Lost X spring in sidecar brake

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.

Lost X spring in sidecar brake

Post by DrFaulken » Sun May 05, 2019 4:24 pm

While checking my brakes on the Ural today, the weird "X" spring in the Brembo sidecar brake launched out of the assembly and into my yard.

Does anyone know either the part number for that piece, or the part number for our sidecar brake assembly? If the latter, I hope to find an exploded diagram and try to replace the part.

Thanks!

Contact OPP Racing in Ca. They're a great source of Brembo parts. You'll need the caliper in hand to get through this.
