Re:Possibly Helpful Stuff- replacement brake pad spring from

Post by co_g30 » Sun May 16, 2010 6:02 pm

I recently damaged one of the springs that provide tension on the drum brake pads.

The nearby Ural dealers did not have them in stock and I was almost going to mail order them when a fellow Uralisti (thanks S854 aka Craig) said he'd heard that a BMW /5 used the same type of springs on their drum brakes.

I gave the BMW dealer a call and picked up a brake pad spring for a 1975 R75 motorcycle.

BMW p/n 34-21-1-457-091 and it was $2 cheaper than the Ural spring! Hah!

It was a bit shorter than the Ural spring but I think that's because the Ural spring that was undamaged had gotten stretched a bit from over 18km of usage. It went on just fine and in minutes my brake pads were back in place and wheel mounted. I've been riding on it for two days now with no issue.

Saw this list for the first time last night. I needed a set of fuel filters and wanted metal so I wrote down the listed NAPA #3027 part number. Forget it. #3027 is a full size car filter fitting 5/8 ID fuel line.

Final Drive.

The oil seal that keeps the final drive lubricant from getting past the splines into the brake area (and then down an overflow drain tube that exits approx 1.5" in front of the final drive drain bolt) is Napa P/N 17750, about $10. It's 60 x 45 x 8.

Re: Possibly Helpful Stuff - Keihin Carb Parts

Post by doug » Sun Nov 13, 2011 9:49 pm

The 2004 and 2006 Suzuki LT-A400 four wheelers (and some other models) use the same Keihin CVK32 carburetor that the late model Urals do. My local Suzuki/Yamaha/Kawasaki dealer actually had some parts for the carburetors on the shelf (the tiny little idle mixture screw O-ring for example :clap: ) and parts can be ordered on line at a discount if you can wait for delivery. Below is link to a parts fiche for the carburetor from Suzuki Parts Nation website, the dealers use the same parts fiche.

Re: Possibly Helpful Stuff - Tank balance line quick disconn

Post by doug » Fri Jan 06, 2012 4:14 pm

If you don't want to spend a fortune, McMaster Carr sells quick disconnect fittings that are probably the same ones that Raceway, Sprucegoose Aviation (?), etc. are reselling. I bought these and the parts have been in service on my rig for more than two years now with no leaks or problems. I am not where I can measure it at the moment but I'm pretty sure the balance (cross over) line is 1/4 ID and these are what I bought:

5012K85 1/4 ID hose barb plug with shutoff valve (male) $5.86 each
5012K82 1/4 ID hose barb socket with shutoff valve (female) $6.67 each

Acetal bodies, stainless latch, and Buna-N O-rings, are all resistant to gasoline and weather. Shipping was less than $5.
