Re: Need a Goldwing sidecar

If you can't find any used struts maybe consider new. Last year I bought a new one for my 2010 Gear Up for $19.99. Part Number is IMZ-8. 1034-20055.

Re: 2011 Gear up Carburetor Replacement

If I was going to replace the Keihins I would use 32mm BING CV carbs like used on airhead BMWs. They are pretty common and affordable. I too have a home machine shop and think it would be easy to adapt the BINGs to the Ural.

Re: Ural Relay Issue

I agree it looks like a good match. Terminals 85 & 86 are the control circuit terminals. Terminal 30 is power into the relay. Terminal 87 connects with terminal 30 when the control circuit is activated. Terminal 87a connects with terminal 30 when the control circuit is not activated.

Re: Few questions.

Valve clearances on infernal combustion engines as a rule tighten or remain unchanged with use. When a valve clearance increases it suggests there is something (carbon or something that got sucked into the engine are common) between the valve and valve seat or the valve is bent. It can help with det...

Re: Bent crank?

As a guy that has done some welding on motorcycle frames may I suggest you remove the engine and do the repair well and correctly the first time. It doesn't take very long to remove an engine and will make it much easier for the welder and probably result in excellent results. Additionally it will m...

Re: Sidecar Wheel Spacer

Short answer from me is nothing probably got hurt. Longer answer/story. When I bought my 2010 used I was checking it out and observed the castle nut was like yours, a few threads from the cotter pin hole. The wheel didn't have any play but I couldn't figure out why it would be designed like that. I ...

Re: Steel Rims

If you are going to try to remove the spokes and nipples intact instead of cutting them with a bolt cutter... maybe give each spoke/nipple a dose of Kroil Penetrating fluid. You can get Kroil from Kano Labs if it is not available locally. I find it is easy to apply using a small syringe and 18ga nee...

Re: Replacing Left Side Head

Maybe contact a good machine shop and ask them what they can do.

If you don't know of a good machine shop call a couple of local motorcycle shops and ask them who they use for stuff like that. If you get the same shop a couple of times it is probably worth a visit to that shop.

Re: 2006 Ural 750 will not idle

The main jet and pilot jet are located in the area cover by the float bowl. They are seated fully when correctly installed. The way a main or pilot jet is adjusted is by changing for a different size. The mixture screw located on the bottom of the engine side of the carb is adjusted for best but als...

Re: 2006 Ural 750 will not idle

My suggestion is to spray carb cleaner (using the straw that comes with the can) into each carb passage. Maybe wear eye protection and keep your mouth closed. : ) Remove the jets and the mixture screw. Verify carb cleaner comes out all the connected holes of the idle circuit. There are four holes in...

Re: Question about shocks

You don't need a truing stand. I've done wheels using the axle and some spacers (lots of washers would work) to take up excess axle length normally occupied by the final drive or suspension. Put the axle horizontally in a vise so the wheel can be turned. Tighten the axle nut to make it snug. You can...

Re: How's my plugs?

Curious why you are using the resistor plugs. Maybe that is what is called for with the ignition system you are using??? Although plug chops are very difficult to read with today's fuels yours don't look awful from what I can see in the pictures. For CV carb tuning you start with the main jet, then ...

Re: How's my plugs?

Can you give a short description of how you did the plug chops? Was the engine at operating temperature? Enricheners off? Sustained rpms immediately prior to doing the chop? Throttle position? Fuel being used, ethanol, octane, additives in use? Can you also provide the info on the plugs in use, make...

Maybe consider the noise the new "normal". If it changes in a negative way like gets louder, then investigate.
