    1st car 1951 Henry J 1st bike 1968 Suzuki 250cc X-6 Hustler Bought a Ural because my wife's bad back couldn't abide the 79 Honda CBX's rough ride. Now she has fallen asleep in the hack twice, so it must be better. By the way I really enjoy the bike too.
  1. I am so glad you are back. I missed you.
  2. Dowey, I did this same swap on my 14 just for grins. I didn't know if I would like it but I love it. It is much easier to get into reverse quickly and it saved my bacon once when a left turning car cut into my lane at a stoplight. Also my tranny has over 46,000 km on it now and sometimes when I shifted to neutral at a light, the old shifter would drop slightly and prevent me shifting to first. The heel-toe shifter doesn't do that. The only downside is that the shifter install is touchy about which notch you use when you install. Rotate too much to the rear and you can't get to the toe ped
  3. Yes Vance it is cancelled. DneprTim announced it June 2nd on Soviet Steeds.
  4. Welcome Spearman, I am not in the market but wanted to give you a little hint. You will have much more interest if you add pictures. For maximum exposure, you might want to also use Soviet Steeds, if you haven't already. Some will be leery of someone who is selling something in their first post and now is a rough time to check something out, so best of luck.
  5. Isn't it great. Now when I ride to the store for groceries in 32 degree weather, that is the sane part and going to the store is the crazy action.
  6. I have a $10 adjustable tension throttle lock that I like. https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B07NSM5DYP/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  7. Merry Christmas to all. May the coming New year be your best yet.
  8. If your phone has GPS, several free apps will give MPH including Google Maps.
  9. Marco, The only thing that comes to mind is to check the fuel flow rate to both carbs. I think I remember it should be 100 cc/min, but I am not positive. Also check the gas tank vent line.
  10. Hi Tim, Welcome to the forum. I have zero information on the bike but for the pictures click on the "More Options" in the lower right corner of the reply box. This will get you to the advanced features. Then use the "Chose File" button in the lower left corner. Be sure to resize your pictures before trying to attach them. They need to be below 1 megapixel to attach them and it looks like you can only attach 1 megapixel total to each message. I usually make mine between 100K and 400K pixels. Nick
  11. I had the Ural windshield on my 06 and a Slipstreamer Turbo on my 14 and I liked both. I like the fact that the Turbo is completely clear so I can see better but the Ural gave more winter protection. Downsides: I had to make new bottom brackets for the Turbo out of 1" X 3/16" strap. The originals broke after 3 years. I had to take the turbo decal off the screen. People kept asking if my Ural was turboed. Getting the Ural screen off and on to work on the wiring rats nest inside the headlight, was a pain. Dan Muhs (Burt1713) on Soviet Steeds is making a dandy quick disconnect for the U
  12. I am sorry you have hit a bureau wall. The newer Urals have cats installed in a short section of downpipe. I am not sure of the year but I think since 2013, they are bulged and are apparent. The cats on my 06 looked like a short section of regular exhaust pipe. The early ones had a bad habit of clogging so many were removed. Some people still remove them . If no one here can help, post on Soviet Steeds. I'll bet someone has cats just laying around. If not try a motorcycle junkyard like Pinwall Motorcycle Parts in Massilion, Ohio. I mention them because they seem to always have a few Ur
  13. Just to be safe, check you sidecar wheel for free turning. I had a brake drag for short while when my M70 was new. Also if you have two 8 foot long straight edges, check the alignment of the sidecar. I use two pieces of 1 inch EMT from the electrical section of Lowe's.
  14. Luckily I was only 20 miles from home. As I had to be somewhere soon, I found a wrench in the kit that was about the same thickness as the disc. I zip tied the wrench in the caliper and eased home on the spare with only 2 wheel brakes. If I had more time, I would have used my spare tube instead.
