Re: What did you do to your Ural today?

For those riders that got the leather tank covers. Does it rub the paint off on your gas tanks? I think they look great, but wonder about wear on paint. Thanks in advance.

Re: What did you do ON your Ural today?

Loaded my 2018 GearUp on my new Alumna 6810H trailer and took it to the dealer to get the new tank put on (org one paint bubbled around gas lid). Also had a small recall on it. Hope to pick it up later in the week.

Re: Parts

Yea I am aware that most dealers will not mount tires you bought else where. I have a local shop 10 minutes from my house. Two years ago I tried to give then business on my F650gs. It ended up costing me double what it should. I then had to go back and fix it myself. The closest Ural dealer is one h...

Parts

I would like to order some spare tire tubes and other spare parts. Would appreciate to know your favorite suppliers. Thanks in advance.

Up till now I get all my parts from New England Urals. Very expensive.

Re: What did you do ON your Ural today?

Drove it down to gas up. When I took off the gas cap (learned not to use the key and/or lock it) I got a bad surprise. The paint had bubbled up around the gas tank opening. I have read this is a known issue. So because the 2018 GearUp is so low mileage I pop the gas cap on a regular basis to keep fu...

Re: What did you do ON your Ural today?

Finally got around to putting on the left foot box (from New England dealer). Really going to make a difference on comfort/protection for me.

Re: Ural Summer Gloves: Are they any good?

I had my first mc wreck at 30 mph when I was 14. Went over the handle bars and slid on road for a bit. Helmet saved my head. No gloves on so hands were ate up with road rash. That was 47 years ago. Not counting dirt bikes my only wreck. I never take off on a bike of any kind without helmet, gloves a...

Re: Rotopax fuel cans mounted ... prices added, video added

Hi all, for those of you that mounted these with additional brackets inside of tub. Did you have to buy longer bolts or were bolts that came with the Rotopax brackets long enough?

Re: Looking for jerry can advice

Hi all, hope the OP does not mind a few questions to the group on this subject. 1. Are you using 1 gallon or two gallon rotopax? I have both. 2. How are you mounting them to the sides of the car/tub? I see the rotopax mounts, but do you add any additional brackets for support? 3. I have the OEM 2.5 ...

Re: Left Foot Box Assembly Question

I decided to go with the New England one. It hurt to let go of that much money on something that took 3 dollars of materials. However, the guy that mention saving one from breaking his foot/toes got my attention. The NE one looked like it had better quality/strength. In the pics at least. NE had a s...
