Re: 2017 Speedometer...

A replacement speedo can have it's miles set to match actual miles when installed, then it's locked and can't be changed.

Re: 2017 Rear brake light switch not working

I forgot to add, I was wondering what the reliablilty is like for the later hydraulic switch option; not that great according to this. :( Unless hopefully it's a wiring issue. (?) It's going to be hit and miss with cheap components like the brake switch, but being sealed it's probably going to be b...

Re: 2017 Rear brake light switch not working

When I converted from a mechanical to a hydraulic switch, I gently pushed on the brake pedal while switching out the banjo bolts. I kept a small amount of fluid coming out of the joint until I tightened down the banjo. I didn't need to bleed the system afterwards. No sponginess. I was going to ment...

Re: $7k 2012 vs $12k 2015

I have one of each, newer is better for a daily rider. To date, my 2018 M70 has been gas and go other than scheduled maintenance.

Plus if you've got Enduro seat or similar that has to come off too.
I'm just taking about popping off the cross over hose momentarily to make sure its not blocked, not removing the tank.

Can you post a couple of pics of the hydraulic line routing from lever down to slave cylinder?
I can when I get home, but it's basically the same as the cable was, just more slack.

Re: Broke the fuel cross-over connector. Now what?

....Supposedly.... The O rings Goodridge uses are suitable for todays fuels. So far, so good, but I've only had it about 7 months. Time will tell.

No, wouldn’t know how to do that. I’m pretty sure that the tank was actually empty. When I filled it it ended up taking the entire capacity of the tank.
Just disconnect it, if it's not blocked fuel will flow from both sides.

Re: Group Effort: Low Fuel Switch that Works

Sorry, I guess I should have clarified. Yes, at the time I had run out of gas. The light had not come on. The picture of the inside of the tank was taken earlier (with fuel in there). I was just driving around today and monitoring the fuel in the tank trying to get the light to come on to test (hop...

Re: Group Effort: Low Fuel Switch that Works

Did you run out of fuel, or drain the tank without it coming on? In the picture the fuel level isn't low enough for it to function.

Re: Hydraulic clutch

I went ahead and installed it, I'll just run 1 mirror for a few days. The numbers with a cheap fish scale, With OE cable, 2007 Patrol - 5lbs to hold in clutch. 2018 M70 - 9lbs to hold in clutch. With Magura, 2018 M70 - 7lbs to hold in clutch, about a 22% reduction. The Magura is so much smoother it ...

Re: Broke the fuel cross-over connector. Now what?

That's an aftermarket item, not OEM.

The metal ones are more robust,,

Re: Hydraulic clutch

Just waiting on one of these, bracket-2700177.jpg These Magura hydraulic clutch conversions have been around quite a while for a wide variety of applications, and well documented, it's just "new" for a Ural. The typical results are around a 25% reduction in effort, smoother operation, better feel, a...
