Re: Shifting clunk

Clunk is normal, yours sounds fine. Shifting is a much debated area, so I will give you my take on it. One key is how hard are you accelerating? An up shift and idling, light acceleration along does not lug the engine but an up-shift and trying to accelerate moderate to hard does (or with a load). A...

Re: I'm not alone...

That is great.

I hope to see the guy I met at the Hardware store last year, there are a few other sightings by my wife and I.

Re: Passing the hat 2020 - Server rent is due again!!!

On the way. Let us know if you come up short. I am fortunate in that financially we are minimally impacted and that part is very small and the investment end that is longer term anyway. note: If you send snail mail as do I, my wife came up with the idea of using sponge on the glue. Segregate mail in...

Re: Any problems with 2019 Ural's

Good info and prime example that its not just 2019 components in discussion here. If I am tracking the new trany has been out for a few years as is the FD. So any item that is common is in the pool and if its occurring on 2019 then its not a resolved problem. If not resolved in 3 years its not been ...

Re: Starter would not stop

I think you are right to suspect the starter switch as well as the rest of it. It could be any of the suspects, starter switch included. Take the power off the starter, fix or replace the wire, breakout the voltmeter and then see what is getting signal voltage or is not and has continuity through th...

All I know is its my party and I will remain a Scorpio that I grew up with. Damn the technicalities, full horoscope ahead. Heck I may even join the flat earth society. I have found out I was less of a Hermit than I thought. Turns out I was a Rock and Roll addict - we got unlimited internet (I know, ...

Re: A spin around town

I dropped my ballot off, needed gas, one on the corner where the box was, went for a 15 mile ride. Nice.

40 degrees, good enough.

What are they going to do, arrest me?

Re: FD oil level mystery time.

What you describe is normal. I don't have a Infrd to measure it, but worked with a lot of gear boxes and those create major heat. 140 deg is not uncommon. It going to be hot enough you won't want to keep your hand on it very long. A gear to gear is something like 8% loss to friction. Ball park it at...

Re: Setting the clock

Been a while since I did it. As noted, Mode and Reset at the same time, then MODE until you get to the clock. I think the reset changes the digit or in this case the 12/24 hour, then jump to the next number with mode. Mode down for 2 seconds saves the settings. You might wind up going in twice.

Re: Corona Bonus plans?

Agreed, but those activities are built into our plan so we did not need the money for that. Sadly our small eatery we do support is about out of business, all staff laid off, short hours via their takeout window. With things shutting down, we are pretty well eliminated from any of that support. So, ...

Re: Aligning the Toe In By Measurement at Rear Adjust

We lived at Northway back in the late 50s (FAA). We made a number of trips up and around the Top of the World. Grand area, love it. Great place to have your ashes. I spotted a great campground just Tok side of Chicken on my last trip through (on the R80GS). The one Eagle side of Chicken was not as n...

I, like many senior drivers where I work have been volunteering 1 unpaid day off a week so low seniority driver's can work too. My wife has also been working fewer hours. We will be using it to replace our lost income. And that is what it should be for, those who need it. Gold falling from the sky ...

Re: Parking the bike...

I know its late in the situation, but when there are incremental operations with more than on party going on, like sending it out and having the head replaced by one party but then having the other issue still to be addressed by the first party. In other words, you need a complete rebuild (or new en...
