Re: Oxford Heated Grips Style Choice ? Others?

Very real safety concern; not with Oxford in particular , but 'all' heated grips. Report (BMWMOA member) of 1st degree burns on the palms as a result of sensed temperature (by the rider's hands) under very cold outside temperature. This reminds me of something I saw a while ago, probably a TV progr...

Re: Oxford Heated Grips Style Choice ? Others?

That´s in Trieben, near Hohentauern, Austria. The motorcycle rallye was held at the Edelrautenhütte, a mountain hut, altitude 1725m. https://www.google.com/maps/place/Edelrauteh%C3%BCtte/@47.438896,14.4303753,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x4771a231981a7325:0x220b3b98f5ece0ab!8m2!3d47.438896!4d14.432...

Re: Not Enough or Too Much Clearance.

My dealer checks them every service. Which is approx every 2,500 km, or has been somewhat more often because I've done more mileage than I expected in the interim (have to be booked in advance). He did say they often need readlusting every time, "because it's a Ural." Time before last however, only ...

So correction. I got three new "dowty" washers, and the ones on the plugs were the same. The new ones came in a kit with the head gasket and were labeled "crush washers" in the description.

All of them, new and old look like the one in the attached picture.
OK then! :thumbsup:

Re: That Damned Extra Part in the Drain Pan

Thanks, certainly the dowty washers are better. Yes you'd need a supply of new crush washers if you were going to DIY. I've had this experience with Moto Guzzi (flat aluminium) and BMW R-series, which were hollow copper rings.

Re: unbalanced TB cause holes

Someone else or a Google search might know how to check timing on the 2014-2018 EFI bikes. I haven't so can't really comment. Did a Google, nuthin. I remembered this, but is about how to find top dead centre, not timing per se. I believe it's by Alberuralque https://youtu.be/apQCoGOb1F4 AFAIK all t...
