RPM for 2019 (and Max Speeds in a Given Gear)

I have been going over this and scratching my head trying to sort it out. The Emissions sticker says Max 6200 rpm (cT 2019) I tam taking that as redline. Was the old Redline lower? Book says 5500 rpm Max. Yellow? Dated? I think I got the rev limiter kicked in but as no tach (yet) no idea what that w...

Re: Why a Ural Costs 15K +

Time: When its a small operation, then time becomes a major factory. You still have to keep the whole circus going, and find time to deal with new vendors (or improve what the ones you have supply) prototype it, then get it into production. Time is a precious commodity and if its a small operation t...

Re: New Ural pulls to right, tried everything, now what?

And not to be picky about gender, just thought I'd let you know I'm a chick AND a first time side car owner. Which means I don't know what I don't know, and I'm trying to learn. :D Missed that as well, I am an old guy with gobs of experience on all sorts of stuff and I am in full learning mode. If ...

Re: Florida to Alaska 2019

Good deal on the Cassiar. Last time I ran it severely rutted despite the pavement. Logging trucks pushiness the pavement in. Its by far the more scenic route. Some real long flat and dull section up Dawson Creek on either side. We got some rain so hopefully the smoke is gone for him. I see post was ...

Re: Any problems with 2019 Ural's

Good deal! I didn't have to get back to a cycle either, I wanted to, my wife was fully on board (it was her fault I got back into it in the 80s!) Need to add in that on the 2019 the cylinder heads were revised (bigger more cooling) the pistons got a band to stop the slapping and the sump is bigger (...

Re: Any chess players?

I did when I was in high school and my one year of Collage (ran into a Cherokee from Oklahoma?) who made me realize how good a master chest player was, he could play 5 games against experienced chess player at a time and win all of them most of the time. That said, those are not my kind of pawns. Th...

Re: How Quick is your Ural?

Heidel has had a 2019 up to 83 mph and acceleration was not lagging (forget what model)

I have had the cT up to 70. That is plenty for me right now but I was not throttle limited.

On my pickup trip (2000 miles) I did 20% at 65 mph just fine.

Re: Oil Pan bolt washers

Unless the seal did not go around the bolts, any washer should work.

Possible bolts go into the empty space but that unusual.

Granted I am not a Ural specialist by any stretch.

I have replaced a lot of differential covers with silicone seal and no crush washers.

Re: Does a listing of Ural owners exist?

I think it was called the Black Book.

It was not a list of BMW owners, it was a list of owners who were willing to assist those who had issues.

It would be more worth to Ural owners in my view, BMW tended to upper scale, Ural owners not as much and fewer ports in the storm.

Re: new ural owner

After the first couple of rides, the wife said, "what were you thinking, buying this thing? That is what I was asking myself after the first couple of miles (having tried to run the side car up the side of a barricaded DID NOT HELP!) Thanks to the group and reading the reaction to it, I was ready a...

Re: Non-Ethanol Blended Gas

The Ural is the first rig I could tell the difference with between Ethanol and non. AK uses it in the winter for emissions purposes. As soon as I hit Washington State and all the stations I (err visited) had 10%, the MPG dropped to 33 mpg from an average of 37. I think I had half a tank left when I ...
