Hälsningar från Sverige!

Post by Simon13 » Tue May 03, 2022 2:51 pm

Hello I'm new here and I just bought myself a -67 Ural.
It is a non-running bike and I bought it for my amusement :D

But first of all I need some sort of workshop manual that I understand (not in Russian).
When I search the web and this forum I mainly find manuals for the later 750 model.

Maybe someone here can help me find one in English? PDF? Swedish? :P
In worst case German. But I can't understand the Cyrillic letters.

Thanks in advance!

That's quite a screen name. I assume it is pronounced John Smith.

The manual that covers the 650 engine bikes that I've seen is for later models, up to the last year which was 2000. Although I suspect that the earlier 650 OHV engines are very similar if not almost identical. Someone that knows these older models can probably tell you how much the later 650 and the early 650 engines have in common, if anything.

There is a section in the Greasy Wrench with info. Cannot remember if there is a link to the last 650 manual or not. Here is a link to that thread. Look thru it and see what you can find. viewtopic.php?f=25&t=37842

So, you bought a non-running '67 Ural for amusement. Hmmm... are you a dentist by any chance?? :wink:

I'm assuming that it's a M-67, not a 1967 model. I've got a M-67 Repair Manual, but it is far to big to post here. http://cvkustoms.com/Technical/Motorcycle_Manuals.html
Has several manuals that will be helpful. The 2000 Ural repair manual will help with mechanical matters, but not carb or most electrical matters.
Worse comes to worst, I can put the manual on a USB stick and post it to you, send me a PM. Be aware that even though it is in English, it is translated from Russian, and assumes mechanical knowledge.

Hälsningar från Världen!!

You have to start somewhere... much information is 'universal' between models and years.

If it is a 1967 model, that makes it an early Ural-2 aka M-63, a photo can clarify the issue.

Hello again and thanks for all the answers!

The bike is a M63 Ural-2 from 1967. Even though I've found some parts from different years on it...
Bought it from a guy with connections in Russia. He helped me get in registered here in Sweden.
I guess it previously had a Soviet life of "tager vad man haver" (take what you have?)

cvkustoms had lots of good information. Many thanks!

Should I post my progress in this thread or start a new one somewhere else on the forum?

Välkommen till forumet!

Great to see more Uralists in Sweden (too bad you live on Sweden's baksida ;) ). Except my own two Urals I've only seen one in the wild here, on RV40 outside of Eksjö a few years ago.

I think you can extract a lot of good info from the guys at rjmck.se. A lot of them seem to be Stockholmare as well. We have two professional Ural mechanics in Sweden, one of which lives close to you.

I would say though that living on the vischan is favorable when having a Ural, because the breakdowns are way less stressful on the grusväg than on the väggren on a tvåplusettväg like my last time. But I guess you Stockholmare don't stressar så much with mycket trafik.
