Re: 4 Urals travel 350 miles to deliver two tires, Bend-John Day

Great report and now after seeing the picture of your sit-down feast... I'm hungry.

My ex-Mom-In-Law has a ranch in Bend so I kinda know at least that area and region. Such great look'in country

Re: Ignition filter

Motion Pro makes a bunch of JIS screwdrivers and T-Handle tools. I have the T-Handle version. JIS is just as if not better than Phillips. Just gotta use the right/correct tool on the right screws and hardware. https://www.motionpro.com/product/08-0557 Have you guys ever seen the "Arthur Screwdriver"?

Re: 2015 Patrol PRICE REDUCED $7500

Certified Check and release the rig when it clears. Just because it's "certified" doesn't mean it's immediate (or real). Or CASH. Forget PayPal, Venmo, ApplePay, etc. with the exception being a small deposit. I just sold a bike a few days ago and by me the banks are still closed due to COVID. Only t...

Re: 2006 Retro

Sorry for your loss. "Ordered", so new? Good for you & Congrats. I'm an ADVrider guy on many forums & threads over there. Stick to the Hacks & sidecar area there and of course here on SS rather than the "Why You Shouldn't...". A lot of whiners who are not particularly looking for advice about a prob...

Re: Ignition filter

I hear ya Lew. Sold this old un-restored beauty a few years ago. 1966 CA95 (150cc) "Baby Dream". No regrets but every once an awhile it would be nice to take it for a spin. The market is very good for anything unrestored stock Japanese from the '60's & '70's. Dead on reliable still and why they put ...

Re: New 2020 Gear-Up Owner First Impressions

I also liked the "like flying a twin engine aircraft with the right engine out" comparison.
Never heard anything like that yet spot-on/perfect. I'll use that myself if you don't mind :)

Congrats and Ride Safe, Happy & Healthy

Re: Ignition filter

"Milton Berle of Soviet Steeds" HaHaHa, who/how many folks are actually going to get that? Too funny. I have a friend restoring (or trying to restore) a 1966 350 Sprint. Here's more of a racer version for sale nearby. Pricing might be more wishful thinking but I don't really know the market for thes...

Re: Newbie saying Hi

1) Arrange a test ride. 2) Reach out to those on this forum that might live close to you and go check out their rigs in person. 3) Read the posts here religiously so you can understand the great experiences of owning one, but also some the nightmares of owning one too. That affects apparently any ye...

Re: Any Options??

That's really BS, and the torque setting of everything based on the problems you were having should be one of the things covered and checked by the shop without you even mentioning it. No, they don't all do that and as I ponder a 2019 or 2020 upgrade purchase I'm just turned-off to hear this. If its...

He's gotta do something with the bike so makes sense he'd ask you if you want it :) Borrowed tools, in my g...

Re: ignition or kill switch?

Since you mention Gene/Holopaw in your original post... go see HIM and most if not all mysteries of your Ural should be sorted and explained to you.
If he's a "couple hours east" you are indeed lucky.
2007 was a very good year for Urals.
