Ignition Switch Replacement

Post by Maineiac » Wed Jan 10, 2018 5:54 pm

I’ve found a source for a super easy, very cheap ignition switch replacement for the Ural. Ural of NE sells what I believe to be the exact same switch, just much more expensive.
Here’s Ural of NE’s switch:
http://www.uralne.com/ignition-switch-n ... ed-design/
Here’s the switch from Dime City for a fraction of the price:
https://www.dimecitycycles.com/vintage- ... 37600.html
Follow the wiring connections posted in the “how to” video on Ural of NE’s post under “Description” of the part.

I just wired this up, and it works a treat.

Good find :)
I don't find the how to for the wiring diagram. I see the video.

Great find! I ordered a switch for my '99 project bike and two cafe racer style mirrors: one to replace the broken one on the Mobile Chernobyl's hack and one for the '99.
I appreciate you sharing this.

Just scroll thru the video until the end, and it shows which wires go to what.

Was just looking for the same thing, and of course the video link is no longer posted on that page. Will hunt down the wiring schematic and post a copy here.

I'm also chiming into this incredibly helpful thread to ask... how do I get the darn thing out in the first place? I've tried my usual methods of "pulling harder" and "pulling harder while turning" already.

Maybe someone knows which cable goes with which... This is for a 2012 Ural T

We have the bike wiring coming as:

Image

Orange
Red
Yellow
Gray
Blue

Then the new ignition switch has the following setup:

Image

Brown/white
Brown
Red
Black (two connectors)

Here's the link that came with the printed instructions, but the image is black and white. Anyone has access to the dozuki system that could upload the picture here?

Thanks in advance and happy 2021!

Listing the year and model of your Ural in your signature line would be helpful.
