Please....Let Us Know Back!!!

Post by DaveO » Mon Aug 09, 2010 10:04 am

Sometimes, assorted advice on a mechanical problem is given to a poster....only to never hear back from them on which advice, solution, or combination thereof actually solved the dilemma...We would all certainly love to hear back on what worked for you, so that others may benefit from the experience :) :) :)

So Please, Let us know back!

Thanks a bunch!

Guilty as charged. I posted a few weeks ago about a valve issue, got it resolved (had Mike at Mike's Urals in TN take a look at it to double-check me), immediatley had to leave town, got back, and hit the road for what was supposed to be a three day ride with a BMW buddy from Atlanta. Three weeks and 4,000 km later, I'm finally back in Alabama. Great ride through N. GA, NC, TN, VA, W VA, MD, PA, and back. Ride report to follow tonight after loosening up with pork and beer.

Anyway, as a newby, I'm always appreciative of the knowledge and camaraderie on the boards.

I've dealt w/ this on other forums also and all I can say is... If you ask for advice please at least have the courtesy to post back if it solved your problem or not. If you don't you are basically a shithead and you might not get any help later on. Of course there are some people who do this all the time, keep posting their problem but never tried any of the offered solutions, etc. TROLLS :x
Some people take quite a bit of their time to answer questions (FOR FREE) and make your problem THEIR PROBLEM. The least you can do is tell them & the rest of the lurkers if the problem was fixed or not. Thanks. :)

its a problem all over the BBS system, i am on 3 bike forums and one car forum. you will get some one that does not know how to use the search, then ask a bunch of questions. they never let you know what fixed it. its always good to do a update. even if its a month or two later.

I can understand Bounty Hunters frustration.Most of the guys here get into trying to supply good reliable solutions to problems posted and it really is just being curtious to write a reply telling everyone that the fix worked or sometimes didn't work.It costs a lot less time than what the person who gave out the advise spent clearly explaining the possible repair procedure.

Agreed - it's invaluable feedback for someone who comes in with a problem and tries searching for a solution on their own instead of asking straight away. Saves everyone a lot of hassle.

While it is not unique problem for a Ural forum. I think it is far more prevalent on a Ural forum since the Ural community for years has relyed on owner to owner assistance due to a soft dealer network for technical assistance.

Just a quick note on reverse shifter installation. The gas tank does NOT have to be removed for easy installation. Just remove two front tank bolts and lift the tank up as far as it will go....about 2-3 inches. Hold the tank up in place with a block of wood. For more wiggle room unbolt front of seat.
Easy project :D

Happy Motoring.

Being a newbe, I have yet to offend (yet). Rest assured though, your help id GREATLY appreciated. I have decided to repair/rebuild my clutch because of SS support. So if I am slow to respond, it will be due to time needed to incorporate the solutions. Once again, thanks in advance.

Totally agree with this thread and I believe that I do follow up as others can learn as I have from this too valuable Forum. Wonder what we would be doing without it?

This a common problem. I've been involved in search and rescue at various times. It is frustrating when we get no feed back; was the person, aircraft, or whatever found? Oh, Where? Search called off? Why? SSDD. :cheers:
