Re: Reverse polarity?

I considered this mod after seeing ReCycled's set-up.
I didn't because the only ones that had the clear lens in the bottom were sold in sets.
I couldn't a single one with license plate light built in.

Re: LED light issue

I have had wiring/switch issues that cause less than 12V, though I can't remember it being as low as 7V. Check for corrosion on the bulb contacts, look for knicks/breaks in the wiring, even pull the fuse for that circuit and check/replace, I've had fuses get corroded. I don't have a wiring diagram i...

Re: Camshaft bearing

Also, isn't there a seal between the front bearing and timing case anyway?
How much oil is getting splashed through the bearing if it has nowhere to go on the other side?

Re: Camshaft bearing

So do I have this correct...

No seals either side on the front cam bearing.
Keep one seal, installed to the "outside" so rear bearing can be splashed with oil but not leak?

Re: 2020 Turkey Leftovers Ride aka Black Saturday NJ Pines

I checked out the campground reservation page out of curiosity. The good news is there are spots open and a few other campers have already reserved, so if you camp you won't be alone. The bad news is that it looks like they want a 2 night reservation online and because the offices are closed, online...

Re: Carb vent caps ( moved )

We ride through a lot water and slop in the NJ Pines. Just run some clear tubing of the appropriate size from the breather fittings up under the seat area. This has drastically cut down on bikes bogging down in deep water. It's a sheltered space up there and I've never had the tubes suck water from ...

Re: Final Drive-Driveshaft Clunk

Billy G's page has nice pics of the order, techniques and tools. My thread has additional close-ups, internal parts changes over the years, etc. I wouldn't have attempted my 1st rebuild without Billy G's page. https://www.sovietsteeds.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=30207 http://myural.com/final_driv...

Re: Final Drive-Driveshaft Clunk

I'm late to the party but I know a thing of 3 about breaking FD's.... A clunk every wheel rotation and/or wheel not spinning has been a ring gear in my experience. Quickest check, pull FD plug, if there is metal exceeding normal swarf, you got a problem. STOP riding and get it trailered, you can F-u...

Re: Loctite 101

I use Loc-Tite on the Ural rarely. I seem to have more of a problem getting things loose when working on them than I do having them come loose on their own. This is probably a case of "ridden hard and put away wet." For most bolts I'm applying anti-seize to prevent corrosion and applying the appropr...

Re: 2020 Turkey Leftovers Ride aka Black Saturday NJ Pines

I got my alternator back from Terry today so unless I really screw-up the re-install I should be there. I'm going to check to see if any of those cabins by Atsion Lake are available for possible overnight. If not it'll just be a day ride. Looking forward to it. mike wex/stagewex Thanks Terry! IMG_5...

Re: Don't be that a$$hole!

On that same bend a dump truck carrying baseball sized rocks, took the turn too quickly and spilled his load all over the road. It looked like a load of potatoes all over the road. I came upon it on my way to work about 6am. When the cop waved traffic through, motioning to go slow, I was glad I was...
