Re: Idle variation SOLVED

Solved this by accident! I changed the idle jet from 40 to 42 and it ran better, but still with an idle that could be nearly stalling sometimes and quite high others. I bought a new carb sync tool - DigiSync - Highly recommended. Checked that the carbs were balanced, and they were, and adjusted the ...

Re: Carb Synch tool

MIke, Any chance you'd want to part with the broken Harmonizer? Not sure how extensive the damage is but would be interested is seeing the internal construction. Thanks, Bill The only damage is with the display, it sort of works. Now that I checked the 'sort of works' with the DigiSync there is not...

Re: Gentleman blades

Wow some serious metal on these pages. I sometimes carry a Swiss Army 'Picnic' knife that has a blade for cutting bread, a bottle opener and a cork screw. Just the sort of weapon you need on Vancouver Island, Canada. Just been on a Camping trip to Pender Island and Salt Spring Island. Anyone heading...

Re: Carb Synch tool

Just bought a DigiSync to replace my broken (dropped) Harmonizer. If I could have bought a new Harmonizer, I would have, but the DigiSync is every bit as good. Easier to read, and looks mostly drop proof. http://thedigisync.com/digi-sync-top-page.html I bought the least expensive 2 channel option. M...

Re: Hayes Manual

Many, Many hours with the good book Haynes. Mine always weighed double the initial weight because of the added grease and dirt on the pages. In the 1980's in the UK you could get them out of the library I could never understand why they were clean. Excellent books, wish there was a Haynes on a URAL. M

Re: Idle variation

A new issue after reducing the idle as it was a bit high and sometimes has a hint of dieseling when turned off.

Just rechecked the balance.

Just to make this more annoying it is intermittent.

Idle variation SOLVED

Hello Collective

Just wondering if anyone has been down this road before , not a biggie, but something.

When coming to a stop the revs drops on idle to nearly stalling then builds back up.

Any clues! Worn needles?

The usual suspects are fine, balance, timing, jets

Thanks

Re: What did you do to your Ural today?

Put it back on the road after its winter rest and new clutch. It went well, just had to adjust a binding rear brake. This is the earliest I have put it back on the road, it is usually a February or Early March thing. We are having a mild winter on the Island, 9c today. Poor Manitoba is down to -50c ...

Re: Replacing prop shaft

I think I just answered my own question.

In neutral, with the clutch in, push on the kick start, the noise is there, so it is something to do with the kickstart mechanism. Therefore I no longer am concerned.

Thanks for the help

Re: Replacing prop shaft

Thanks Jaybird I only have the donut on the transmission end at the moment. The swing arm, drive shaft, final drive is not in yet. It may just be the normal sound of a gearbox internals turning. There is usually too much happening to normally hear this. I just wondered if you could over tighten the ...

Replacing prop shaft

In the process of rebuilding the URAL after a clutch failure. As part of the failure the donut failed and damaged the prop shaft bits that fit into the donut. So when replacing the bit the donut fits into on the transmission how tight does the nut need to be? It cannot be tighter too easily as it is...

Re: '12 with 778km total on the bike....Ride home, now leaking from FD and elsewhere?

Common problem Search on venting the final drive. I put a brass 1/4" air fitting in place of the standard vent - made a bent coat hanger to check the oil level, then ran some fuel line from the vent up under the seat. Much better venting, no leaks etc. Picture and thread https://www.sovietsteeds.com...
