Re: Weirdly broken rocker?

That missing chunk was likely a casting flaw and happened during the after-casting clean up process before the rocker was machined and installed in the motor. If you've got metal bits in the cyl, seriously doubt they came from the rocker casting. Granted not normal or pretty but that's not a critica...

Re: Shipping vs Riding for a Newbie

If you keep your head in the game and don't get over confident you'll prolly be fine. I took my very first sidecar ride on a used 06 Ural via a fly-n-ride from Reno to WA, 1500 miles at age 60 with 40+ years two wheel street experience. The 2 wheel experience was a handicap not a plus. The were a co...

. I have the vale covers off at this very moment and looks like they are good and set at 0.04 thousands.
What math/tools/measurement system you using?
0.04 is "hundredths" not thousands. Specs for an 06 are metric/0.05-0.1 mm or SAE/0.002-0.004 inches.

Re: Identifying Ural

Any current source for those pipe fins? Every little bit helps ... Some US Ural dealers used to sell the aftermarket clamp-on ones.Some prolly still do. It was a pretty limited market as they are only for the early pre-06 slip-in head pipes. In 06 IMZ went to flanged bolt-on header pipes. IMHO, the...

Re: Identifying Ural

Looking at your air box and transmission would date it earlier than 1998.5 here in the United States. Though I'm not sure when the European bike went to an electrical starter. Your style of air box went out when electrical starters were put on Urals. That was also my first thought, older than 2002....

Re: Bike won't move

Mike H. the clutch was not engaging. They sent me pictures, the clutch teeth were worn. I don't know how to post pictures so can't show wear. But my spline looks like it has similar wear to Lokiboy's. Repairing gearbox is $1300+, new gearbox is$1400. So total job with new clutch assembly is $2900+ ...

Re: Odometer

I think all the pre-digital era speedo/odos are kms. My 011 and 014 both are. Suspect an 012 would be also. A clue would be are the face speed numbers in kph or mph?

Re: A little mechanical help with a wrecked rig?

Gonna take some time via a hands on close inspection not internet photos to determine what's still useable so far as the expensive bits are concerned. :( Parting out wrecked bikes is a slow time consuming PITA on bikes with no real market demand and generally not worth much even when complete and ru...

Marty, congrats on the freshening-up! The XS' were great bikes. Essentially Bonevilles that didn't leak. :)
Sooo glad you didn't molest it into a cafe, bobber or silly street fighter wannabe. Yam got it right from day one. :thumbsup:

Re: Occasional sputter

I don't think it's electrical, the last ride was significantly worse, completely lost power as if turning the ignition off. There was no way to rev motor to try to work through it, completely shut down. However as quickly as it died, I would coast with the clutch pulled in and restart it as I coast...

Congrats! Curious, you gonna ride it to Anchorage or take the ferry from WA to Juneau via the inside passage? HIGHLY recommended! You can get a local ferry from Juneau to Skagway or Haines to hook you back up with the AK road system. Absolutely gorgeous boat trip and quick too. By ferry it's like 3 ...

In the mean time to get you started check out Billy G's Ural web manual. http://myural.com/servicemanual.htm Normal Ural servicing and maint isn't hard or high tech or requires expensive exotic tools.

Re: WHat would YOU pick?

For "my" needs/use, I'd go '19CT w/o a 2nd thought. Other than waiting till spring 2020 and get a left over 019GU for a 2020CT price?
