Re: KMZ Dnepr600 Trailer Acquisition

How's this coming along?
Or the 650 rebuilds?

Re: Can't throttle up. Or loses speed.

I would definitely recommend switching to premium, 91. You can ask around and the other riders hear can tell you what happens if you don't.

Brand new tires can also cause a shake until the tire flattens out.
So can completely worn out ones. :lol:

Re: Head shake...

You ride a M70. If you rode a GearUp off-road at all, you would be on my side of the fence. I'd wager money on it. I am not trying to change your mind as your experience is your own. I will say that I have ridden some trails and been off-road in situations that would cause people to find religion. ...

Re: Cylinder Head seals

Looks like normal surface wear. Agree, the seals are cracked but don't look too bad (the cracked edge is a face flange and doesn't really do the sealing - that is the job of the inner sleeve) . I don't think the surface oil in your photo is coming from the pushrod seals - you have a problem further...

Should the shifter be smooth to move between stops while in first gear?
Mine always grab a bit. I wouldn't call it smooth. Ever.

Re: Oil in Cylinder? - Crankcase Full of Gas

Thanks for the input fellas. I put everything back together and tried to reuse the gaskets, but it looks like it's leaking at the cylinder base. So, I'll order a new gasket for that, a head gasket, and a set of valve cover gaskets. I was able to clean up the piston head before assembling too.

Re: Oil in Cylinder? - Crankcase Full of Gas

I was able to get a prybar on a side fin between the case and break the seal. From there, it did slide right off.

I would start by freeing the two turn buckles and allow the pusher to list out away from the tub. It should give you some more room to work.
Just a guess on my part, I've been fortunate to not be in your situation.
I actually have it leaned out. The cylinder is just really stuck on the block.

Re: What did you do to your Ural today?

Started tearing down the right jug after a small issue (filled the engine with gas).

Trying to figure out how to get the cylinder off. It is really on there.

Re: Cylinder Removal - Stuck/Hard to Remove

I haven't had trouble removing cylinders. Sometimes just a tug and they break loose. If not I've used a dead blow mallet with a resin head to gently tap the cylinder until it separates from the base gasket. If you're still having problems with it, check out Gobiums Lemoto site. In the tools section...

Re: Cylinder Removal - Stuck/Hard to Remove

My 650 after nuts removed cylinders came of easily after light taps to break loose from gasket, reason for removing cylinders? Motor froze up? Maybe shoot some PB blaster to free rings or piston that might be hung up on cylinder, other wise wordem wedges at base a good idea See my post here: https:...

Re: Cylinder Removal - Stuck/Hard to Remove

I had to remove the studs on mine. The studs aren't in super-tight, but once they are all removed I was able to pull them off with a lot of effort. My base gaskets seemed to almost glue the cylinder to the block. Took lots of scraping with a plastic razor to get the gasket material off the block an...
