Re: increase hp

Drill carb slides first. Better throttle response. K&N filter in airbox. Check carb vacuum at both idle and around 2500/3000 rpm after each. Then experiment with either shimming or switching out the carb needle. Go for ride and check plugs after each step. Check cylinder head temps if possible. Ural...

Re: Theoretical way of improving cold starting of Electrojet EFI equipped Urals

Interesting idea. I'd be concerned that the gas spray would simply condense on the TB's inner walls without airflow carrying it into the cylinder.

Re: Jetting - Dyno

Try drilling out the slide first. Use the search function in this thread for details.

Without recarbing there's not too much you can do to get more power. With proper carb tuning you can shift the torque band (rpm range) around a bit to suit your riding style but, IMHO, added power is a pipe dream.

Re: Petcock vs Petcock

My prime motivation - tank does not have to be drained for removal. This plus a couple of 5/16" QD plugs and I can take a full tank off.

Re: Petcock vs Petcock

Here you go.

First is "off". It's a right hand petcock so "off" is inward.

This is the "on" position.

Re: Petcock vs Petcock

Manual shutoff petcocks on both of mine. Mostly to keep up the ages old habit of shutting off the fuel when I get off the bike.

Re: Choosing routes for Urals

Get a road map. Plan your route. Take your time and enjoy America. Can't see fudge from a superslab. Short hops on the freeway are fine, and sometimes necessary, but I avoid them if possible. I don't like being the darn near slowest thing out there.

For my education. What is the difference between dampers. My 2005 had a damper up on the handle bars. Is that a friction damper? My 2019 has a damper that sticks out from under the triple tree towards the tub. Is that a hydraulic?
Yes.

Re: Another Not Ural for sale

Worked maintenance on those at, sadly now gone, Geauga Lake Park. Used to wipe the floor with graphite paste to help with electrical copntacts. Bad stuff if the Mrs/girlfriend slipped. Stuff never came out of anything it got on. Also. Under the Dutch Shoes (inverted ride) was a great place for spare...
