Re: Really retro

Not sure if this is the right place for this but it seems pertinent. There is a dude named James Veitch who jacks with scammers in a major way and is worth checking out. Another guy stalks and out scams the scammers. What amazed me was not the general asshattery and all, it was the fact that this g...

Re: Ural? Dnepr? CJ750? on the cover of Southern Biker

It appears to be an M-72M with the engine and forks from a K-750M donor bike. I say this because it has an M-72 sidecar light and headlight. It has an IMZ/Ural M-72M fender and fork shrouds. It has wider M-72 (all models except KMZ/Dnepr M-72N) inverted lever bars than the first generation K-750 (an...

Re: New K750M (Or something made to look like one) owner

K-750M's are the most common K-750's and have a longer frame that would accommodate your longer gearbox. Nope. ALL K750 had short frame. Long frame came out with the introduction of the MT9/MT804 in !971-72. Any flathead with a long frame is an MT12 using the frame from the MT10. K750m came out abo...

Re: New K750M (Or something made to look like one) owner

Ditto everything Dneprlover said. It's an early 1958 - 1962-ish short frame K-750 (or maybe a military K-750B I think it was called?) with the wrong front forks, engine, gearbox, non-original tank, etc. K-750M's are the most common K-750's and have a longer frame that would accommodate your longer g...

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: 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...
