Re: Mounting Head Temp Sensor

That's a neat accessory, I had one on a /2 BMW I had for awhile. It had been done years ago by engineer P.O. it worked very well. I have never considered doing it to the subsequent boxers I have owned, for 2 reasons: 1) It ramped up MY anxiety & was distracting while riding = MAIN REASON. 2) Sin...

Re: CA ACCIDENT

IF no one was hurt (which was impossible at speed involved) The rider would have been ticketed for the rear end collision for "NOT having their vehicle under control". Basically rear ending someone has traditionally been the drivers fault - no matter what the other person has done. Horribl...

Re: KBB vs. NADA vs. Real world pricing

Great deals CAN be found IF you are a pretty fair mechanic. I bought my 02 750 Tourist knowing the left cylinder barrel & head were disassembled. somewhat compensated for by low miles, nice upgrades, equipped to my liking - for $3k. I freely admit - I'd probably had a lot more fun just riding a ...

Re: Oil Adaptor?

I glued My adapter in with Gray GASKET FORMING GOO. It hasn't tried to back out yet, but I also put on the filter hand tightened.
Amazed I never had leak or weep - even running Mobil 1.

Re: Russian haters ....

My Urals have been Kid & Babe magnets, No Nasty's. Oddly Enough My civilian Royal Enfield gets lots of attention. A surprising number of east Indians have been really glad to see it here. One guy hugged me & almost cried - it made him so home sick. I'll bet he went home & started shoppin...

Re: EYE CANDY for knife collectors

... IMO the federal ban (now being ignored on the internet) ought to be lifted, so USA makers can get back in the game. what is this federal ban you speak of? on switchblades? :? at the Blade Show in ATL last month there were sellers of all kinds of switchblades and OTF (out-the-front) automatics. ...

Re: Oil Adaptor?

My Ducati 860 SS Replica would do 130 MPH without a crossover, Also none were present on my 02 Kawasaki W650 - with spectacular performance. So not to concerned about losing more non-performance from the URAL.

Re: Which metal shears do I get... ?

The top tool IS for light PLATE steel (it should say how thick in specs). The bottom is a sheet metal shear (I have an Air powered one) Does ok on light sheet metal, but curly cut metal gets in the way on curves.

Re: EYE CANDY for knife collectors

I ordered one of these back in the day, even bought my daughter a barely legal SPRING ASSIST knife when in her teens, knowing it was much more immediate defensive help than a cell phone. IMO the federal ban (now being ignored on the internet) ought to be lifted, so USA makers can get back in the game.

Re: Rust in tank causing issues

Having rehabilitated almost a dozen tanks with bad rust (& really hated the process) I'd go with a good used tank if you get the chance. It will save you annoyance if you can find an earlier one WITHOUT the interior vent pipe & EPA lid - OH wait, your in new York & have emissions inspect...

Re: FS: Oil filter adapter

OOOOH - THATS A DEAL. I love mine. On both my old Urals the paper filter plugs always leaked even with new O-rings. My adapter rig has NEVER leaked even though I use sneaky synthetic oil. I did glue it in with silicone form a gasket. SURE LOVE MINE. GRAB IT.

Re: Oil Adaptor?

The reason we are having to deal with them is to pass the EPA/DOT regulations. If you live in a free state - or part of a state with no emission inspection, there should be no downside to running separate exhaust pipes. While it can help with noise reduction, EPA/DOT requirements isn't the "re...

Re: Fading Tonneau Cover

I ended up trying Duplicolor's vinyl and fabric dye on my tonneau, windshield "skirt," shovel cover, and seat cover. I ran all of them through the w@$#ing machine substituting about a cup of Simple Green for any detergent. After drying, I applied 5-6 light coats to get full coverage. It s...

Re: Oil Adaptor?

With the early 750s the crossover is behind the transmission between the mufflers. When I get ready to change mufflers - & maybe soon, I will run without a cross over, as old BMWs didn't need/use them. The reason we are having to deal with them is to pass the EPA/DOT regulations. If you live in ...
