Re: New Dnepr Acquisition

Took it around the yard today. I need driving lessons! Recommend deserted neighborhood parking lot. Notice lamppost locations before getting carried away. The 20 MPH wobble goes away faster or slower, experiment with steering damper - not to tight - just enough to smooth out steering. Some people l...

Re: Funny or WTF photo thread

Aparantly a CJ doesn't have any brake shoes on the sidecar wheel even though the wheel hub has a brake drum. So does my Dnepr ... that way, like the Ural and CJ, the wheels are all interchangeable. :wink: I always thought my DNEPR really needed a sidecar brake. This was before the internet, & forei...

Re: BEST 15 Ct battery choice

YOU WELL THANK ME IF : you shop on line for a 20ah AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat) battery of correct dimensions. I have used MOTOBATT, ODYSSEY, DEKA, brand AGMs. They are superior in strength, & longevity to lead acid wet batteries, + WILL NEVER PUKE, & RUST YOUR EQUIPMENT. I NEVER USE ANYTHING ELSE ON MY...

Re: Anyone remove dshaft for summer?

The easiest way to get better mileage would be to drive an economy CAR - but then you couldn't be mocked by motorists, bake & sweat, or get soaked in the rain, or stung by bees.

INCORRECT, The Drawing was made by captain cooks geographer, depicting KANGAROOs pummeling one of the explorers. I was once pummeled by a Kangaroo, who didn't need a club to get the best of me.

Re: Funny or WTF photo thread

That last one would break the building regs in the UK, even a single door separating lavvy and a kitchen is not enough I don't think. I was horrified to read that poop molecules (or cuties) could contaminate an exposed toothbrush, openly stored in the bathroom. There is no data, but a high likeliho...

Can't get killed with it - unless hit by it, which looks pretty likely.

Re: Newbie: should I be using the parking brake?

I find my 02 & earlier parking brakes I've owned, to be a little awkward to use. necessary foot pressure on the brake pedal - requires sitting on bike - but not having long monkey arms, I have trouble reaching the lever. If I ever get around to it, I'd like a tank side mounted Reverse, & Parking Bra...

Re: Lap robe: popular?

When I was young & enthusiastic, I did ride regularly in foul weather. I never went the lap robe route, as I owned both a German army KRADMANTLE Coat, & an AVIAKIT British heavy multi layer version of the KRADMANTLE. Both Long Coats, designed to totally enclose the riders torso & legs. With rubber b...

Re: Spin on oil filter conversion and oil cooler for RE GT

Personally I'd pass on it. My 2010 bullet has the same engine, & didn't overheat in FL or GA. Adding an oil cooler is unnecessary IMO, & might make things worse - Like getting OIL LEVEL correct & getting proper circulation. Having an OIL Sight Glass instead of a Dipstick is my least favorite RE feat...

Beware of women with cars like this. I knew a lovely young woman who kept her car just like this - Her personal hygiene wasn't any better.
Take a lesson from this, & avoid last minute embarrassment.

Whats wrong with the stock Clutch set up ? I'm a "keep it simple" fan, & have no complaints about the excellent URAL clutch operation.
A hydraulic clutch simply works better.
UNTIL IT DOESN'T. I avoid hydraulics whenever mechanical is available - No Sale Here.
