I am familiar with the sound and the resulting forehead slap on finally locating the source.

Re: My Denpr MT-11 Story

This is from someone that knows a hell-of-a-lot more about these engines than I ever will. "Adding a balance tube between the carbs DOES help! It smooths out the pressure waves that pound the carbs and helps with the reversion in the throats so that the idle orifices will flow fuel in mostly one dir...

Re: Sidecar wheel problem and alignment

I change the SC wheel using Gobium's 2x4 with no problem. Remove the spare and have it ready before pulling the SC wheel off. Same as GHGoodwin, tie or strap the center stand to the front wheel and block the rear wheel from both front and back.

Okay, now I'm laughing. Last couple months have been tough and really needed to lighten up.

Re: Importing a Ural from Russia

I don't see a benefit in purchasing a bike in Russia and shipping here. All Urals come from Russia. Might be tough to find a true 'Soviet era' bike here but I would guess one coming from Russia, especially if in perfect condition, will be made up of non-Soviet era parts anyway.

Re: What did you do to your Ural today?

Changed the pusher. If I never see another 'heavy duty' tube it'll be too soon. I'm guessing they could put treads on those tubes and do away with tires.

Re: Valve spring shim (?) slid and making metal on my head: Problem?

I think 2008 was when they went to stiffer valve springs. Pre-2010 Urals the rear of the camshaft sat in a bronze bushing. They found the stiffer springs were causing excessive wear in the bushing and changed to a roller bearing.

Re: What did you do to your Ural today?

Last week wanted to try the 'inertial supercharger' and ran a 1/4" vinyl hose between the carbs. Much the same results as others, Idle increased and smoothed out. Thought I'd make a 'plenum' to see if adding to the volume made a difference. Had some 3/4" OD x 5/8" ID aluminum tube with a hard black ...

Re: Ural ownership opinions

The Ural has been the vehicle of choice this past six weeks while our truck has been in and out of the shop with a problem difficult to diagnose.
Yesterday, after throwing a lot of money at it, finally figured out the root cause of the truck problem.

Re: Long trip Preparation advice

I'm wondering if an EFI 'dead battery' bike will start using the 9V?
Wouldn't the fuel pump require a little more juice?
