Re: Pop-Bang and then fire!

Another problem I have is that all that white powder on and in it is from the extinguisher. So I imagine there will be no quick fixing. I have to clean that out. I carry First Alert Tundra fire extinguishers in all my vehicles, in my garage, and throughout our house. They are affordable, small, ext...

Re: Pop-Bang and then fire!

I'll hazard a guess the compliance fitting got a crack and that's why it started racing, air leaking in. The backfire to blow it off completely was just unfortunate. From what I've read here it's not unknown for the compliance fittings to acquire cracks. Not happened to me yet! Yup! This has happen...

Re: WTB ONE Black Rubber Armrest

My original name installation of armrests with the supplied Velcro resulted in the loss of one of them. Velcro obviously isn’t the best use for this. When I got a replacement I refastened both armrests with 3M Dual-lock, which will hold just about anything, yet is still removable. https://m.youtube....

Re: MIL and Too Much Gas?

The CA Emmisions stuff consists of basically nothing more than a carbon cannister in the gas tank overflow line, which vents into the air filter box. With a direct line ( sans carbon cannister), I wonder if topping off or overfilling your gas tank is resulting in a bunch of fuel flowing into the air...

Re: MIL and Too Much Gas?

Do you have the Cailf Emissions cannister on your Ural? If that gets flooded when the tank is overfilled , perhaps it causes a MIL code?

Re: New Ural pulls to right, tried everything, now what?

Note: if you set the toe-in at 5/8” measured with the rod against both front and rear wheels, your actual toe-in, measuring with the rod against the Inside of the rear wheel and dangling a good half inch off the front wheel, will be minus 1/8” !!!

Re: New Ural pulls to right, tried everything, now what?

No, the pusher wheel slightly out of line doesn’t cause the pull to the right. Many bikes made have this, including my 2016 GU. Many folks adjust the toe-in with the aligning bar snug against just the rear wheel, rather than against both front and rear wheel. And the toe-in that is needed can be a l...

Brake linkage rod at the master cylinder must have 1mm of free play, or else the brake pressure won’t be relieved when the brakes are released!
