Re: Any Options??

Jason Ray is the Warranty service contact; (425)702-8484 x 105 (I called to verify this number and got his voicemail). The number is the 'main' switch board. Be persistent. Persistence. In all of its forms. After a period of No Joy despite repeated phone calls and voicemails to Ural HQ, I found suc...

There's a distinction here.

They're hopefully more useful than the OEM LED driving lights on the GU's hack bumper, the performance of which has left me a bit unimpressed.

Re: Ignition filter

That's obviously an aftermarket ignition filter. Using the OEM part will produce a stronger spark.

Oh and... I got the bike!
Congratulations on the purchase.

Those racks are...not insignificant. Remember to plan and secure your loads very carefully.

Are there any marks on the flywheel?
Yes. You've seen them:

all I noticed were machined out grooves.
treebone provides good advice regarding paint marks and flashlights.

Re: Autozone

Lee Pape beat me, sort of, to the point I was going to mention. Whether it's an auto parts store or a hardware store, and if I'm in real need of assistance to source an esoteric widget, I make it a point to seek out the oldest looking employee in the place. The more circumspect their bearing, the be...

Re: What did you do ON your Ural today?

I had to remind someone (again!) not to film me from the adjacent lane WHILE DRIVING ON THE HIGHWAY. I've been witness to similar inconsiderate driving (inconsiderate because the offending driver is now slowing the traffic that is following them in the left lane). That the rubes have seen something...

Re: Does anyone remember...

A feeling for that last big adventure...even if done here in the USA still haunts me... Like finding a way to cross the States on as many dirt roads and cow paths as possible...could it be done? It's already being done, in the relevant portions of the U.S. I've done a segment of it myself. They're ...

Re: 2019 Speedometer problem

One possibility is that a windscreen can focus sunlight enough to melt the plastic face or cause other damage. It happen to my M70 when I had the plexistar windscreen, fortunately I caught it before it did any serious damage, just a barely noticeable bit of cosmetic damage where 50 is. It's been fi...

Re: 2019 Speedometer problem

First problem with my cT. LCD screen failed. Jon Heindl replaced under warranty. Not the first one he has had to replace. Seems high temperature kills the display. Can you provide additional context here? E.g., was the original Acewell speedometer on your cT exposed to direct sunlight for long peri...

Re: Started a project

Congrats on bringing your custom sidecar back home. I've seen a goodly number of Triumphs pulling sidecars along. The bikes are of the so-called modern classic style: T100s, Street Twins and the like. So, if you go in that direction, you've already chosen a popular tug, one that arguably looks corre...

Re: Funny or WTF photo thread

Ammo hoarding you can’t have too many... That reminds me of a cantankerous fellow who worked at a gun shop that I used to frequent. Whenever he was at the register, he had the habit of asking me if I wanted to add a box of ammunition to my purchase. My reply was unchanging: No, thanks, I have enoug...
