2019 Rear tire flat....

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.

If you were dragging the brake to any degree the smell would be awful.
I disagree. I had a pebble get between the caliper and pad on the front brake of my Patrol that caused it to drag. When I finally noticed it, the disc was red hot, but there was no smoke or smell.

I will mark the tire and see if it slips. As for the Rear brake. I wear the crown of the blind Dumb a$$. No need to call me your majesty. Dropped rig of at Raceway Ural and while telling Robbie about my break pad woes, He looks at it while still on the trailer and with great restraint doesnt call me a dumb a$$ "One of your brake pads on is on backwards".
Several lessons here.
1) Wear your glasses when changing tire on side of the road. And dont lose patience.
2) Get flashlight out when in dimly lit garage and see #1 before inspecting issue.
3) Just because you have been wrenching on your stuff since you were a little kid dont jump to conclusions
4) Dont be a Dumb a$$ so that you look like an idiot in front Dealer.. LOL

All good wisdom. One of the issues with Pumps (3 phase/480 volt) is they can run backwards and work. Kind of standard any time a flow issue to check that. Had a off site guy tell us to check one we were pondering and yep, it was running backwards. Talk about embarrassed.

If you read what I wrote you will note it said "Dragging Brake". A pebble is a different issue. Dragging can be caused by operator or a sticky puck and the entire surface is affected .

I've had a flat both front and back, in each case due to the inner tube chafing on a ridge created by having two rim strips with one overlapping the other. Dealer had some extra wide rim strips so when tubes were repaced we had those out too and replaced with one wide one in each. Both new tubes leak bit. I need to check the pressures at least once a week. The sidecar one practically loses none at all, and that's the last surviving factory fitted one. Go figure.

Brake pedal, yes I ride with the ball of the foot on the footrest to make sure I'm not inadvertently pressing it slightly.

The pusher valve does get banged up if you have a flat there. Mine was too.

The pebble was between the caliper and pad, keeping the pad against the disc just like a dragging brake. The heat eventually caused both pads to drag, and when I stopped it actually locked up until it cooled off. Both pads were glazed on their entire surface.

Has anyone installed rim locks on the pusher wheel? Common practice on motorcycles that run off road with lowered pressures.

ouch... admitting a mistake is almost the same as fixing a problem. I don't use rim locks, but have 18" wheels on, well for now, 2 of my Urals. Rim strip tape stopped my repeated flat tire woes.. In my case it was those pointy nipple heads that kept getting the tube. Been told that probpme is gone on the '19 model. On the 19" wheel on 1 of, well for now, 1 of my Urals, no problem except for forgetting the sidecar wheel is always powered (Sportsman, I know, how could i forget) and ripped valve stem right out if it...
