I AM going to drive to Holopaw next Tuesday! Only a couple of hours away. Me and The Monkey will consider it a pilgrimage. Full report with photos on Wednesday.

Re: wtb 04 tourist drive shaft fork w/flange a$$'y

Thanks for everyone's input. I think I am going to bite the bullet and send the FD to Gene and have the "improved" gear set/fork repair done, along with a new splined hub. We shall see how that goes. Who knows, maybe I'll drive it down there and "assist" with the repair, now that I live in Florida.

wtb 04 tourist drive shaft fork w/flange a$$'y

https://live.uralcatalog.com/details/295 see #3 in parts catalog photo. Apparently, the u-joint attaching the drive shaft to the final drive is NOT available from URAL as a stand-alone item anymore. It is only available if you purchase a entire new final drive gear set!!! Holopaw Gene can't get one,...

Re: Kick start lever remove - riding without it

LOL. Nope still wearing 33/32's. Maybe a Tourist is set up differently.

Re: Kick start lever remove - riding without it

Less fatiguing to use your toe to push down to upshift- no shin splints. Better control in getting the right amount of "stomp" to shift up. IMHO

Re: New rear shocks in my future...

Highly recommend the Hagon's, Marty. PO of 'Charlie' had all five shocks done in Hagon's (great gift to me...thanks HDBeagle), and I have found them to be trouble free, durable and shiny to boot.

Re: Perils of a Raceway Hand Shifter

...Doh! :feelsgood: I have found that most of my URAL problems are due to pilot dumb-assedness. Except for the stud pulling, ring blowing, spline chewing stuff, of course. Glad it was an "easy" fix. H N Y!

Re: National Ural Rally Day - 2017 Site UP!

I go the IMZ site link, and I don't see anywhere to enter results. Am I dense? :?

My cousin's grand-niece sure took a shine to her new, same-name buddy.

Re: Adjusting valves on the tub side.

... I may have to take the tub off.... Disconnect the electrics and remove the (empty!) tub from the frame ONLY. No need to unhinge the thing. May need a helper to get the tub on the ground. Once done, you have a frame to place a 2x12 on for easy sitting and access. In fact once the tub is off, you...
