However, a couple of weeks ago I visited the Ural dealer closest to me which is Coeur 'd Alene, Idaho, and he had one on the floor and offered to let me test ride it. :shock: I didn't have my wife w me but will go back for a...

Re: When did Urals get "good?"

Ducati Energia has diversified as many other company spinoffs do. They separate for various legal and business reasons and seek market expansion. But the original DNA can be traced to the same roots as the Ducati motorcycle company.

Re: When did Urals get "good?"

The new Ducati ignition didn't come out until '07 and it solved that problem. There are a lot of Type V ignitions still out there and going strong. Also, I was under the impression that Ducati's unofficial motto was "turning riders into mechanics since 1947." How are thier ignitions? The Ducati ign...

Re: Brackets and Gears

A bit ago I did up an Microsoft Excel Gearing Chart. http://www.kayakpilot.com/ural/gearing.xls It will give you various speeds/rpm figures. You can change some of the constants to show their effect on the final figures. It's interesting that my figures came to within a gnat's hind leg of yours. I ...

Re: 2011 anything new?

Doc, I haven't seen pics of the camouflage colors you're referring to or else I would post 'em. All I saw in the press release is the 2 tone orange and blue that I posted on the previous page. Rocky, I agree ... the orange and silver are amazing ~ it's a close 2nd choice for me. Blue n silver #1 ~ f...

Model Improvements 2003 - 2011

I'm currently doing my research on a new Ural. I'm reading this forum and other sites to become educated about this unique machine. I'm unimpressed with the older model's reliability but I'm similarly very impressed with some recent improvements. It seems like the factory has recently declared war o...
