Re: What did you do ON your Ural today?

Still in lockdown, which means stay at home. Our trash is not going to be collected for the following week, due to not enough staff to do it either off with Covid or self isolating. :( The emotional pressures of virtual imprisonment is taking its toll in all kinds of quarters and ways. Several young...

Bad light pattern dazzling other drivers.

But we get enough of that already with LED day running lights on cars.

Re: What are/is your Winter Project(s)?

Just for any UK readers reading this, MOT rules were updated 11 January 2021, HID or LED 'bulb' in a headlamp designed for a filament bulb (e.g., H4, HS1 etc.), aka 'a HID/LED conversion', will be an MOT fail. :D

Re: Just a heads up

It's been my experience the relay may be alright, but the connecting termnals are corroded. They can be cleaned up, but will never be top notch again, so I ask myself do I really want to faff about or just get new one(s) :D

Re: Petcock vs Petcock

Further to what Claus said, yes I would expect it needs to be vacuum hose, specifically, best bet is get it from a car spares store I found. Dare say eBay has something but need to look for vacuum hose, not just any hose will do.

Re: 20 MINUTES ON THE HIGHWAY AND IT STOPS (Moved)

I always turned off my petcocks, still will do for the Bantam (when it's finished). Hose joints can spring a leak too. Guess how I know ... :D

Re: Did you know?

Yes I knew that. :D My dealer told me a story where someone epoxied up the O2 sensor wires to better protect them from the weather etc. That totally screwed up both lambdas. :o Needed new ones. Inside the lambda is a crystal, and at normal working temperature (bluddy hot, and this is why it also inc...

Re: Choosing routes for Urals

On a mildly humorous note, an early lesson in my Ural ownership was that the same twisting roads that I glided through on any [single track] motorcycle was now one hell of a workout when trying to tiller a sidecar through the same snug curves. So, I do still occasionally choose routes for the sidec...
