Re: Hello from a new IMZ M61 owner.

And if you ever need front brake parts, that's A Dnepr TLS set up. Probably off an MT10 but they are all the same. Ural shoes won't fit.

Re: My Dnepr MT-11 Story

What Clause said about the alternator + spot on. Easiest way to check play is to remove end cover and measure on the rotor fan. a barely perceptible click when it's rocked is the roadside way of doing it. once set, put a mark on the clamping face so you can remove/replace the alternator without goin...

Re: My Dnepr MT-11 Story

You will struggle fitting those Ebay mirrors to your Dnepr. better to buy some cheap long reach ones and new perches. the handlebars are 25mm diameter so if you buy 1" perches, you will have to shim them.

Re: My Dnepr MT-11 Story

Not a big fan of altering the instrument console too much and hate side mounted keys. I always have top mounted ones which really make the kill switch redundant so I repurpose them through a relay to run auxiliaries or spotlights.Veglia rev counter from a 1970s-1980s Moto guzzi twin fits nice if the...

Re: My Dnepr MT-11 Story

Trying to help has actually been a pleasure to me. to find a new poster that knows what they are doing and is willing to take advice makes a refreshing change to some of the morons who are new to the bikes but think they are the worlds best mechanics. I know my style is sometimes thought of as patro...

Re: My Dnepr MT-11 Story

I had a vague idea the valves were not quite correct and that's why I asked you to check in an earlier post. they now sound as if they are set pretty close to correct. Sorry about getting the TDC marking wrong but glad your flywheel is clearly marked. Makes life so much easier. Starting procedure fr...

Re: Problem Deleting a Post

You could report your own post and in the reason for the report, say that you messed up and want it gone. A moderator would then take care of it for you. If you can’t delete it, it’s easy to just go back and EDIT, e.g. erase the text. It would be much easier reinstating the system to what it was a ...

Re: My Dnepr MT-11 Story

Will do on the alternator. The idiot light is on, so I'll just have to see how healthy it is. The last thing I timed with a light was a 1969 Mustang, and that was in the late '80s. All I've seen on the Dnepr is one mark on the flywheel. What tells you 34-35°??? Less than fully informed minds want t...

I take it you don't live anywhere it rains often? Mine fill with water very rapidly when it rains and the water sloshes down the tank into my trouser crutch when I set off. Now ride with the box empty apart from a plastic egg cup for bailing

Re: Sign that Urals are getting better

It might be more precise to say KMZ MV-series was the motorcycle for the military. "Dnepr" was always the civilian brand. Pedant :lol: but quite correct until the 650cc models came along. My MB/MV manuals all refer to them as Dnepr And, As I understand it, Passing a driving test in Soviet times mea...

Hand change lever, often referred to as a 'Neutral finder' Same as all Ural models up to the M8-103 models. Dnepr's had reverse 15 years before Ural did. Dnepr introduced the MT804 reverse gearbox in 1972 on the MT9
