Re: What Causes Backfires

Lean mixture screw setting will cause this to happen especially off throttle when coasting down to a stoplight or something. Not sure if it is your problem but you could try to turn the screws CCW and richen the mix a bit, maybe 1/2 turn to start and see if it goes away, if not give it a bit more un...

Re: 2019-2020 Fuel Filter

I like having the disconnect for tank removal but I have found that when I try to remove or re-attach the fitting that it is very difficult due to the ethanol making the buna rubber seals swell so bad that it won't fit back together. Viton seals would help. Anyone else had this problem? :(

Re: Valve head gaskets/ cylinder honing?

Run it for a while and give the rings a chance to seat themselves, maybe 200km's and try a compression test again with wide open throttle and see if it the compression has improved. The hissing you heard may have been a cylinder on the compression stroke and one of the EX valves was just starting to...

Re: What is YOUR average yearly miles?

I got mine 10 years ago and it has 93K on it now. The Ural allows me to ride all year round weather permitting and I make it a point to ride at least once per month or more since I got it. :cheers:

Re: Test ride or class Colorado

I found it easy to learn my rig but I had many years of Enduro and MX experience behind me. They dropped the rig off at my house and gave me a 20 minute lesson on how it works and what to watch out for and after they left I grabbed a jacket and hit the road. I took it easy and found it was not as tr...

Re: Newb questions

If you can afford it I would suggest going with the 2020 CT. If you don't need 2WD don't buy it. The 1WD models are going to handle a bit better and have more top speed due to the FD gearing. The new Urals are as close as they have gotten to "honda" reliability and with the 2 year warranty you will ...

Re: Gear Up increased suspension travel

I run the Hagon shocks on mine and they work fine. Improving the ride quality with the right springs and damping will be of greater value than more travel IMO. Frame will not allow much change in ride height anyway so making it track and roll through the rough stuff smoothly when off-road was my goa...

Looks like it got new aluminum rims and spokes along the way. Nice upgrade. :)

Re: Parking the bike...

Sergey will take care of you and do his magic on your engine. He did mine 8 years ago when it had about 18K klicks on it and failed. Since then I have over 92,000km's on it and it runs like the proverbial swiss watch, a little noisier than a watch but plenty strong like OX, LOL. Best of luck and man...

Re: Do I Need an Oil Cooler?

Most likely you will not get any power back running a cooler in hot weather. The hot air at 90+ is down on Oxygen and all engines will be short of full power. Not much one can do about that unfortunately even with EFI. The cooler will help keep internal temps down a bit but with the pump output bein...

Re: Nervous

Congrats on the new rig! Now take it out everyday and ride the crap out of it! Especially during the warranty period, get as many miles as you can under it and get any issues resolved before the warranty expires. To many of these rigs sit during the warranty and when problems come up later it can be...

Re: Rear main bearing

I also have a 2010 engine and there was a problem with the welder setup that attaches the slingers and roughly 50 engines got out with weak welds. I had one of those and got the same swarf on my drain plug too. I contacted IMZ service (Jason) and he was aware of the issue. I had to return my engine ...

Re: Has anyone seen this? 1700cc engine

I don't think that motor will last very long. The bore is to big for those cylinders, sleeve is very thin and to close to the stud holes. When it heats up it will distort like crazy, not enough metal for an air-cooled engine to shed heat into. I could be wrong but I bet it eats head gaskets and burn...

It has the new front cover with spin-on filter and 2013 branch pipes as well. Someone kept up on the changes. :)
