Re: Ural Tonneau Management

Something that wasn't obvious to me until it was pointed out by a German friend - the windshield was made originally to lower into the tub when you didn't have a passenger. Just unattach the skirt and lower the windshield onto the seat. The tonneau then attaches to the same metal brackets the window...

Re: This Might Explain It

The wiring harnesses lasted decades (unless the voltage regulators burned them).
Any harness would last forever if it never had any current running through-

Re: Foreigner searches for and wants to register bike permanantly in NC

+1 on RC20. You can tell the insurance company the bike is in storage and not in use and they "suspend" the policy. You still have to pay the premium, but they extend the time period forward, i.e. if you pay for 3 months and then suspend for 2 months, the company doesn't refund the money but bumps t...

Re: Altitude Limit?

Downshifting is normal for going uphill on any good condition Ural. It's not as much a function of carb or EFI as it is more a function of %, length of grade and load with an old design 40hp motor. If you're pulling paved mt passes in 3rd at 55mph...you won. I've always heard that airheads like to ...

Re: Thank you Ilya, IMWA reworks my rig.

+1 - Don't skimp on the post-op physical therapy. Do as much as you can and then a little bit more. Everyone I know with hips and knee replacements has said it is essential to having a full range of motion. Think about like you're breaking in a Ural-

Good luck

Re: 2006 rear wheel

Put the bike up on the center stand. Put it in neutral and try to rotate the wheel - it should rotate freely. If not, loosen the brake adjustment screw until it does. Another way: start the bike and put it in gear, then screw in/out until it is free. Beyond that you are into adjusting the shoes. Use...

Re: Mikuni rigid carb holder

Same exact idea, Charlie. Just isolates the carb from vibration and takes any potential vibration away from the rubber bits.

That looks solid as a battleship -

Re: Mikuni rigid carb holder

Van and I talked a bunch about this early design, and, aside from the support given to the carb if you kick it, one of the other benefits may be preventing failure of the compliance fitting. The carb is like an end weight vibrating ever-so-slightly up and down as you ride. The weak point in that wei...

Re: CRAP 2010

Wow! Not that CRAP is the only or most important rally, but maybe the history thread should be a sticky so it can be referenced and added to. Some beautiful and well-loved bikes in there, and Uralistas current and gone.

Re: Final Drive Surgery with Pics

Depending on whether you have a welder or not and how many times you might run into something like that race, there's this or similar. I don't have a welder, so went with this: https://www.harborfreight.com/slide-hammer-and-bearing-puller-set-5-pc-62601.html https://shop.harborfreight.com/media/cata...

I read back through the thread and can't figure out which race you're talking about. Which race are you having trouble removing?

Re: CRAP 2010

JohnR will have to say for sure, but I think this year's was CRAP 13 or 14.
