Re: Wow! An Electric Ural prototype!!!

They could hang four more batteries on the tub like some owners do with fuel and ammo cans.

Re: Aluma 6310

A 7710 Aluma can haul two Urals if you get creative.

Re: Likely a dumb question but I'm incapable of feeling shame

You can remove the speedometer from the bike. Then carefully pry the tabs holding the bezel on. After that I believe there is one or two screws that hold the speedometer in the housing, remove those. Next paint the inside of the housing white or silver, or line with foil shiny side to the inside. La...

Re: Frame swap

Yes the motor and leading link front end will be a direct bolt up. You will need a different drive shaft though if you use the Retro swing arm.

Re: Extended Ural Air video and launch date

Just another stupid 2WD LE. I do not want, need or will ever have a 2WD. I learned my lessons back in 1977 with the Toyota FJ40 that I had. Extra drive wheel just get you in trouble. And cost more to buy and maintain.

Re: CT Rear Tire Crossover

You may run into interference with the drive shaft. If a tire is sized as a metric like 100/90-18 it is not the same aspect ratio as a 4.00-18.

Re: What about a club?

Years ago there was a club called NARMA (North American Russian Motorcycle Association). It was started by Sheldon Abbot who was a very early Ural owner. The dues were $25/yr. When you first joined you got a patch or two and a sticker. After that nothing. For a couple of years he put on a rally each...

Re: What about a club?

Lee Pape or Mr. Cob probably remember better than I. I think that the person running it was from Colorado. I entered my information when I lived in Florida (2012-2016) but when I moved and tried to update it, I had lost the info. Yes it was Dan K. from CO that did the Red Riders several times. Even...

Another thing I overlooked is the graphic. It contains four breaks in the circle that is indicative of a rotating propeller. I have seen it with other aviation logos.
They are going to use a complete BMW drive train.

Re: Spare Tire vs Tire Sealant

Slime will not work if the valve stem rips out of the tube. I have had many flats on my Urals over the last 17 years and in every case the slime would of just oozed out and made a huge mess.

Re: Heading out on a Ural rescue mission.

Crap, looks like the new bike bit it. 2015? Lower end bearings? If so, call Jason at IMWA...that is all I will say about that... Good job on the save, but Lee is one of the oldest timer Ural riders in the US. When he started, that was called how one ended most trips! :foilhead: If the other bike is...
