Re: New member of the ran-out-of-gas club

I'm part of the club now as well. Had the rig out in the training area on Ft Benning, GA and I guess that I use more fuel on dirt/unimproved roads. Next day was driving to work with a planned stop at the gas station (I was at 114 miles and normally fuel up at 100) had two burps then coasted at 20 un...

Urban Camo GU in Columbus, GA

One of my buddies saw another Ural in the Columbus, GA area! I thought I was the only one in this neck of the woods but it would be great if there are more of us! Any idea who it is?

Re: GA Riders going to CRAP?

Chad, I think I'll have to try that one out! Maybe an accompanying foil hat for Willie if I can get him to keep it on LOL! Look forward to BSing with you and getting ideas on a Tach and oil temp gauge similar to what you have on your rig!

Re: CRAP RALLY 4-6 May 2018 Asheboro NC

I'll be there! My first Ural Rally! I know the Ural crowd isn't a huge group but do you all normally reserve a block of sites or is it just a crap shoot and first come first serve. Any good BBQ places in the area? I miss NC BBQ!

Re: GA Riders going to CRAP?

Got it all figured out! Since I have baby duty that weekend I'm going to trailer my rig to Charlotte, drop my daughter off with the inlaws, and then ride to the campgrounds. I should be there the whole time as long as my daughter doesn't give the inlaws too much grief! Any idea what the campground c...

Re: GA Riders going to CRAP?

Talked to Big James and he said when the time gets closer to call him. He'll probably be travelling faster than I want to (55-65 is good for me) so if anyone is making a leisurely trip I'll keep my ear to the ground. If the wife wants to visit her inlaws I'll probably trailer to Charlotte and ride f...

GA Riders going to CRAP?

Is anyone from the Georgia Sidecar Club going to CRAP in Ashboro, NC this year? If I can go I'd rather ride with a group instead of going on my own.

Re: Final Drive Leak?

I'll keep checking the oil level regularly. I'm pretty sure its just leaking out of the little round vent top. I picked up some Kawasaki 80w-90 has anyone used it before or is it irrelevant as to what 80w-90 you use?

Final Drive Leak?

Is it normal for the final drive to have a very light leak? I have over 500 miles on my 2017 GU and the final drive has what I consider a Class I leak (not welling but area appears wet). Advice welcome!

1st Servicing of the Bike

So aside from taking off the original oil filter that had to have been put on by a juicing Russian on every steroid known to God (after talking with Tomcatfixer I used the old screwdriver through the filter trick and that barely loosened it)! My 2017 GU is now happy camper until I hit the 1000 mile ...

Re: Anybody shoot Trap?

Billy G is right on the money with his comments! They're tools for a set purpose and if its not comfortable for you you're already starting off badly. It's like me with a Glock, respect the pistols greatly but they have never felt good in my hand so I stick with FN, Dig, Chanik...

Re: Emergency Brake Cable

Already contacted John at Ural of NE and he'll be getting back with me. I really haven't had a need to use it but it looks pretty pathetic with the unsecured handle zip tied down!
