Re: CV Carburetors to fit your Ural

:lurker: We buy new carbs and machine and alter them to the specs. required for our Ural bikes . I'm interested in the details of this, if you're willing to describe them. uh guys, this is Terry, if he says it good for Urals, it is. Like arguing about Urals with Gene, Sky, or Sergei, may be worse.....

Re: CRAP XIV HEAD COUNT

Folks, as much as I want this to happen, be prepared for it to not be able to happen. Like many of you all, I am on the cusp of the "group of concern" and regardless of my previous post, have to face reality. Getting another dose of reality now. VA just cancelled my Uncles burial in Mass. - in mid A...

Re: Cruising at 80mph on my GU

80, on a new Gear Up is more than just possible, it can happen accidentally...trust me, I know... My Retro feels so quaint nowadays and it used to be the speedy Ural... still scary once you realize the damn thing can really go that fast...

Have had 7 BMWs, 4 Harleys and some other stuff and somehow ended up with 3 Urals. Watch them, they tend to multiply if you are not careful.

Re: Almost Got Hit with Girlfriend in the Sidecar

I refuse to live in fear due to the stupidity of others. Some prefer to, so be it. I have seen one thing that gets the idiots attention, a camera on my helmet with the led flashing red. Jerks can't see the damned motorcycle but they see that LED every time, but some just don't give a damn. Last year...

Re: Engine knock

Hmm, my '11 has 108K, 98 k on the engine that was rebuilt twice in the 1st 10K... I beat the crap out of that poor Retro and she just keeps on running. Guess you either have bad luck early then all ok after Sergey (IMWA) rebuilds it, or enjoy it for years then get to apply Zen and the Art of Motorcy...
