Re: '12 with 778km total on the bike....Ride home, now leaking from FD and elsewhere?

I had a 2012 and it threw oil out of the final drive all the time. It may have to do with the gears throwing oil directly at the dip stick if I remember correctly. I played with the idea of extending the vent with a length of clear tubing so it would drain back in but ended up trading it for a '14. ...

Anybody remember 6 years ago when the entry level Ural T was only $9,999? These toys are getting expensive.

Re: $7k 2012 vs $12k 2015

I've owned a 2012 and a 2014 and the 2012 was the best of many Urals I have owned. Of course the EFI bike was 5 mph faster in every gear, got better gas mileage and could actually stop when needed, but the carbed bike was the best version of the older models. If you're looking to ride a lot of highw...

A sidecar tire should last almost forever. Check your alignment.

Re: Absolute Necessities to have with you at all times

Toilet paper... :wink: I was waiting for someone to mention toilet paper. :-) I always carry one in the sidecar trunk or dirt bike backpack since my desperate moment in middle of woods where only options were stinging nettle, spruce branch and pine branch. So witch one was it? Happy trails, Jaybird...

Re: Ural high-mount exhaust and California emissions

You could all move to a Free State with good laws. Read up on DEMOGRAPHICS to help you decide. I'm enjoying being among sensible Mountain People. This comment is less than helpful. I've bought and sold a few bikes in Monterey and Santa Clara counties and I have never been inspected except when the ...

Re: Fouled plug and weak under load

We cleaned the air box and filter and ran the crankcase vent tube into a plastic bottle. 80km later and the bike still runs well and there's a half a teaspoon of oil in the bottle. Found another use for a spare spark plug :lol: http://imgur.com/V5tFsQD.jpg And the plastic bottle after 80km http://im...

It has new spark plug and wire on the offending side.
