Post some pics! I have a 1997 sportsman 2wd, is yours 1 or 2 wd? The electronics are the 2 things that could hinder you, I have the ducati ignition and Denso alt, both are game changers, 1k price tag for both! Ouch! Ride yours and see how it acts, simple check at battery will tell you health of alt, check health of battery itself, as things happen address the problems, not a bad idea to have roadside service and stay within the coverage mileage till you feel warm and fuzzy! Good luck!

It had been sitting for decades when I rescued it from a barn.
I refreshed everything. Very smooth and easy starting. Still original carbs.
The original coil was weak. I tried another from Ukraine, but it was sporadic.
I went with a old Harley style coil (TM-62) and externally mounted to the engine case in a similar fashion as the flathead coils.
The rest was straight forward with no modifications.

Edit - now correct part number.

Welcome:

While often machines will share problem issues in common, with a Ural they can also diverge dramatically between same machine, same year one SN off.

Your engine, trany, FD could all be shot or they can go 100k.

It has to be assessed as it is and be prepared to spend some money. If you don't wind up with spending a lot that is a bonus but they did not tend to be reliable in that regard.

Hey Champion,

Welcome to the board. Most members are based in the US, might help to put your location in your signature line.

If it's the bike from Fast Boys, if it was local to me, it would already be in my garage.

The bike's going to require constant tinkering. My theory is Soviet design was to require owners to spend their spare time always fixing something as a way to prevent a revolution. Sorry, I'd love to join your protest, but I gotta get the bike running again.

Russian Garage will be a cheap source for some parts https://www.russiangarage.com

eBay and Google will help with other stuff as it pops up, and of course you can post here if you need something and someone can probably point you in the right direction. Just be aware most posters are in the US and the emphasis is 750's or the newer 650's and you'll get mixed results on advice for this bike.

At that price and with no registration (title) ? any reputable company would have registered it. NFC . Looks like another East European set of fly boys.
