Re: 2019 Fuel Injection Hiccups Cold

Could see low voltage making a kickstart more difficult. Haven't noticed my Ural having a hard start in the 30's and Goldwings start right off everytime unless the battery isn't in such good charge. Guess I'm lucky to have a garage to stuff vehicles in :roll: https://media1.giphy.com/media/l0ErSSDj...

Re: 2019 Fuel Injection Hiccups Cold

I never had any problem starting my carbies with the Kickstarter in any weather. The Electrojet FI is another story. Glad the Keihin is an upgrade. Whats the lowest start temp? I have some suspicions the low battery voltage affects the ignition system if electric start used. The Nighthawk S had no ...

Re: 2019 Fuel Injection Hiccups Cold

It fired up as good as my pickup does at those temps. Truly was impressive. My carburated cycles would have been a lot iffier if they started at all adn that would have been with a charger. I would have been playing with the choke for a while regardless. As long as it starts I can for sure let it wa...

Re: 2019 Fuel Injection Hiccups Cold

I have started it at 10 degrees (F) and it did start at 12 or so after a 4 deg cold soak all night. The map issue is in the warmup area, just a hint at 50+ or so, but really prominent at the 12 I tried to drive off in (again the machine itself would have been equalizing so it was between 4 and 12 - ...

Re: Replacement Parking Brake Cable 2017 Gear Up

I wish they would open a shop in Alaska! I see nothing but fun technical good things and knowledge from them. Few dealers get to that depth and not expected but a treat when you have a jem like that even in your region. I would make a trip just to visit them (if it was not 3000 miles away :? )

Re: Trunk Latch Breaking Key

During my travels, I've seen any number of helmet stickers, applied on motorcycles as well as helmets, that make the owner's feelings on vandalism, etc. abundantly clear to the reader. Here's one that uses diplomacy to get the point across. https://i.postimg.cc/KjBqLB0w/Don-t-touch-bike.jpg ('Twas ...

Re: Trunk Latch Breaking Key

If I have to park my car in the street, I leave the luggage compartment cover and the glove compartment open, so everybody can see that there are no valuables inside. Sounds like Oahu! MO to cruise the parking lots at the beach. You would think a cop stationed there fore a while and clean them out,...

Re: Vodka Can?

There's no petcock, no reserve. Your odometer reads in kilometers and 150 is usually a pretty safe "yup get fuel" where you'll have about a gallon left. 2019 reads miles, has had me confused with the reference to KMs on previous machines. All previous bikes has petcock. Good news is the trips in wi...

Re: 2019 Fuel Injection Hiccups Cold

In a way good to know. I assume fairly warm temps (50+) in that area? (just looked, 69, yee hah) Pretty much my experience in warmer temps (by our standards pretty hot) then as well. Winter trips except the once where it had been started and warmed up (a number of hours latter when I left) so warmup...

Re: iridium Spark Plugs

Always use the mfg spec. Plugs fit a variety of engines - rarely is it right for yours.

Re: Jumping Right In

Urals started as a licensed copy of a pre WWII, R71 BMW - then were parallel engineered AS A SIDECAR TUG. Agreed it was at least licensed though I tend to think given and the R71 Sidecar As the R71 did have and was a sidecar cycle, I think they got they got the whole thing engineering drawing wise....

Re: Jumping Right In

Thank you RC, but I think that one's a little too expensive for me at this juncture, especially considering the distance. I would like to ride the Dalton Highway some time in the future, though. You want to go to Prudhoe bay? Not so much as a destination, but as a journey. It seems like it would be...
