Re: Ural ownership opinions

My 2007 has been fairly reliable, most issues have been self inflicted, and it takes some tinkering.
My 2018 has been completely reliable, doesn't require any tinkering beyond routine maintenance, and is easier to maintain than the 2007.

Re: cT K28 Tire Wear

I thought for the price the k28 should have lived much longer. still exploring options I've been looking for the perfect Ural tire for 14 years, to date the best handling and longest lived has been the K28. I ride every day and use my Ural as my full time transportation. Other tires I have run. ___...

I still have to see if I can tire iron a tire off. I could at one time but that was before the rupture disk.
The K28s are tough without question, but doable with 2 sets of irons, and plenty of soapy water.

With my arthritis, I'm starting to think a tire changer might be a wise investment.

Re: cT K28 Tire Wear

FFS, put gas in it and ride it :lol: My thoughts exactly! I don't keep track of tire wear, as I know it's not good, as I ride the ever loving pi$$ out of mine. I buy 307s in bulk and change them myself at home. For reference, I don't think I get more than 1500 miles on my pusher. I used to do the c...

Re: question on the Ural "Donut"

Side note ... Anybody ever give you any flak about parking in handicap spots? They don't see the little wheelchair on the plate. I get the fish eye all the time, especially when wearing my "big boy" pants instead of the usual summer shorts, hiding the prosthetic and assorted scars. If I get any ver...

Re: cT K28 Tire Wear

FFS, put gas in it and ride it :lol: I have to be able to pay for it as well. A tire ever 4 thousand is not a good thing. Some of remember the good old days of Uralshana tires where one was really lucky to get 1500 miles out of a pusher, some would burn through them in less than 1000 miles. On the ...

Re: New GPR 2-into-1 right exit high mount stainless exhaust

I can only imagine the total cost to get those bought and shipped to the U.S., Barry . exhaust-system-for-ural650-chrome.jpg Around $500 shipped. They can provide cheaper shipping upon request. I think Ural dealers might be able to special order them through IMWA too. They're a better quality muffl...

Re: Don't have a Fuel Filter

9 years to the day of Ural ownership, no filters on my carbs. Never had a fuel/carb issue. One bad batch of gas can change your mind. Been there, done that. At least float bowls allow you to get to it, FI? Its going to go right through. This is what I have in mind, I would prefer a full bowl setup ...

Re: cT K28 Tire Wear

This is what my K28 pusher looked like when I took it off the other day at 9925 miles (15880 Km). Just for comparison with a Duro 308 I would get around 2800 miles (4500 KM), or with a Hiedenau K37 3500 miles (5500 Km).
