Electrical short adjacent to 2016 fuse panel

All the marker lights on my 2106 GU stopped working almost immediately after purchase, consistently blowing the bottom fuse on the fuse box. Ah, a short! But where? After troubleshooting the wiring for the culprit every which-way, and ready to take the outfit back to the dealer 156 miles away, I did...

Re: Ural parts for sale

Do you have the grab bars that go under the passenger tractor seat and attach to the fender and shocks?

Re: Swap - tractor seat for luggage rack

Do you have the grab bars that fasten to the rear fender and shock stalks below the tractor seat? I need one of these.

WTB: grab bar attaching below rear tractor seat

I'm looking for one of those passenger grab bars that attaches to the fender and shock mounts below a rear tractor seat. The Urals with rear tractor seats come with a pair of these, on on each side. I just need one for the left side of my outfit.

Re: My First Ural - 2012 M70 in San Jose, CA

My GU came with a short stalk on the front left turn signal, so I just switched it with the longer stalk on the left rear. Simple 10 minute job! And the longer stalk is right at home on the front, still well inside the handlebars, and now just below the Driving lights I installed.

Re: Ural Barkbusters - Video

I just researched this! A wonderful, but out-of-this-world expensive product: more like $139 - $149 plus shipping for the special edition ones with URAL logos, like on the video. (Did I need to say "ouch!") I inadvertently found out out that the dealer wholesale price is about $89, still a lot of po...

Re: Epic Ural North: Alaslka to Maine to Washington

Take a gallon of fly dope, one of those electrified tennis racket fly-swatters, as well as a bug net to go over your face, with you! Last summer my wife and I went from VA to BC and across Canada to Labrador and Newfoundland, via northern roads, including the Trans Labrador Highway, and back via Nov...

Re: Anyone climb Mt. Washington?

I've climbed Mt. Washington and skied Tuckerman's Ravine a number of times. Been to the top on the Cog Railway a couple of times to boot, back when the railway cars were pushed up by a little steam engine locomotive (now they use Diesel engines...) - but never have I driven up on the Auto Road. Doin...

Re: Winter Electrical Work

Here's a handy little fuse block that attaches directly to the positive terminal of the battery. It's possible to put a 90 degree bend in the piece that attaches to the battery, so that the fuse block will lie on its side on the front side of the battery. Voila! - the fuses are readily accessible, a...

By any chance does this beautiful rig have the emissions stuff on it that would make it able to be registered in Kalifornia?
