Re: Trick to getting the original oil filter off of 2018 Gear Up?

Last resource, when no wrench wants to do it....whack a strong screw driver right through the filter and it will come off , or it will come off. Check that the guy who put the filter did not hurt the thread. Specially on a new bike I would cut open the filter anyway and analyse the contence for debr...

Re: What does your screen name and avatar mean?

Finn rubbers: In seventees you found a lot of 2 strokers like Zündapp + Herkules with broken cylinderhead and cylinder finns (they were very long) ...probably mostly due to vibration over long time and not due to kissing the ground. My son has a RE .Classic....I own Kawa W800 which is longstroker to...

Re: Need some input - firing on one cylinder

change that oil fast (PS: if you intent to ride all winter/for a few occasions, don't bother) ...i noticed it last week in Germany how much the bikes (RE and W800) were suffering by 34ºF with the usual 20/50oil. But the lack of spark comes from somewhere else. And are you sure its the spark...more p...

Re: NEED "what did your URAL do to you today" thread ?

Trouble with Ethanol gas is emminent and will happen always. After getting stuck in stop and go traffic due to stuck carb needle valves, for sure I love my transparent snow mobile gas hoses. They shrink a lot and become hard in less then a year, but for 30 feet you pay only 1,50Ca$ at Canadian Tyre....

Re: My first granddaughter

I still use to say: "Grandkid, only with mustard." But I am pretty sure the day our kids will bring them, they will get their good night ride in a sidecar, not the old Willies, their parents used to fall asleep in within the first few farm laps. Enjoy them. Or as Medio Tico's mother uses to say: "If...

Re: nose rack

The nose rack is handier then the windscreen. Need some protection from wind? Put the rain gear on the nose rack. And still you have less drag then with the open parachute like s/c wind screen.

Re: Yahama Petcock

Thank you Jeff for the tip....just it comes late for me.
"I w@$#ed the KLR too hot in 2015...it shrunk and lost all the plastic"...converted with a little help of a few more greens into a Kawa W800.
Didn't look back and passed the W800 through worse slopes then the KLR.

Re: Yahama Petcock

but the KLR petcock is a vacuum driven unit again...I blame my former engine troubles partially to vacuum petcock. (since I converted the original Ural petcock to manual use, I got rid of a starving engine at wide open throttle at a hill.) Thumbs up to a straight plain manual petcock and: Adios prob...

Re: "gobium bough the farm"

The day I bought my CR-farm in 1990, I told the old owner:
"From now on I will have a lot of work until they will put me into the grave.
What will be missing is who pays the bills."

Welcome in the club.
Stay in black numbers and most of all: stay healthy.
Good luck and congratulations.
