Well im new to the Ural scene, got recently a 2014 efi gear up with 6800km (now 7500km).
The tranny was noisy and clunky, neutral was a pain to find, most of the time had to kill the engine to find it and to put it in reverse, plus often grinding noise on shifting even with a blip of throttle between shifts to align shafts...and often had that false neutral between 3rd and 4th gear, bike ran 20w50 mineral castrol oil in both engine and tranny and 80w90 castrol gear oil in final drive from previous owner. When i drop oils, engine was dark and blackish a bit of metal on plug, nothing alarming. tranny oil had a bit of goldish color in it and a bit of metal on plugs, pasty. final drive oil had silvery colors in it and pasty metal on plug. I will keep a close eye on next oil drop for metal contents...been told that ural takes a bit of time to break in.
After some reading and phone calls ( spoke to redline people) , i decided id go with redline and there fully synthetic 20w50 motorcycle oil for the engine and for the gearbox and final drive i went with their Vtwin transmission gear oil with shockproof (same as heavyduty shockproof gear oil, just cheaper per quartz at my supplier).
My observations since: about a 100km done since dropping oils, engine start up a bit less noisy and feels a bit more gutsy at highway speed. final drive, cant say, time will tell. Most noticeable was the gearbox, it's way easier to find neutral, not perfect but no comparo to before, still a nice clunk upon gear change but the grinding occurs on rare occasion while putting in gears, tranny noises are down while cruising...false neutral between 3rd and 4th gear still present. For me its night and day.
I live in Quebec city, temp can range form 8-10 celcius in the morning up to close to 28-30 celcius at its highest during day time at this time butcan get hotter in july.
To conclude, using redline full synthetic oils (or probably any good quality brands synthetic lubricants, just seen lots of great comments about redline products and it wasnt more expensive than royal purple or lucas oils for example) did improve my ural on the first ride.
Ill try to post comments when ill do my next maintenance.
(please forgive my english since its not perfect)
