My 2018 has a couple of quirks I need to address.
1st the tachometer does not register.
And the seat is a real pain to remove.
And the battery is almost impossible to access unless the seat is removed.
Just in case you're not aware:
-The tachometer function is embedded in the digital meter, but a bit of wiring is necessary to activate this feature. There's a thread on the subject: viewtopic.php?f=23&t=49289
-The OEM allen bolts on the rear of the Enduro bench seat can be replaced with thumb screws. The latter are fairly easy to insert and remove when using the centerstand to create additional under-fender clearance.

-Yes, removal of the seat and a cover plate is necessary to gain access to the battery.
Thanks for the info. The dealer I bought it from said the tach is inoperable in the U.S. market. Guess I will send him the link as well!

I am sure if I get ever again a new bike from agency... or I pull it out the box myself, or I tear it down as soon the waranty ran out. What a crap custom of all factories and nearly all agencies to assemble a motorcycle without any lube nor antiseize as "assembly paste".
The "grease famine" is not exclusive to Ural. I also use Moto guzzi forums, frequently owners complain about no lube on NEW bikes. Of course they don't find out until later.

I am lucky I have good dealer. I think he has had to do all the lubes that it should have had already. Also electrical grease in connectors.

The main spline shaft can take a lot of wear. Post a picture. I replaced at just shy of 100,000kms. I’d be surprised if you’re anywhere near the amount of wear mine had.

Wondering if lack of grease on the splines may have been a factor. How many miles on the rig currently?

Fran has somewhere around 39.000km and it was worn simmular to those posted. Pferdinand has to pull a very large load. The friction plates would not move sideways under load. (on mine the wear was in the flywheel, but the main shaft of the old one was reasonably good, so we changed for that one.)
I blame all factories to assemble with "zero grease" respectively antiseize. I would have loved to put molybden paste, in its absence we used Chestertone 710 Copper paste. At least it gives some lubrication.

Yvonne and Fran are on the road again after a week of hard work. A bit soar and with a full brain load of learned things we all go back to usual. Yvonne and Fran head for Monteverde fogforest and I prepare my toolroll for Kentucky.
Safe travels for you Yvonne, Fran and Pferdinand.

No April joke:
..April first to Charlotte.
On the job next day for 2 weeks in Vanceburg KY. Then 2 weeks in Corbin KY. After that a few days off, or breath dust again right away in Minnesota and restart in High Point NC early May.
I hope to visit my old friend Medio Tico in NC close to Blue Ridge Parkway.
And if a foreigner may register a bike... i'd like another Ural Patrol 2013 with low mileage. :lurker:

Sven, the CRAP rally is 3-5 May at Asheboro NC (right near High Point) Come on by. Will have about 35-40 bikes there and I think we can fit you into a hack for the group ride on Saturday
