Re: foot lever on center stand?

I use a 12" x 12" piece of 3/4" plywood to stabilize the rig... my rig is 1WD, so you'll have to experiment to find that actual center of gravity.

Re: foot lever on center stand?

need an engineering project; a retractable lifting device that bolts onto the OEM center stand mounts. Or maybe just convince a company like SW-Motech to build one of their center stand replacement for Ural. Maybe with a "socket" for a 24' tommy bar. http://motorcycle.com.vsassets.com/blog...

Re: Carb main spring

You can actually order that spring from UNE? Kind of surprising, I figured it would be one of those "not sold separately" deals.

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 on...

Given the issues at hand with new bikes I reckon I'll ...

Re: Mods Dnepr air box fr LeMoto

Re: Overfilled Crankcase - Chevy Truck

I would be wary of handing them my vehicle for a second shot of their incompetence.


Considering that the oil change was the absolute simplest procedure performed, this has certainly plagued my subconscious for the past several days.... :brickwall:
