Re: Avon SM MKII date codes help...

So this thread got me going down the rabbit hole and I found this chart. It looks like it's geared for auto tires, but the codes seem to hold true for the motorcycle manufacturers as well. If you don't see a manufacturer listed, look for it's parent company (see examples below.) https://www.wfirm.co...

Re: Avon SM MKII date codes help...

Oh another thing, "ATY2SM" is probably the DOT identifier for that specific tire. The code is usually immediately after the letters "DOT." On the 6 different motorcycle tires of 4 different types from 3 manufacturers, all currently in my garage... My Kenda tires start with K. My Duros start with X (...

Re: Avon SM MKII date codes help...

Those tires are probably OLDER than 2004. Prior to 2000, date codes used a single digit for the year so date codes were a total of three digits. "JJY"- with the JJ being the Julian week (1-52) and the last digit being the year. So "414" and "424" would seem to indicate 1994 NOT 2004. In 2000 tire co...

Re: 2 into 1 factory exhaust?

DIY. It is a Ural, not a Mona Lisa. Certainly NOT rocket science. If you mean DIY the mid-pipe from the Raceway header to HD muffler, I agree. It's just a piece of pipe, a couple of bends and muffler hangers, easy. If you mean DIY the "Y-pipe" itself, that is a little more difficult for most folks....

Re: 2 into 1 factory exhaust?

Buy just the header from Raceway, right hand side, as that side gets snagged less off-road. Use some standard exhaust pipe (or in my case chain link fence pipe) to run back a bit, using either the stock exhaust hanger and/or custom bracket to hang a Sportster muffler. This is one of the lowest profi...

Re: Please help me decide what to do with my rig

Hi Noah, I feel your pain. Sometimes Ural ownership can be a real chore. Without a garage, tools and know-how, it’s especially difficult. If you don’t have the drive, time or ability to repair it, parting it out isn’t a good option, as others have mentioned it’s more work than fixing it. Non-running...

I think that without a doubt 2wd will get you farther than 1wd. About another 1/2 mile until you are well and truly stuck. ☠️😎
That’s when you pull out the drill winch or ride with friends.

Re: Pancake Flathead Sheet Metal Screws...

If you're talking old school straight blade sheet metal screw, I'd agree. Haven't had use for one in a long time. However, the self-drilling variety for use with a screw gun... I use them frequently. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Teks-8-x-1-2-in-Zinc-Plated-Steel-Phillips-Truss-Head-Drill-Point-Lath-...

I almost bought one once but I really don’t have a need, unless I get a forge, tongs, hammers...then I have a whole ‘nother hobby I don’t have space or time for.
