carrying spares and state inspection

Local HD didn’t initially pass Erika on the State inspection because the brake peddle light switch was inop. :( As he was explaining to me I said, “Wait a minute I think I have a spare.” I looked though my treasure trove of spares that I always carry and — Walla! :shock: He installed the new switch....

Re: 750 crankshaft installation

Have you visited MyUral.com yet? http://myural.com/installing_crankshaft.htm Haven't we determined that the procedure on MyUral is based on the 650 motor which captures the bearing differently, and therefore dangerously incorrect? https://www.sovietsteeds.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=56392 That's...

Reservations for Blue-Gray Rally, 4-7 June

The BGR is still a go. The BGR is a month later then the CRAP was scheduled but, obviously, things will need to change in the USA before late April/early May for this to be executed. Lake Anna is selected for the BGR campground. Information on pricing and making reservations can be found at www.dcr....

This thing is exciting my G.A.S. Gear Acquisition Syndrome (recovering guitar hoarder!). I have a quad mercury stick setup right now since the other bike is a V-4. Anyone ever played with a TwinMax setting up a multi-cylinder bike?
Yes. Urals are two cylinders :lol:

Re: *TwinMax* -For sale-

If you have a carbureted rig then the Twin Max is an excellent tool and easy to use to quickly balance your carbs. Are there others that provide more precise data? Sure. But, you’re riding a Ural; forgetaboutit.

If you don’t own a Twin Max - BUY IT!

Re: Steering Damper

It’s probably due to one of two things - 1. Too lose; tighten the damper down a touch. 2. The tire is unbalanced (add “Ride On”)

Re: Ural Sidecar Craigslist find

Mounting a spare is probably not an option because of the way the trunk opens The wheel is pretty heavy and it would be an awkward lift. As GregAus said, you’re probably going to have to modify most parts that you want to install. Terry Crawford probably has the most “spare/used” parts to save some ...

Lordsandy, that is one sweet looking, tricked out rig. Welcome.

Add the year model and your location in the signature block so folks can better advise when needed and others may be near you.

Re: Replacing Head Gasket

Usually, no sealants are used. Just clean surfaces on both sides. And, make sure you have the gasket oriented correctly. Oil return hole must be installed correctly to allow oil drain (go back) to sump. :D Good news... the newer gaskets are universal so orientation is no longer a problem. That said...

Re: Final Drive Issues

Agree with S854. The FD is already screwed up - you’re in for a penny in for a pound. Take it apart post some photos and I’m positive the community can walk you through any repairs that are needed
