Re: So i bought a Ural.

The seat is nice but looks just like the others, so either they had no idea or where trying to inflate its worth. but i like it so no matter. Congratulations! :clap: Yep that seat so much looks like a dead ringer for the Euro solo seat it's gotta be The One. It has the special extended 'A' plate. A...

Re: What did you do ON your Ural today?

If it helps, my 2016 has Dowty washers for the drains and my dealer has always put on ACC Silcoset which is a combined adhesive & sealant, I also now got a tube of it for if and when I ever take a plug out.

For the past 4/5 years I have been answering with "toaster oven" on every form I have filled out from the VA to state licence when asked about gender. It has become automatic.

Re: Rode the '15...

That's my guess -- different clearances have an effect on valve opening duration, so it should have some effect on emissions. (I'm an engineer by training, but I do not profess to know engines well enough to say that definitively.) I'm guessing mechanical noise – some countries reg's are fussy in t...

Re: Jerry can attached to my Ural

Just FYI, I've learned I can go to 200 km or even 220 -230 -ish. But that's 'cause I pretty much consistently get 41 mpg (US, 49 mpg UK), but more usually I allow for about 37 (US, 45 UK), but obviously it depends on how much you twist the grip ... :D I agree about the jerry can size, 10L is still a...

Re: So i bought a Ural.

FYI, its a firm contoured seat for active riding, it isn't a soft bucket seat for passive riding like the police solo. Also, the springs are very firm so they act more like shock absorbers than the traditional soft spring seats where the seat bounces up and down. Yes I bought one and found it too h...

Re: Bogging at speed -- MT-11

Rather than 13mm, mine are a light higher at 14-15mm because the carbs were always running rich, and I'm trying to solve that problem. Unless in this particular case there's something different about the floats that I'm not aware of, but for all floats that I'm familiar with, raising the height(s) ...
