Re: Keeping sidecar trunk and passenger compartment Dry

I don't typically ride in the pouring rain. One day I was trailing the outfit 2 hours on the pouring rain and the entire tub was soaked including the trunk. Is this typical when riding? What do people do on extended trips to keep cargo dry? Yes. There is almost nothing you can do to keep the water ...

I actually had to wait for them to change the air filter before I left because the last person they loaned it to pulled a "Chad". :P

Re: pinion bevel gear lash setting

There are basically two lash adjustments: the pinion and the ring gear. The pinion gear adjustment moves the pinion forward and backward relative to the drive shaft and centers it mating to the ring gear. The ring gear adjustment moves the ring gear in and out relative to the FD cover and adjusts t...

Re: New Owner just bought a 2018 Gear Up

When pulling right, the side car needs to be toe-in a bit (pulls to the right sidecar needs to aim more toward the bike. Pulls to the left, side car need to aim slightly away from the bike). There are all sorts of ways to do it, most involve some sort of Rube Goldberg complexity with metal strips, f...

Re: New 2018 Ural Gear Up Owner (Engine Heat Question)

I’ve ridden every year in Yorktown’s 4th of July parade. It’s about a 40 min event. Temps are generally in the low 90s. IMHO, you don’t necessarily need gages because a Ural will tell you when she’s overheating. The engine will start running rough and you’ll need to keep the throttle setting high at...

Rode a 2019 - impression

The other day I had the opportunity to ride Karl’s 2019 Ural. When I returned from a short ride here’s how the conversation went. Tomcatfixer: “So, did you notice any difference?” Me: “Nope.” Tomcatfixer: “You didn’t think there was any difference?!” Me: “There was no difference because I was riding...

Might wanna check with you local LEO's Some states it's illegal to run the flashers when moving.
Thanks, I'm comfortable with law enforcement being comfortable with my intended use.
