Re: What's the story with the Bobber LE?

Howdy All, As one who actually HAD an original 870cc factory experimental engine, belt drive alternator and MANY other things I can tell you for a fact, don't go down this road unless you are willing to give up the longevity the 750cc engine has along with how gentle it is on the rest of the drive t...

Re: Russian homemade Dnepr 2-into-1 high exhaust on right of sidecar

Cool pix Mr. Cob. I remember seeing them a long time ago. Certainly a no-go for mounting "under" the hack like the Russian fellow but he'll find out sooner to later. Props for trying anyway. I suppose if you did design the Predator to carry a monkey rather than the extra fuel you might have been cr...

Re: Russian homemade Dnepr 2-into-1 high exhaust on right of sidecar

Howdy All, A photo is worth a 10,000 words or so I have been told. These photos were taken during the initial build of the "Predator", this system works extremely well but is not suited for a rig that will carry a passenger in the sidecar on a regular basis. https://photos.smugmug.com/photos/i-mNDxJ...

Re: 825cc M2Boxer EFI first ride

Howdy All,

I ran dual plug heads on all my Shovelheads, it worked exceptionally well on the turbo-ed Shovel I ran from 1982 until 1994 when I finally got smart a got into sport bikes to go fast.

Re: 825cc M2Boxer EFI first ride

Howdy All,

After I did the dual spark plug modification to my heads and retarded the timing the detonation problem was solved on my 825cc engine.

Re: New MPG Figures (very preliminary)

Howdy All, I realize to some folks fuel mileage is a major concern, I guess it depends on what your priorities are. My main priority when using ANY toy, and to me the Ural is a toy, is how MUCH FUN I am having whilst burning the fuel. On my carbed Ural's I used to get anywhere from 22-25mpg on a reg...

Re: 2008 Gear Up, $5,500 WA State, SOLD

Sad to say but I am seriously thinking of selling the Predator I'll have to give it some thought, come up a price and see what happens. Its very hard to put a price on such a rig What do you make of this, then? https://www.sovietsteeds.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=52449 Or this: https://advrider....

Re: 2008 Gear Up, $5,500 WA State, SOLD

Howdy stagewex, The only sidecar rig now in my stable is the Predator. Sad to say but I am seriously thinking of selling the Predator, as I don't have anyone to ride with anymore who enjoys the hard some would say stupid off road riding it was built for. This type of riding has a lot of risk involve...

Re: 2008 Gear Up, $5,500 WA State

Howdy All, A couple of days ago a fellow from seattle came out to look at the 2008, he liked it. I told him I would get it running and cleaned up so he said he would come again to see it when I had done the work. So this morning I dug the 2008 out from under all the crap that it has been sitting und...
