Re: 2006 Ural Engine Heads-Compatible replacements?

Thanks Terry.

If I found '08 or '09 heads would they fit using my rocker assemblies?

2006 Ural Engine Heads-Compatible replacements?

I have a 2006 engine in my rig. The heads are beginning to fall apart. They are both cracked through the rocker box area. They weep oil when hot. They are now starting to crack through the casting where the header bolts are thread in. I figure replacement is as good a solution as any. They still run...

Re: Mud guards... or water funnels

Buy a proper set of Goretex armored motorcycle pants, matching jacket and full height Goretex lined touring boots and you will be dry and comfortable in any wet conditions. I'm a fan of Dainese and TCX but there are other choices. Plan on leaving a Grand behind and consider it an investment in lifet...

Wonder how fast it goes when you fire THAT gun? Recoil has to bite.

I'm assuming it's a rocket launcher (bazooka) so there is no recoil or explosive discharge in the tube.

Re: Winter Tires - with or without studs...

Thought I remember some Canadian posting a while back that he could not run his Ural during the Canadian winter because it was illegal to run on Canadian roads unless he had tires that were marked as Winter Tires. At that time there were no Ural sized tires specifically marked "Winter" on the sidewa...

Re: How many ride all year round? (Particularly in snowy climates)

12-31-08_1355.jpg In eastern Massachusetts I rode bike only for the final 9 years of my employment. Had a 40 mile (day total) commute on secondaries posted 45 or less. Used Dainese Goretex gear and heated grips under bar muffs and behind Ural Bat Wing Fairing and leg guards. Photo is me on the way ...

Re: FS: Sena SMH10 Bluetooth Communications $75 Shipped CONUS

H10 is an excellent unit even now, 7 years later. Mine has been through lots of use and weather without a problem. Units shown in the picture are set up with the boom mike for 3/4 helmets. Sena has a surface mount mike that goes inside a full face helmet. A complete new mount kit with internal mount...

Re: Funny or WTF photo thread

My wife and I went to check out the Lake Arrowhead State Park today. Had a near accident though when headed back to Jacksboro, Tx. to see that city though as a drunk driver and his buddies nearly ran us off the road. In fact, it was a car full of drunk and wild acting characters. I had to develop m...

Re: Hydrolocked engine

I learned the expensive way that pressure isn't needed for an injector to pass fuel. '87 BMW K100RS started and idled fine. It would rev to 4K with no load and be smooth. It just wouldn't go over 4 mph riding the bike! Turns out the fuel line popped off the output of the in tank fuel pump. Bike was ...

Re: 1967 BMW R50

NY wall[1].jpg Took more than a few hundred to put my '66 R60/2 back to approximately correct. But it really was a runner. Pretty much 70 mph from MA to MS and return. Engine didn't miss a beat. I added 50K miles to her history before sending her off to a new owner on the Left Coast. Wish Ural was ...

Re: 1967 BMW R50

Chromed and polished bits are not period correct. But the price isn't out of line and the discrepancies could be fixed.

Re: Tire Change Question

Never could get good stopping power with Duro on wet pavement.
They are cheap.
You often get what you pay for.
