Re: Gave my oldest her first driving lesson.

To the OP - sorry for my part in diverting this thread. Great picture, great fun. Enjoy.

To the nannies - safety above all is no way to live.

Re: Gave my oldest her first driving lesson.

Fu*k, really. Glad you were not in charge when I grew up. I believe I put it politely, how you practice is what becomes your norm. Its good advice and a reminder is not misplaced as far as I am concerned as long as it does not get to berating people. No, you are not going to prevent all crashes, bu...

Re: Gave my oldest her first driving lesson.

I would encourage Helmet and gloves use even at low speeds. Fu*k, really. Glad you were not in charge when I grew up. BTW, I had a friend do the same thing. Engineer, but he did not think it through. Airhead, putting around for over an hr in 1st gear. Rode it to work the next day and the burned oil...

Re: Filler cap cup thingy ?

Cool cap, but not original to your machine. Likely for an IZh; possibly IZh-49.

Translates as -
0.1 liter
2 of these cups
per 5 liters of fuel

Equates to a 25 to 1 ratio.

Re: Dnepr MT gearbox leak

Here is my worthless advise - - - Ride and down worry about this. Since you will not follow this advice, see attached picture. It is leaking from these 3 places as likely 2 more places from the inside (in the clutch region). The clutch actuator seal is an o-ring. The "auto clutch" plunger is an o-ri...

Re: Can't Keep Sidecar Down

It's not harmful to the rig. Broad strokes - assuming all have modern Urals. Actually, I agree with the sentiments above. Flying is part of the enjoyment! However, with a 2WD Dnepr, one must be cautious. The differential will cause the unloaded sidecar wheel to spin and bringing it back down to tra...

Looking good
I like the fender light!

I would try and rotate this fastener and have the bolt head exposed.
How far north are you in IA?

Re: Harmonizer

If you are wanting one, I'd get it now.
The redesign (both hardware and software) will not be a simple task.
Mark/Grok was quite an interesting and capable engineer.

Re: Year of mybike

Ah, the contrast of black on dark grey....
Well, who knows!

The frame is very heavy modified for chopper look.
The engine is an OHV KMZ (Dnepr) variant. With a hacky-cool alternator mod along with single carb mod.

Re: Cam timing valve adjustment type questions for dneprlover

It is pretty quick and simple to check TDC or as marked on the flywheel "ВМТ". Remove both spark plugs for ease of turning and use a dowel in the spark plug hole to determine top travel. This may take a few attempts and a helper, but with some practice, you'll figure it out. The "timing" mark "P" is...
