Motion Pro’s quick disconnect has worked perfectly and has made removing the fuel tank such a breeze - Not having to drain the tank, not getting fuel all over the place.

Also, Raceway’s Perch Ring set.

Since installed I’ve never had the carburetor come loose from the branch intake connection.

+1 on the Raceway Carb Perch. That and the 2013 style intake rubbers are 2 of my better Ural improvements.
past afflictions include limey motocars and bikes, R60/2, R65ls, and a Citroen.
Now an 87 K75s, DB Haanjo gravel bike, and a rusty 2012 GU bought new

Recently converted to a tank shifter on my 2011. Just prying the shift levers off is frowned upon as you can damage the seals, so I did a little digging and came up with this little guy at the local Advance Auto and tapered the ends on the grinder so they'd fit behind the levers. Worked like a charm, perfect size for tight places, and now a permanent part of the tool kit.

+2 on the MotionPro disconnects.

Side discussion, though. I initially mounted mine the way Dave has his routed, but for me the gas line kept cracking at the sharp bend and the line got in the way whenever I had to do anything on the battery. I finally used a longer length of 1/4" gas line and routed it *underneath* the air filter, then put the disconnect on the right side between the air filter and the tank. That makes it lots easier to remove the tank and leaves a lot of clearance on top of the air filter.

When I installed my disconnect, I just made the lines 10 or 12 inches long. Long enough to make an easy 180 degree bend in each of them on top of the air cleaner. When I needed to disconnect, I just pulled the lines to one side, out in the open.
I may not be good, but I'm slow.

ST100 is good cleaning stuff

I have the Zro Start power pack and its been great to recharge cell phone, light at night and any other device that uses a USB power up and I will get the harness hooked up up for a start issue if that should occur.


Chargers off the Europ plug with and adapter or 120 volt.

Use Mop 'n' Glo on all plastic parts. Even the ones that weren't very shiny to begin with will look great. It has an added benefit of leaving a film on the plastic which helps to keep dirt from adhering. It's a trick I learned as a kid riding quads and found to transfer well to the road world.

I watched my neighbor w@$# and detail his bike. Towards the end he finished up his clear plexiglass (plastic) windshield with WD-40. He said to get the last of the bugs off, keeps it clear of swirl scratches and yellowing. Looked good to me at 14 yrs old.
