Re: HCS Shocks

Haven't torqued them up to the spec in the manual. Just have them snug to tight for now. Stephen, that´s spot on! Don´t torque them up too tight! Better use some Loctite. These shocks want to have a snug tight bolt, otherwise they might start to leak, where the damper rod goes into the damper cylin...

Re: Remember when.......

Remember when ... Argh!! :twisted: I just forgot about all of that and made up my mind to make some new oversize valveguides and seats last week to get my ural back on the road when you came up with it . Anyway, I think I´ll continue :mrgreen: It´s sitting now for 5 years lack of quality parts and ...

Re: New here in the UK with a 1966 Dnepr K750 - overheating

If you´ve got your barrels and pistons back from the machine shop, check for piston ring gap prior to mounting rings on pistons. Put the rings inside the barrel, like 15mm under the sealing surface and measure the gap. It should be between 0,4 and 0,5 mm on each ring. If too tight, carefully put the...

Re: New here in the UK with a 1966 Dnepr K750 - overheating

I would recommend to take pistons and barrels to the machine shop guy and let him measure both to really know what he has to do. Barrels are always machined to the pistons specs! I personally would tell him to bore them to 0,08 ...0,09 mm play with a tendence to 0,09. 0,08 is ok but needs a longer b...

Re: Dnepr MT10 + Bing CV 32mm + eating plugs

Another question.... When butterflies are closed while idling, does slightly opening them (using butterfly screw) only adds air, thus making mixture leaner or does it add main jet mixture too already? Would CO meter be the ultimate tool for adjustment? I was thinging about acquiring one, or using w...

Re: New rider, opinions please!

When I got my Ural in 1993 it was my only vehicle and I had to commute 45 km one way. That was really a task. After a while I got comfortable with it, but Urals back in the day weren´t as reliable as nowadays. Mine really suffered from doing 18 k km per year and I was wrenching more than I was ridin...

Re: Dnepr MT10 + Bing CV 32mm + eating plugs

I would consider the 32mm Bing carbs too big for a 650 Dnepr, but they should do when jetted right. These kind of Bing carbs sometimes have problems with the sealing of the choke department (in fact it´s not a choke but a seperated little carb system just for starting) https://image.jimcdn.com/app/c...

Re: Horst HCS CP106 Shocks

First I am glad you like your new shocks! i don´t earn money with talking about HCS shocks here. It´s about I like what Horst is doing and his attitude. And I sold quite a few of these shocks over the years with most of the times very positive results. I am not sure I can give a percentage, 40 - 100...

Re: Cut windshield?

here in Germany these windshields have a TUEV approval and may not be tinkered with. if one shortens them, it should look like they come from the manufacturer after the cut. I do it like Barry describes it. After cutting I make a good finish on the edge by sanding it down and round, beginning with 8...

Re: Horst HCS CP106 Shocks

Barry, the hint to take the rubber off it´s seat is new for me after all those years. The reason I didn´t try any time is that I tried to take off the rubber of a side ´car frame many years ago and it would´t get lose, only with really violent force. It was just baked to it´s seat. So I didn´t think...

Re: New here in the UK with a 1966 Dnepr K750 - overheating

Hi Claus. Thanks very much again for the comprehensive reply. You´re welcome! I've bought some 78.46 Almot pistons - Actual Bore: 3.0905" / 3.0910" (78,498mm- 78,511mm) There should be 0,08 to 0,09 mm play between widest part of piston and barrel. So you plan to mount pistons with only 0,038 to 0,0...

Never saw anything like that, they are fixed on anything else I ever worked on.

Ural, learning new things all the time. Ergh.
Well, it IS a Ural and it will remain one. Lots of funny things to discover on it. Old or new model. :mrgreen:

Good you´ve got it now. Well done.

Re: cT Sidecar Shock Removal

And I am repeating myself, but if the shock has no function suspension wise, why replace it? How do you get the idea that the shock has no function suspension wise? It's it's main job. The problem is that the swing arm's travel is limited by this rubber. When I watch the video you mentioned, the gu...
