lost reverse gear - 2017 CT

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.

lost reverse gear - 2017 CT

Post by 2017 CT » Sun Oct 20, 2019 6:33 am

Yesterday morning I was getting ready to bring my CT to URAL NE for some maintenance. When I went to back out of my garage I could not put the rig into reverse? Just got a pretty horrid grinding noise.

Rode to Boxborough and asked John to try and put it in reverse ..... no go, here's the kicker. I am like 2 days out of warranty.

hopefully Ural will cover the repair. ..... Has anyone else had trouble with reverse? I'm thinking it's probably in the gearbox.

It's never easy .............

Could you put it in reverse without the engine running?

Since you took it to Ural NE and they know the problem, can’t imagine it not being covered. But, don’t wait much longer

Ural of NE got the parent company to cover the new gearbox. They really went above and beyond to help me.

That's great news.

Let us know, if or when you're able, of the exact diagnosis regarding the damaged original transmission. Should it ever happen to one of us, we'd at least be conversant in the precise language to use, during the troubleshooting process, when describing the possible cause of the inoperative reverse gear.

Unfortunately, all I know is that they changed the entire gearbox. I did not press John for details..... I probably should have but I was so relieved it was covered that I did not question anything :-)
