Re: NU B ?

When released it will hit the underside. There are adjustments for both the pusher and sidecar brakes. You'll want a little play in both. At the master cylinders, the pushrod has a 10mm nut/ adjustment. Unclip the clip thing and remove it. Make sure there is a little wiggle in the pushrod. 2mm is wh...

Re: Removing the Sidecar

Thank you for the suggestions. I don’t “have” to pull the Sidecar, however if it’s just a 20 min job (or it could be if I do it a couple times) it will make life easier for some things. I’ve thought about doing the 19+ cylinders/heads. But the parts are over $2550... You can replace the cylinders/ ...

Re: Removing the Sidecar

You can pull the engine with gear box attached without removing the sidecar. Why do you need to pull the sidecar to do the Keihin swap? Not the OP but I can say my Retro Solo is a lot easier to work on than my Gear Up due to just pure ease of access. But might just be my bike but even adjusting the...

Re: Removing the Sidecar

I haven't pulled my 2018, I think the sidecar driveshaft will just come off.

For ease of access, option #2 is remove top strut bolts, loosen bottom strut bolts, lean bike away from sidecar. You can get lots of room that way.

Re: 650 bottom end question

A twisted crank will screw with timing, not just ignition timing but valve timing. The flywheel will wobble. If the flywheel stays true, and the front gear stays true, the inbetweens are probably fine. A seriously twisted crank's flywheel wobble will even be visible through the timing hole as you mo...

Re: strange noise running

Thanks to everyone for your replies, So it seems like a normal noise, it's a second-hand bike and I was worried Cheers and beers Unless you start seeing large metal pieces in your oil, I think you're fine. The tolerances aren't the best, it is possible 2nd and 3rd are just a little tighter and that...

Re: Ural Shop offers steel rims for the disc brake Urals

The stuff I've gotten from Hari in the past has been very high quality. I'd expect them to be round.

Re: Rusty/Pitted Exhaust Pipes

I'm thinking of having mine ceramic coated.

I don't know final price.

The auto store has various exhaust/ high temp paints. You could do black but a silver/ chrome-ish would look really sharp on the BC.

I do not agree that adjusting lean out will effect toe. It shouldn't if you do it right.
Alignment measurement is below the pivot point. With lean out, tires get a little closer to hack. It's not a huge difference but it is a measurable change in the toe in percentage.

Re: 2016 patrol fuel leak

https://www.amazon.com/OTC-4506-Fuel-Line-Clamp/dp/B002YKHRUK Don't worry about the fuel line on the left side, it just goes to the injectors and you can disconnect it without fuel coming up. Clamp the two lines on the right side of the pump. The wires under my pump are for the O2 sensors and coils,...

Re: Hand Pain

Try looking at your upper body and elbow angle. If you are leaning forward with your elbows out you could be supporting part of your upper body weight on your hands. The weight might be putting pressure on your median nerve (carpal tunnel nerve). Bar-backs and risers might be in order. +1 on risers...

Re: 2016 patrol fuel leak

The fuel pump mounts to the frame with a 6mm Allen head bolt (I think it's a 4mm Allen head). You can reach it from the front without taking the fuel tank off, it's a arm twisty thing but drop the fuel pump by removing that bolt and then you can better see what's going on. The power supply connects ...

Do you have the stock Ural grips? I don't like em, too small. Biltwell Thrusters are very comfortable and help with feel https://www.biltwellinc.com/collections/thruster Whats your alignment like, are you having to push/ pull while holding throttle? That could be a lot going on with the right hand a...

Re: Alignment tips for constant 50-55mph

Here a recent YouTube movie straight from Ural to ponder while at anchor. https://youtu.be/7VVdtAEzNVc The video does a pretty good job of explaining theory and the mechanics. He skirts the issue of how to fine tune it and really that's just ride and adjust. To add to the mix, I once decided on one...
