Re: Why a Ural Costs 15K +

It's obvious that Ural has a commitment to gradual and continuing improvement I know that for a fact. I've seen much of the product development they do first hand. Several times they've asked to put prototype parts on my rig for real world testing, they've invited me to test ride prototypes, and ev...

Bellmetric did have the right size, but there not as tall as the original nut. Does that matter?
On my M70 a Fuji nut with plain washer is Ideal, leaving a couple of threads exposed. The studs are a bit short for the OE nylock and nordlock combination.

Re: Final Drive Nuts (2WD)

Van turned me on to Fuji nuts, and are what I used for my M70.

Re: Non-Ethanol Blended Gas

Do the EFIs need premium fuel is a debate I will leave for others. Just remember, it's not about compression, it's about HEAT. If anyone has the urge to argue about it, don't. It's my money, I'll do what I want, shutup and ride. If I put regular in either of my rigs, they sometimes run on, or have ...

Re: Non-Ethanol Blended Gas

I wouldn't bother with an EFI rig. For carbed rigs that don't get used often it may be a good idea. E fuel in the float bowl evaporating is the main issue.

Re: Oil Pan bolt washers

10 years ago I replace my drain bolt washers with nylon drainbolt washers from the local Ace hardware, still using those same washers. He's talking about the bolts that hold the pan on. Interisting, my 2007 has plain and split washer combination. My 2018 has Dowty washers. Didn't know they used cru...

Re: Why a Ural Costs 15K +

When I decided to get a new rig, I considered having a custom rig built, but decided against it. Having a new sidecar professionally installed on a new motorcycle can make a new Ural seem downright inexpensive.

A custom RTR Royal Enfield Twin with a DMC M72D would be more expensive than a 2019 cT.

Re: Why a Ural Costs 15K +

You miss my point -FUN CAN BE HAD WITH USED EQUIPMENT. & be sure to have your family taken care of, before shelling out $15K - or indenturing yourself, & maybe have some DISABILITY INSURANCE just in case.

Re: Oil Pan bolt washers

They're safer and easier to use than crush washers as they only need to be lightly snug to seal and stay in place. They will also last many years and oil changes.

Re: Why a Ural Costs 15K +

It amazes me how small minded some people are.

If someone has different needs, desires, and priorities from them, it's ignorant and arrogant to assume they're somehow foolish, or irresponsible.

I can´t see why someone should pay twice that price. Only reason would be to prevent voiding the warranty
Here in the US, a manufacturer can't void the warranty because the required service wasn't done by a dealer.

Re: Any problems with 2019 Ural's

I'd be unhappy without interchangeable drum brake wheels, Needing a dealer for some repairs - but mostly the insurmountable problem of PAYING what they cost. Not only can I not afford - I don't think they are WORTH IT. Buying used is much more cost effective. Just because it's a 2019 you are NOT es...

Re: HEAD TEMP GAUGES - Cheap

Or not.

The one on our grill isn't too bad now that it's summer, but the other 3 seasons it's worse, virtually unreadable, and effects accuracy.

But if so, at least they're way cheaper than my fancy CHT gauge which does the same.
