Re: WTB - POWER ARC CONTROLLER

Just got off the phone with Gary. PowerArc is still producing motorcycle ignition systems and supplying support for them. Currently they are working out problems with distribution. You have to send him an email through his website contact page. http://www.powerarc.com/contactmenu.html He will email ...

Re: PAYPAL WARNING

Never had problems closing cable. Do it every year at migration to Florida. Comcast (Xfinity), just bring the hardware to any UPS store and dump it in their lap. They immediately cancel the Comcast account and ship the stuff back to Comcast. Its FREE!

Re: Knucklewarmers?

Picture of my bar warmers shows them without additional internal support. They are light enough to not bother the levers. They are cloth over foam. The foam allows them to retain shape when installed.

These are originally for a snowmobile. I've ridden down to 3°F with them and hands were comfortable and dry.
It is most important that ALL openings are fully closed to stop any air circulation from stealing your heat.

Re: PAYPAL WARNING

PayPal also sends a 1099 to the IRS showing every dollar you receive. Might be okay if you are running a business and moving documented inventory at a profit. But its a bite in the butt if you you are unloading old personal possessions at a loss. You get taxed as if your sales are 100% profit.

Re: WTB - POWER ARC CONTROLLER

Not that I'd part with my spare, but there are two versions. Probably should post which one you are looking for. Early one switches and supplies full power to coil. Later unit just sends "fire" signal to coil that has power supplied directly from ignition. Coils are distinctly different. So is the s...

Re: 2015 Ural CT

I'm comfortable betting on a machine's current condition. But I also remember certain faults were model year related. Like one year a few frames cracked in the swing arm. Another year it was rocker arms breaking in half. Yet another year favored slingers falling off crank counterweights. I'm just ki...

<SNIP>Why Ural used those hex head spoke nipples I'll never know.
Those hex headed nipples sure make Ural wheel building quick and easy.

Re: Wheel Bearings

That looks like the spacer for the ball bearing wheel set. It was thicker to center the bearing stack in the hub. Ball bearings are narrower than the taper roller stack.

Re: Wheel Bearings

Have installed a new set of Timken new wheel bearings and can't tell if I have the outer race seated correctly.
