Somehow, I'm thinkin' this has nothing to do with engines, pipes, carburetors, air cleaner housings, air filters.. .

1) Only Ural on street

2) Everything else runs on Lucas electrics.

That's why I didn't mention any modifications, as one of the criteria is that the rider might not even be aware why they're the fastest.

Often the fastest person on the road is the dumbest and they actually believe otherwise.

The question is too open. Answers could be repowered with a V8, super or turbo charging, fully fared, etc.. You need some qualifiers or this is little more than a guessing game which means a momkey could guess right.

That said, with the qualifiers being stock Ural with sidecar, I would say stripped of any excess weight, the lightest possible rider, no windshields, tonneau on the tub and rock hard tires. Minor mods would be free flowing exhaust and intake, max possible advance on high octane gasoline.

Nice answers fellas, I didn't anticipate you guys having so much fun with this. Hopefully the answer won't be too anticlimactic.
So, some qualifiers or hints. I was talking rig but would also apply to a solo. One of the two things could be a mechanical mod. The rig might have a lot of excess farkles strapped to it but that would be irrelevant. Some time ago this rig would have carburetors but now it would only have FI. No trailer hitch.
I'll reiterate "expensive and risky" :lol:

Happy trails,

A new Ural with aftermarket exhaust.

"a mechanical mod" could be several things, but aftermarket exhausts are the most common one done to a motorcycle.
"Some time ago this rig would have carburetors but now it would only have FI " suggests time periods and availability.
"expensive and risky " somewhat subjective, but new Urals aren't cheap for sure, and not being a Honda, there's a greater risk of having issues.

I've noticed that new bikes often have a bit of extra zip on the very top end that fades a little bit as they break in and gain performance across the rest of their power band.
That's all I have as it reflects my experience and observations within the confines of the presented parameters. Realistically there can't be a "correct" answer as we all have unique circumstances and experiences.

Unless you are talking about a two cylinder, two-stroke Ural sidecar, I'm going to guess you are very wrong!
