Re: WTB- in Colorado

For whatever it might be worth... I've got a 2010 Gear Up with a tool box tank. The only time I've ever opened the lid is to find out what was inside, once. It isn't very convenient with a fine thread fastener needing a special "key" to turn it. I know you can fix it with magnets and such but I thin...

Re: What Spare Parts Shlould I Keep On Hand?

I've got a 2010 Gear Up. I keep a spare clutch cable, driveshaft u-joint, hall effect sensor, fuses, a compliance fitting, spare tubes and a tailight and headlight bulb, all stored in the trunk. Most of those items can stop the machine from moving or moving safely. Other stuff I keep on hand are the...

Re: 5-Engine Simultaneous Overhaul

Chad, Thanks for sharing your project(s) with us. For that cam shaft that has rust on the sealing surface, can you use a speedi sleeve on it? I don't know what a cam shaft costs and maybe machining the cam and installing a speedi sleeve would exceed the cost of a new cam. But since I don't know what...

Re: First Bike, shipping

I used haulbikes.com in 2018 to get a 2010 Gear Up from California to South Dakota. I think the cost was about $825 and took them 6 weeks. They were having a little trouble then with delivery times but I understand they got that taken care of a month or two later. If you are getting the bike from Ge...

Re: Driveshaft Ujoint

A bit off-topic, but does anyone have a part number for this ujoint? I went to grease mine and not only is the zerk missing, but the ujoint is loose as hell with lots of play. BriSco, The part number used for my 2010 Gear Up u-joint from Ural, bought in June 2018 is: IMZ-8.1037-05017, Drive Shaft U...

Re: wheel hub

I'll suggest that JB Weld is great for some repairs but helping to hold a brake rotor to a hub doesn't seem line one of them. Maybe doing a weld build up and then machining for the bolt would be a bit more appropriate. But if you are having to pay for that kind of work it might be less expensive to ...

Re: Water Injection Cooling #2

In the early to mid 80s we use to pour automatic transmission fluid into the carb while keeping the engine running maybe around 2,000 rpm or so. Heck of a lot of smoke created. We always did it on a hot engine. Lots of times we could hear carbon deposits breaking loose and rattling around the exhaus...

Re: Reactive link bar for front Brembo disk brake needed

I think those are called hemispherical joints. Maybe Hemi for short. My local ACE hardware has them in the nuts and bolts section.

Re: What is this?

I got four plastic bottles of paint from the previous owner when I bought my 2010 Gear Up two years ago. He said he included them cause they came with the bike but they were dry. I tried to revive one of the colors last year using thinner. A couple of days and no change with the paint. Maybe the met...

Re: Best drive tire for a "GearUp" rig?

I don't do tire threads, or oil threads either but... have you tried standing on the passenger pegs to move a bit more weight towards the rear?

Re: New Finaldrive 2W

Wildhorse Cafe, Bummer about the final drive. Do you have any plans for the damaged case, gears etc? I'm in the market for an inexpensive case and gears to see if I can figure out a way to get lower gearing. You're right about a Ural being a pretty tough machine. Back in about September of 1978 I wa...

Re: Running Issues

For the Twin Max... You probably already know but do make sure the battery is new/good. Also do this on an engine that is at operating temperature. Turn the sensitivity knob to least sensitive. Then turn the Twin Max on with the sensitivity set to the least sensitive and adjust the differential need...

Re: Running Issues

The test a buddy of mine did with his 2008 Patrol was replace the hall sensor. Not much a guy can do at home other than check to see if it is switching and it is if the engine will run. About a year after his first hall sensor went out the replacement died. We were starting a ride and had only ridde...

Re: Running Issues

Maybe check the diaphragms in the top of the carbs. If one is torn or leaking it can cause the issue you describe.

Re: Welding, Welders, and Welding Projects

One thing I've learned with welding is the welders that learn to weld on heavier metal often have a lot of trouble welding on thinner metal. Another suggestion from me is to learn how to weld on thin metal and learn arc/heat control. Once you can weld sheet metal with MIG and razor blades and alumin...
