That made me chuckle, Mike.Where the hell did I go wrong?
Rob: THANK YOU for that avalanche o' advice! Much appreciated. As for nicknames, while 'Rusty' is definitely appropriate, I want to try to tie in the bike's Russkie heritage. I'm sure we'll come up with something. 'Til inspiration strikes, I guess I'll just refer to it as The RPOC.
I did. He was quite eager to sell.the other day you said the guy wanted $1200,hope you chiseled him down some !
I'll keep you posted. In fact, this thread could end up being my "RPOC tear-down and build-up" thread. I was gonna try to start it today, but I chose to "play hooky" and rode with two other Ural riders, one a "new" rider. Now I just feel like poking at the RPOC with a stick.let us know when or if you fire it up, boy would that be a plus
Oh, hey, check out these amazing tools that came with the bike: I pulled the valve cover to both check valve clearances and just generally see what's going on in there.
Looks like oil changes weren't really a priority. Lots of sediment.
While I had the valve cover off, I decided to see what the Cummins Beige would look like in the, uh, 'flesh-tone'.
I like it!
