Re: Fixing up the "mistake"

The battery disconnect is standard OEM for the area.

The old wiring harness is also standard. It started out with colored wires but they fade after a short time.

Re: Autozone

I have found over the years if there is a female working at the counter of the auto parts store, she will be your best bet for getting what you need. They seem to work harder to show up the keyboard kids. Also I used to judge the quality of the place by the size and number of parts book racks they h...

Re: Ural Workhorse Hercules

At some point the engine was swapped out for a newer 750, with the bolt on exhaust headers. I'm surprised that was not listed so they could add another $10,000 to the price. How do you know the engine has been swapped please? It now has a 750 cc Ural engine in it. The year of it's manufacture is st...

Re: oil filter replacement

I hears that it is the Grand-Daughter of the Pin Stripe Lady that is installing the oil filters. If you don't know who the Pin Stripe Lady was you are not old school Ural.

She was the lady in a the CMSI video that was hand pin striping the sidecars back day.

Re: slick fifty

When CMSI was the importer of Urals into the North America they recommended that what we referred to as Ural Snot was used in the engine, transmission and finial drive every oil change. Ural Snot is also known as Hyper Lube. The debate on it was like any good oil thread. https://www.hyperlube.com/ T...

Re: Toilet paper at hardware store - Ural to the rescue

Think they switched from hoarding TP to hoarding meat. Last time I went to stores they had already been devastated with very little left. :o A lot of the meat packing plants were shutting down until the President ordered them to stay open the other day. The one Tyson plant in Waterloo, IA supplies ...

Re: Toilet paper at hardware store - Ural to the rescue

I went to one of the area Walmart stores on Tuesday morning. The employees there were stocking toilet paper by the pallets full. The toilet paper isle was blocked off but from what I could see there had to be enough toilet paper cases stacked on pallets to stock the store to pre-hoarding levels and ...

Re: Creative alarm system for a motorcycle or such

I always enjoy creativity and such when viewing what others have done. This particular mod could be further developed, but it is an interesting concept.
