Re: What are your kickstarting rituals?

Each kickstart bike has it's own quirks but in general, and in helping others kickstart theirs (this is carbed bikes, EFI is a different game): Chokes are dialed in for about 60 degrees, my bikes will start without choke above that but get pissy below. Power off, fuel on, two full priming kicks. Use...

Re: 2013 patrol newb question (low torque?)

Hey Buddies,

125 main and 38 pilot are good for Denver. Should also be about 1.5 turns out on the air screw. Anyone telling you to go larger doesn't understand the concept of elevation.

Valve cover leak isn't a problem, snug the cover (not tight, just snug) and worst case replace the gasket.

Re: Found yet another dealer mistake, wrong plugs and gap not set

Back in 2016, just before buying my 2001 Patrol, I went down to Hymark (aka Strictly Powersports) to talk to them about Urals. The sales person didn't know much, and their maintenance person told me if it was pre 2007 it would be impossible for them to fix. It really came across as a "we just carry ...

Re: CL find

It's a 650, kickstart only, hard to tell but looks like newer CV carbs.

1WD, 2 into 1 exhaust. Could be a fun bike, Russian Garage and eBay would be the source for parts, might be too old for Terry or Gene.

Re: Many New 2018 Urals for Sale at Dealers ?

Hey Jack, People have different reasons for wanting a Ural. There are some personalities that always need the latest greatest whatever. There are others where "eh, it's good enough". I have a 2013 and a 2018, kinda the last of each generation. They're both fine bikes. My 2001 was also the last year ...

Re: HP to Weight Ratio and Ural Top Speed

Hey Jack, Urals can go faster. They are not safe or enjoyable at high speeds. Let's say you're on a Gear-Up going 80mph, you come across some wavy road section. The bike's not going to be stable. A car can drive over the same patch at speed and will barely notice, the Ural is going to be borderline ...

Re: Need replacement chrome turn signal housing

iural75 sometimes posts here. I've had good luck buying from him, the parts were always exactly as shown (rust and all). He has a pair posted on eBay. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Set-of-brackets-2-pc-lamp-sidecar-for-motorcycle-URAL-chrome/191894046523 https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/mkwAAOSwt5hYY5Mn/s-...

Re: 2017 GearUp full exhaust. $60. Approx. 500miles

If you still have the exhaust, I can come down from Denver and just pick it up, cash in hand.

Re: Denver Craigslist - 1998.5 Sportsman? $4,200

"No known issues". He must not have tried to find parts for it :lol: Looks nice but I wouldn't spend that for a 20yr old Ural I'm always puzzled by the need some feel to attack others ads. Does it make you feel powerful? Does it help compensate for something? I understand your financial situation i...
