Re: 1955 imz

By the way, no Ural motorcycle existed before the 1960s.

I'd be curious of how easy it is or isn't to pull start. Especially in the cold.
Just use the electric starter.

Re: fun video about Ural.

One of the most inaccurate videos about IMZ and KMZ bikes ever made. Even included a TIZ-AM-500 as a Dnepr.

Re: Project fodder

How many of you see an engine like this and think "Hey! I could mount that in my old Royal Enfield!" More I look it, the more do-able it looks. https://www.ebay.com/itm/411cc-10HP-Diesel-Engine-4-Stroke-Single-Cylinder-72-2mm-Shaft-Length/264181672070?_trkparms=aid%3D555018%26algo%3DPL.SIM%26ao%3D1...

I want that IFA.
IMZ was involved in the design of the AWO BK350. Mainly in the gearbox, I believe.

Re: Hello from a new IMZ M61 owner.

.I can now see the real extent of the headstock bearing wear !!!! Absolutely shocking :o .... but then they needed doing anyway, so I'm just hoping the bearing seats aren't destroyed !!!! Forget about standard bearings - use these https://ru.aliexpress.com/item/33049562538.html?spm=a2g0o.detail.100...

Re: 1968 Ural Motorcycle & Sidecar - $1000

Not a 1968, more like a domestic 1998! Perhaps good for spare parts or a sidecar.

Re: Hello from a new IMZ M61 owner.

Ignore Claus, as he's ignorant of the facts. Your photo shows a fine spline drive shaft that was first used in the mid to late 1990s. Factory workers made shorter fine spline driveshafts to fit the short framed M-63 and M-66, they are fairly rare. I obtained one for a project, but ended up using coa...

Claus: I have never worked on one, bare 6208 and then a separate crank shaft seal?

All mine were engines with Babbitts and a seal.
Don't forget the circlip hiding under the seal.

Re: Dealer Help

Contact the NHTSA about the problem, as rims are covered by their certification. If other 2013 rims have been affected, they may order a safety recall.

Re: Hello from a new IMZ M61 owner.

There won't be RAL colour standard, not for Soviet paint, though there will be a Soviet GOSTSTANDART, but good luck in finding it. A quick search for ГОСТ краски и лаки came up with over 100 GOST. Add to the fact that GOST date from the late 1960s, then rocking horse sh!t is easier to find. The colo...
