Re: MB650 Operation/Repair manual

Is it worth forking out £30+ for an MN650-M1 operation manual? I have one for an MT16 - can't see why they would be any different? Likewise is the MT16 repair manual worth another £30+? I have a copy of the operation manual. Unless of course, someone has a pdf of either..... Dan There'll be some mi...

Re: Want to modify side car supension.

...and there is also another cheap shock option, but it's not a solution. Polish made after-market shocks http://www.ural-zentrale.de/product_info.php/info/p503_Suspension-strut--complete.html cost less than 1/3 of Sachs, but it's crappy piece of junk. It hardly works even new and fails very soon. ...

Re: Where can I learn more about the 650s?

Ural 650 crankshafts are readily available - in China. You can get just about all 650 parts except the frame, crankcase, gearbox and final drive housing.

KMZ stubby leading link, KMZ swingarm arrangement with a modified shock absorber mount. Why? I have no idea.

Re: Round the World ride - what spares/tools would you take?

I'd seriously reconsider going around the world with a dog due to quarantine restrictions and import permits. This website should give you some guidance - http://www.pettravel.com/passports_quarantine_rabies_rules.cfm Also be aware that in Islamic countries there are social restrictions on dogs and ...

Re: Newbie with a Ural M67-36 650 *Updated 12 Oct

The wiring harness is a good price and even if it needs some mods to fit your bike it's a good start. You can either use the PP330 regulator or the electronic replacement the 33.3702 e-bay number 290422012025 The electronic is cheaper, but may be a Chinese copy. The contactless ignition is a very ea...

Re: oil delivery AND alternator modifications

He said he drilled holes in the bottom of the piston skirt to help with oil cooling at slower speeds, even showed me one. I don't have a picture, but if I remember correctly it looked like 4 1/8" holes on the lower part of the skirt on each side opposite the wrist pin holes. Something like this? te...

Re: Craigslist & Soviet Steeds is 98% BS? (title edited by m

There does seem to be an awful lot of incorrect advice being given, especially for older model Urals and for Dneprs. For example, in the thread http://www.sovietsteeds.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=35963&start=15 "rivers" is telling someone about a generator when his bike clearly has an alternator...

Re: Newbie with a Ural M67-36 650 *Updated 12 Oct

A Russian G (Г) is the same as a Greek Gamma, so unless you have a Russian keyboard layout some people write L as an upside down Gamma. The fusebox on a M-67 is normally on the LHS behind the headlight. Bit of a pain to get to so someone has moved it. URAL MOTO was the brand name the factory used in...

Re: Newbie with a Ural M67-36 650 *Updated 12 Oct

Ignore everything "rivers" has told you about the electrics. Your bike is fitted with a 150W 12V ALTERNATOR, model G-424. The box next to the speedometer is a fusebox. The box on the RHS marked PP330 is the relay/regulator. The Sparkrite SX2000 is an early aftermarket electronic ignition. It's trigg...
