Re: No spark. Type IV ignition

There's a couple things that can go wrong. 1. Either the primary or secondary windings can go open, or 2. The primary or secondary winding shorts to itself. In automotive applications, primary to secondary is probably around 1:100, so for instance, in the event that that coating rubs off the wire at...

Re: K68 & K65

The float valve O-rings on my K-68's went about six months apart from each other. I replaced both of them with the O-rings in a Bic lighter. They have lasted longer than the originals...

Re: Is a Ural M70 Steering Damper Really That Necessary?

I do actually like the new Ural hydraulic damper, but I'm wanting to put custom triple trees w/ Yamaha forks, a 19" wheel (stock is 18"), and a high dirtbike fender on a 2014 M70, rendering the factory damper attachment point useless. Can I safely learn to ride without the unit, or do I really need...

Re: Is a Ural M70 Steering Damper Really That Necessary?

You could just swap the upper and lower triple-tree clamps and use the older friction damper that was used for the first 72 years...

Re: Fell on a K750 now what year

Thanks guys...I ran it through the DMV vin check and its out of the system or doesn't exist. That's a good thing because a lot of bikes I looked at buying had huge fees due and unpaid. Last year I bought a 1958 Travel trailer with no paperwork. Told dmv it was a gift and relative was no longer aliv...

Re: 1966 Ural Solo?

Not an M-66. An M-66 has a nicely arched frame at the upper part of the rear shock. Every Ural since the M-67 (except the Wolf/Retro) has a straight upper frame at this point. In fact, the M-66's immediate predecessor, the M-63 (same bike as the M-66 but without the buttugly gas tank) is debatably t...

Re: 1966 Ural Solo?

Mid-1990's Solo, hence the upswept pipes. Should have a reverse lockout, different final drive ratio, and 18" wheels, too, if I remember correctly...

Re: Klunking out at intersections and stops....

I'd be willing to bet you're only running on one cylinder.
Maybe fuel starvation?

Re: New to both Ural/Dnepr AND MCs

Yep. I had to make up the website for myself because I have a tendency to forget stuff and I have to break it down to the simplest level because I'm not real smart, either! And yes, the Dnepr 650cc is supposed to be superior in design to the Ural 650cc, but not necessarily superior in implementatio...
