How is everyone running there damper on the street? Full tight or backed off a bit?
Usually around 11 - 12 clicks counting from minimum. But this is subjective. :D

Re: Hydraulic clutch

It can help to make the cable free play at the h'bar lever end at maximum, around 8mm, which is what I do. Does make for an easier pull. Gobium made a video about putting an adjustable screw in to reduce the amount of distance the lever flaps about loosely if you do this. (I haven't bothered, I let ...

Re: New Guy Here and Soon Buying a Ural Gear Up

So I went in cautiously. Leaving the dealer 4 blocks in I ran the side care wheel up on a barricade (saved by good reflexes , bad I did not have the right wheel mapped and I drove Catwagon and Euclid mining trucks that were at least 12 feet wide. Ok, note, I can see the side car nose out of the cor...

Re: Under Coating On Ural, Is It Necessary

What Harry said, mine gets a frequent soaking in ACF50. My dealer includes it with the "gold service". I always keep a can too. I keep the tub and trunk floors coated with it under the mats. OK so far. Re the fenders, you must spray it into the seams between the valences (right word?) and the fender...

Re: Did you ride today?

Me special long bolt had arrived so I could finish the solo seat, AND THEN it stopped raining, so I could give it a go today. Went in search of some bumpy roads to test the springs. And I made a viddy. :D Felt really strange at first but before the hour was up I had got used to it. :thumbsup: https:...

Re: What did you do to your Ural today?

The factory finish on the original fuel cap faded furiously, and in short order. A quick clean and a few shots of black satin enamel restored its appearance well enough. https://i.postimg.cc/vZgjY5mv/Painted-cap-17-Aug-2019.jpg I think I need to do this too. Even got the paint in the shed! @ Chad t...

After many decades of 2 wheelers when I got my Ural I felt like a kid with his very first motorbike. And the feeling hasn't worn off.

Re: It sounds like a jet

It sounds like gear tower wine and the rest sounds like typical Ural engine clatter, hard to tell from video if it's more than normal.
Yep seems reasonable to me. These will be Russian gears? Not Herzog

Maybe just me but idling or running... all sounds pretty normal to me.
And not sure what jet could ever sound like a Ural but definitely one I wouldn't ant to be flying in.

Bike looks nice BTW.
Can only listen on mobile phone now but what he said ^, and it sounds quieter than mine! :o

Re: What alloy does the MT9 engine use?

OK I get it now, identical to the BMW screw on finned clamps. Never had a problem with these (I had an R80) apart from originals seized, had to cut slots in the finned nuts to loosen them. Replacements always went back on with copper grease. That ensured they could unscrew again.

Re: 2019 speedo lights staying on

Sounds to me like a logic (electronics) issue in the speedo. Disconnecting battery resets the speedo to defaults.
