Re: New 2018 Ural Gear Up Owner (Engine Heat Question)

I’ve ridden every year in Yorktown’s 4th of July parade. It’s about a 40 min event. Temps are generally in the low 90s.

Rode a 2019 - impression

The other day I had the opportunity to ride Karl’s 2019 Ural. When I returned from a short ride here’s how the conversation went. Tomcatfixer: “So, did you notice any difference?” Me: “Nope.” Tomcatfixer: “You didn’t think there was any difference?!” Me: “There was no difference because I was riding...

Ok, not reading the question correctly the first time, here’s my experience Approximates: 1. Front tire - 15,000kms 2. Drive/rear tire - 7,000kms 3.
