Fact: BMW did not have their FI sorted out by 1985 as Robert claims.
You beat me to it. The Bosch FI on my K-bike is pretty crude but works.

Re: How much can these be ridden?

Look at my signature and you get a realistic image of what is possible beeing a hard rider in mountain range. It all depends on the attitude. I have been honestly a bad nut that connects handle bar with seat. If our country would be flatter and without daily "STOP and (go) BAKE" down town the story...

I wonder if someone just sez that Ural said that. Seeing they endorse highway speeds it does not sound like the factory. That said, mine rarely goes north of 55mph.
Still have the original push rods at almost 150,000kms, but don't push it over 50mph (motor doesn't like it).

New spokes tend to loosen up. I checked mine monthly for the first few thousand Km. I always found loose ones, until I didn't.
+1 and I still check mine weekly.

TBH if they're that old I'd just get new ones.
Especially at that price.

overfilling the sump in order to provide additional cooling
I don't see how that would work, except maybe taking longer to reach temperture :?
