Re: Rusty/Pitted Exhaust Pipes

I'm thinking of having mine ceramic coated. https://www.appliedplastic.com/ceramic-exhaust-coating I don't know final price. The auto store has various exhaust/ high temp paints. You could do black but a silver/ chrome-ish would look really sharp on the BC. I had an exhaust for the Rocket 3 ceramic...

Re: Rusty/Pitted Exhaust Pipes

If yours are original 2003 pipes, they are chrome correct? You would need to strip away the chrome, as the paint won't stick. A wire wheel should make quick work of it. I have painted my stainless pipes with black high temp spray paint, it doesn't last long. They can be easily touched up, but I don'...

Re: Pre-2013 side curtains for sale

I had a Rich Maund Road Sofa, best seat I ever owned. (It was trashed from hard use and the inherent flaw of the old metal stepped seat pan, no fault of Rich.)
I have a Sidecar door curtain.

In both cases I got excellent value for the money.

Re: Alignment tips for constant 50-55mph

One more thing that general sidecar guides say that most Ural guides don't...the sidecar frame should be as close to parallel to the ground as possible when viewed from the side and rear of the bike. I find most people set the sidecar frame height based on how they think the sidecar should sit. Can...

Re: Alignment tips for constant 50-55mph

If you look at alignment guides for sidecars in general, not Ural specific guides, they square the straight edge to the rear wheel ONLY and ignore the front wheel. This makes sense, since the rear wheel is driving and you want to adjust toe to that. The front wheel may be angled slightly while actua...

Re: Banned weapons

I mess around with Nerf and Boomco dart blasters. I combined a Nerf Zombie chainsaw with a Boomco pistol and the bin on top holds soft "grenades." The ultimate CQB dart pistol. Best of all, unlike some of those other toys, I can actually use it on people. :twisted: I can shoot/huck stuff at Chad all...

Re: 2020 Fall Jersey Devil Hunt Sept. 25th-27th

I'd REALLY like to bring my 650 Patrol up there for this, but I don't know if I'll have the engine rebuilt and everything back together by then. Some of the guys say that 650's are nice motors for this kind of riding, they supposedly rev up a little faster. :moto: I plan to be there. Hopefully, thi...

2020 Fall Jersey Devil Hunt Sept. 25th-27th

NJ cases have been low and holding a flat line. Campgrounds and state parks are open. So I'm happy to announce that we're going ahead with the 2020 Fall JDH! The JDH is the largest East Coast Ural event centered around off-roading. Join us for a whole weekend of off-road riding fun and camaraderie a...

Re: NO FART 2020

Sorry to hear that.
New daily cases in NJ have stayed relatively low, about 300-400.
If this holds steady, we should be having a Fall Devil Hunt.
Details should be posting next week.

Re: Ural Shop offers steel rims for the disc brake Urals

Very interesting. The old steel rims had a flat spot where they were welded. I wonder if these new steel wheels are any better than the old ones? My stock steel wheel had such a flat spot that the front tire would visibly jump up and down going down smooth asphalt. I tried remounting the tire in dif...

Re: KMZ Dnepr600 Trailer Acquisition

Rich, if I could not successfully navigate the endless whoop-de-whoops sans trailer, what makes you think that I could do it dragging a boat anchor? It would IMPROVE your off-roading. The trailer acts as a drogue, keeping you pointed in the right direction. :wink: I think a lightweight trailer, wit...

Re: Horror Freight Jack Stands Recall

I got the email too. I don't have any HF jack stands, but I have some cheapies that I bought at Pep Boys probably 30 years ago. I NEVER rely solely on a single jack stand when going under any vehicle. I will use two stands on a corner and/or use some 6x6' that I stack box crib style as a "safety." I...
