Re: Rusty/Pitted Exhaust Pipes

High temp 'header' paint works fine. It gets nasty after a while. When they do just hit them again.

Re: Throwing in the towel....maybe....

The clincher was the surface rust from living beachside. How do I deal with that? I live within 1/4 mile of the Pacific Ocean. Keep up with what you can, and let her rust. If you've been 'one of those guys' who has to keep their machine clean... well, get over it. Unless you're not having fun with ...

Re: Sidecar from 1979 R100, $1,200 south of Chicago

It's gonna take a lot of polishing to get that windshield clear.
Just to speed up the process I think I'd start with some MirroGlaze and a 24 grit pad... .. . :wink:

Re: 2016 patrol fuel leak

New fuel pump in my future, maybe?
Well, before that, if you're up to it mechanically, I'd pull the fuel tank off and see what's going on. That's a pretty substantial leak.

Re: Front wheel Scraping

You should at least check them to make sure the 'end play' is snug. My rear wheel bearing loosened up enough that it caused the wheel to 'wobble' enough to really chew up the edge of the brake drum.

from the listing... If you don't know about them then go to sovietsteeds.com. You must be handy and willing to spend time at the Ural Speed Shop (aka Ace Hardware). You must also understand Ural Delay Factor (UDF) where you will NOT be able to get out of stores, restaurants or gas stations because p...

Re: Front wheel Scraping

As long as your brake works and your wheel bearings are in order, there is no problem.
Speaking of wheel bearings ... have you checked these; both for lubricant, and correct tightness?

Re: Alignment tips for constant 50-55mph

I dont have any straight pieces of anything long enough to find the toe in. Toe-in (knowing what it is) is critical... I bought a piece of 1.5" x 1.5" thin-wall square steel tube expressly for the purpose; you probably have a local steel yard (they often sell scrap at lower prices). Wood would work...

"Generally speaking"... Lean-out With the sidecar wheel perpendicular to the ground , my rig is set up with ~1° of lean out (meaning the bike leans away from the sidecar by ~1°).
