New Update.
Heard from Heindl, it seems that the Charlotte dealer ran it for a very long time with low oil and burnt the motor. Heindl is going to replace the motor. Be another couple of weeks. No problem. Told them to keep.it as long as they needed. They have called me every step of the way. I am a Heindl customer from now on for all my Ural needs.I wish we had a good dealer here in NC

FWIW,

Never, EVER tell any shop or tradesman ' keep.it as long as they needed. ' ! .

You think you're giving them time to do the job right but what they hear is " I don't care if I ever see this piece of junk again " .

Trust me, I know whereof I speak about this .

Nate that is usually very good advice but I am pretty sure Jon wants to get this bike back to Ernie pretty quickly. That being said, if they have to pull the engine, ship it, get it repaired, and shipped back, that usually takes a month.
I may not be good, but I'm slow.

We think the title will soon change to "Why I Love My 2017 CT" Just to let everyone know, this bike is done and waiting on transport back to North Carolina. We took care of a plethora of issues and performed some PM while it was in our hands.

My Dad’s unit patch for his B-47 group was modeled after Slim riding the A-bomb on its drop.

Congratulations. Life is like that, not always easy, but a lot of times you can work through it staying calm, getting information and finding out who the right people to work with are.

You guys are awesome. I am so thankful to Ural for getting it in the hands of people who care. I was in a bad place with this thing. I appreciate all the calls you guys gave me to let me know the progress. You sir, have a customer for life. If I could I would Hall it up there for every service. It's nice to deal with professionals.
Thanks so much. I look forward to riding it again!
