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

Woe unto you that bought the first model year of a major remake, perhaps this section can help address any 2014 and later model Ural "imperfections". Here's a special section for folks with the latest rigs to discuss 2014 and later model-related topics such fuel injection, 3-wheel disc brakes, hydraulic steering dampers, spin-on oil filters and other anomalies that don't belong on true Russsian motorcycle ;-P We've gone from using big hammers and greasy wrenches to needing computers and Ouija boards in order to fix our rigs.
Forum rules
Please keep this section specific to issues pertaining to 2014 and later models such as fuel injection, sidecar and rear disc brakes and so forth. Ask general or non-2014 and later specific questions in the main Hammerin' & Wrenchin' section.

Typed a long reply, but site hung up on posting so I lost it, and can't remember what I typed. Been doing that frequently lately. :(

I'm looking forward to knowing about riding safety gear. I just want to know about custom earplugs or motorcycle riding earplugs. Does anyone have any idea about it or use it before at the time of riding?

I find most of the time I'm not going fast enough on the Ural to be thinking about earplugs now, unlike hitherto on faster bikes :D

I think my local roads have a high crown and the Ural may be a bit more sensitive to this. I noticed that my VW Tiguan also pulls right even though it's alignment is spot on.

I finally have it right! The trick seemed to be making sure that the sidecar was level when I was sitting on the sidecar. I ended up with 1" toe-in and 3.5 deg. lean-out -- all measured with my weight on the bike. After lots of trying it's now east to drive. This setup is MUCH different from what my dealer delivered.

Man, try contacting Big Ear. I ordered one like this from them when I was in California 5 months ago. I waited 2 weeks before I got them but the plugs are worth the wait. They are pretty expensive but you can use them a lot of ways.
