Re: I Bought An RPOC Today

Glad you made it back and that it was a "soft" failure. I am right so seldom, I need to celebrate.

Re: Andrey Vinogradov plays the Hurdy-Gurdy

My son and his in-laws took me to an Irish pub for Sunday breakfast near Brisbane Australia. The band there had a hurdy-gurdy. It was a unique sound and I enjoyed it.

Re: rear brake light switch

I don't remember when they switched, but if the front switch is mechanical, you can replace it with one of the banjo bolt hydraulic switches. I have heard of a couple failures but it is a lot less frequent than the mechanical switches.

Re: rear brake light switch

If you need to source something locally, it is a 10 X 1.0 mm thread banjo bolt switch like a Goodridge PBL992-31CH
I got one from Amazon, but it will need the wires spliced to your plug.

Re: rear brake light switch

It should be a hydraulic switch on a banjo fitting just after the master cylinder.

Re: What did you do to your Ural today?

I glued my timing port plug in with RTV after losing two of them. It will still pry out when needed for valve lash checks.

Re: 2014-16 Ground lug location

Chad i think it is just a handy graphic for the schematic. I think the grounds are dispersed. At least they seem to be on my M70.

Re: New Owner just bought a 2018 Gear Up

Welcome If pulling to the right is the only problem, it should be an easy fix. Just loosen the clamp on the lower rear mount and slide or beat the tub frame further from the tug. Do it a little at a time until it rides like you want. Of course I am assuming you aren't riding on roads with a high cro...

Re: Mean Time For Replacement of Key Parts

As others have stated, the replacement interval depends on the severity of your usage. I will say that I keep a doughnut in the trunk. I also carry spare throttle cables and a clutch cable on trips. All of the other things on your list will visibly give you wear indication except the clutch and alte...

Re: Mud guards... or water funnels

I forgot to mention that the robe has no Nomex but doesn't really touch the heads and hasn't burned. You have to watch when you install to make sure that the part hanging below the carb/FI doesn't touch the exhaust. Once it is installed, it doesn't move. It is very hard to get a good picture of the ...

Re: Mud guards... or water funnels

Thank You Lofty but I meant I would take pictures of the robe laid out and give measurements. Snow Monkey, My robe just has a hole for the compliance fitting and the split in the robe to allow installation is directly under the carb/FI and is closed with heavy duty Velcro. The split has about 1 1/2"...
