Re: Terrified

+1 on Rougaroo's comments. You need to learn how to ride a side car rig before you kill yourself. Get the yellow book, some cones and head for a large parking lot. Don't leave until you have mastered it.

Re: Trailer a Ural on 4x8 Trailer?

Looking at that trailer I am pretty sure it is not going to work. A Ural is 48" inches from tire to tire in width, but you also have to count clearance for the cylinder head and the engine guard on the left hand side. they are not going to clear that fender well. Nice looking trailer though. Was pas...

Re: Trailer a Ural on 4x8 Trailer?

Correction on that. I have a 5 x8 Lowe's utility trailer. Not sure about 4 x 8. Will depend on clearing the rails.

Re: Trailer a Ural on 4x8 Trailer?

Question. does the trailer have sides like a utility trailer? If it does then you will need to use some boards to raise the level of the ural so that the cylinder heads and guards clear the rails. Yes it is doable but getting it on is a beyotch. I use a boat winch on a pedastal (Wal Mart special) wh...

Re: CRAP 2020 Cinematic Trailer

Outstanding job Andy. You have now been appointed the official CRAP photographer. Would be great if you can get that posted on the Ural Facebook page. CRAP 14 is shaping up to break the records. 44 rigs and counting.

Re: New Ural - options?

+1 on the Heindl brochures. I drove over 1,000 miles round trip just to get my bike from Heindl. He is a top notch dealer.

Re: New Ural - options?

You can't go wrong with Hiendl. Jon offers first rate service. When you go up there to pick up the rig, be patient and listen to everything he says. He is a wealth of information. In terms of add on's that depends a lot on your riding style and what you plan to do with the rig. Lot of cold weather r...

Re: 2019 GU dumped it's transmission oil.

Reread Windmill's post. That appears to be your problem. No. You could not have done that by trying to kick start the bike.

Re: 2019 GU dumped it's transmission oil.

Previous mention of a 2016 with a cracked transmission case. Refill the trans with oil and then maybe coat the case with talcum powder and you might be able to verify if and where you have a crack. Do not drive it until you get a qt of 20w/50w in the trans. Dave. I sent you a pm. Got your text.

Re: Rode a 2019 - impression

Got the rig yesterday and am now waiting for the snow to clear up before heading back from Ohio. Was simply blown away by the way the bike handled. Like going from a Fred Flintstone car to something out of Star Wars. Did not give it much of a test drive as the roads were a solid sheet of ice My expe...

Re: Thinking about buying a new 2018...

I am driving 527 miles (one way) to Heindl to pick up my new 2020. There are a couple of dealerships that are closer but I trust Heindl
