Re: New Addition -MV750

I'm just pulling your leg. There is a very easy way to tell - the 2WD engagement handle mount on the right-side frame. See attached. Enjoy the MV!

Sorry to hear about your loss.

I'm a fan having owned a good running 650.

First of all, it looks better than the 750. The throttle response is noticeably quicker, plus starts easily and idles well.

Below 50-55 mph they pull at least as well as a carbed 750, then the extra cc's show.
Shhhhhh.
Don't let anyone know.

Re: HEAD TEMP GAUGES - Cheap

If anyone has any more detail or lessons learned i would appreciate the information. There used to be a thread over on Russian Iron about these including mounting, thoughts, etc started by "The Borg". That was all lost in the purge. The Borg also had a store for older Dnepr and Ural parts. When he ...

Re: Rt cylinder hiss

Sometimes they hiss from the pushrod tubes and the tube seals. Case pressure seeking path of least resistance.
If you have a good tool friend, they could have a sonic leak detector.

Re: Carb/ Valve issues. Very poor running, misfiring, backfiring and stalling out and more...

You took me out of context. Do you work for a newspaper? Here is the entire statement. If you have points, you need some advance at idle. Most ignitions run at some amount of advance, ie X deg BTDC. How it is achieved depends on the ignition type. Bite me. There is a firing mark BTDC (both Ural and...

I don't want to start a war, but unless those K65Ts have been sitting a long long time with old gummy gas, I doubt they are the problem. Besides the rare adjustment, You will likely only need to loctite the main jet post (check to see if it is loose by dropping the bowls and confirming) and the o-ri...

Re: Carb/ Valve issues. Very poor running, misfiring, backfiring and stalling out and more...

Electronic ignition systems can act strangely with weak batteries, damaged components and/or loose rotors. Without knowing what ignition system is currently installed, no way to troubleshoot or explain the setup. Backfiring (out of intake) can be too advanced ignition as well. <--- however it may be...

Re: Carb/ Valve issues. Very poor running, misfiring, backfiring and stalling out and more...

I would say your problem is most like ignition and possibly a weak battery.
Personally, I'd retrofit points.
Many choose to go with the "Type 3" electronic ignition https://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-Electronic ... 1992394214

Re: Ural When Did It Go to OHV?

Early 60s with the M61.

Edit - at least this is the model you are likely to find.
There were earlier models, but you won't find those in the wild.

Re: Dnepr mt11 alternator woes

Over the years, I have had similar experience as Claus.
I am lucky to have purchased a "Victor" alternator years ago. It has worked wonderfully.

My friend uses the one listed in Claus' link.

Re: M72 sidestand

Thanks Jaybird, it is helpful.
I'll get back around to that project sometime.
I'll probably just build my own mount and use a stand and spring from one of my prior mis-steps.

Re: Possible 1961 K750 purchase please advise

Too much $$ for that bike. It is not likely a "Yuri" bike. However, all the military stuff has been added and really not that well. Handlebars and controls are not original style. Carbs and air tubes not original style. Bike is probably worth 1/2 asking price. You could get an MV750 (real military, ...

Re: Non-Ethanol Blended Gas

Sorta simple - Ethanol blend has less energy density that pure gas. Meaning you can get more energy out of pure gas than the blend (read, better mileage). Also, as mentioned, ethanol is hygroscopic. Two very good reasons not to use it. Add in all the crop irrigation, mono-crop BS, pesticides, herdic...
