I machined the adapter for my 2002 Tourist. Cross-over pipe is located just forward of the oil pan drain so no interference. Great mod, inexpensive filters available and easy to change.
My 2013 GearUp cross-over pipe interferes and I'd worry about possibility of heat transfer to the filter. I think the newer style timing cover is a better option. The spin-on adapter also makes adding an oil cooler easier. Here's a link to Gobium's video that might add some info.

I think I'm still SOL with my 2006 Tourist and the placement of the crossover pipe. I took some measurements and the crossover does not give me the clearance for even the shallow oil filter. Gotta stick with the paper filters.

You could perhaps find a decent early 750 set with crossover mufflers behind the transmission. Or use just the non crossover headers. Should run OK without the crossover.???
Think about it, & ask around. you already have the adapter (which I really like having) It still may work out.

ANYONE ELSE HERE RUN WITHOUT AN EXHAUST CROSSOVER ? I'm curious also.

Rivers: “Pretty much a high end/rpm benefit which doesn't really pertain to a Ural motor or a lot of other twins.”

Have to agree. Probably cosmetic then. (?)

The "H" type of crossover increases the exhausts efficiency, and decreases sound on low RPM engines, and is beneficial to a Ural for its entire usable RPM range. It's the "X" type of crossover that benefits efficiency on high RPM engines.

Explanations of the theory are widely available with a quick search, and it has been proven to work on a Ural through the empirical testing necessary to attain the EPA certification standards. If it didn't, IMWA wouldn't waste their limited resources on them.

The Raceway exhaust 2 into 1 relocates the cross over, giving plenty of room for the stock filters.

I've been running a high compression big bore with no crossovers for over a year. Removed them for a spin on filter. No difference IMHO

Its been proven through testing under controlled conditions that a crossover provides a 3% to 5% increase in HP, torque, and efficiency, and reduces sound volume when all else is equal.
Given the variables encountered while riding, it's not surprising one wouldn't be able discern the subtle difference through casual observation.

So some pipes like this? Maybe worth looking at for the price. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Ural-2-into-1- ... 1438.l2649

Speaking from experience, those pipes are for a 650, and require cutting, fabrication, and welding to work on a 750. On the plus side, it's a Y pipe and retains some of the advantages of a crossover.

I have that set up.....in a corner of my garage.....as stated above, take some work to get them to work on the 750....they fit just right on my 650. also lost a lot of power when I got them installed on my 750 with the stock muffler

You're correct, it doesn't work well with the stock muffler, I set it up for a R75 muffler and it worked well.

First 2 into 1 adapted from 650 Y pipe, I forgot it didn't clear oil filter, http://www.sovietsteeds.com/forums/view ... 75+exhaust

Second 2 into one made from OE headers, http://www.sovietsteeds.com/forums/view ... 75+exhaust
