Re: engine pause

Check your maiin grounding connection (back of tranny). Thought I had a BRS problem, but a good clean and tighten of the ground fixed it.

Re: New Owner questions - Cleaning, securing, oils

My step one is to leave it in reverse - unless they know the bike, even if they get it started they got a problem going anywhere.

Step two, disc lock, cable lock, or U-lock. Anything to slow them down. If they brought a truck and lift gear - has anybody actually stolen a Ural that way?

Love my Harley police seat. Looks a bit big. But is very kind to my butt.

Re: Oil

Gene at Holopaw suggested Dino until 5,000 km, then whatever. Followed his advice. Used Rotella as well. Now Redline. Happy engine.

Re: Gear box blues.

But you are still under warranty. So if it comes to a rebuild and the mothership does it, you know it will be good.

Re: Should I trade?

A question I ask myself frequently. My 2010 is running fine with minimal mods (Windmill MkIII air filter being the first thing done, and spin on oil filter the second). Engine in a pulling great (41000km+) Gene once advised me the EFI fuel gains were not enough of a reason to trade (first of the EFI...

Re: foot lever on center stand?

Adding a tang to the center stand won't help much, if at all. Old BMW airheads had a tang, but they notoriously broke off; reason being that they were intended just to drop the center stand onto the pavement, then you were supposed to plant your foot on the center stand leg while heaving the bike o...

Re: Ural running issues

Hi. I'm running a 2011 GU. Crossover pipe was leaky from git-go, but really a noise issue than anything else, doesn't cut back pressure significantly or lean the mixture. Some of the comments on getting EFI O2 sensor to run better prompted me to exhaust wrap my pipes from the engine to the cats, inc...
