Re: Excellent Video on Replacing the Dough Nut

Igor I'd say the dough nut procedure was most correct. When doing your 'lube the splines PM', you're already half way there; now just remove the shocks, unbolt the swing arm, and replace the dough nut. I'd be hesitant to move the engine and gear box forward, I suspect it's more heavy than I care to ...

Re: Renovation time and costs?

The engine will tell you what needs to be replaced. Don't just assume you can do it in modules as time and money permit. First/most serious: check the engine oil regularly at the drain plug. If you have metal chunks of any size, it is new crankshaft time. Aluminum fines in the oil, you're on the roa...

Re: Excellent Video on Replacing the Dough Nut

With the fine print that I don't have a new bike to try this on - I watched the video about replacing the donut and wondered: wouldn't it be a lot easier to pull the engine mounts and move the engine forward? You could even angle the engine slightly upward. All you need is enough clearance to wiggle...

Re: Renovation time and costs?

You have too many variables to give a proper estimate. When you say "renovate" do you mean new crank, pistons, cylinders, heads, and bearings? Maybe a Herzog timing gear tower? How about the clutch pack? If so, you're talking around $1000-$1200 in parts. But these engines rarely need the entire inve...

Re: Blown final drive.

I'd say it was definitely worked on. Those bolts are spot welded in place. The ring gear and pinion were never Herzog, and you can order them from Europe if you are willing to wait, though shipping right now is really pricey. These folks are good, but there are others: https://www.ural-zentrale.de/d...

Re: New to me 2007 Ural Patrol, help me gurus with upgrades, tips and tricks.

You can definitely rebuild the final drive yourself. Instructions again at myural.com and on LeMoto YouTube videos. One thing to check is that if your fd drive spline gets pointy, your pusher hub is probably pointy, too. With the general condition of the bike in the pictures you've shown, I'm guessi...

Re: 972 Breakdowns - The Movie

Yep - I think it is well worth it. Cinematography is great. The drone views are spectacular. Hard to believe they did what they did and never quit. After watching this, none of us have anything to complain about at all if you ever have any problems with your Ural. Wish I had copied down all the numb...

Re: Advice on offer of 2003 Ural Troyka

The market in Sweden is likely very different from the US, but over here 4500E (roughly $5,500) would be on the high side for a 2003 without the upgrades you mention. It does have a 750 engine, but probably does not have the Herzog timing gear tower. It doesn't have the front disc brake that came in...

Re: How To Ride

Just a sideways note on flying the chair - a related thing to do just to show off is to find something you have to check on the bike like maybe the rear brake pedal. Walk around to the sidecar, crouch down, and lift the sidecar up (use legs, not back!), resting the bike on the left engine guard. It ...

Re: FNG- Looking forward to the Wisdom

I'm not aware of anyone who has expressly equipped a Ural for what you're thinking of, but many of the threads on storage are adaptable. There is a surplus Pelican-style case that fits on the trunk rack like it was made for it, though it looks like a big brick streamlining-wise. I'd also recommend t...

I don't put it on the painted surfaces 'cause I have shiny paint (as opposed to the mat finishes). I do spray it lightly on the painted seams and pretty much anything else metal. Make sure not to get it on any of the rubber like the kick start rubber, gear shift rubber, or tires, of course. It isn't...
