New Carburetor Forum

I've been searching the internet for a couple of years now for a forum dedicated to carburetors, with no real success. I finally decided to make my own: http://carburetors.freeforums.net/ Now, I don't want to pull anyone away from this forum or other forums, but if you happen to be interested, maybe...

Cheap reverse lever and light.

Hi folks, I was asked about how I did my reverse lever and light setup. I lost the pictures for a while, and the original writeup was corrupted thanks to photobucket. So here is an update on how I done it. Now, this is an M70, so you're bike may not work out exactly like mine did, but this is certai...

Re: Wow! An Electric Ural prototype!!!

Someone mentioned that the foot space looked cramped. Was that a joke or have you not ridden a ural with a boxer engine? LOL! I had no issues with that. In fact, maybe they should add some cooling jugs on the sides to preserve the boxer history. That was me. I said, " I wonder how hot that electric...

Re: 2019 changes announced

I got one of the first 2014 M70 made. I expected teething problems and had a few but I love the bike and Ural fixed all my problems that weren't self inflicted. If I were ready to turn loose of my M70, I wouldn't be afraid of being a first adopter again. These bikes are such low production, we are ...

Re: Wow! An Electric Ural prototype!!!

I got to test ride at the open house on Saturday too. The acceleration is amazing! It felt very natural to ride now that I'm accustomed to my M70. I thought I'd constantly be reaching for the clutch, but it felt like the "engine" never got high enough in RPMs to need shifting. Does that make sense? ...

Re: WA/OR Rally 2019

Merrill Lake sounds nice. I was kind of thinking further South though. A 4th option might be Marryhill state park. Lots of RV sites available. Sounds like Paradise Point is not a great option. What do you all think? Also, how about the proposed dates June 6-10? As we get more details together, I'll ...

Re: WA/OR Rally 2019? If not shall I propose one?

Thanks all, how about this: I'm thinking June 6-10, Thursday through Monday. That would give folks a large-ish window for staying a couple days or more, and should hopefully give us some good weather. Also thinking Paradise Point, or Battle Ground Lake state parks. There's availability, and I think ...

Re: WA/OR Rally 2019? If not shall I propose one?

Ok, sounds like there's interest. Also, I wanted to make sure I wouldn't be competing with SOUR or MBUR. If there are no objections, I'll start looking into dates and locations. I'm thinking somewhere along the boarder, and some time May-September.

Re: wiring a Garmin gps HELP!!!

I did use some dielectric grease, everything works fine and fits nicely behind the head light bucket. Worse case if something goes wrong its just the city light. Rob, there are several fuse blocks but thats way above my electrical skill level. If this gives me trouble down the road Ill look at goin...

Re: 2014 Alternator Question

Thanks folks! I'm looking at a "smart" isolator from Amazon: https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B004QCDE9M/?coliid=IL7IHHWD11UIA&colid=1E6B1UUZBLNWO&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it It supposedly blocks power to the second battery until the starter battery is fully charged. I'm also planning to have some kind of...

2014 Alternator Question

Anyone know how much of a load is safe to put on the 2014 Alternator, running accessories?

I'm thinking of getting an isolator to charge a trailer battery while I ride, but I don't want to overtax the Ural's electrical system.

Re: Ural projects for 2018

I was out playing with the electrics on the Ural to day, and while I was at it, I swapped out my old quick connect cable with a new one from Noco. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/ff/31/bd/ff31bd322891e6dd846a40b5f93df6da.jpg It's a larger gauge than the old one, plus if you pull of the adapter, it co...
