Re: I'm in! Finally got a rig and have questions

Welcome Roland, It is a clean bike for a 2003. It is a shame about the starter being gone. My carb bike had CVKs so I am no help there. I don't have personal experience but I hear those air filters don't like rain. Anyway it has good bones as they say. Keep that front brake adjusted properly and thi...

Re: 2020 Gear Up in the house

Beautiful rig and you live in great Ural country. You are also close to the Blue Ridge Parkway. That is my favorite Ural highway.
I hope you have many fun miles on your rig.

Re: Replacing a gear

I know when my transmission kicked out of third gear under power, it was because I rounded off the dogs when I missed a shift into third.
Of course I could have misunderstood what you meant by slipping.

Re: Replacing a gear

It could just be the dogs on the slider or it could be the dogs, the slots on the gear and shifter fork wear. It will need disassembly to be certain.

Re: Clutch Alignment tool - Dorman 14519

I took the Volvo tool and chucked into a drill press by by the tip. The I clamped the tool in place and drilled the center of the tool with a bit just fit the pilot hole. Then I cut off the tip of the tool, put the bit back in the center and epoxied the bit in place.

Re: For those of us who are bi-boardal

tgtrotter, yes that is the site. It has been down for weeks but they moved it and now it looks different but it seems to bel the go to site for older Urals.
There are several very knowledgeable people there who don't post here.

For those of us who are bi-boardal

The Russian Iron Board is back up. They aren't nearly as active as this site but some of the members there never made the move to this site and I like to keep up with them.

Re: New owner

Welcome Mike,
I know diddly about 650s but for advice and parts on 650s, Terry Crawford in Michigan and Gene in Holopaw Florida are hard to beat.
I do know the major no-no on 650s is don't lug the engine.
I hope you have a great time with your bike.

Re: 2018 gear-up won’t shift out of 4th gear....

As a first guess I would think the rivet on the shift pawl gave up. I wasn't too impressed with the ruggedness of the construction when I had my transmission apart.

Re: Essentials for a long road trip?

Thanks sagerat, I had forgotten the spare oil, Besides the quart of oil for the engine/transmission, I also carry a small bottle ( 5 or 6 ounces ) of final drive oil. DON"T Forget to check the final drive oil mornings before you move the bike. After moving the bike, getting an accurate reading is to...

Re: First Time Caller East of the Rockies. . .

If there is a large parking lot available, you can teach yourself most of the skills taught in a course. The Yellowbook ( downloadable ) has a course layout and instructions, You can get small traffic cones at Dollar Tree and other cheap stores. You can probably lay out a course for $20 or $30.

Re: Essentials for a long road trip?

I am not the best source for 2018 information but I can add a few of what I consider essentials for a long trip. Good tow insurance with flatbed hauling and a good credit card. A good small jack. I like to carry a drive donut. Practice changing the drive tire just to make sure you have all needed to...

Re: I need help with an electrical issue.

You can get a wiring diagram off the Ural website. It is a royal pain but you can use an ohmmeter to trace the wires ad make sure which are which. It is probably easier to do this if you remove all light bulbs and relays so you won't read through the lamps or relay coils. Urals aren't known for reta...
