Re: GPR exhaust

I wouldn't think so. Most EFI systems have a broad enough map to compensate for a lower restriction exh or intake but likely not both. Call your dealer. He should know for sure.

Re: Powered Steer Wheel?

There's been a few vids on Ural 3WD conversions. That one appears a bit more functional cause as it exits the waterhole and gets to the road, it appears to actually be able to turn on to the road. Adding a front FD and front driveshaft "seriously" restricts the turning radius. Ones I've see in other...

Re: Sportster Mufflers

Don't over think it. "OEM" shorty Sportster cans didn't change much over the years. Pretty sure even the later ones are still 1.75" ID. Earlier Ironhead cans should even work.

Re: Sportster Mufflers

Keys to remember: Ural exh pipe OD=1.5", XL pipe OD and XL muffler inlet ID=1.75". Any machine shop can easily turn out some reducers. I think the XL cans I've dealt with were all from the 90's to early 2000's era.

Stuck/welded solenoid-relay would be my first suspect.

Re: First test ride after refit

2011GU? What's your current jetting...orig or? What elevation was it acting up? Stock factory jetting in the CVK's should be fine up to near 8,000 ft unless you're carrying a severe cargo load. I'd suspect previous owner fattened up the stock jetting or you need an overdue tune-up. I'd check your va...

Sorry no help here but my first thought was also very cheap/flimsy set up even by Soviet standards so suspect homemade/reworked screen from another bike.

Re: Let me see your Jerry cans

Saw this 20L can for a Dnepr on ebay. https://www.ebay.com/itm/tourist-kit-20-liter-canister-with-mount-URAL-DNEPR-k-750/153767876579?hash=item23cd4797e3:g:vHMAAOSw5eNd-3u4 Looks good, but its pretty big Caution: those are huge 5 gal cans and are very awkward/heavy to pour fuel from into a mc tank....

Re: Phase 1: Purchased Ural 2wd

Do you know if it has ever been registered in the U.S? If not, you may want to get it legal before you start putting money into it. +1 If you are in the USA and the Ural was privately imported here and doesn't already have a "US title". The above statement is VERY IMPORTANT before throwing parts/mo...

Re: Short sidecar windshield

Jaybird, in your case going with a Brooklands knock-off is worth a try. Only sources for them are from Uk and China. The Chinese make them specific for Chang Jiang tubs. Screens aren't as fancy finish wise as the UK versions. Polished alum -vs- chromed steel of the UK screens, but both work equally ...

Same situation I have, but I’m too lazy/busy to take the windshield off when I don’t have a passenger.

Happy trails,

Just loosen the two nuts and fold it down into the tub and cover with the tonneau.

Re: WTB light duty pintle hitch and lunette ring.

I'll third Jay's observation. They'll work on nasty rough offroad terrain at crawl speeds but NOT well behaved on any road at any speed. Bad plan for road use.
