That's the world's largest displacement regular production motorcycle engine.

(Well 2294cc actually.)
Yes...? But it does not make it attractive because of that. The Rocket engine is ugly.

Re: Big Beemer Boxer (1800cc)

I never said anything about nationalities and never would. Nor am I a fan of modern HD who seems to be stuck in the past. I still own a BMW, the one mentioned in my post. I also own a 2001 HD. I'm not anti-anybody or anything. My comments were based purely upon observation. I've been on the BMW tec...

Re: Big Beemer Boxer (1800cc)

This is a great opportunity for BMW to get a share of the cruiser market. Harley sales drop like a stone world wide and no matter what envy tongues try to claim is this bike a master piece. It will be expensive and most wont afford it, but it will sell. USA is not the biggest market, it is a myth. ...

I would like a big inch Beemer boxer. But...and it is a big BUT... BMW is the poster child for OCD when it comes to over-complicating things. I have the last bike they made that did not require a crystal ball to troubleshoot, a '78 R100/7. After that year, it's a crap shoot. I tend to think modern ...

Re: 14.3771 ”Hand grenade” generator.

Never heard of a Voyage 720. Thought it might be a bad translation of Tourist. But the 720 is the real puzzler. The Ural Вояж ”Voyage” was made in around 700 in total from 1997-2000, it later became the Wolf. The 720 engine is a ok engine, only that it still use the 650 crank that sucks. Some even ...

Re: 14.3771 ”Hand grenade” generator.

Does that generator have the same size as the grenade? On my Voyage is the airbox very close to rear of the generator.

Re: 14.3771 ”Hand grenade” generator.

The russians told me that the chinese made copies acually are better than the russian ones, but the bearings need to changed before use. The Denso is so expensive it acually is cheaper to repair the engine. 😄

I wonder how common it is they break or if it is some myths included?

14.3771 ”Hand grenade” generator.

Hello all. I have not much experience of the 14.3771 generator, the grenade, and i wonder how many that have experienced that they acually ruin the engine. I know they can strip the gears and the question is why. I have changed the bearings on my 14.3771 to SKF just in case. It has worked just fine ...

Re: Ural Wolf tank decal

The above design is the logo of NW, the Wolf decal has the wolf head included based on the cooperation between them and Ural.
