Re: Altitude Limit?

Nevr been that high on a Ural but my first thought is I'd question UM facts. I've worked a lot in CO(geology) and yeah they have some serious elev passes but pretty much off hwy dirt. Aren't many paved hwy passes above 11,000 ft. Think there's one around Leadville? How'd UM figure he was at 11,500 b...

Re: heated gloves???

Don't know about the Hakkin brand but the older original Zippo hand warmers work great to keep in your coat pocket. Don't really use/need them here where but in really cold weather nice to have with.

Re: Paint matching

I would take the side cover into an auto paint store and they can computer scan it to find a match.

Re: New style tractor seat

Looks promising. Solo seats should be on springs not rubber blocks. I've been saving change for an Enduro seat but really don't want to give up my fender rack. Nice to se another possible option.

Re: heated gloves???

I have Gerbig also. I think mine is the 2nd of the 3 generations of Gerbig. The originals could/would plug right into the same exact pigtail as Deltrans (Battery Tenders). Then they moved to what I have, a coax plug. The newer micro-mesh have similar. I do not know if you can get an actual cigarett...

Re: Oxygen (O2) Sensor Removal

I've been doing a little research on the modern day glasspack and everything points to "they don't make them like they used to." The one I linked has: 'High heat Cerama-glass packing for improved sound control and internal durability." - whatever that means. Most reviews state that t...

Re: 2015 Gear-Up Won't Crank (or start, obviously)

My first guess would have been battery but Chaos2 brings up a good point with the starter needing cleaning. Might be a combo of both. The latest generation of orig batteries seem to be of poor quality and need replacing sooner than you'd think. Repeated short commutes (<10 miles) sure doesn't do &qu...

Re: heated gloves???

I would think any of the heated glove manufactures have avail a harness that has plugs into a 12v outlet. Mine are from a now defunct company (Widder) but plug into a Widder heated vest but pretty sure a 12v plug was avail cause not everyone has a heated vest or jacket to plug into. I don't have a r...

Re: non running ural on craigslist

Non-running 650 with stated " I will have the title next week."
Offer no money and tell him call me when you have a current valid US title in "your" name, and we'll talk.

Re: Financing Advice?

Iyorsk, nothin personal, but I think you're SOL. I haven't financed a "new" vehicle since 1979 and back then "nobody" would loan money on a 12 year old used bike. I don't keep up with financing rules so don't know if things have changed? I'm betting the only way to maybe(?) get a...

Re: After market full enclosure for hack?

Never seen an off the shelf one for a Ural but it's doable. ($$$). If I were to attempt it and I'm not: I would build the supports from cheap black 1/2" PVC pipe. The stuff you use for underground sprinkler systems is really cheap and easy to work with.You can afterward fab metal supports. Once...

Re: Feasibility of all weather riding PNW

With some bike prep/weather comfort items the bike will do fine. My main thought is "where" on the wet side are you? Where I live it's easily doable. If you gotta deal with that cluster**** they call the Seattle area, I'd punt. Those folks can't drive in the rain and if it snows you're on ...
