Re: Which one would you buy?

Good for you. I have to say reading your thread here I wondered how a 2017 EPA cert. rig needed up in Nevada. When you say it was the Ural cert bike did you mean done by corporate in Washington? If so that is why the guys were saying "if it was done right" and if Sergey and/or someone else in that t...

Re: Cylinder Flooding

The first time I cleaned my carbs I failed to clean and service the entire system. So when I went to "PRI" (I still use the vacuum petcock) it allowed the fine debris that was giving me trouble in the first place to dirty-up the clean carbs once again, flooding the float bowl. What a waste of time b...

Re: Ural riders Tampa FL?

If you can get your friend to weld up a mount for that Paramotor that will allow it to be used as a back-up for the rig then...

HaHa, Welcome to you. You got a great year for a Ural.

Re: It's home!

Wow, that looks great. Nice seat.
Yeah, lose that gargantuan vetter-looking windshield altogether. Doesn't belong on a rig that looks like that.

Re: Where to find tires

It's funny you say that about the Duro's because I've been running K37's for so many years... those Duro's look like street tires to me.
Actually I do like them and if I keep my rig they (Duro's) will be the way I'll be going.

Re: It's home!

Sounds great and your enthusiasm connects with all of us.
Ride Safe, Happy and Healthy.


PS: lose the windshield altogether. If you really need one on a fast-tractor like a Ural... get in your car :)

So nice Chuck. And makes it even more mystifying as in "what's under that cover".

Re: Adjusting Alternator Gear lash

It's dead easy : you install the alternator and lightly snug up the nuts, remove the timing chest cover and by hand feel the play between the small alternator drive gear and the large cam gear ~ you're looking for about .004" . Use the kick starter to rotate the engine a little bit whilst watching ...

Jay, it reminds me of your "amusement ride" possible sidecar. Just needs the little MG on the front.

Re: Alternator Removal, 2020 Gear Up

I "had" my Quick-Disconnect right in the center of the crossover. I don't use one anymore. I have a small electric gas pump used for the mowers & snow blower. After having the tiny "O" Ring gaskets in both the nice plastic disconnect fail or the stainless BMW type (also the gasket) I just drop-pump ...

Re: Alternator Lash

DO NOT trust that scribe mark ! . You *MUST* test for lash at any different mesh points , remember the cam gear expands as it warms up and reaches operating temperature . I never had a breaking / shaft failure on my Urals because I made damn sure there was always at least .004" lash . Thanks for th...
