Re: No Changes for 2021

Sounds like I'll just safety wire them. Was having a issure with the nuts on my GU loosening. Safety wire solved problem. Got a jig for drilling nuts. As per video in that linked topic, TomCatFixer wired his, as you can see in the video, still went loose. Me, I keep a ring wrench handy in the tub a...

Re: Rim strip make great cat toys

+1 for wide rim strips, I've got them, 30mm wide. Two flats on the bike very early on, caused by TWO normal width strips being put in, to try to get some extra width, but the ridge caused by the overlap wore thru both inner tubes (front & rear).

Re: Should I buy this - NO

I had a friend at the time bought one of the very first ones. Don't know if it was the above or "chocolate camshaft syndrome" but he was cursing Honda for a while. All got sorted in warranty tho with better bits then he was happy bunny. Albeit looking odd, I do remember the technical details like th...

Re: Lights go off and come back on?

They have THREE to make the starter work mind you. :o Light fuses and relays are displayed in your manuals....Never mind. :o :D I maybe making assumptions about 2918 diagram, right now don't have the ability to look at it, but I did say "if it's like m...

Re: Rear caliper retaining bolt wrench

What they said. 10mm it ain't! Altho it looks like. Also the parking brake arm nut is 5/8" I think, however 16mm fits (in fact I use a 5/8 from one wrench kit as a 16mm cause the metric kit doesn't have that).

Re: Finally an owner!

For security (in lieu of a steering lock) I currently use an armoured cable lock that ties the front wheel to the sidecar front bumper bar. I go with its so odd no one would steal it! Unfortunately my insurance company insists on additional security means. And as they would like to get out of payin...

Re: Fixed vibration, now have a noise

Can you look in spark plug hole for signs of damage or something amiss, to me sounds like something banging against something and seems regular with piston movement.

Re: Dark smoke, I have broke something

I know there are Ural dealers in UK.
Only one now I believe, F2 Motorcycles at Wisbech, near Cambridge (the other was Watsonian but they stopped)

I've also mail ordered from Ural Lorraine France, no problems with that.
