Re: 2005 double starter relays

Your 05 has 2 starter relays seems odd unless you're calling the starter solenoid a relay? My 06 only had 2 relays total: one for the starter and one for the headlight.Both are identical common 30/40A 12v automotive relays and interchangeable. Yeah I also have a solenoid that requires high current(p...

Re: 2005 double starter relays

Disclaimer: I am not an electrician. Yeah an old school HD button switch should work somewhat for awhile. If you're already having to check voltages that button is going to be a big resistor in the flow. The newer style wiring w/relay triggered via low current switch is much more efficient for getti...

Re: Off road tires

Don't know what you have on your 012 but Urals do not come stock w off road tires. Yeah you can get optional medium lugged semi-knobbies. Stock tires are Duro 308's(street/pave tread) and yeah after a couple thou kms and with still lotsa tread they suck on pavement in the rain. And always sucked off...

Re: Bogged down

I just purchased the bike and this was an original issue I had with it, this is why I went so big on the carb jets. Sorry to keep clogging up your thread but the above does shine some possible clarity on things. Worst thing about buying used bikes w/issues is sorting out theprevious owners "hopeful...

Re: Philippine vacation video

What got me there in the first place was word of mouth about how beautiful it is and how crazy cheap it was. They were right but left out how great the people were. Spent a couple quick weeks there and liked it enough to go back for a couple months and "really" liked enough to consider retiring ther...

Re: Bogged down

Vito, did you have this issue previously and tried fixing it with larger jets or new issue since tweaking the carbs? In any case IMHO 140 mains are HUGE for stock intake and exhaust. My 06 wouldn't run worth crap on those. I experimented with a lot of sizes trying for a smidge more power. Never did ...

Re: Bogged down

Dang Vito, it runs normal with the branch pipes removed but yet won't with the air filter removed and pipes installed. Hurts my little brain understanding that. :? Think I'd starting leaning toward an ign adv problem?

Re: Philippine vacation video

Chuck, what area of the Philippines was that video taken? Sounds like a fun trip. Love the less congested areas of the Philippines. I haven't been back since 90 or so and the little sidecar outfits weren't yet common. I suspect they will eventually morph into seriously over decorated rigs along the ...

Re: Bogged down

Certainly sounds like an air flow starvation issue causing a really rich fuel condition? First thing I'd suspect is an over oiled air filter. Is it hard to get started? Too rich can make it harder to start. Hows your plugs look? I checked the pet for flow, good, float levels, good, cleaned and jette...

Re: Sporadic engine light

I don't know zip about all this computerized voodoo stuff Only basics I'm aware of is that it needs excellent cean voltage so a getting tired poor condition batt can cause odd grief with the puter. Also moisture and even minor corrosion can sidetrack/confuse the computer. Only thing I would be able ...

Re: My new 2008 Gear-up needs some spokes

-So I decided to spend less than one minute using Google and found that UralNE has them for $5 each. There is my answer. Good plan. Well established knowledgable dealers are our friends for "correct" parts. :thumbsup: You could get lucky and find some generic vendor that can do cheaper but it's a g...
