Re: Finally an owner or who’s crap did I just buy

Also, 2WD shaft failure (usually from the u-joint failing) doesn't mean you are stranded, in most cases you can just use a rope or strap to keep the free end up off the snowmen supports and limp home. That for example looks like this: Happend so 01/05/2019 in the middle of nowhere 10km away from th...

Re: 2013 Ural "T". 20,000 km.

Re: Power arc spark plug gap.

I may tell about MMO that there is one thing I do feel disgusted about. As pretty the bottles are, they definitely are designed to break with the easiest movement. Only this week on my way from NC to KY 2 bottles broke right into suitcase and tool and workbench where I needed tidiness. Only way to r...

Re: BMW GS question

A while ago I had a talk with the best BMW mechanics in town. He told a few things from several model years I wasn't expecting. But as I am no friend of bikes that change from year to year I didn't put any attention. The manner to strip the boxers now down to a can-can girl balancing on one leg and ...

Re: Don't be that a$$hole!

Yesterday a internist doc sent the advice with a video:
"9 out of 10 urologists advice that the frequency at which the bladder gets evacuated might save your life from the risk of stones."

Re: I'm in! Finally got a rig and have questions

A pair of "tall" mirrors is the first thing on my list. Kawasaki KLR650 mirrors are taller and fit right away. I can pull up on the driver's side cable (sheathing) on top of the carb about 1/4" before feeling any "resistance". The passenger's side cable has resistance immediately upon pulling up on...

The driver of the truck took the sharp turn way too fast and it slid off the lowboy trailer.
This marble was dropped by mother nature. :P

Re: Well, this is new and different

Congratulations. Jim Pettiti (rip) was asking in his days for an idea of a left s/c 2WD. Somebody came up with it... a hollow axle with internal bearings... good way to go. Now, those wheel hubs surely will not be interchangeable all way round again... Somebody to the front for fixing that. Soon we ...

Re: Thank you to those who help others on this site

Mattzahr, attitude is what counts and get back into the stiff Ural saddle surely did give you a good part of rehabilitation exercise you needed. As old friend Jose Angel says: "Everything happens in the head." Paint yourself that big grin in your face too, when J-A told about his last granddaughter,...

Re: Elio-oh-oh

The first moment I saw this thing years ago, in my head came up one single idea. A 1952 Messerschmidt cabin scooter with a decent engine would have had "a" change as collectable. But this ugly thing made to me the impression of a dead born child* ...a pot hole inspection device... continue searching...
