Re: Dragon Capsule Splashdown and Oil Platforms

After sailing the Gulf I'd be more worried about coming down on rocks or a sand bar. Place doesn't have any water!

This one is from ‎2004. Ural girls. :D

I'm jealous.


MINE didn't come with that option!

I thought the 2004 had a front disk brake?

Re: WTB C5 ignition{CD-1/MC-2} new or used

Last I read C5 stopped support for their Ural optical ignitions.
So purchase price better reflect the lack of support for the product.

From their website today:
"We no longer offer ignition systems. Manuals will remain here for customer support."

Re: Frame to head interference

A technician might work unsuccessfully for several hours trying to solve a problem with a machine in the field. He finally leaves and heads to the next service call. Often the solution to the unresolved problem comes to him during this unfocused drive time. When I'd get stuck on a problem I'd forget...

Re: Frame to head interference

I adjusted the sidecar frame with a 3# sledge to put a "D" shaped section into the frame tube (flat under cylinder). Gene said this was a common way to fit the 750 engine into the 650 engine frames. Took a serious bit of persuasion. The '96 frame is really heavy walled tubing. Sidecar floor is level...

A shame people are not held responsible for their kids when they grow up to.
There's a whole pile of lawyers in the US who have argued successfuly that the parental responsiblity doesn't end at 18. :x Bottom line is that being innocent has almost the same costs as being guilty.

Re: Parts interchangeability

For that amount of money a BMW conversion starts looking really attractive. A guy showed up at the open house Ural had to introduce the 2019s riding a BMW conversion, and he said they're comparable. It would take some luck and a well equipped machine shop to do it cheaper these days. Airheads are a...

Re: are my piston rings one of a kind cose i cant find any place to buy them

I know the 650 engine had at least two different thickness rings. They were not interchangeable. Holopaw Ural (Gene) probably can help you.

Re: Rear Brake Problem - Not Really Solved....

New case means you get to re-shim the gears. As long as you are comfortable with setting tooth contact patches with Prussian Blue the rebuild is easy. Get it wrong and you might snap an improperly loaded gear tooth, lock up your rear wheel and crash. All the pressed in parts in the case come out wit...

Re: Rear Brake Problem - Not Really Solved....

Drive really is rebuildable. I've bought a couple of inboard drive housings off of Gene at Holopaw. Final drive case (2WD) IMZ-8.107-05101-11 is one of the numbers for the case. And it's almost one size fits all until you get to the rear disk brake models. I put a modern inboard case on my '96 Sport...
