Sorry about your breakdown, great cause for ALTZ

Doesn't help now, but these bikes (and airheads in general) like higher revs and hate being lugged. Lugging them is an almost-certain route to a crank failure. A lot of folks get up in 4th and then just stay there, even when speed/rpm's drop.

Riding in the beautiful country you describe, I'd be in third and maybe even second most of the time going uphill, using the high end of the gear range.

You may have been doing that anyway, so I'm not being critical. Just bringing up a cautionary note for Uralistas climbing up hills.

Very worthy cause! I agree with Gobium - talk to Jason at IMZ in Redmond. If that doesn't work, talk real sweetly to Gobium himself.

Olga, sorry for your troubles. Pulling a crank is not that hard. Reassembly of course is a different matter. Think you can save a dime by pulling the engine and pulling the crank. Buy the new crank and then take the engine casing to a machinist shops and see if they can rest the new crank. As Van has pointed out..................it is not rocket science.

don't think wrestling a Ural engine out of the frame ,and pulling out the crank and reassembly, is what Olga is looking to do, IMHO, she is looking for viable options at this point. :|

Sorry to hear about your mom. It is difficult disease.

My Ural has 28k kilometers on her.

Good points. I blame my dad cause his extra weight! :o I definitely don't lug it but I probably don't get the RPM's as high as you suggested. Good to know this about Urals, they can take the extra rev. I plan to call Jason tomorrow and then next week take it in to Bellingham or the Redmond shop??? We'll see who has the best plan.

Wow, are you psychic?! You know me well, that really is the last thing I want to do, UNLESS some educated Uralisist wants to help me?? Anyone available in WA state, I will drive Olga myself and be your wing woman. It will be fun! This would make great footage for the documentary from our RIDE4ALZHEIMERS trip as well!! Any takers?! :boogie:

Yes, read my reply to Hotflash 44, he's right, I really can't do this myself unless I had help and my partner is working away most of the summer so he's out! I would love to learn how, I can take things apart really well but I would be screwed trying to put them back together by myself! I'm not good with reading directions, I get to impatient, thats why I never shop at IKEA!!! But I can follow verbal directions really well though!

Olga, your in Ural Heaven,a play on words,Redmond Washington is where IMZ the mother ship is housed. Surely in your area,there is someone that is qualified to resurrect Olga! at a reasonable price. Our member that contacted you Gobium/AKA Van Harper lives on the east coast offered to fly out and fix Olga,you might research his proposal a little, as he is very qualified to do the repair. of course as usual this advice is IMHO. good luck!
