? Was it raining? The problem may have fixed itself and be logged in the ECU as a minor trouble code error that will be ...

Re: Which one would you buy?

TMac99 wish you all the best with the bike. I would have suggested 'buy new' because then any problems belong to Ural for the first few years, but I fully understand the cost factor. Clearly from the posts, its a really hard engine to do crank and main bearing repairs on. No it isn't if you have the...

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 ...

Neither do I, but worth pointing out especially if the new user is not aware that anything written in the manual needs to be taken with a grain of salt.

Re: Oil pressure guage...

I recently watched my engine take about 4 and a half minutes to get oil back to the rockers at idle.
Makes me wonder what the rest of the oil flow is like, but as windmill said, they didn't address it in the recent round of changes so it can't be that important.

Re: hello from Gundagai, Orstralia

Are you picking it up and riding it back? Be a good shake down run and plenty of back road options to get there.
My 2c for what it is worth, get as many kilometers in the first couple of years as you can !!

...he said "because it's a Ural ... the gaps can just change."
I am surprised he didn't say "Because it is a Ural and rocker arms are made out of Yaks Cheeze" :)

Do them at suggested maintained intervals and use the gap in the manual.

Re: Alternator Removal, 2020 Gear Up

Mark your alternator housing in several places BEFORE you remove it.
This gives you a starting point at getting the gear lash right when you put it back in.

Re: Rear brakes inop

Because the parking brake still works this is most likely a fluid issue. How much meat was on the pads - were they in the right way? Rear brake setup is covered in a Tech Bulletin #S012014 Also the owners manual p5-11 Parking Brake Adjustment step 3 says "with the brake set you will have approx 12mm...
