Re: Security fencing and ANITFA

Don't feel dirty for making a bunch of folks crack up man. Speaking for myself I needed a good laugh.

Does that make them transsizeual? Or just "confused" ?
Only a "size-cist" or wrenchophobe would ask such a hurtful and outdated question!

Re: Carbs vs. EFI (Not a battle)

I have an FI Harley and it has been trouble-free. Installed a Power Commander and have tweaked the program to alter some running characteristics. So, I like the FI machine. That said, I believe that modern motorcycles on a whole are overly complicated with engine management systems and such. I love...

Re: Osteoarthritisis pain?

I also had an improvement when I excluded glutten from my diet. Of course this change coincided with loosing 40 pounds that had crept up on me over the years so I am sure that was part of it. Not as good a result as cookiemech but a noticeable increase in ROM. Of all the many supplements I've tried ...

He posted this first in Newbie then here. I believe the pic was a borecam thru the lower adjustment screw hole. Adjusters were removed for pic

Re: "Today, I was the dog."

Not long after I got mine I ran into a guy I'm guessing was in his 90s. Pretty spry and tough looking. He was talking about driving one in his youth. The look on his face when he realized that I was emptying the tub so he could ride was priceless. The younger lady he was with was not nearly as thril...

Re: New Owner, Used Unit

Relative newbie myself. The site, "My Ural" and the "best of" part of this forum will help you with most stuff. As noted above, you just have to check nuts and bolts occasionally and stay on the maintenance. If you get in a bind there are some sharp dudes on here to go to for advice. When I first go...

Re: A newb with transmission questions.

IDK if the light adjustment can cause shifting trouble or not but my neutral light has not worked since I got it. I know the bulb is good because it winks at me sometimes and occasionally even comes on when its in neutral. I just roll it back and forth till I'm in neutral and kick her over. I'm so t...

Re: A newb with transmission questions.

clutch releasing fully? Cable not frayed and adjusted? Wasn't it 2013 when there was a problem with the clutch arm bending? FWIW if the cable adjustment on my 2013 tourist gets even the slightest bit off shifting goes to $#!+. Its much worse going from 1st to 2nd than any other. Its a PIA for a whi...
