Re: For the Sportsman.

Not noted for being a Speed Demon company!

Also people would be very puzzled (more so than they are now)

My Current Fluids Choice 2019 cT

Going over the manual the Motul oil that is recommended is standard not synthetic (FD is synthetic) I got the fluids changed at 750 miles. But winter is coming on and I had some issues with water in the FD. As Motul is not readily available here I went with Mobile Synthetics which is. Current for th...

Re: cT vs GU Different Carry Capacity?

I suppose it could be. It would have to be 390 then. Assuming a 200 lb rider, still leaves good haul in the hack. That said, Hack with a passenger and more gear would push well over the weight edge . Keeping in mind this is dry weight so you add in tools, helmet, coats, gloves etc for the rider and ...

Re: better shifting

Hesitate on the upshift, add a tad of throttle on the downshift. "Easier" to do when you have a neutral gate to pass through between gears (Eaton Fuller). Those were designed for a clutch less shift. Ural no. While different type of box and gears. I am thinking about a mod as well. I tried toe shif...

I have a CATERPILLAR placard off a Generator I could mount! 12 inches long so it would show nice.

Re: New guy!

Heck I don't feel so bad. I had the cT up to 55 comfortably the first day (and it turns out my steering damper was coming undone on both ends - took me a week to find the other end loose and it was 30% better!) Joining the group was the best thing I could have done (well short of an expensive trip j...

Re: tyres

It depends on the year, someone else will have to answer about the Patrol you have (or look at the manual and the tires)

Newer ones all use the same tire. Older ones had an odd ball on the hack I think but not sure which ones they are.

Re: Final Drive leaking from plastic capped nut?

Rather than waste good oil, use diesel. It has lubricity enough at idle. Get it up on the stand and spin the rear for a couple of minutes with diesel in the FD. Filling I had the same issue, it boiled out during a 10 mile run. the 2014 (I believe) and newer have a different FD. Doesn't matter, fill ...

Re: Ural Newbie Hello

Laugh, I had an awful time with mine, I got it in the end and asked the Sales guy to undo it, which he did. grrrr (granted I wanted to get on the road and out of town so was not into screwing around any more)

Same thing, don't lock it and I have not.

cT vs GU Different Carry Capacity?

Being a Technician/ Engineer in my latter work years I tend to get into the weeds on tech stuff (sometimes latter than sooner) So reading the manual the Dry weight of a cT is : 700 lbs and the GU: 730 (makes sense sort of with the stuff for the 2WD on GU - don't get me going on dry weight, at least ...

Re: Real World and/or "Lab" Skidplate Testing

Unfortunately I think you are trying to spit into the teeth of a Hurricane here. Even with a rigid engineer analysis and going with material that have a designated amount of give or a solid you are going to bend the frame is a tough slog at best and really a guess. The problem is getting test assump...

Re: 2019 cT With Trace of Water in FD

I kept the Gearbox to just shy of the dipstick (measurement volume wise as it takes close to a Liter) Less of an issue and add to normal level on the gear box? At this point I think the water was a case of a long days run (9-10 hours at that point) in 75 degree temps and then hits a serious soaking ...

Re: Oil pressure drops when engine gets warm.

It's a swedish brand, Biltema. Mineral oil with spec API SJ/CF, dunno if that tells you anything. Yes it does. I won't recommend synthetic but its an option if you run it in the cold. More along let sleeping dogs lie. It should have a weight number on it as well, 20W-50 (European may express it dif...
