Re: iKon Suspension for Urals

I look at it like anything else where the technology differs. Having 7 pre-load positions may be important to some. It's never been a feature I looked for on any shock. As long as it has preload adjustability, I'm happy. I think the range of preload adjustability is probably more important than the ...

Chad, those orange valve covers put a smile on my face ever time I see them. I'd love to see your Easter outfit. :wink:

Re: iKon Suspension for Urals

If I am tracking right, the Ikon for the Ural will be the fixed rebound Cossack and no Dial a Ride Type planned (good with that but trying to get the picture in mind)
Correct.

Re: iKon Suspension for Urals

The Ural shocks are based upon the iKon Basix, which are not externally adjustable. But if I remember correctly, they are internally adjustable. If I am correct about that, then I would think your damping requirements (riding style, terrain and such) could be set. Keep in mind that I'm just thinking...

Re: Is dealer correct about sidecar setup?

My limited experience has shown that with a load in the hack, it tends to pull a bit to the right. To the point made by others, it is not overwhelming, but it does make for more work while riding. Normally, adjusting lean-out will compensate for this. If you think about it, with a load in the hack, ...

Re: Limited Number of Clicks Per Visit

I ran into weird problems with various internet sites when my old computer was still working and ran Win7. The IE browser was no longer supported by sites when they did updates and many functions would not work with my browser. No messages. Things simply would not work or on some sites, certain feat...

Re: iKon Suspension for Urals

Closest I can give you are my comments about the potholes and road heaves I encountered a few weeks ago with the wife in the hack. That said, what I can offer up is if your old shocks are dampened by oil passing thru fixed passages, then any shock that uses a cartridge type design with relief valves...

Yeah. That bike is not in Delmar. I live right down the road. Wrong area code, too.

Light bulb anomaly

I’m sharing this with everyone I know who is a motor head. This happened on a bike, but it could happen on any vehicle. On my BMW R100/7, the left directional was not working when I put the battery in a few weeks ago. I cleaned all the bulb terminals and it worked again. Then out on a ride, my buddy...
