Re: The big trip

Well, I am glad to hear you are in a good place and healthy. It sounds like they got on top of it.
Have you been able to make any progress on the sidecar bushing?

Re: Steering Damper

I just installed one of the cheap generics, and I am happy so far with it.

Re: What did you do to your Ural today?

I finally got around to my 17,500km maintenance. The bike has been sitting mostly since November because we have been trying to sell our home, and getting it out requires moving things around and making a mess. With temps back in the 60's, it's time to get it back into shape. For some reason, the en...

Re: What did you do to your Ural today?

I was perplexed at the source of the oil on the front of the engine. Weird air vortex? I will say that with no leaks on mine, I have the same issue after long, hot, or higher speed rides. Even if I never get oil on outside of the filter housing, it still looks like I did. Sometimes it is heavy, and...

Thanks! The two kits arrived today, they appear well built.
I said it before, but I am really interested in this. Please let us know how it turns out. Maybe the next time I come down that way, we can meet up and I take a look after you get it installed.

Re: Have to rev engine while in 1st to prevent it from stalling

+1 Maybe someone with real past experience can tell what are the consequences after a hydrolock. And how many of us still ok after a hydrolock? Is there anyone still got away with no engine rebuild? I have hydrolocked 6-7 times. 3 of them were after I mashed it with the starter. :( I have about 3,0...

Triannual fill. This isn't all of them, but...Ural.

I likes me some stabilized back stock.
It's amazing how you find uses for this over a year. Always good to have some back stock sitting around.

Re: Excessive Chassis Vibration

Makes sense, in a Ural sort of way. I was told the U-joints pretty much handle the non-straightness of the shaft.

Oddly enough, it did occur to me to jack it up and run in 2WD to get a baseline . . .
Are the newer ones straight?

Re: Excessive Chassis Vibration

In case you look at your new rig in similar fashion, others have noted (including Mr. Cob) that almost all the 2WD shafts are not straight. I bent mine straighter, but not totally straight. I did not have a vibration issue before, and it didn't change my riding in anyway after. Just fewer people sto...

Re: Have to rev engine while in 1st to prevent it from stalling

It does sound like you are having some running issue based on your last start up. Going back to your OP, I have had mine almost stall under similar circumstances. I had the idle set too low, and my clutch was not adjusted properly. When I came to a stop and pulled the clutch lever, the improper adju...
