Re: C-19 and the Ural Community (Corrected Title)

Well, I have a guess why there´s no toilet paper all around the globe: One person is sneezing and 500.000 $#!+ in the pants. We have no power shortage at all here in Germany. YET. As of today 8 am in most areas shops are closed, as long as they are not supermarkets, pharmcies, hardware stores or gas...

Re: Ural 650 crank small end bushing failure

Bad small ends are very common on 650 engines. The bore is very often oval and taper and the surface is far from being smooth enough. What I do suggest is: ream the bore until it's cylindric and make a new bushing from bearing bronze (that would be RG 7 in german terms)The bushing should be with an ...

Re: Cam timing valve adjustment type questions for dneprlover

I have experienced this problem before on Dnepr MT11 and MT16. There could be different reasons for that: Timing mark on the fly wheel incorrect Incorrect seat for fly weight on the cam shaft incorrect timing marks on timing gears poorly made fly weight mechanism There are people here in the forum k...

Re: Cam timing valve adjustment type questions for dneprlover

Curt, if you set timing on the advanced timing mark, you have to open fly weights completely (to full advance timing). Otherwise it will not work. The reason to do the setup this way is to be shure the advance won´t go further than full advance. If you set timing in retard, you don´t know what it´s ...

He wants $2200 for it, even I know he’s dreaming trying to get that for it! :mrgreen:
Mike, don´t know where the prices are down under, but the bike we built up was complete, looked better and was around €700. And everything on it was complete junk and had to be repaired/swapped.

Re: New Dnepr Acquisition

What parts Dnepr used around the fall of the Soviet union is known only unto god. ..... but most of the problems with those involve float needles and that is easily sorted. You´re right. I recall many Dnepr MT11 rigs coming to my shop with 3 km on the clock, sold outside the works premises by Dnepr...

Re: Frayed Clutch Cable

The suggestin to buy two is spot on. I always carry a spare clutch cable, a spare brake cable and a spare throttle cable in my Ural rig. To prevent premature wear in future you´ve got to make absolutely shure, that the nipple in the hand lever is able to move freely! As it looks on your picture it´s...

Re: New Dnepr Acquisition

Your bike would have been fitted with K65 from the factory. Dneprlover, I might be wrong but I recall K63 carbs on about all Dneprs of the 90ies I have seen . (as long as they were about original) Where there is no big difference between K63 and K65. Both will fit, but some inner parts are different.

Re: Dumb A$$ Attack - Parking Brake

There will be folks who tell to renew all parts. My opinion is: as long as the brake disc rotor has no visable cracks or is bent to a soup bowl and the brake works ok, and the caliper releases the rotor like it should, it´s all o.k. If you want to change the pads for piece of mind, do so. These comp...

Well, congrats to your great success! these rigs are fun! 7. Dangerous rear brake, she stops on it but its almost impossible to depress it without some freaky ankle/foot twisting...not nice !!!

Since then I've set her to 0.5mm intake and 0.5mm exhaust which seemed ok, but now I've set her to 0.4mm intake and 0.6mm exhaust and she seems happier.

:shock: 0,5mm? :shock:
I know about 0,10 to 0,15 inlet and 0,15 to 0,20 exhaust, the russian book says 0,05mm (wich I find too narrow)

Re: My Dnepr MT-11 Story

I have customers with those handlebars on 650 Ural and MT11 Dnepr models. The front brake won´t be the same with this type of brake lever. The activating angle is not as good as with the original lever and they are made in a poor quality, as are the cables. The electrical switches are different, so ...
