Re: V.I.N. research

Could the V.I.N. be used to track down the original selling dealer ? Not by an individual through any public source. IMWA/Ural would have such records, but I'm not sure if they can, or would release it. Some states have laws restricting access to owner info, and Washington is one of them. Not sure ...

Re: V.I.N. research

Other than paint options, all accessories not listed as standard for a given model would be dealer or owner installed. The off road fuel map is strictly from dealers supposedly for off road use only, and never factory installed as it would be a serious violation of EPA rules and regulations. The onl...

Re: Any Options??

Jason Ray is the Warranty service contact; (425)702-8484 x 105 (I called to verify this number and got his voicemail). The number is the 'main' switch board. Be persistent. Persistence. In all of its forms. After a period of No Joy despite repeated phone calls and voicemails to Ural HQ, I found suc...

Re: What did you do to your Ural today?

...are spotlights useful? :? They're hopefully more useful than the OEM LED driving lights on the GU's hack bumper, the performance of which has left me a bit unimpressed. It can be the best possible option for additional lighting. If the spotlight reflector is replaced with a standard 5 3/4" H4 re...

Re: Driveshaft rubbing wheel

I wouldn't be concerned with the FD because of the wheel issue. Even though the design hasn't changed much, every component from the case on down is from mainstream suppliers now, and much more durable then in the past. The OE organic pads do wear quickly with frequent parking adjustments. Many folk...

Re: Removal of 2 wheel drive shaft

The GU has a larger step than the cT as there is more room for it. Actually the step is the same size and location, the GU just has a bigger gap between it and the fender. The fender sitting back further can make getting in and out of the sidecar easier for some. The GUs sidecar wheel being further...

Re: Has anyone used the M2Boxer EFI retrofit for 2014-2018 Urals?

Once pressurized, the fuel pump turns off. On the Electrojet system it keeps running, with the M2Boxer the 2018 fuel pump turns off after a few seconds. It also turns back on momentarily as you kick the kickstarter. The Ural Gen2 EFI, OE and retrofit kit also function like that, rather than run con...

Re: engine accelerates w/o using throttle

Another thing that really helps is making sure slack at the throttle grip is adjusted correctly.

Re: Photos showing 2020 breather vs 2018 breather

Does converting an early EFI engine to the new breather require a new cam with a star-drive end or will my 2015 cam properly engage the new-style breather? It will work with all 2014 and up rigs as is, nothing else needed. Its still driven by the pin in the timing gear. The previous EFI version is ...

Re: Driveshaft rubbing wheel

That looks pretty good to me, no worse than any wheel I've ever built.....maybe better than most. Some may be able to do better, but I would be happy with it.

And I'm really jealous of your truing stand.

Re: Which one would you buy?

Good for you. I have to say reading your thread here I wondered how a 2017 EPA cert. rig needed up in Nevada. When you say it was the Ural cert bike did you mean done by corporate in Washington? If so that is why the guys were saying "if it was done right" and if Sergey and/or someone else in that ...

Re: 2019 GU dumped it's transmission oil.

Correct me if I am wrong but I thought the 2015 or so trany was the same with some miner changes to deal with issues that showed up on some but not all? the basic configuration is the same, but there's been steady improvements in the quality of components. The 2019 having a splined shaft in place o...

Re: Cylinder Flooding

Sounds like you need to clean out the entire fuel system. Dirt can linger in the tank, petcock, and hoses even when drained.

Drain everything and let them dry out, then blow them out with a compressor.
