In that 3rd to last picture what were Troyka & George trying figure out... who owed what for the check? :) Definitely Good Karma for you coming. It was all on Troykaboy.

Heading out on a Ural rescue mission.

I'm getting ready to leave in a few hours to drive from Perry, IA to Rock Springs, WY to rescue a fellow Foilhead whose bike broke down. Troykaboy and Outrider were in the middle of their 30 day tours of the west. Yesterday Troykaboy's bike started to make bad noises from the engine/tranny area. The...

Re: Is 2WD an absolute must for midwestern winters?

I live in Iowa and have driven a Tourist (2) for 17 years. My current bike is a 2007 Tourist and I feel that a 2WD is a waste of money except for bragging rights or the wow factor. With 2WD you have more maintenance to do and more expense to repair things when they do break. I can do 90% plus of the...

Re: iKon Suspension for Urals

Since Roger has not responded, I suspect he is up to his elbows in events and just taking care of business. Billy G has the test shocks and is still evaluating them. We've discovered a new fit-up issue, which is one of the reasons for testing these on multiple bikes and with different riders. I'm s...

I want one, so I did some digging and found this: https://www.cafepress.com/mf/2236642/sticky-evil_sticker I'm going to order some :) Does anyone know who made it to begin with? This needs to be a shirt! It was a shirt at one time. It was a full front design. I have one buried someplace in my Ural ...

Re: Engine rev/transmission lockup

I bet if you cycle the reverse shifter back to forward position your transmission will fix itself. As far as you engine reving I don't know if the EFI rigs still use a throttle splitter or not. But my guess would be one of your throttle cables, the black outer sheath, slipped out of the splitter.

Re: Ural sticker

That sticker is from about 2003 or 2004. I have the t-shirt. Some one in the NorWet Pod had them made up. I don't remember if they were from Café Press or where.

Re: Broke the fuel cross-over connector. Now what?

Going over the frame defeats the purpose of the cross over tube. Does it? I'm not convinced it does - the highest point on my crossover pipe over the frame rail is probably only 10-15mm above the lowest point in the tank, so I'm already very low on fuel at that point. Unbolting and lifting the tank...
