Re: Truck bed liner paint.

When I got mine I hand brushed some Duplicolor bedliner on the underside of the sidecar, under all the fenders, sidecar frame and inside the bottom of the sidecar tub. 10 years later it all still looks good and no rust as yet. Maybe $50 invested in bedliner, brushes, tape, & gloves. Nothing fancy bu...

Re: What did you do to your Ural today?

Ahh, one of the fortunate ones to have a Sergey built motor. Best of luck with it, mine has more than 80,000 klicks on it since he rebuilt it back in 2012 and it runs like a top. Getting close to 100K and hope to see many more. Take good care of it and it will reward you with many miles of service. ...

Re: Oil not getting to right cylinder head

Oil to the heads is slung by the crank slingers down the pushrod tubes to lube the valves & rocker arms. Are you getting any oil pressure at all? is the pump working? :?

Re: Pistol caliber carbines?

All good points, I keep a G17 with light in my nitestand next to the bed and a Rem 870 with 00 buck shot in the closet near the door. I bought a Ruger PC9 carbine recently and like it a lot. I replaced the stock with a chassis setup & forend, pistol grip, and adjustable buttstock AND 30 round Glock ...

Re: 825cc M2Boxer EFI first ride

Thanks for bringing that up Dave, yes indeed dual plugging the heads will go a long way to keeping that engine alive. I had terrible problems with my 1979 FLH which has a 93" motor that detonated itself to death. Same problem with the offset plugs. I rebuilt it and knew I had to do something about i...

Re: 825cc M2Boxer EFI first ride

Do your new engine a favor and stick to high octane fuel. The Ural engine design(hemi 2 valve with offset plug) is prone to detonate right out of the box, the factory knows this all to well. The bigger bore will only make it worse. Not worth it, and remember that you only hear the worst of it, it ca...

Re: Broke out old warhorse for the Fourth: 92FS

Sagerat, I have the M9A1 and it's an excellent choice. Better checkering, mil-spec rail, thicker trigger guard, mags with a slick anti-stick coating. I added some Wilson Combat goodies like the dark cherry ultra thins grips(she's gotta fat butt), :lol: , trigger bar and spring kit to make the DA/SA ...

Re: Ural sighting and conversation

Me too, I think about it but I have so much time & effort invested in my 2010 to get it to my liking and running reliably that I can't see myself trading it in or selling it outright. I would have to add a new 202something to the stable and perhaps re-make the 2010 into "Predator 2.0 Northeast versi...

Re: Squeak a bit more power

If the engine had a stouter bottom end with a forged crank & rods, better bearings and a real oil pump there might be room to play around and push it a bit. As it is now with a pressed assembly and just enough support to survive normal use it is often futile to push it any harder or you may end up w...

Re: 2013 points ignition conversion

Make sure you test the voltage issue and verify you are working with a full 12+ volts coming from the BRS going to the coil or you might have the same problem of a weak spark. :)

Re: Low Octane fuel is regularly giving 825cc engine knock

Detonation can't always be heard. We see detonation damage often and the owners say they never heard a thing (marbles in a can). Air-cooled engines are typically louder than water-cooled as the water-jacket can absorb the noise and hide the fact it is hammering away. OEM's spend massive amounts of m...

Ignition switch maybe? perhaps an internal connection broke. Ducati black box failure?, check under the left side cover and make sure all the connections are OK on the module. :?

Re: 2013 points ignition conversion

Don't give up just yet, it might be a simple fix. If the PA is still firing and working it might be a low voltage problem, kill switch issue, coil connections, etc. A number of things could be causing a voltage drop somewhere that might be causing your weak spark. Just some thoughts.
