Any problems with 2019 Ural's

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.

I have 2000 miles on my cT so far. I had one MIL show up and part was replaced (never could find out what it was (annoying story), suspect O sensor)

As near as I could tell there was no affect on mileage.

Oil use is very low. Fuel Injection is pretty much as promised (I have a burble at idle once in a while for a short time but it clears up fast). Any throttle and zero issues.

MPG has been low of 33 with the cruddy Washington State gas (high octane but has Ethanol) Otherwise its been a solid 36 with decent gas on average and a high of 40 mpg (runs of 36-38 on low octane which is all I will use and sometimes can get in the long open runs of AK)

Low fuel light is reliable.

Gearbox is on par with the R80GS we had. Solid so far.

I have been over the machine on the fasteners, worst was the steering damper had loose bolt on one end and the bracket on the steering head had its two fasteners loose. I ran 800 miles before I found the bracket ones (I did a go over the first day I had it but it was 95 and I didn't have a bucket to sit on)

There were a few that were not as tight as they should have been but not loose, definitely a must to go over anything you can reach.

Ok, we need to get drag track times.

I will see what it cost to run a quarter mile up North.

I would think the 2019 with about 5 HP increase in power and a CT with 5% lower gearing (due to tire size) would be pretty fast (realitively)

I'd be unhappy without interchangeable drum brake wheels, Needing a dealer for some repairs - but mostly the insurmountable problem of PAYING what they cost. Not only can I not afford - I don't think they are WORTH IT. Buying used is much more cost effective.
Just because it's a 2019 you are NOT escaping OLD technology - just paying more for it - & making harder to repair.

OP asked if anyone with a 2019 had problems, not your opinion on the machine.

I suggest you just can it.

I now have almost 1700 miles on my 2019 Gear-Up, zero issues other than my fairing is still on backorder, and has been for almost 3 months. No buyers remorse! In fact, I'm about to head out on an afternoon ride with my favorite companion, Pugsley.

I have 1600 city stop and go miles on my 2019 cT. Trouble free except for a few loose fasteners and a MIL that turned out to be a pair of 02 sensor codes. This tripped after riding about 2 miles after the bike had been thoroughly soaked in a downpour.

It doesn't use oil, pulls up hills like a champ, and overall feels much more solid and peppy than my 11 patrol in every way.

As far as I'm aware there are no surprise issues specific to the 19s.

edit: forgot to mention that the neutral light has been 100% reliable and accurate. I'm not sure if they changed something or I just got lucky.

Just a note, I pretty much consistently get about 40 mpg (US) this is with the "old" Electrojet system so IMO 36 is "too low" - however they're not broken in properly until a few thousand km. Start to noticeably loosen up at about 2,500 km. And so on ...
