Re: What did you do ON your Ural today?

Thanks. After a few weeks (that was a 200+ mile ride on Nov. 5th) I think my wife is starting to believe it too :)

Re: 2013 patrol with gearbox problems

2013 was a geed year/vintage for Ural. Don't back down (as Tom Petty said). Be worth it in the end.
Any Ural owners live by you?

Re: Cruising through winter

Nice looking machine.
Funny how the Outdoor Equipment Divisions keep to the same as the motorcycles, Red for Honda and Blue for Yamaha.

Re: What did you do to your Ural today?

Probably I should not admit to being an electrical engineer with 36 years experience. OK, I won't . . . :o HaHa, perhaps meaningless with the set-up on these bikes :) Just kidding of course. My eye's have been wandering the want ads at British autos and motorcycles lately. You'd think I'd have lear...

Re: Step by Step clutch cable replacement?

I've only done it once but there was no video available that I could find 4-5 years ago unfortunately. The new cable was a bit longer and since I was replacing mine because it was stretched it seemed like I was screwed. Found out via Terry I think that IMZ had changed cable manufacturer/vendor/suppl...

Re: What did you do to your Ural today?

That looks like a # 194 bulb to me, there are LED replacements, my brother bought a box and gave me a couple . Some of this try of bulb and holder are soldered into place . I think I'm going to be alright with these regular incandescent tiny lamps I had ordered before I went to NAPA and found the r...

Re: Older M70 Steering Damper?

Good choice. Any steering damper can and will cover-up a symptom of head-shake/loose front-end. I'd just automatically do that maint. anyway to know it's in proper order. I just changed my dash cover the other day, strictly cosmetic. But checked and tightened my front-end after jacking the weight of...

Re: Just a heads up

Rural King has a huge presence on-line. I order from them all the time. But we have no actual stores around me. Actually I've never even seen a Rural King store. Good deals and prices though. They are a Bruder Toy seller too. My grandkids love those big trucks. Present day version of what Tonka was ...

It's my "gold" (like that Tourist frame you are eyeing). But definitely someone else's junk.

Wow, that's a pretty severe rule. Why did they do that, something triggered? The Automotive Lamp Manufactures?

Re: Used Parts for Sale

What do they say... "one man's junk is..." I was walking the pup the other night and a few houses down from me there was a ton of stuff in front of a house, clearly for the garbagemen. The house is for sale and sadly the couple (2 kids) have had it with each other and getting divorced. They are load...

Re: SOLD!: 2011 Patrol w/ Upgrades

Congrats. I sorta knew that wouldn't last long, especially at that no BS price and up-to-date condition you kept it in. Nice deal without mortgaging the farm as they say. And Congrats to the new owner if they pop-in here? Make sure they do so they are able to continue to maintain & care for that bea...
