Re: What did you do ON your Ural today?

Despite COVID-19, I was still able to ride over 10,000 km in a year. :) Pretty happy with that. :boogie:

Re: Best windshield Fairing or Plexistar 2?

I have no idea which one I have, got it used. Went with the 2 because the 3 has extended leg guards, which aren't needed and may interfere with the Ural leg guards. Heindl lists the 2 and 3 on their website, might be worth giving them a call about the specifics. I'm thinking the 3. If the longer le...

Re: Best windshield Fairing or Plexistar 2?

The PlexiStar 2 is an excellent windscreen. Two mods were needed: - Provide necessary wind deflection off the helmet. The PlexiStar was not high enough to keep wind from buffeting the helmet. I’m 5’9”. I added a Laminar Lip extension that worked perfectly. When ordering, the Honda Gullwing has the s...

Re: 1390 miles through PA and NY

Nice write up. Had a Ural rally in Gettysburg last year. Been there numerous times, but on a Ural it’s really different because you see more than in a car.

Re: I let my Ural sit. Where to start sorting it out?

errr... I should have said, if you were NOT able to move the rig (not touching the clutch) then you’re in gear. Hope you get things sorted. They are a pretty simple rig to work on.

Re: I let my Ural sit. Where to start sorting it out?

The rig not moving is probably because your clutch plates are stuck together. There are posts on how to get them to release without having to remove the clutch. When you turned over the engine with the kick starter had you pulled the clutch? If so, try again without the touching the clutch. If the r...

Re: Front Sidecar Turnbuckle Eye-Bolt Sheered

Discussing stuff like this ferrets out details that make everyone a bit better informed. Your theory is not quite right. The head of the eyebolt should be tight against the lug or as Windmill has pointed out, a bushing and then the lug. The shoulder of the eyebolt is what sees the majority of the b...

Re: Front Sidecar Turnbuckle Eye-Bolt Sheered

Okay, thanks. So Lokiboy's was actually loose without the washers. Loki, you mentioned sidecover clearance prevented the head of the bolt from butting against the frame lug. Was that bolt actually loose when you got your rig? Nothing was ever loose. When the nut was tightened, the bolt head (mount)...

Snakeoil, You’re like a little badger. I can’t believe you made me take off my seat. :lol:

Anyway hopefully these photos will clarify what I was saying.
