Re: Denso voltage fluctuates at 3,000+ rpm? 12.4V - 13.7?

Excellent writeup by Ernie Franke http://www.russianiron.com/eafranke_ural4/Part%20XXVIII-6%20-%20Voltage%20Regulator%20(126000-0600).pdf I've had to replace rectifier/ regulators on two Hondas and an Enfield. It's likely the culprit with the Denso. Just seemed odd, bikes that had the repair were wa...

Denso voltage fluctuates at 3,000+ rpm? 12.4V - 13.7?

I've had a sense my alternator's kinda iffy, but yesterday plugged a meter across the battery to test how accurate the LCD display on the speedometer is, seems to match. I know that's not the perfect way to test alternator output, but I think it's close enough. Went to run errands and watched the ou...

Re: WTB off road rig

Looks like somebody bought that 2014, the ad has been removed. That's why we're all kinda pointing on where to look, not specifically ads. The good cheap Urals last about a day before someone sucks them up. Saw a 2013 Patrol at $4,500 last almost a week but I think that's because the owner was a pa...

Re: WTB off road rig

2014 in South Dakota for $6,800 if you don't need pretty. Has a Raceway solo seat and Reverse shifter. Once upon a time someone cared about it. https://www.cycletrader.com/listing/2014-Ural-GEAR-UP-2WD-5011234189 https://cdn2.cycletrader.com/v1/media/5e348729c7c3f06d384dea45.jpg?width=1024&height=76...

Re: Nomenclature confusion, compliance fitting, mounting flange

Compliance fitting is a general term for the rubber intake flange that connects a carburetor to a head. I'd encountered it long before playing with Urals.

Some bikes have carbs that bolt directly to the heads. Others use a rubber intake flange that complies to the shape of the desired carburetor.

Re: Ural sidecar trunk lock

From what I understand, the Delaware Dave setup is basically what Ural switched to. You can order the parts from a modern Ural to retrofit, or just get all of part 30 from the parts catalog. Part 29 bolts to the trunk latch, part 25 is the lock, the whole shebang is part 30. There are some photos sh...

Re: Battery Issue!

Still not sure what dead as dead could be means.

There is a 20A inline fuse in the area of the battery. Did you blow the fuse?

Re: Battery Issue!

2017 Urals don't charge at idle. The Denso alternator needs a higher RPM to charge. Letting it sit and idle = drains the battery. Unlike a carbed bike, it's running the fuel pump, the ECU's, extra do dads. If you switch your odometer to the voltage output it will give you an idea of what's happening...

Re: Weird Smell Question

I had the tank off to replace the vacuum petcock with a mechanical petcock and checked the wiring harness while I was there. Your bike, do what you want with it. If I was trying to figure out where a smell was coming from, I would remove the tank, get the engine running, and figure out where the sm...

Re: Weird Smell Question

The fuel tank on a 2011 is easy to remove. Disconnect the fuel line from the petcock, drain the tank from reserve. Remove the bench seat, undo the two bolts at the front of the fuel tank, disconnect the cross fuel line under the tank (connects left to right, I disconnect left and let both drain into...

Re: Best Tune for Hot Running?

Remove the shims from your needle.

Shims raise the needle. Raised needle = more fuel in mid-range

Remove the shims and you'll slightly lean out the mid range.

Re: Denver Craigslist - CJ750 $2,000

Hey Eric, Seller's changed list price to $5,000, still has the $2,000 in the body of the ad. There's other quirks such as mention of the spare tire but the spare mount is missing. There's mention of fresh paint but the floor of the sidecar looks spotty, the sidecar seat is also not out of a CJ. Hand...

+1 for Terry Crawford. He was always reliable when I had my 650.
