Re: Side valve vs 650

The side valve has only about 25 horsepower compared to the whooping 32 horsepower of the OHV.

Re: Jumping Right In

I’m guessing that you must be from Texas. Are you thinking of having a bike shipped to you or going to get it yourself? A fly and ride is not a good option for a lot of the country right now unless you are willing to deal with the cold and possible snow.

Re: Ural changes/upgrade progression chart

Those are only changes since IMWA has been the importer. How far back do you want to go? 1993 when CMSI started to import them or 1943 when they first went into production?

Re: From Russia With Love Limited Edition

$19,999 plus freight and dealer prep! I remember when a person could afford to buy a Ural with out taking out a second mortgage.

Re: Throttle lock available?

Living in Iowa is probably a useful place to use one. You must of never been to Iowa. If you try riding a bicycle across you will soon find out it is not flat. Plus the wind blows all of the time. Iowa is flatter where the glaciers smoothed it down some but is still not flat. http://topocreator.com...

Re: Throttle lock available?

Many types have been used over the years. Everything from an o-ring that applies friction between the throttle and the brake/mirror mount.

Re: You still drive a stick?

When I used to work and commute daily I likes to have a stick. Living in Iowa we do get snow during the winter. With a stick it let me choose the gear that felt best to me for the conditions at the time. The best car that I ever owned for winter driving was a Geo Metro. It had a 3 cylinder engine wi...

We will drop one vehicle and the other tra...

Re: Type 3 ignition diagnostic

There should be two marks on your flywheel. The first one that comes into view is the timing mark. The second one is TDC.

Are both of the steel slugs in the timing rotor? Is the D washer worn out and sloppy on the cam shaft?

I've just don't remember any cycle having an idle rpm at 800. Am I missing something here?
I bet you had some of your H-D's idling that slow. We know you like that potato-potato.
