  1. I kept the one from my 11 on my 15...Rox: http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com/38227/i/rox-speed-fx-pivoting-handlebar-risers-for-7-8-clamps Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I have a 2015 (officially a 2014) with only 2800kms: no probs so far with the FI... Only had to change the reserve light sender so far. Still hoping that one day we will have access to the software to plug a laptop... Or an Iphone!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Maybe petition Ural to get access to the software used by dealers on a laptop?? Not that I really see any use... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Funny enough the charcoal gas canister "fell off" my 15 GU and I discovered this: Who is buying who?? Soon a Ural with a big twin ? A Harley with a flat twin a la XA?? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Love a short and a long grey both XL. Thank you! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. $3500??? Any gold plated parts on them?? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I'll pass on the dog! What's the price of any of the scooters? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Nice!! Want!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Maybe it would be easier and faster to do something like this.... No reverse, no 2WD I am now dreaming of something like this with a Ural or Steib car attached to it
  10. Peut-être ils sont trop occupés pour répondre? Le mois de mai est plein de weekends et il est difficile de "caser" le travail dans le peu de temps qu'il reste!!
  11. Strange... I bought mine there and it arrived in less than a week...
  12. I got my K750 almost 2 years ago from Vostok with new pistons/valves, 12 volts (but still manual retard/points), had the gearbox redone by Ken and....I cannot ride the damn thing!!! My right arm is "screwed" and I am comfy only with 3 wheelers or very light bikes.... Tires are new, as is the battery, carbs have been redone... I am thinking $3,000.00 with a spare engine/gearbox (unknown!) or $2,500.00 for the bike only... What do you think???
  13. I am not sure that it can be considered, yet, a falling: the website is up for 24h... Guess $5,000.00 is a good start? They asked for dogs and sidecar on the BASE FB page and I sent a pic of my 2 Beagles.... They came on the Saturday at out place, interwied my wife and me and we shot on one of the hill... On Sunday we went up to Alice's (biker hang out) with some more sidecar and dogs...It was the only day of winter...so cold! The Beagles were perfect: at the bottom of the car when nothing was on, outside in the air when shooting... Saw some slomo: the ears in the wind shots are better than ay Pamela Andersson's in Bay watch!!
  14. I am so proud of my Beagles!!! (and my Gobi too!!!). :laugh:
  15. Where in the Wide World of Sports didja get them???? I just gotta have me some!!! Every good shop has them... You can order from here too: http://moto-boxer.com/product_info.php?cPath=24_34&products_id=41 http://www.ural-zentrale.de/product_info.php/language/en/info/p951_Fuel-tank-emblem-KMZ-copper---black.html They do exist in red too... Just Google Dnepr emblem
  16. Any relation with Vostok motors in CA (Sacramento, closed now)?
  17. Last time I bought one "NOS", "NEW", "REDONE " ( had the 3 descriptions thrown at me!!) what arrive from Ukraine was a POS with rest of dirty goo inside, gone bearing and even a broken tooth, but new bolts on the outside! Your best bet would be having yours restore by a pro... Mine was done by Ken Ulrich after my Ukrainian try!!!
  18. That was my prob... New Jawa are mainly 4 strokes with a couple of 2 smokes which's engines are the same than the one in the video (forks too!)... And if you look close the speedo, the chrome and a few parts do not look completely new... Wondering if it is not a new model "dressed" with older parts by someone in Russia??? Can see what looks like a parts fair in the beginning... There will be no way to squeeze an ES engine in an older frame... I sold my California a few months ago:
  19. I remember it as a Tcheq company, then Turc, Indian, Chinese but Russian now?? Love to have one!!
  20. Rumors are saying than a 700cc vertical twin is in testing in India... The V twins are "only" home made.
  21. Can imagine SS bolts in cheap pre oxided alloy cases the 1st time they are installed without proper anti-seize!!
