Black out powertrain at home?

Hi All, I am looking at a low mileage 2016 Gear Up, and the previous owner must have driven it in the salt and not hosed it down afterwards as the powertrain looks pretty rough. Have any of you ever done your own engine black out treatment? I've seen this done with small bike exhausts and harley cyl...

Re: BBK in Elgin

As much as I hate to see small companies going out of business, I wouldn't feel too bad about these guys going away. In September 2018 they posted an ad on Cycle Trader for a "New" 2014 Red Patrol. I called within a couple of days of when the ad was posted. When calling, the manager answered and whe...

Re: Listing removed - CL Listing - 2013 cT, $6000

Agreed that people should go look vs. analyze pictures. Too bad the seller only included an email and no phone number. As I said, they didn't respond to emails at all, and I sent my first one on Tuesday. I disagree that you don't need to respond once the vehicle sells. How long does it take to type ...

I emailed him a couple of times as well with no reply. I almost wonder if it wasn’t a scammer.

Re: Used Ural prices, what happened to the resale value?

Thanks for the warm welcome folks. Lofty: You say 300 miles would be a long day. I really only get a chance to ride my Road King on the weekends. Most of it is 4 to 5 hour rides on 2 lane roads up to 55-65 miles an hour, averaging 150-200 miles a day. Is this reasonable travel on a Ural? I've heard ...

Re: Used Ural prices, what happened to the resale value?

I am a newbie to the forum, and to Urals. I just started watching the black market section for a used Ural, and at the same time wanting to sell my HD Road King. I bought the RK three years ago for $11,800, the NADA at that time said it was worth almost $13K retail. I just went to the dealer for a p...
