Re: Choosing routes for Urals

Lofty -
If they believe that I stood up to fart in their general direction, and that their father smelt of elderberries, all the better.
Great reference snuck in there!

Re: 2020 Gear-up up-grades and side-grades

I'd completely forgotten about not being able to cross over in either direction! Sorry, "normal mind" instead of "pandemic mind".

Re: steep ascents and descents

Couple of other things you can do while you wait for your jets. On air cooled engines lean is bad. It's a sure way to end up in the holy piston club over time. The guys at PowerArc told me that running high test is about the equivalent of a 2 degree timing retard. (The PA has 2 advance curves, and o...

Re: Soviet Steeds on MeWe

Yep - all the in-depth info is here on the forum. More media outlets just means dilution and confusion.

If you want to talk about Urals & Dneprs, come here.

Re: 2007 Ural For Sale

Ural USA no longer support 2010 and earlier motorcycles. That means Ural Dealers may not work on those older bikes and may no longer have parts for them. ScottE - I have no idea where you are getting your information, but Ural dealers have lots of parts for old bikes and do service on them regularl...

Re: New Sidecar Girl

Terry Crawford probably has the biggest supply of 650 parts on this side of the ocean when you start needing them ( crawfordsales. Info ) And if Terry doesn't have what you need, Ural-zentrale in Germany has an amazing list of older parts. ( https://www.ural-zentrale.de/en/index ) Ask here on the fo...

Re: 1st Ride of 2021

Man, your rig looks astounding for it's age. Beautiful job of maintaining it. Happy New Year.
Thanks. I keep lusting after a 2019+ EFI bike, but then I take her out and every time I do I come back saying, "Damn, this bike is really running sweet."

Re: 1st Ride of 2021

This one needs some explanation. The local American Legion post has been trying to start a Legion Riders group for awhile. The scoutmaster of my son's old Boy Scout troop is chaplain of the post. He called me up on New Year's Eve and asked if I wanted to ride with them, so I threw down the gauntlet ...

Re: Fork rebuild

I'm not aware of any info on a rebuild. There's a video covering routine oil change, but that's about it. You can still find parts for the forks, but you'll have to search for your specific type. Other than Terry Crawford, I'd look here: https://www.ural-zentrale.de/de/fahrwerk/telegabel-dnepr-ural ...

Re: Headers needed for 2002

I gave my push on headers 1 wrap with adhesive metal muffler tape, placed a block of wood in front of them and persuaded them to fit snugly with a BFH. Tightened down the clamps and they seem to be holding tight. On my 2003 I used some stove gasket rope to seal the gap. What would Ivan do? Rougaroo

Re: What's for Christmas dinner?

Can't outdo pork brains!

Our son went to university in Canada. We got into a Quebec Christmas tradition, a tourtiere. It's a meat pie made with ground beef, pork, and veal, seasoned with allspice, thyme, savory, nutmeg, and a little red pepper. Real good!
