Interview With Ryan from ElectroJet detailing 2014 EFI

Woe unto you that bought the first model year of a major remake, perhaps this section can help address any 2014 and later model Ural "imperfections". Here's a special section for folks with the latest rigs to discuss 2014 and later model-related topics such fuel injection, 3-wheel disc brakes, hydraulic steering dampers, spin-on oil filters and other anomalies that don't belong on true Russsian motorcycle ;-P We've gone from using big hammers and greasy wrenches to needing computers and Ouija boards in order to fix our rigs.
Forum rules
Please keep this section specific to issues pertaining to 2014 and later models such as fuel injection, sidecar and rear disc brakes and so forth. Ask general or non-2014 and later specific questions in the main Hammerin' & Wrenchin' section.

Thanks for posting the interview. Very interesting. There's lots to learn, and I'm impressed with what Ural has done with the new bikes, (but I plan on staying with the old technology).

Some of my family have asked if Urals come with social lives, I am thinking they do, we have met the nicest people with our Ural.

Yes, that's a great post and interview. I noticed that there is an additional hose connector from the fuel tank on the right-hand side as opposed to the overflow/relief hose that usually just drops towards the ground. The connector to the tank almost looks like the same base template as where the petcock attaches to the tank on the left-hand side. I didn't notice this on the pictures and video that a couple of the other new 2014 owners had posted.
The self testing diagnostics is a little freaky for me to absorb. Not that it is a new thing on motorcycles but on a Ural, wow.

Very interesting. :foilhead:

Sounds like there will be some more owner options for maintenance and testing down the line.

And looks like the 2014s will have a different take along spares list for trips. The blinks code feature for repair is good.

I guess we will look forward to the new owners going out and breaking things for our benefit. :o

Very interesting- thanks for posting.

I was hoping that the O2 sensors might be wideband (he mentions narrowband being used), since with wideband sensors it might be simple to take air/fuel ratio readings right off of the stock sensors to drive real-time air/fuel ratio readouts, but it probably makes sense (simplicity/ economy) to use the more common narrowband sensors.

I'm still researching which O2 sensors they are using. He mentions Delphi in the video, but I can't find what model.

Still working on it!

When is someone going to give the EFI a water crossing test?

Count the number of wires, 4 wires or less is narrow band. 5 wires is wide band

If you can keep your head when all about you are loosing theirs, you probably don't fully understand the situation!
