Re: What to look for when buying

transmission is a box of rocks on a good day. Wear boots, use the heel shifter and shift slowly and deliberately. Exotic, expensive designer oil often helps shifting. Sputtering could be bad gas or normal cold engine if it still has the original lean factory jetting. All of the oil fill and drain pl...

Re: newfound adoration of tubed M/C tires

I did my son's CBR 250 recently, used the zip tie method and it went easily enough, but getting the back wheel on the bike again was a monumental task after owning shaft drives for the last 35 years. I took it off with the bike on the sidestand, no centerstand, had to improvise jacks to get it verti...

Re: Had to vent!!

Had a similar HD encounter, guy and his passenger basically told me to f*** off when I nodded to them at a stop light. Later I pulled up next to a hard core rat bike harley dude expecting the cold shoulder and he raved about my Ural and mentioned how he loved the dealer, Heindl's. Some people are ju...

Re: Ural Performance Upgrades

It is rewarding to take the old tech and get it to idle, pull strongly through the rev range, start easily and get good mileage. Trickiest & most critical part for me was getting the right combination of jets, needles and needle heights. When I got close I'd change one thing and run a tank of ga...

Re: Help trace a valve cover gasket leak

if the tube is plugged the valve cover will be nearly full of oil when you take it off, should just be a couple tablespoons in there. An odd problem I had was the locating pin in the corner didn't quite line up with the corresponding hole in the valve cover, it fit but didn't seat all the way so the...
