Re: Where do I get this reverse lever?

Probably the best investment and most used extra ever on my Ural. Gets used at every stop light as a neutral finder.

Re: .38 ACP ?

I have a pre ban Colt H-BAR sporter and a Russian SKS both purchased when I lived in Ca. Both had to be registered when the ban started and The ATF never came to get them.
Now living in Ky. anything goes.

You might look into the Virginia City area. Lots of old mines and little roads.

Re: Going to check out a Ural tomorrow - Excited

I think asking a new Ural to do 5000km without adjustments is asking a bit much. I think I aligned my rig about 5 times before I got it to my liking. Plus valve adjustments, fluid changes (esp. the final drive) small adjustments like clutch, bars and levers take awhile to get just right. Ride it eve...

Re: Stumped by lean condition.

For the heck of it put a couple of new sparkplugs in it. Last time mine acted up like that one plug cured it.

Be careful. His wording is a bit fishy. "my dad's brother" was my uncle for example.

I saw him kick it too. Remember, you could hand crank early V Dubs.
His workmanship was the high point.

Re: 2000 Ural in New Hampshire

It's missing both side covers. The left side could have fallen off but not the right side.
Cosmetic condition is very good.
