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...

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...

LED lights and 4-way blinkers

Well, this has been done quite a few times, but I can't seem to find the specific flasher relay that other folks are using on their Urals for LED blinker lights. Here's what I have now: https://i.pinimg.com/originals/e7/4f/7d/e74f7d61666d110980bb34014385ac1b.jpg https://i.pinimg.com/originals/7b/36/...

Re: Ural projects for 2018

Hmm... The wheels be turning in my head about how I might proceed with the LED tail light conversion.

Re: cylinder head temp using a tto brand CHT.

Most folks get a higher reading from the Left. Seems that the sidecar has a wind funneling effect that pushes more air past the Right jug. I have a box on the engine side of the sidecar nose so I get a higher temp on the Right.

Re: Tonneau for sale

I'm curious what the leather patches are for? Slots for windshield bracket?
Any interest in building one in a different color?

Re: cylinder head temp using a tto brand CHT.

I've been told that CHTs connected to the spark plug run hotter than the actual head temp. Not sure by how much or if it makes a difference. My engine runs about the same temps as others here have reported. :)
