Re: heated grips

No prior experience with grip heaters and decided to try a set of inexpensive wrap-around heaters. 2 years now and think I made the correct decision. Put them on for winter then off and store them when it warms up. Maybe 20 minutes to install and secure, 10 minutes to remove. Only problem I have is ...

Pringles has wine? Put me down for a sixer of Sea Salt & Vinegar.

Re: Using later model air intake on 650 Tourist

Can't locate my perch ring drawing but have the dimensions.
I used 1.960 ID, 2.280 OD and .812 length.
If I were to do again I would increase the OD to 2.290.
Even though not needed, I put hose clamps on the carb side of mine. Slight OD increase would remove any concern about fit.

Re: Using later model air intake on 650 Tourist

A little more work but how about turning perch rings for the carb and airbox that fit the John Deere hose? That's basically what I did for my Tourist and GearUp. The carb rings fit the wide part of the hose and the airbox size fit the corregated part of the hose.

Re: Clutch Throw Out Bearing

Had problems with the throwout bearing on my Tourist. Replaced with a HD bearing. Machined a new release rod tip to better fit the HD bearing and match the original length. Also turned a teflon sleeve to fit in the release slider. Figured it would help with the alignment and maybe increase the beari...

Re: What did you do to your Ural today?

In my defense, the 14 hour drive thru ice and snow to deliver the bike probably killed any hornets in the nest.
Nice job cleaning the rig, looks really good.

Re: What did you do to your Ural today?

Pulled the headlight to access the speedo on my Tourist. Re-installed the headlight and wouldn't function. All other lights and indicators were working. Spent the better part of an hour cussing and checking before I threw in the towel and contacted Albuquralque. Always good to have a back-up plan. H...

Re: NEED "what did your URAL do to you today" thread ?

"THANKS, That's pretty much what I wanted to know, although I'd like my second nipple on the opposite end - from the original. By turning the whole tap the original nipple will point in the general direction of the right side carb. WHAT did you use for a Replacement Nipple ?? do they sell them - or ...

Buy two. I'll pay for one and we can split the freight cost.

Re: NEED "what did your URAL do to you today" thread ?

"* In Closely examining my Japanese die cast replacement fuel tap, I noticed the opening I re-stuck the nipple into, looks as though it could be drilled clear through - to add a second nipple, thereby converting it to a 2 outlet fuel tap, & eliminating the "T" fitting in the lines. ANYBODY ELSE NOTI...

SoCal question

Was thinking I might sell my 2002/2003 Tourist but wife suggested gifting it to my son in SoCal. The bike has a clear title here in New Mexico and is currently registered. Only has 11500 km (7145 mi) on it. Can anyone offer opinion / advice on whether or not he would be able to get it registered the...
