Wrist pin guide

Had some time yesterday and because I want to try the spin-on oil filter adapter on my GearUp decided to machine a couple temporary exhaust caps so I could remove the crossover pipe. Got that accomplished and since the lath was already dirty, I hate cleaning it but can't stand leaving it dirty, I th...

Re: I need a longer one!!! Matron..

Dan, I'm in Albuquerque NM, don't see your location posted. Just saw you found a fabricator so maybe you have resolved the problem. If not, let me know.

Re: I need a longer one!!! Matron..

Dan, I have a couple pieces that I machined when I replaced the Ural ball bearing with a HD roller bearing. Looks like the longer one you show. Using your photo from top of part to bottom, diameters are .249, .750 and .430. Lengths are .410, .190 and 1.150. Over-all-length is 1.750. The hole in the ...

Re: What's the stock carb needle on a 2013?

Eric,
Probably too late now but sure would be nice to see a photo of the 3 different needles side-by-side. Trying to figure out what the advantage of the raceway needle is, other than the ability to move the clips. Also would like to know if you have solved the hesitation or is it still there.

Don't think she would have been cited had she survived, van crossed solid double white lines.

Re: What's the stock carb needle on a 2013?

If you send a sketch via pm I'll machine a couple brass parts for you. If similar to washer would only take 10 minutes. If requires milling might take a little longer. Don't have my carbs off so not sure what you need.

Re: Oil Adaptor?

I put the adapter on my Tourist about 1500 km ago and think it's a good mod. So good I decided to make a couple improvements and machine a few for friends. Today was doing 2nd oil change on the bike since installing the adapter. Must have torqued the filter a little too tight last change and the ada...

Re: What's the stock carb needle on a 2013?

Eric, curious to know if you fixed the hesitation. 2013 GU has the hesitation from stop, worsens as it warms up. ABQ is 5,000 ft. Leftka style air box, drilled slides, stock carb needles tried shims but no change, many jet changes, now 40/125. Beginning to think might be ignition related. As soon as...

Re: Do NOT downshift your Ural... ?

Okay, I've not been able to ride either of my Ural's since this thread started. Both sitting back there in the shop, in 4th gear. Can't figure out how to get them back to 1st without risk of some serious damage. Been hoping someone would have a better answer than ' double clutching'. Howdy MonkeysU...

Re: Oil Adaptor?

I machined the adapter for my 2002 Tourist. Cross-over pipe is located just forward of the oil pan drain so no interference. Great mod, inexpensive filters available and easy to change. My 2013 GearUp cross-over pipe interferes and I'd worry about possibility of heat transfer to the filter. I think ...

Re: What did you do ON your Ural today?

Wife and I rode the GearUp to the Albuquerque Railyards Farmers Market this morning. Some of the buildings date to the 1800's. Now abandoned by the city and in the hands of a developer. With little or no security for the past few years most of the copper and anything else that could be carried off i...

Re: 75 year old CJ

Early 70's, my wife completed her residency and received her MD license. This came with a significant increase in pay and her brother asked for a loan of 500 Yuan so he could purchase a new military CJ. At that time the exchange rate would have been 8.3 RMB to $1.00. So, rig cost him about $60.25. S...
