Re: 2018 LE for $14k/ 2017 GU w/extras for $11k

Sounds like typical car dealers 'bait and switch' promo for "one" rig and when you get there. "Gee, sorry that just sold an hour ago but we have great deals on lots of others here."

Re: Weird headlight issue

Voltage drop in the low beam circuit? Have you checked and/or cleaned your electrical connections? +1 I'm no electrician but that'd be where I'd start. I think by 014 Ural no longer powered the headlamp via a relay so you get less current flow running through the cheap switch gear/wiring. Add corro...

Re: Am I forcing myself?

If fwy commuting is your main goal, I'd say wrong tool for the job. I've never had a FD failure on any Ural but I live in the 50-60mph two lane world. From what I seen here on the forum seems most folks with FD failures do a lot of Interstate flying at 60+? The motors will handle it but will the FD?...

Re: heated grips

#1. is subjective but I'd say not hard. #2. don't remember the bad brand names but I've run Oxford Heaterz on a couple bikes and they worked and held up well. I don't like Oxfords heat control switch. Awkward to use with winter gloves so I rewire them to use a 3 way handlebar toggle off/low/high. I'...

Re: Engine case cleaning

Don't know any easy/cheap/magic tricks. For grease/grime removal I scrape the big clumps out of the corners etc. I've used engine gunk and it helps for the oily/greasey stuff. The stained areas require old fashioned elbow grease and a stiff parts brush and solvent. Verisol(sp?) was a good parts wash...

Re: Gas Can Spout - Update

but which spout?
If the spout is for a nato can, real or knock off the the mount/can opening is the same. I have a package of the gaskets in the link and they work excellent on the few(4?) Nato cans I have.

Re: Gas Can Spout - Update

I think your NATO can with spout is probably the best option out there. If I was starting fresh I would definitely go with that setup. My can right now is mounted in the same location as yours (back left) and the space between the spare wheel and top of the can is minimal. Given that, I didn't want...

Re: Twin discs up front?

I would not put DOT 5 in place of DOT 3 or 4 if that is what you are suggesting. +1 Use only what your owners manual recommends. Dot 5(synthetic) fluid is not compatible with Dot 4 rubber bits and bad juju happens. As mentioned previously use your eng/trans for long downhill stretches. Don't ride t...

Re: Softer suspension

I'd think your plan is on hold till Ikon comes out with their offer and see what you think. Hagons are nice on two wheelers but never ran em on a 3 wheeler? These rigs are Utility outfits, not Isle of Mann contenders or 4x4 Jeeps. For most of "my" off-pavement work and pavement rides I find the Sach...

Re: Jets jets jets

Your jetting is ballpark ok. Every motor varies. In my 011 I run 122's/40's w/2 shims on the needles. Only reason I went to 40 pilots is for winter starting. Your jetting is a common mod. Pretty sure Gene in FL recommended it huh? The 65 jet is the starting jet. DO NOT change the size or bugger it u...
