I assume that you are calling it the "Porker Run" has to do with the fact that I could afford to lose a couple pounds?

Thanks a lot!!

Re: Under Coating On Ural, Is It Necessary

I undercoated mine with a rubber spray from Walmart. It’s held up for 8 years with just a few tiny rust spots. I also sealed all the surfaces on the hack where metal part meet and where water could collect with a clear, paintable silicon caulk. Oh, the rubber mats, while looking nice can/will trap w...

Re: Embarrassing update: cylinder hiss

Update: Thanks for all the really good suggestions. I even called ski at Tri Quest and he was leaning towards a piston ring, from when I installed new ones a few months ago, was caught in the piston channel and not decompressing, thus allowing blowback. As it turns out, when I did a major service an...

Re: New GPR 2-into-1 right exit high mount stainless exhaust

Daisy Cutter, I like the Raceway. Granted, the muffler tubing is difficult (read as impossible) to keep clean looking, but other then that... I’m glad I bought a used one, however.

Understood about the M70/Retro, but the data is in line with a non 2WD with 10 lb difference.

I can see that being a carry over but if so then previous data is ?????
Humm... it’s like how the pyramids were built. Somethings we’ll never know and in the long run doesn’t make a difference.

Re: Super High Oil Consumption; Next Step?

If you have parts questions, you can call Ski at Tri-quest out in California, or Terry at Crawford up in Michigan. They are both extremely knowledgeable and will walk you through all the parts you need to order

Re: Rt cylinder hiss

I’m not going to over worry about this. It’s annoying, but otherwise everything seems ok. Can’t figure out where a hiss would come from with the spark plugs removed since is nothing to build pressure against. Propwash, I thought about that and squirted 3-1 oil around the tube connections thinking th...
