Re: Noise in Gearbox (?)

The manual for my 2012 shows spline lube every 10k km. My Ural is new to me and I haven't done a spline lube on it yet but I have done one on my BMW airhead. It involves loosening the swingarm and separating the transmission from the engine by a couple of inches to apply the grease. It takes me abou...

Re: Recommendations for mechanic in Seattle?

So I'm looking for a competent, straight shooter mechanic in the Seattle area, any pointers? dale914, were you ever able to locate someone to service your rig? Have you tried Vallantine Motor Works?

This is also my first winter through Seattle (previous winters were in Idaho, Illinois, Minnesota, Michigan, Volgograd, Switzerland, so I am aware of what snow and cold are), so anything I need to know/expect? I'm expecting ...

I've been riding motorcycles for about 20 years, had my 3-wheel endorsement for while but have never owned a sidecar. I'm in the market for a used ...
