Re: What did you do ON your Ural today?

Appendix: the early hydraulic ones had a tendency to pack up, spring a fluid leak, my one failed on the dealer's floor! Bike hadn't been used yet :o

Hey Jeff,

From your photo, it looks like you may have some switch guts

Re: New to wrenchin' on this thing!

Just a thought, it's just possible the air filter housing has let some water in. Can be a bit of an issue with the old "biscuit tin" metal air cleaners.
