Re: What did you do ON your Ural today?

After adjusting the parking brake for proper function, I took the Gear Up in for its annual State safety inspection. The multi-line family moto dealer with whom I've done business for years was recently sold. It's been reinvented as a [rather sterile] ATV and UTV showroom. Thankfully, my favorite me...

Culled from the Book of Face, so some of you may have seen this one.

Re: 20/21 ural. Gas tank compartment discontinued?

I test drove a 20/21 gear up last week. I noticed that the gas tank compartment wasn't there. Is that feature discontinued or do you need package for the sahara to have that? The new engine tech includes a fuel pump that is now inside the tank. Deletion of the tool box (its proper name) was indicat...

Re: New rider, opinions please!

Welcome to the forum, Dirk. My dealer delivered my new Gear Up to my door. Prior to that day, my sidecar operating experience was limited to one test drive at his location. After we signed the papers and he left, I took my new rig out to acclimate myself to it... ...and I thought that I made an $18,...

Re: What did you do to your Ural today?

I replaced the headers, complete with new oxygen sensors, and installed new to me catalytic convertors. I had bought take-offs from when someone installed a 2 into 1, and had been using the mufflers, but the headers were for a newer rig. I finally ordered new headers so I could install the new O2 s...

Re: What did you do to your Ural today?

I hate it when I find a part on my shop floor or on the driveway and wonder where it came from. The Oxford Union Society would be proud of how strenuously I sometimes argue with myself regarding whether or not to disassemble that which I had just reassembled, after finding a missed part on the gara...

Nice faux Zuma you have there. :wink:

Can't complain about the price, though.

Re: What did you do ON your Ural today?

What I use is simply what I find at the local auto parts store, so no links. Since the moly 60 fiasco, and a short time after when I used a 50/50 mix, I've just used plain grease, and haven't had any issues in over 10 years. Understood. I've bookmarked your products in the past; I figure if they wo...

Re: What did you do ON your Ural today?

I use a Loctite moly paste on the Ural's splines. I've been pretty fussy about the frequency of cleaning and applying fresh lube, also. This is what comes up when I search for my Amazon order; I say this because mine has LB 8012 on the label. https://www.amazon.com/Loctite-234227-LOC51048-Anti-Seize...

Re: Delaer Parts & Supplies

Yes, expensive, but on a Honda I am loathe to use anything else. Particularly on a CVT. At least with Honda you'll get the best quality part, not always the case with other brands . Agree x2. I was careful, for example, to purchase the precise ambrosia for the CVT in my wife's 2019 CR-V. The newest...

Re: What did you do ON your Ural today?

I needed some house-blend ATF for Offspring's CR-V, so off to the dealer I drove.

And aren't OEM fluid prices wicked?
