Re: 15 Ct battery / Spark plug #

Any 20Ah battery that meets the physical dimensions with the terminals in the correct location will work. Prolly better off shopping at a garden/lawn tractor supply place than an autoparts store. Plugs should be NGK BPR6HS. You didn't get the owners manual with your Ural? :(

Re: Call for new product ideas! Hemisphere Offroad wants to hear from you!

Are you set on using alum? If choices were limited to A,B,C I wouldn't even consider C. B looks like traction would be a one-way street and a mud catcher. From those choices I would think A with a lipped perimeter/border would be the best compromise? Just my opinion but I would build with steel not ...

Re: Call for new product ideas! Hemisphere Offroad wants to hear from you!

OK, so I'm hearing.... "We want affordable floorboards." Great! Thanks for the input. What would be as realistic price that you would be willing to pay for floorboards? And are there any specific features you'd like to see? This is a wonderful conversation - thanks, all! A sturdy coarse open mesh w...

I'd be interested in sturdy non-slip foot boxes/running boards. Raceway's offers some excellent foot boxes but the price is beyond insane.

Re: 2011 Retro dies when hot

Prolly not the issue but easy to check. Is the vac hose from the carb to petcock rotted/leaking? If it's leaking there won't be enough vac to pull the petcock diaphragm fully open. In turn eng quits when the fuel bowls are empty. Try running with the petcock in the PRIme position and see if the prob...

Re: Not much of a mod, but it's my first and it makes me happy.

Jerry Can or Rotopax mount would likely be a better fit for my use, much as I don't want to drill holes in the sidecar. Code, I understand your reluctance to drill into your shiny new tub but get over it. An aux fuel can is a great permanent mod that "will" save your butt eventually. Drilling holes...

Re: Anyone Here Lemon Law Ever?

Ural extended my warranty yesterday for all the troubles I’ve had. When my tank comes in, that will probably be the last time I go to that dealer. I’ve given them so many chances, it’s unreal. They are the cause of my sour experience with Ural. That's good news. Though IMZ in Irbit still has metall...

Re: Not much of a mod, but it's my first and it makes me happy.

Very nice. I'd seen similar setups but didn't want to overload the electrical system so I just went with the $10 Harbor Freight special. Most elec horns regardless of brand are high current draw items and should be triggered via a relay. A properly wired relay will protect the wiring and allow the ...

Re: Experience With Winch

Nope but have had pretty fair experience running oopsie...extraction gear. Key to any towing or retrieval gear/winch is the mounting system. From what I remember of UNE's video of their really expensive system is that it's bolted to the tub bumper and the stock bumperonly has the rear 2 bolts to the...

I too would not dig the hole larger for a plug.:( But, I also would put a patch on the inside before installing the tube.

Re: First Aid Kits - are you packing?

If you're not trained you don't need an extensive kit that you aren't qualified to use. I've had to take the basic first aide class every 5 years to maintain my cap'n's license.
