Re: ethanol question

Windmill, your figures are correct. I erroneously calculated a 6% percent reduction a few years ago when I'd fuel my Harley. The Harley backed up my calculation, after reviewing my Ural logs I see that it's now closer to 4%. Yes, I keep a log of most PM's and maintenance on my machine (too many yea...

Re: Saddam Hussein's Ural?

Looking at the photos my guess is that it is a CSMI (Ural Importer from 1992-2003) Tourist with homemade bumpers on the sidecar and engine guard on the bike. The air cleaner has been changed to one from either a Wolf or a Cobra.

There's such a wide variety of "truth" about ethanol, we're all free to choose what "truth" best suits our individual needs, and ideology.

Re: ethanol question

This morning in my town E10 is selling for $2.379/gallon and E0 is selling for $2.729/gallon. Both are 87 octane. Even with the reduction in MPG it is still cheaper to run E10.

Re: ethanol question

I have used ethanol in both of my Urals, 2000 and 2007. Here in the land of corn we have a choice of 87 octane with or without 10% ethanol. Myself and a couple of other Ural drivers here in Iowa use ethanol almost all of the time. When Lloyd Colleman was still alive he would get the best MPG I have ...

Re: Side valve vs 650

The side valve has only about 25 horsepower compared to the whooping 32 horsepower of the OHV.

Re: Jumping Right In

I’m guessing that you must be from Texas. Are you thinking of having a bike shipped to you or going to get it yourself? A fly and ride is not a good option for a lot of the country right now unless you are willing to deal with the cold and possible snow.

Re: Ural changes/upgrade progression chart

Those are only changes since IMWA has been the importer. How far back do you want to go? 1993 when CMSI started to import them or 1943 when they first went into production?

Re: From Russia With Love Limited Edition

$19,999 plus freight and dealer prep! I remember when a person could afford to buy a Ural with out taking out a second mortgage.

Re: Throttle lock available?

Living in Iowa is probably a useful place to use one. You must of never been to Iowa. If you try riding a bicycle across you will soon find out it is not flat. Plus the wind blows all of the time. Iowa is flatter where the glaciers smoothed it down some but is still not flat. http://topocreator.com...

Re: Throttle lock available?

Many types have been used over the years. Everything from an o-ring that applies friction between the throttle and the brake/mirror mount.
