Re: CRAP RALLY 4-6 May 2018 Asheboro NC

Change it before you come. Changing a tire at CRAP takes time away from, you know, CRAP.

Thanx. I'll bring the 12 pot in case of a late night coffee party or something.

Re: CRAP RALLY 4-6 May 2018 Asheboro NC

Hey folks, does anyone have a 32 cup coffee maker? With the number of Uralistas coming, my 12 cup drip coffee maker won't cut it.

Aw. You should have waited for a rally. I make bottle openers for door prizes.

Re: "Franken-Ural: Iraqi Bike in a Crate

There's a Yamaha gravity feed petcock on my 2009 - I don't know the part number, but someone on this forum may know. Also, the feed tube on it is a bit long, so you may have to cut it down so you don't go on reserve after 130 kms.

Re: "Franken-Ural: Iraqi Bike in a Crate

The online Mann filter catalog does not have C1363. The air filter is round and has an outside diameter of 5" and is 7" long.

Re: "Franken-Ural: Iraqi Bike in a Crate

Your rig will be happy at 45 - 50, but you can cruise at 60 with no problem (until you get to a hill). You have the "high performance" aluminum jug and piston kit, so you've probably got over 35 horsepower. Fuel flow at higher speeds may be an issue with the Russian petcock. I installed a Pingle rac...

Re: "Franken-Ural: Iraqi Bike in a Crate

I don't recommend LEDs on a 650 engine with Russian alternator. I switched most of mine (except turn signals) to LED. I had to buy a non-ground specific bulb for the taillight because it's constructed "backwards". Took it on a trip during the FART rally. When we returned, the engine dieselled backwa...

Re: "Franken-Ural: Iraqi Bike in a Crate

The air cleaner is an aftermarket one - not a Ural part. The elbows are tricky to find. I think I cleaned Gene out. Another way to replace the air filter element is to use three each Kohler engine air filters, part number 30-082. If you have the part number of the filter you found at Auto Zone, I'd ...

Re: "Franken-Ural: Iraqi Bike in a Crate

Oh, I forgot to mention. If you have Pekar carburetors, use ethanol free gas. The float valve gaskets dissolve in alcohol gas. If you have an emergency and need some gaskets, I have some spares. (It took me a month to get them in from Germany.)

Re: "Franken-Ural: Iraqi Bike in a Crate

Looks good. Small point - when I put mine together, the handlebars were rotated pretty high like yours are. It's more comfortable with the grips lower.

2017 SE Gear Up Metallic Bronze in Daytona, FL

I visited Daytona Beach on Thursday. The Indian Motorcycle dealer has a 2017 Special Edition Gear Up for sale in Metallic Bronze. It had 132 miles on it. The salesman told me that they had it for only three days, then proceeded to offer me a surprisingly low price below the $18k MSRP if I was willin...
