Re: What did you do ON your Ural today?

You probably rode past my "zone of occupation", I patrol the Cortland/Ithaca area. The ride down to PA and the Canyon is a favorite of ours every couple of years, didn't do much riding outside the "zone" this year. The weather was great last weekend and I got into the woods for some trail riding bef...

Re: Finally an owner or who’s crap did I just buy

I see you have a Russian rifle to go with the rig, very nice. Once all the bugs are worked out you will be happy and have a great time. :cheers:

Re: Used crankshaft needs rebuild, used cylinders "16 gear up

As stated above, sadly and unfortunately that crank is nothing more than sidecar ballast now. No rebuild possible. :(

Re: First Ural (2018 GU) - Looking forward to being an active member!

Welcome to the insanity! Looks like you have it under control and are enjoying the experience. Like for many of us the rig will become a member of the family. Everyone can have fun and go places you would have never thought possible. :cheers:

Re: 2015 EFI with Modtop mufflers

I have a carbed bike so I am no expert but it would seem that with the Electrojet EFI you would have to use an aftermarket tuning device to richen the low end air fuel ratio to go with the reduced back pressure of the Modtops. The airflow has increased but not the fuel resulting in a lean condition....

Re: Fuel draining from my exhaust pipe

The ethanol in the fuel will kill the rubber parts quickly. The vacuum petcock diaphragm and the float needles will suffer the most and will need replacing every couple of years if you have to run that type of fuel. A manual petcock would be a good investment to eliminate that problem. If you can fi...

Re: Re-Install Denso Alternator

When I did mine I did not use a gasket between the bearing housing and the block. The O-ring (rubber substance) on the mounting face will seal it and I put some sealer on the face of the flange that mates with the block and have had no problems with leakage so far, that was last year. :)

Re: How to remove 2011 Patrol stepped bench seat?

Use a 17mm box end wrench or socket with a long handle to remove the nut at the front.

Re: Final Drive-Driveshaft Clunk

What is the condition of the flex coupling (donut) at the output of the tranny. Look carefully at the rubber part and see if it is torn out and the shafts are hitting each other, if they did hit and are damaged they will have to be replaced along with the donut or your new coupling life will be very...

Re: share your stories about Ural reliability

Bought my 2010 Patrol 10 years ago this month. Left me stranded a block from home on the second day with a broken rocker arm. Warranty fix and ran fine for 18,000 klicks until the crank slingers let go during the warranty period. Engine rebuilt by Sergey and has been unstoppable ever since. Did the ...

Re: Brake lights stay on all the time

Did you check the foot pedal brake light switch? They are known to fail, disconnect one wire from the switch and see if the light goes out. Buy two and keep a spare on hand.

You may have to file or cut a notch in the fairing to clear the left turn signal bracket and allow the faring to sit correctly. :)

Re: Correct 2011 Patrol Rear Brake Switch?

My 2010 has the Holopaw style one on it. Be very careful installing it. If you push the white button hard against the stop it will break. Screw it in slowly and test the switch for function until it clicks the light on and lock it down. If it is set to close to the stop limit it will fail quickly. I...
