Re: 1970 IZH

Most of all, you won't see them everyday running. The poor 350 2 stroker engine has to pull such a lot of weight that in Costa Rica the one I got to know in 2.600 needed 2 or 3 clutch repairs....good thing about it, You can supply your own clutch material....the cork of a few bottles of wine.

Re: "Universal" Ural transmission?

Lew, you got me interested now too, where is the supposed diference.
I remember Tony (the old mechanic) at Racewayservices, Salem OR, that his Wolf did have in stead of the donut a second u-joint at the transmission output.
And as far I think to remember that his final drive had a longer reduction.

Re: Clutch issue

Well 2 years ago we pulled a resting/rusting Ural out of a porch and same story. I made it the hard way and the following owner did regret it. She had to change the clutch, because the first owner had badtreated the clutch, (not only the rig, but his own skull and shoulder too. 3,5kg Titanium implan...

Re: What did you do to your Ural today?

I am up to 3 knobby tires for the first time after 41.300km at least on muddy grass the front wheel does not slide away. Tomorrow we will see how they behave on wet road and mud. That tire from s/c I repaired the neumatic might have been one that was original still. No protector band over the spokes...

Re: China Ural and other hacks. . .

Well, in Costa Rica its 35 to 50% import tax on Ural and 100% on carburator spares (the 2018 are sold for 25.000+ $) I paid in 2013 6.500$ tax on my already used Patrol. 29 years ago it was 100% on any bike above 200ccm. The cylinder protector of the Ural is laughable....ridiculous. That may confirm...
