Re: 07 and up floating disc...

This is more violent and severe than that.
Something isn't right.
I eyeballed the offset when comparing the old and new rotors and they looked good, but maybe it isn't the same?
I'll add that to the list of things to check.

Re: What is this?

My 2010 came with plastic bottles, they dried out and got hard within a year or two.
No thinner or solvent helped.
The bottled paint never matched very well anyway, it was a shade off.

Re: 07 and up floating disc...

I got a chance to do some riding yesterday and noticed I have a terrible shudder when I apply the front brake. I didn't notice it didn't riding around town and braking 25-30mph. But once I got on the road and was braking at 45mph, it was more pronounced and then was present the rest of the ride. I'm...

Re: New Finaldrive 2W

Know any other vehicle that would make it 40 miles with an empty diff?!? Tough sum-beaches... I've known Jeeps and 4x4's to go longer than that with no oil, been filled and then run for quite some time. A friend in HS bought an old Willys. It sat for years behind a barn, undriven. Mice nests in glo...

Re: No spark

It's a Ducati ignition on a 2011 unless it's been swapped. Easiest check, under the left cover panel is the ignition module. It's rectangular and about the size of a deck of cards. It should say "Ducati Energia." The front cover is pretty well sealed. Had mine off after years of off-roading and it w...

Re: 07 and up floating disc...

So I'm more than a year behind on this project, but finally mounted the new rotor. It fit perfectly. More importantly, the ring of the rotor is slightly wider than stock. While you won't get more stopping power, as the brake pad itself is only so wide, it should help with reducing brake fade. More m...

Re: Anyone jump their sidecars?

It is not uncommon to catch some air on the whoopdeedos in the NJ Pines. I've both been airborne and watched my fellow riders catch air.
Keep in mind on tracks, the jumps are constructed so that the bike is landing on a downward slope, so the bike isn't landing as hard.

Re: Trailer question - Tech?

My Aluma hauled several skids of concrete, placed on deck (tailgate removed) with a forklift for a project. I neglected to put anything down 1st trip so it gouged the deck a bit from nailheads in skids. Subsequent trips I put down two 2x4's spaced directly over the trailer frame rails. Handled 2200b...

Re: Skid plate for my 2019 Ural GU with GPR 2-1 Exhaust

One other thing, around here the most common obstacles seem to be logs and berms. A wide plate seems to help the bike slide over them easier. You might lose ground clearance, but anecdotal evidence would seem to indicate you don't get "as stuck." You slide off or can push/tug the bike off easily by ...

Re: Skid plate for my 2019 Ural GU with GPR 2-1 Exhaust

Just saw that skidplate, very nice! I've hypothesized that a nice thick piece of aluminum would save weight over steel. Let us know how it holds up. The fear I have is aluminum gouging over rocks. Those L brackets are stouter than any of the commercial plates I've seen. They clear the exhaust nicely...

Re: Plugging Bar Ends

Why do you remove the hand guards anyway? If You do any kind of off road riding and possibly even on road, there will come a day when you’ll be either glad you left them on, or sorry that you took them off. That little bar doesn’t block much wind in the summer. I leave mine on all year for impact p...

Re: 2010 Front Brake Switch

Here is a link that shows the specs. http://www.farnell.com/datasheets/1599249.pdf I'm thinking the v4nsUL is the one that will work. Push button, wire leads. It looks like all the replacements are 3 wire. No worries, just ignore the wire that is not needed. If I can save some $$$ and use a cheap sw...

Re: 2010 Front Brake Switch

Thanks Eric. I was able to get to the garage and drop the switch this morning. The switch says "v4ns-91**386". I think the two obscured numbers are zeros. A google search turns up a bunch of options. Apparently the "v4ns" refers to the switch shape and physical size. The other numbers I guess denote...

2010 Front Brake Switch

Well my search fu must be failing me, I get too many hits about rear brake switches, but I thought there was a thread for front brake switch replacement. I have a 2010 with Brembo caliper but I think the hand controls are Domino I believe. My micro switch is shot, no amount of cleaning/adjusting/jig...

I've been contemplating replacing my 05 R3 with one of these new ones, but I really like the old one and am thinking of just hot rodding up my old one.
Same here. I think I might hack the R3, then I'll have a dirt rig and a highway rig.
Can't see buying a new one.
