Re: Question? Torqueing the flywheel bolt

Wedge the 19X22 open wrench between one of the holes in the flywheel and engine case. See my manual below in signature.

Re: Questions about fitting a Ural 650 head with valve stem seals and brass valve guides

It’s a frigging Russian motorcycle not a BMW. Sleeve the valve guides with bronze inserts, quick hone and new rings. Warm it up and whip it up and down the gears like you stole it for 15 minutes. Done.

Re: Hog hunting

Come to FL. Anywhere. Volusia County would welcome you with open arms. We have plenty of hogs for the taking. Just try and not shoot the mule foot's...they're a "heirloom" variety.

Re: iKon Suspension for Urals

I wrote Rodger x3 a couple month ago lto return the shocks but never heard back. Side tracked with work as the company I work for got bought out and was swamped in the transition. Walked into the shop and saw the box...figured I’d better jump back on it...

Re: Right carburetor on 2012 patrol

You need to adjust the mixture screw CCW to enrichen the mixture if it is getting colder. Denser (cold) air means leaner running if your carbs are set-up for summer temps. 1/2 turn out should do it. Don’t forget to screw it back in when the temps warm up again.

Re: Kick-Staring for Millenials

Hell, try telling most stick shift drivers they don’t need to use the clutch except for 1st and reverse and see what looks you get...don’t need to use it on a motorcycle either for that matter.

Re: Dutch shepherd

You getting a normal, long hair or curly coat? Never had one...I was raised with German Shepard’s and then switched over to APBT’s. Shouldn’t be much different. Love to please, need a firm hand, training and lots of exercise...or you’ll have problems. But that’s true if most all dogs.

Re: iKon Suspension for Urals

I have finished (finally) beating on the test shocks and springs. Unfortunately I had an issue on the rear position with the shocks hitting the swing arm frame and not being able to reach the upper mount. The longer bottom mount on the sidecar shock would work on the left rear but not the right rear...

Re: 184 mph...on a bicycle!

Hell, when I was racing bicycles and training everyday, I’d draft behind dump trucks, buses and semi’s on US-1 and if I stayed a foot off the rear bumper I’d crack 60 mph in flat ground...d@mn near a vacuum back there...would just suck me along. I’d have given my left nut to get a tow to 100...
