Re: No Changes for 2021

It's great to hear about the improvements/robustness of the last two years. The bad thing is now I know this spring is time for a trade up. I remember the connection of rear end to swingarm could allow twisting and problems for the cT. That also no longer a problem? I have a GU. But no longer need t...

Re: New to me Ural

It's a good year. Mines been as far north as Ashville (from Ft. Lauderdale). Back roads 99% of the way. UDF all the way :D Even attracted almost the whole police force in one town who were fascinated by it. Got a great police escort after lunch and conversation complete with intersection stops and s...

Re: share your stories about Ural reliability

2011 GU. Has been very reliable, just burning through pushers. At 43000 km crank bearing started coming apart when I was 50 km from home on a Sunday morning. Still running but starting to make uncomfortable noise from the engine. Got me home checked the oil magnet and found chunks. Needed new crank ...

Take a look at Rex Specs for goggles, I went thru several different kinds that he wouldn’t wear till I found these. They are a little pricy
But really excellent. Fit the head shape better IMHO than the Doggles

Re: Monitoring the Wear of the Clutch Disk Teeth

# versurginc: i speak about the clutch disk teeth . When you write at 46.000 your clutch was worn, you speak about your friction part or clutch disk teeth. 46.000 kms great ... when you say you relube your splines every 15.000 kms you speak about your transmission splines. I do the same very 3/5.00...

Re: Monitoring the Wear of the Clutch Disk Teeth

Wow, that's really fast. I wonder if you just lucked out and got a clutch with really soft metal. Mine 2011 GU clutch went 46,000 and got replaced because the engine was apart for something else. The clutch was worn. But not toast at that time. I did do spline lubing at 15,000 km intervals with moly...

Re: New 2020 Gear-Up Owner First Impressions

For those rear drive bolts (and some others), it's worth learning how to safety wire. Drilling the nuts isn't that much trouble. Once safety wired, they ain't going anywhere unless you want them to.

Re: Looking to buy

+1 on Gene's. He's my dealer and I'm in Ft. Lauderdale. You looking for FI or carb? I've been thinking of letting my 2011 GearUp go as I'm just not using him.

Re: Missing Rear Drive Allen Bolt

Was running my 2011 to reserve on a regular basis when I first got it (trying to go too far all the time). The fuel cannister it came with was a lifesaver, but I supplemented it with another as I never seem to learn.

Re: Missing Rear Drive Allen Bolt

No idea on your years bolt/stud. My 2011 GU started loosening its bolts. Safety-wired the lot of them. You have to drill a hole in the head, but that's what a drill press is for! No problems since and it is a good skill to learn. :old: :fart:

Re: Engine knock

Nature of the beast for sure. My 2011 started a thumpy-knock at 46000km which was main bearing going. I considered parting out, but realized the cost of repair was way below value of vehicle on trade in. So got new crank, bearing, pistons, clutch (was about half-way worn, but the engines apart anyw...

Re: What did you do to your Ural today?

Replaced left side silicone valve cover gasket that got a bit overtightened in the rebuild. My left boot toe well oiled and waterproofed. But I'd be happier if it was just the ocassional drip. They really aren't kidding about the surfaces needing to be solvent cleaned and dry. Installed it once alre...
