Re: Bob and Van's Big 2019 Adventure

just a tip: when open and cleaned put dielectric varnish on your board, put some silca gel bag into sealed electronics and seal with good stuff like Hymolar or Loctite 515. Big OR: Or as done at Endress&Hauser Electronics. Mount a Goretex membrane breather. (my proposal from March/May? 2003 got into...

Re: Do you Push or Pull

In the beginning I didn't like much the odd curve of the original handle bar. Then I pulled it a bit further back to ease the twist on the wrists and learned to like the original bar. Once upon the time I made up photos of my strange way to grip over the closser handle bar. Perhaps I find them. Defi...

Re: Do you Push or Pull

or finally get to open road and pull the throttle albeight uphill.Orotina-Atenas. since they opened the toll road 27 that road "Montes del Aguacate" has become a feast for monkeys like me. Only one bus needed to be overtaken in a potentially troublesome action. Without aircooler fan the oiltemp on t...

Re: Added Ural Hisotry

Each time we jump on our bike and give it a spin or pucker on it in our shop/garage , we add essential parts to Ural history. Its a living thing, that wants to be used hopefully on a daily base. Best of it: "It makes family!" :moto: :kumbaya: https://www.wikiloc.com/enduro-trails/valle-del-general-d...

Re: Twin discs up front?

I have to check what say bottle and brake tank, I am sure they coincidate. Me too for synthetic liquids I am a burnt child, but on brake fluid in tropic climate I am a BIG fan of synthetic fluid...once you grabbed into a over boiled brake you know about what I speek. had it perhaps 4-5 times and not...

Re: Rear End/Differential Failures (moved to Wrenches)

3. broken FD: From the main road to that spot it is about 6-7km of awful stony gravel road and steep slopes. Or you rev and go like a jockey, or you turn around right away. It was getting dark and I wanted to check if it was possible to make that road from up down. (Still 6 bad climbs in it and it n...

Re: Rear End/Differential Failures (moved to Wrenches)

At less then 5000km 2WD on solid ground seems to have pulled off the Seeger ring that keeps the power take off shaft in place. At 34.000km worn attack shaft bearing made that the shaft pulled out and broke one tooth of the crown. At 42.386km in the evening of 5th to 6th January the 41st "mule nut", ...

Re: Clutch alignment tool

I used on the 750 the final drive bar for to lign up the friction plates. To eyeball is enough, as they allign perfectly once pulling the clutch when engine runs.

Re: Twin discs up front?

Possible without doubt. Guatemala should be much less hilly then Costa Rica. I still run drum brakes in the back and the single disc front brake I am able to block in any situation. I would worry more about the other 2 brakes to fade. (by the way I recommend you to change to synthetic brake liquid.)...

Re: CRACKED RIMS - ALL 4 WHEELS

a tip for those who use the opportunity to change bearings right away too: Use assembley paste = Anti seize paste for to mount the bearings. That way you get rid of excentric brake drums in most cases. Reason: the bearing nests are round and centered, but SO SLOPPY, if you do not use the paste to ta...
