Re: What did you do to your Ural today?

I rode a 45 miles down the state hwy. and back, as the sun was heading towards the west...It's finally getting cool enough that an insulated riding jacket, and leather gloves feel good!

Re: Rethinking my Carburetor's and Exhaust....

Thanks for sharing...There are 130 mains and 45 pilots right now with 26mpg on crappy govt gas and 29 on e-Free93...at 58mph...Running rich enough to smell it, but same as yours is otherwise will the 145 mains make that much difference? ...That airbox sounds interesting! I'll have to check it out......
