Re: Rear main bearing

I would keep up the pressure and communicate with Jason Rae at INZ HQ in Redmond WA. Since the US gets about 90% of Ural's production and so few bikes were affected with the slinger problem anyway, Europe may only have received a few bikes in that production run. If IMZ HQ authorizes a warranty rep...

Re: Rear main bearing

Many car manufacturers do a "soft recall" on things that aren't a safety issue. They will do warranty work on the part IF an owner shows up at a dealer with the problem rather than do a mass recall that might cost huge money. Like msblu79 said, from what I remember IMZ knows the engine numbers or p...

Re: Rear main bearing

I also have a 2010 engine and there was a problem with the welder setup that attaches the slingers and roughly 50 engines got out with weak welds. I had one of those and got the same swarf on my drain plug too. I contacted IMZ service (Jason) and he was aware of the issue. I had to return my engine...

Rear main bearing

Hello all. When i changed the engine oil today on my 2010 Retro did i find a piece of metal on the oil plugs magnet. It is not from a gear, more like from a ball cage in a bearing. The oil had no visible contaminations and i could not find any other pieces of metal in the oil, i will remove the sump...

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.

"Big Beemer Boxer" That's cute.

Why 2300cc?

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 ...
