I would also take a good look at the swing arm bushings/bearings.
This makes a lot sense to me, see if there's any lateral play in the swing arm.

Re: Side valve vs 650

I have owned both and each have their merits. The Ural 650 revs quickly and I a little easier to modulate power in technical off roading.

The SV is anvil simple in comparison, does better at low rpm and sounds GREAT. Keep it below 45 mph.

Re: Daft Raceway Footbox Question

Just seems to me that your feet will feel different with one on a footpeg and one on a box. Get used to everything feeling different on these asymmetrical critters. Left and right turns are unique, even the boxer motor has one cylinder noticeably forward. Most people run a footbox for protection of...

Re: Spring in Colorado NOT in Moab

Any thoughts about 2020 yet?

Made the drive out there in 2018 and I'm ready for another adventure.

Re: Difficulty shifting into neutral/reverse

Neutral light is simple adjustment.

But my first thought is that you weren't really in neutral. It is possible to find a "false neutral" between other gears, in which case no light and no reverse.

IMWA has a history of rolling out changes, not necessarily on the model year.

I could be wrong about this and it's been a while since I've been in a Dnepr motor, but I don't see the caps which I believe should be between the rockers and the valves... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.ebay.com/itm/Valve-caps-4-pieces-MT801527-Dnepr-11-16-/1519116...

Re: Parts compatibility between years

I think the OP needs to be clear about his ultimate goal. If it's about resurrecting old Ural/Dneprs and playing in the dirt... Keep it simple; ride, break, fix. No sense in reinventing a wheel that already rolls. If you are looking to build some kind of ultra capable three-wheeled dirtbike, it's go...

Re: Dnepr Q & Howdy

Unlike Urals over the last 20 years, model year on a Dnepr doesn't mean much when you're shopping for parts. Just look for MT11 parts and info. Even though it's an easily changed part, the date on the back of the voltage regulator seems to be as good of a clue as any to narrow down the "not before" ...

Re: Dnepr Q & Howdy

Serial numbers won't help. You will probably find mfg dates on various parts but unless they all match(unlikely), it will still be a range of possibilities. Best guess... It's a 90's bike, give or take a decade:) Owner a Dnepr should cure you of a desire for exacting details like a model year :) Wel...
