  1. If I still lived in Colorado I would just come by. Getting them registered here in the US is a Costly pain. Let me think about it. How long can you store them before someone can pick them up?

  11. I have the same thing on my M72. No Problems.
  12. Well, I got home today and started working on the bike again. Checked valves, plugs, etc... while I waited for a friend to bring over his compression tester. I checked the oil a few days ago when i started working on the bike again. (I been over seas working and before that a another person had it for monthes - long story) But I didn't think to check the transmission level, well, I did today and guess want? It was chocolate milk!!! while this other guy was theoretically working on my bike and keeping it inside his shop, my bike was outside setting for months in the rain!!! I guess water came in through the speedo cable over a long period. Thanks Again Buddy! Well, I drained it and was wondering how to clean it out? Also, I went ahead and kicked it over seeing if it would move something to help drain the mess and just what? My Compression issues are gone??? I don't understand nor totally believe that this is related but something happen? Anyway, Any ideas as to how best to clean the "Chocolate Milk" out of the transmission? I had what looked like baby poo in my M72 transmission. I stripped the whole thing apart and cleaned all the gears in gas and then ran them through the dishwasher. Obviously you don't want to do that, but I've heard of people using kerosene or diesel fuel for this purpose. Pour some in and operate the kicker to get the gears moving, drain, and repeat. Use a cheapo 30 wt after the kerosene, to clean out that, drain, and then use your 80-90 gear oil. Your compression issues may just have been that the bike was dry-sumped- all the oil had drained to the bottom, and there was not a good seal around the rings. If my bikes sit for a really long time I take a turkey baster and squirt a teaspoon or so of oil right in the plug hole before i try and start them. Kick it through a few times to get the oil coating the bore, then fire it up. Thanks for the Information. I did clean it out today with Brake Cleaner (infor from another site) and some Kerosense. Let it drain and air dry a bit, then filled it with oil. I will try to start it tomorrow to see what happens. I have located a Ural Repair guy (thanks to Gene) and I am going to let him go over the bike for me. I think at this point I need another pair of eyes to look things over.
