Re: No Changes for 2021

Got it, but I am talking official where the board members need to be listed and take input even when they don't think its valid. Also can be removed if not responsive. Ural enthusiasts but neutral. Board moderators tend to be good choices as they understand the neutral part. Back to the alignment is...

Re: Maintenance

I ran over a Beaver with a bicycle one time! My first thought was, is he hanging on the frame and going to chew my leg to shreds? Then when no beaver seen, it was, poor guy, I should go back and see if he is all right. Uh no, granted it was his (its) fault but its going to be pi$$ed. Then when I loo...

Re: Thinking about the Ural

If you like mechanical sounds you will love the ural, mine is brand new and every gear change i swear i am hurting the gearbox:) no matter how long i wait after pulling in the clutch to shift, ka-bang: It gets better with time and one I have had success with is to pre-load the shift, then execute. ...

Re: No Changes for 2021

Its been interesting that the Ural despite its off road image, has a very high first gear (25 mph shift point more or less). The gear spacing is good for 85 without coming close to rev limits. In short, I am happy with the setup and would not be interested in larger engine or hp. Its the less obviou...

Re: New owner from CNY

Funny, I was sorting my tools into the new monster (71 inch) Tool Box and the 15 inch Crescent was noted as being mfg in Jamesville NY. Once most of the tools got into drawers I found I had 7 x 6 inch Adjustable Wrench (US, Spain, Japan, Boker) (I gave one to my younger brother) 5 x 1/4 inch ratchets.

Re: Thinking about the Ural

Well, the Ural is truly a hands on machine to operate and until you get used to it, white knuckle at 40+

Get a new enough one and disk breaks though!

Re: to trade in? or, not to trade in?

That would be cool, to ride a Ural at 80mph and not be scared. I've had mine I think to 85 and it was pure white knuckle. Not just the handling was at it's limits, but if I needed to stop fast I was screwed. I have been up over 75, as well as steady 75 when I was doing RPM vs Speed tests. Certainly...

Re: Hello from Los Angeles

Phew, a bit of a tough question, not having been in or through LA is 20 years. What I can say is I take my cT for my summer errands all the time. With the brakes adjusted right it stops quite well (love the disk breaks thank the powers that be, the R80GS rear sucked with the drum and only saved by a...

Re: to trade in? or, not to trade in?

Really can't help decision itself, its way to subjective. We can maybe lay out the salient points. Part of it depends on your monetary ability to do so. The other part is how much the improved power means to you. And the final part is, you could go from a good running machine to a problem (less and ...

Pure conjecture but its possible there was FOD in there and it got picked up finally and slung into the works.

Re: Careful disconnecting O2 Sensors from Wire Harness

Congratulations on getting a itty bitty connector at least patched! I hate those things. And Kudo's to Erik N for the information. Unless you work with that stuff (I seldom have had one go) knowing where to get one is a puzzle (I have had a couple over the years, I think I just connected direct.
