Isn't Ushanka hat the necessity? :)
My thoughts too! I can use the hat even when not riding. Like, probably every time I go outside in the cold.

I have a set of Ural winter gloves that I’m looking forward to trying this winter.
How do they feel? Do they provide more dexterity than a regular winter glove? I have just been using a snow glove, and my hand kind of slips in the glove when twisting the throttle.

Re: Birthday Ural Shop Poll: Help me pick!

I voted for winter gloves. They're able to provide cross-seasonal use that a purely summer-weight glove can't do. I should have mentioned that I do have a 3 season Ural glove that is not offered anymore, and they have been awesome. Your hand sweats in them over 80 and starts freezing around 40. But...

Hey Buddies,

125 main and 38 pilot are good for Denver.
I agree with the 125 main jets. I live at the same elevation in Wyoming and found going up to 42s to significantly help take off power. However, 38's do work just fine.

Re: 2013 patrol newb question (low torque?)

It sounds more like you are not in 1st gear. Do not slip the clutch a lot, or it will ruin it quickly.
If you really are in 1st, then yes, it could be a rich condition either from jetting or dirty air filter.

Re: B-17 crash 7 dead more hurt.

Several news reports quoted others as saying he was probably the most experienced B-17 pilot currently flying. It is an 75 year old behemoth. Like someone said; a crap shoot.

I just noticed the coloring on the flywheel. Are they still steel? It looks mighty shiny.

Re: Long trip Preparation advice

Is there someone who has a list of the parts that might likely fail in this scenario? Ie, splines, etc to replace? The "splines" are part of the clutch plate. So if you set aside a clutch pack, that should be all you need. The splines move along the input shaft of the gearbox. That rarely needs rep...

Re: What did you do to your Ural today?

Any idea on how to remedy a valve not seating/sealing? The only two techniques with which I am familiar are a valve job ( 5-angle, 3-angle, or whatevz ) and valve lapping. I've lapped my own valves, but I paid a machinist to perform a valve job. Thanks! I had to look up what those were. :lol:

Re: What did you do to your Ural today?

What would be causing this? Left side intake valve not fully sealing? Maybe some combustion gas blowback? That was my best guess too. Since I am not as familiar with the internals and flow as others, I wanted some opinions. Any idea on how to remedy a valve not seating/sealing? This may be a cheap ...

Re: Long trip Preparation advice

A clutch kit is quite expensive - how long do they normally last in general? Ie. How many miles under normal wear and tear, or under heavy load? Honestly, Whatever Fran got is what you will likely get. There is not much, if any, difference in the the clutch between his and yours. He meticulously br...
