thanks, Van haven't had a issue on my 2016 GU, but always nice to know whats going on just in case,(no pun intended), for those who have experienced the problem this will certainly help. :cheers:

gobium, your videos are great, and easy to understand your a good teacher. I have personally only used you video on how to adjust the neutral light switch which worked perfect ,(i love my light use all the time). Hope all this admiration and praise doesn't make you toss yesterdays Turkey. :bow: :boogie: :cheers:

Video is not just for newbies- I never knew I could go directly from first gear into reverse gear without needing to press on the shift lever (1st-2nd) at the same time.

Van,

Once spring is back in place, transmission in neutral, adjust neutral switch screw so the light just comes on? No further in?

Screwing switch in too far causes this problem?

My neutral light is on in 1st, N, and Reverse. I think my little tab is out of place...I’m about to set my Ural ablaze

Using this method: I'm in first gear, engine running, clutch disengaged...how much pressure has to be applied to the reverse lever to get the gearbox to go into neutral, and then again into reverse l?
Is the repositioning of the reverse lever to 10 o'clock just to allow the foot to be used with greater pressure?

Howdy.
The Reverse lever position at 10 o'clock is to step on using the right heel.
On pressure, every ural is different.
Newer more pressure. Older less. You have to feel it.

Thanks, I've been a little hesitant as it sounds abnormal, but I trust you two and I'll adopt the method.
