Russian Bike Nut

Russian Bike Nut (3/3)

  1. Thanks, Luca got one, not sure what it is off but it fits ok. Very useful to know that the speedos were compatible with so many bikes. Ride safe jim
  2. Hi, Vance i`m not sure if a Ural one would fit. As it happens, I think I might have found one,just waiting to hear from supplier. thanks for all your thoughts. Ride safe Jim
  3. Hi, Russ I agree but that would not work in Switzerland. It will have to be an original speedo from the factory. They are very particular, that`s why it`s taken me so long to get it registered, I`ve been trying for 3 years to get a number plate. thanks for the suggestion though.
  4. Hello there i am on the verge of getting my MT10-36 plated after a long struggle with the authorities. In short, everything else is in order, but the speedo is not working properly. Has anyone out there got a speedo for a Dnepr MT for sale? I would be grateful for any help. Thanks ride free jim
  5. Hi, Trinidad you could contact Vostok motors and ask him. this is not a recommendation or anything, I just know he is based in the UK and Ukraine and he might have some tips. Good luck jim
  6. Hi, fellas Although my Dnepr is running very well with delorto carb copies, I now have to mount K302 carbs or it will not pass inspection. I have an old set of K302's but i need the tubes that go between the carbs and the air filter of an MT10/36 i.e. Where the air filter is part of the gearbox. If anyone has a set they want to sell with the rubbers required please let me know. Thanks Ride safe Jim
  7. Hi, fellas Was just noticing that today is Ken Ulrich's 87th birthday. I see that he has not been online for a while and was wondering if anyone knows how he is. Ride safe Jim
  8. Aye, thanks, Dowey I'm not givin up yet, bike is runnin lovely, I'm determined to beat the system. All the best mucker
  9. Thanks, Propwash Yes, I took the alternator drive gear off, it made a big difference but still too loud. I really shouldn't be surprised as even BMW struggled to comply with 1980 noise level requirements on the air-cooled boxers. Ride safe
  10. Thanks, fellas yeah, Luca, I thought maybe you or Bear could find something.
  11. Hi, guys just a quick update. I have tried everything that I can think of. Got the bike running as quiet as I can and covered everything in soundproof foam including home made side panels and sidecar. Cork blocks between cylinder head fins and teflon washers on the rockers, retarded timing. Had a test run yesterday and measured sound level at 84dB, so I`m not going to take it for testing again. The bike is pretty quiet up til the revs get to about 3500 RPM then the noise level rises above 80dB and they test it at 4200 RPM, I don`t think I have a chance. The next step is to change the identity of the bike. What I need is a frame with a genuine set of papers. The bike needs to be a MT 10/36 or MT9 registered before 1980, so 1979 or older. If anyone has a frame for sale with papers, please let me know. ride safe jim
  12. Hi, jonny Dneprlover does not post on this forum anymore, I think you will find him on soviet steeds Ride safe Jim
  13. Hi, craft dude Just a couple of ideas, Have a look at your idle jet, see what size it is and try a smaller one. Try running with no air filter and see what it goes like. Try a hotter plug. Have a look at your enrichener circuit and make sure the bike isn't being made too rich all the time.( i.e. leaking or missing o-rings or just stuck 'on') And make sure your floats are floating! Just a couple of things I would look at. Ride safe Jim
  14. Hi, CD A manual for your bike is available from russianmotorcyclemanuals.co.uk They have one for the K750. I have no connection to the company but bought one for my Dnepr and find it very useful. Hope this helps. Ride safe Jim
  15. Feck sake Dowey Why d'ya not say that in the first place, ya could've saved me a few quid.
