Re: Can't throttle up. Or loses speed.

Right so that is now sounding like ignition cutting out, intermittently

Re: hello from Gundagai, Orstralia

@ Mr Wazzock: That is why i get puzzled: Ranger is the name of the 2wd Gear-up in Europe. So according to my understanding someone sells cat for rabbit in Aussie-land. I know, but I am assured by my dealer that is also what it is called in left drive countries, where impossible to have 2WD. I think...

Re: Oil pressure guage...

Oil pressure is extremely low on Urals, it's why there's no oil pressure switch and warning light for the dash, there's not even enough pressure to turn off a hydraulic oil pressure switch. Your gauge would show next to nothing, just a few psi.

:D

Behaviour says to me straightaway "running on one cylinder", so any of the above suggestions, causing one side to not work

IMO, automotive dampers have too much dampening for most conditions, but its subjective.
FWIW, my OEM damper was replaced very early on, the replacement is still going 3 years later; I like that they're adjustable, not that I'm readjusting it at all often, but on that basis I want to agree.

Re: Head shake...

Reason why the rigs have a steering damper is because otherwise you do get head shake at slow speeds around 20 mph, this is normal behaviour (for a sidecar outfit) and not a fault.

Re: Enduro bench seat on '13

One nasty surprise I got from the Enduro is how it collects and holds rain water. First time I took mine off propped it nose up against a wall and a veritable little stream erupted out of the rear end. :o I drilled holes in the bottom of the plastic base as drains, in 3 different places I think, whi...

Re: Battery Fire

@DKK what bike exactly?

This is another significant reason why I like my solo seat (on my CT) just take the 'A' plate off that it sits on (4 Allen screws), a quick & easy 2 minutes job, and then the top of the batt and everything else is all open to the sky for access to everything. :D

Re: What did you do to your Ural today?

It's the reason why I did! :D I think you'll find you're going to have to inspect all the lamps periodically looking for bad contact problems. This has been impressed upon me. It's because of the rather nasty quality of the Russian lamps (sorry) :( Good to know, I wasn't expecting that. Usually I c...
