Re: my sidecar wheel is mocking me

Had the exact same problem. Liberal smacking with a rubber mallet eventually loosened the bugger.

Just hit it as hard as you think is reasonable, then hit it with 25% more force. I found hitting around the hub worked best.

Re: 3 way intercom system

I too have the SENA SMH10 and can vouch for them being a fantastic unit. They are quite expensive so it wasn't a purchase that I entered into lightly, but I'm so glad that I got them. Audio is clear, operation is simple and I after riding in the rain for 5 hours straight I can verify that they're wa...

Re: Sidecar wheel won't come off

As tempting as riding around as the wheel came loose was I opted for continued use of the hammer. The spark plug remover tool fits nicely over the axel which let me get a few good knocks on the bearing. Then some very solid hits from the inside finally dislodged the bugger. As always thanks for your...

Sidecar wheel won't come off

Hi everyone, Well first of all I feel like a complete Idiot posting this but after a few hours huffing and puffing I'm convinced something is wrong. I'm trying to remove the sidecar wheel so I can replace the tyre. The castle nut, dust cover and washer come off the axel with no trouble, the wheel on...

Kangaroo Island Russian Sidecar Tour Yippee

What a motley looking crew. Shame I couldn't make it this time around. I think 2013 is looking good.

Great work on the organisation and the video.

ATTN: I.M.Z. legal staff -

I get ads for urinary tract infection treatments in Google after spending too much time typing Ural into search engines.

Maybe Aussie Urals should have 'doesn't assist with burning sensations' printed on the tank to avoid any confusion and potential legal action :)

Re: Neutral Light

Thanks Norm. The plastic backing nut was broken when I got the bike and I suspect this makes the whole setup a little unstable. Locktight would no doubt minimise the effect but probably not solve the whole issue. I'll try to remember to pick up a replacement nut in Kentucky :) Counting down the days...

Re: Neutral Light

There are a couple of posts on here about adjusting the neutral light, search will turn them up for you. I know that you don't want to turn the screw in too far as there is a dooba-wacky that can fall into the transmission if you go to far. I have adjusted mine a few times and it works for a while b...

Re: Advice please - flexible coupling replacement

HI Swordsman, Sorry I missed your post I just got back from a ride. Glad to hear it all worked out for you. I had already removed the bottom shock bolts and then as cdscoot mentioned I just had to bend out the metal clamp thing that folds over the bolt and loosen the bolt. I didn't even need to get ...

Re: Attention Guests...

Can I suggest a paypal donate button be added to the footer of the site. I know ... I know ... not everyone uses PayPal but for those of us that do it's a simple way to drop a few coins in the pond from time to time.

What did you do to your Ural today?

I somehow managed to put it into prime and fill everything with fuel. Doh!
