Re: Parts

Oh, and I've got all the tools to change the tires myself. I don't do that anymore; keep 'snake biting' the innertubes, excessive cussing (Son, I mean excessive!), and end up going to a motorcycle shop that's happy to do the job! I've reviewed the Gobium tire changing video dozens of times; I think ...

Re: Parts

Tires (Duro's from Amazon, about 65 USD shipping included), inner tubes (Amazon maybe 10 USD); I have local motorcycle shop (not Ural) mount for 25-35 USD. All other parts from Holowpaw; very reasonably priced and usually ship next day, receive in three or four days. I'll buy a handful of oil and ai...

Re: New tool to work on the house

Yeah, where's the OSHA required toe boards? Just jacking with you. Our safety guy wrote us up for not having toe boards on some of weather equipment. Now we're in compliance but now have a elevated tripping hazard! Son, you can't make this stuff up! Nice scaffold by the way.

Re: Any Options??

That's not normal. You should get a little 'puking' out the vent even if it's only slightly too much gear oil. I recommend you call Heindl.

Oh, so it's just like working on a real big Rolex! I don't think this was the mechanics first rodeo!

Re: Back to space; Falcon 9 Dragon launch. Live Link

I don't think it's the first commercial launch. It maybe the first manned commercial launch. There's more than just the Americans and Russians launching stuff. I forget how many countries have sent equipment to the moon.

Re: oil filter replacement

The front axle is a reverse threading, very common on motorcycles.

I'm 68, but really immature for my age! Get one of those chocolate cakes from Publix, about twenty-five bucks, but, oh my! How often does your machine have a birthday?

Re: Date codes

Sir, Do you really need an excuses for a party? How about, yes, it's a Ural, Yes, I'm freaking crazy (why do you ask?), and I've survived over 100,000 km on the silly machine. Bottoms up! The date of manufacture, why I don't know exactly! But I'm told it was hand made by river nymphs' in the Ural mo...

Re: Ride quirks

I concur with RC20. Buy the CT, it's not 'rocket science' to maintain; when maintenance get's above your skill/comfort level take to Gene. My next Ural will probable be a CT. With both of my rigs, I've never used the 2WD function. I ride a lot but not adventurous roads. In 61,000 km I've used the sp...

Re: Ride quirks

You're within two hours of Holopaw? Boy, you're in Ural Heaven! The M70 would be nice: a fairly new CT would be great (if properly maintained; my next Ural will be a CT upgraded to 'GU or a GU, depending on pricing )". Bottom line; anything you get from Holowpaw will be correct and reasonably priced.

Re: Ride quirks

I've owned both a 2013 Patrol and a 2015 Patrol. Carbs and crappy brakes vs. EFI and real brakes. The M70 would have real brakes and the EFI system really isn't bad. The 2014 would have been broken in already (I agree with that 'bathtub' logic). If you're near Gene, you're fix very good for support....

Re: oil pan torque?

Per the owners manual, engine sump is 7.4 f/lb. Realize you're screwing into aluminum. 7.4 sounds kinda high. I also have the larger oil pan, really not necessary as the oil pickup can't make full use of added volume.

Re: Trusting the manual for torque specs

I have stripped out both a caliper mount on the drive brake, sidecar caliber, and valve cover. The owners manual says to torque to values listed in table. I've been told that the only correct value is for the heads! I suspect the solution is "snug" with blue loctite.
