Re: No Changes for 2021

That is one I had not heard of. I have a cT and love it. 4000+ on it. ps: I am not fond of nylock and detest lok tite, I just tighten fasteners down correctly and no issues. There's a few threads about 1wd FD hardware coming loose, and retrofitting the extra fasteners older 1wd Urals had. https://w...

Probably should not even try one, sounds really awesome.
They're currently just a R&D project with no target date for production, so you're pretty safe.

Re: No Changes for 2021

It's great to hear about the improvements/robustness of the last two years. The bad thing is now I know this spring is time for a trade up. I remember the connection of rear end to swingarm could allow twisting and problems for the cT. That also no longer a problem? I have a GU. But no longer need ...

Re: 2020 Oyster Run Washington?

Personally I'm appalled. :-x

As a display of my indignation I plan to be a 1/2 hour late, and not be there until 10:30.

So there. :-P

Re: No Changes for 2021

Same question would apply to the driveshaft as well. Rather than upgrade you can map the power such that it does not exceed the limits of either unit. Since the drive shaft was upgraded in the early 2000s, they've been virtually trouble free except for the few years when the U-joint didn't have a g...

Can I ask what's the point :D as you might guess I don't. I've looked at it before but still mystified.
I knew someone who did it simply for the challenge, but unfortunately they practiced some foolish driving techniques doing it.

Re: Electric lean for Ural Sidecar on CL

Electric tilt adjusters have been around for many years, nothing new, or innovative about them. DMC sidecars, and freedom sidecars offer them as a standard option.

Re: “And now for something completely different”

The last year for duck, and cover drills was when I was in kindergarden, and civil defense lessons lasted for a few more years after that. I don't remember any specific mention of the Soviet Union, or any propaganda, just remember them being called an "air raid" drill, and what to do in case of an "...

I remember those, they sounded it every Saturday at noon. We were over 3 miles from the firehouse, but could hear in inside.

Re: Troubleshooting loss of power/throttle travel

Check this out.. I feel pretty stupid if this is it. After I got it apart and inspected it, I was puzzled so I looked closer at the one that wouldn't actuate all the way. I put a good light on it and I could see it hitting here: throttle-travel.jpg So I bent that little protection plate out a littl...

Re: Anybody use Double Take mirrors on their Urals?

Ram is a local Seattle company, and a customer of the company I work for. We have ram mounts in our trucks for the ELD, and handheld device, I also use their phone mount as I use my phone as a GPS. I have a ball mount on my M70 for the phone mount.

Yes, they're ugly, but they're robust and reliable.
