  1. Can you give me some details? How many kms on it? Who did service? thanks E
  2. Boo hooo, sold. My wife cried when I told her it was sold.
  3. WOW Stray dog!! Very cool to see Ural rentals!!. I wish I would have known prior to my buying a rig to try one out!! Good luck on the adventure.
  4. bumpski-- offers? Willing to assist with delivery to SW?
  5. Here are pics as per request. More close-ups can be sent via email if you wish. This also shows the National Cycle Plexi 2 windshield. It is easily removable. Thanks E
  6. Sorry Uraldog, I am not planning on seperating any of the stuff right now. I am not giving up on Urals, my wife won't have it. I am having to make decisions about transportation and traveling is all. It really is a pleasure to drive since getting the rig back.
  7. 2006 Ural Patrol 2WD Own an essentially new Ural at a used bike purchase price!! Forest Green with solo tractor seat 26,000 km original mileage <500 km on new engine 750 cc motor- complete factory rebuild under warranty (Nov 2007) with new alternator, new clutch, new transmission with German Herzog gear upgrades, new cylinder heads and header pipes. K&N air filter with re-jetting. All wheel bearing were replaced with Timkin tapered roller bearings except for most recent new tire. Rich Maund gel tractor seat cover and leather tool roll. Trunk lock and chrome Triumph mirrors. Also includes new spare rear rim and spare Mikuni carb intakes, spare Tonneau cover, lap robe, & stock bench seat. There are additional Halogen lights on the sidecar. Condition: The rig was ridden during a full Wisconsin winter and the finish shows some wear and minimal corrosion. The factory maintenance schedule was strictly adhered to with all fluid changes completed every 3000 km. Mechanically the bike is in good shape and runs well, especially after re-build due to a bad crank. Asking $8500.00 – currently located in Tucson, AZ May be willing to negotiate shipping/delivery
  8. You dudes are so smart. I pulled the LEDS and put incandescent lights back in and it works fine. Now I have to replace my headlight as the bright was out and the speedo lights were out. I have a new alternator and I hope that it has not introduced some new gremlins, various electrical anomylies.
  9. Grrr, I just got new 1156 Britelites from Kevin Blume. I put them in all the turn signals, now they will turn on but not flash> Did I blow the relay or is this a regular problem with the LEDs?
  10. Now that you say that I do recall that they had little if any descriptive info on the websites. I will gladly give you my general measures if you promise not to laugh!! My inseam is 33"; my waist size is 34" (always tough to find pants when you are wider then you are tall, but I guess I have to thank my mothers side of the family for that); my chest size is 44"; and my height is 5'8" tall. I bought myself a large and it was generously cut. I bought my Dad an extra large and then inherited his suit after mine became all filled with fish guts from a little incident I had when I drove the Ural through the ice into a fish kill. The extra large still worked but I had a diaper butt as it was pretty large. I liked it a little big so I could put more gear under if I needed to. Hope that helps. E
  11. I got my lap robe from Holopaw Gene. I will check into Langlits (unless Rich is goging to make one up!! hint, hint). The one from Gene is good, but I would like a little insulation from me and a cut out so it goes around me a bit better and doesn't flap all around. Ditto on the hard mounts, they suck and I had much problems with bad rubbers. No problems since Mikuni intake rubbers. Kermi, you must be one of the bazillion exceptions..... PS, in addition to my most excellent lap robe, the best (and cheapest) suit I found for the buck was the Israeli Hermonit suit. It isn't perfectly waterproof, but man it was so warm and really was nice for getting in and out of. I traded in my Aerostitch Roadcrafter suit thinking that would be a good way for warmth....it sucked and froze my nuggies off. The Hermonit was awesome!! http://www.israelmilitary.com/padded-cover...monit-p-24.html http://www.israeli-forces.com/cgi-local/pr...ct=show_product http://www.zahal.org/gear/p2.htm I rode my Ural all winter in Wisconsin last year as my only ride and I was required to ride between 50-100 miles per day.
  12. My wife bought me a sidecar rig....I knew I married a good one..always better choice 2nd time around....I digress She would not give the check to the dealer until I was signed up for the STEP course, which is through Evergreen (MSF doesn't do sidecar or trike course.) Being a MSF instructor, what amazed me was how different the neccessary skills are between 2wheelers and 3 wheelers. Take the class it will help you save your life or being big hurted!! I will admit I had a hard time remembering to put my feet down when I got back on the 2 wheeler....
