List of extra tools and parts for touring with an 2014+ EFI rig

Woe unto you that bought the first model year of a major remake, perhaps this section can help address any 2014 and later model Ural "imperfections". Here's a special section for folks with the latest rigs to discuss 2014 and later model-related topics such fuel injection, 3-wheel disc brakes, hydraulic steering dampers, spin-on oil filters and other anomalies that don't belong on true Russsian motorcycle ;-P We've gone from using big hammers and greasy wrenches to needing computers and Ouija boards in order to fix our rigs.
Forum rules
Please keep this section specific to issues pertaining to 2014 and later models such as fuel injection, sidecar and rear disc brakes and so forth. Ask general or non-2014 and later specific questions in the main Hammerin' & Wrenchin' section.

List of extra tools and parts for touring with an 2014+ EFI rig

Postby bluesman » Tue Mar 15, 2016 12:26 pm

Any suggestions as to a list of spare parts and specialty tools beyond the stock tool kit for on road touring? Max of several thousand miles per trip within the US.

With my Retro setup with no spare wheel, I am planning on at least 2 spare tubes, Jack or wood blocks (or both), and 12v mini air compressor.

Don't forget the 3/8" Allen wrench for the rear caliper. I think they recommend a hemostats or pair of needle nose for the keepers too.
If you carry tubes instead of a spare, I like to have 3 tire irons and hand cleaner for lube and clean up both. Don't forget a spare rim strip.

Agree with a 3rd tire iron and the 3/8" allen wrench. I also like to have a spare donut onboard. Not that they fail often but if it does it may be hard to get a new one in a timely fashion. Bad enough breaking down on a trip but at todays motel costs hanging out in a motel for days waiting for the mailman can be a budget buster.
edit: Oh yeah, I would also pack along a small cheap DMM. Nothing fancy, a <$20 meter is all you need.

I'd buy a cheap set of 3/8" drive metric sockets at Harbor Freight


It's hard to say what spares to take with you. Mainly because whatever you carry will not be the part that breaks.

A set of laminated schematics too. Even if you can't read them (not saying you can't), it will give someone that can a fighting chance.

I have been looking for a good shallow and deep wall Metric only socket set, it seems like most sets are SAE and Metric. Seems like the best choice is the

bluesman,
Harbor Freight has a set of metric deep 3/8"l sockets for $11.99 and shallow for $9.99. While these are not top quality, they are not bad. Only an extremely stubborn fastener will give them any trouble. I used a set of them for 17 years on industrial presses. If you dropped a socket on one of those, usually it was gone forever. I could buy a whole set of Harbor Freight for the price of one Snap On socket. I have busted a Harbor Freight socket but I had a 3 foot cheater pipe on the handle of a breaker bar and a small socket. I eventually took a torch to the bolt.

I am a fan of HF sockets and ratchets, they have gotten much better over the years. Not a fan of most of their electric stuff, though. The 1/4" drive set has become my go to for small jobs, mainly because it has all the SAE & metric in a nifty little holder. Check sizes before you buy, they have a habit of skipping the one socket size you need.

Just my opinion. You don't need super quality tools for an emergency roadside repair/maint kit. I carry a 3/8" drive socket set(metric) branded Master Mechanic(?) Just the cheap generic house brand my local True Value hdw store sells. Wouldn't be my go to set if I were rebuilding the motor but work just fine for road maint. Plus if you lose some or they get stolen it's not a major deal. I prolly carry more spare parts and tools than a lot of folks but I don't carry anything I'm not qualified or willing to do on the side of the road. Nor carry anything I can't afford to lose or replace. Customizer your parts stash and tool kit for "your" needs.

Standard sized and deep well 3/8" drive metric socket sets are available at Harbor Freight for $10 each set.

Those Harbor Freight socket sets are cheap money for sure

Not having done any work to this rig yet, it seems like for roadside repairs deep sockets may not be needed after scanning things? Thoughts?

I went around checking every fastener I could see, and I have the big 3/8" hex in the Ural Kit. The kit seems pretty good overall.

Missing from the Ural Kit:
1. One thing I noticed that was not in the Ural tool Kit are Torx T30 & T40 bits for the rear pusher and sidecar brakes.
2. Second thing the Ural Kit did not have was the large Phillips head needed for the Starter (#3 or #4 size)

Torx screws on a Ural? Lawdy Lawdy say it ain't so... Them are a Merican or maybe Euro punk design so the assembly line robots can pick'em up easier(faster). Just can't see IMZ's low production assembly plant using expensive auto robots on their assembly line to save a buck? Never even seen an 015 Ural in person but my 014 has no robot screws on it.
