  1. I think this is what you want. Select :aux fuel tank" on the left side of the page http://www.uralhowto.org/index.php/site/install/
  2. What is the hole in the lower right of the windscreen for?
  3. I have the GearUP with camo tonneau cover. What we did was install the tonneau. and then the windshield. Measure very carefully where the windshield posts would come thru the tonneau. Use the sewing machine to make a 1 inch button hole where the posts are. Remove the windshield and poke the posts down thru the button holes. Remount the windshield. When riding with the monkey, just roll up the tonneau over the windshield cross brace thing.
  4. send e mail to emissary@imz-ural.com the first order got me brochures, cards, and decal. the second order only got me the brochures and cards. Too cheap to send me another decal I guess.
  5. I don't have the take off shake on my 2006 GearUP(1900 km) but it does stink up the double garage. And grunts, groans, moans, clicks, clunks, and whines. Reminds me of my 1st wife... But the other sidecar outfit sits in the garage covered with cob webs. The GearUP is my ride of choice now. It just gets better and better.
  6. Thanks Charlie, The pictures and stories about the WW2 battles are the most interesting to me. Very interesting site. Thanks for posting the link
  7. But I LIKE shiny things! EWWWWWWWW! Took my relatively clean GearUp out Saturday afternoon and applied a thick coating of mud while at WOT. A ride around Minneapolis on Sunday seemed to attract at least 25% more UDF. Not so sure it was a good idea. And the monkey ain't happy about it either. Course, she likes Armorall on the tires of her car also :thumbsup!:
  8. Temps drop so quickly when you roll off the throttle, not to mention bring the bike to a stop and get out your laser or infra-red temp gun, there is no way you can tell what HAPPENNED, temp wise, while you were running down the road. Real time temps are what's importrant (IMHO), not post run stationary temps. But hey, if that's your thing....go for it. A "hunnid bucks" would be much beter spent on a CHT set up though, if you want accurate tuning info, or engine protection info..... Just yesterday, I ordered the CHT gauge, sensors, and handlebar pod for it. Cost me a "hunnid" and 6 bucks. :thumbsup!: And it has already shipped. Apparently good service from the source quoted in the first post of this thread. Well, I received the CHT setup on Friday, 3 day delivery from Aircraft Spruce. The install was easy enough. I mounted the gauge on the left side of the handlebars just to the left of the riser. The hardware furnished with the gauge pod was not quite long enough so a quick trip to Ace Hardware netted 2 bolts a little longer than furnished. The sensors have a loop which goes under the sparkplugs. The sensor wires are 4 feet long and had to be coiled up under the tank to shorten them up. The Gauge itself has a short pigtail lead that marries up with the sensor leads. I was in a hurry so the install looks a little sloppy. I will clean that up this winter while I ride out the typical Minnesota cold. A long ride on Sunday at 55 mph, 70 deg F, 45% humidity on my completely stock 2006 Gearup yielded CHT of 400 deg F left and right cylinders. The gauge was a little distracting as I kept wanting to watch the needles move up and down as I drove. Actually, they didn't appear to move much at all. Gauge does look pretty nifty although I will be painting the gauge pod (black now) green camo later on.
  9. seaplane grommet $.18 each http://www.aircraftspruce.com/menus/search.php
  10. Got married in Murphy NC 46 years ago(first wife) :thumbsup!: Eloped on the greyhound bus from Memphis, Tenn while I was in Navy Electronics School. BIG MISTAKE... But I'm over it now. It was a very scenic place, however.
  11. I have the Raceway tank shifter. Never use the foot lever anymore. The hand shifting works fine for me. :thumbsup!:
  12. My sympathy to the family of a brother officer. I wore the blue suit for 25 years.

  14. I grew up in Eau Claire and you know what I miss? Laefsa bread (and I'm probably slaughtering the spelling) those wonderful Scandenavian potato "tortillas" for lack of a better expression. Warmed in the oven and spilling with melted butter (how we had 'em) YUMMMMM!! Also have fond memories of a smorgasboard near our house which was lines with little cottages and animated trolls and gnomes...bizarre. Chris Thats lefse http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lefse and I bet the restaurant was the "Jolly Troll"
  15. :flameon: OW!!! Sounds like an urban legend but.. something to think about
  16. OR he could go ahead and get his pilot license. Accumulate some flight hours(a bunch) and go to work for a company like I work for. We have a company jet-Cessna Citation. And we have our own flight crew. The company plane is used for upper management transportation. We have tried to hire the best. Our flight crew is paid VERY well. They basicly enjoy executive privileges without the executive headaches. How about a week in Aspen. Play golf in Palm Springs. A long weekend at Marco island. And I get to go along a lot of the time but they make me play stewardess. And hands off the beer for me :thumbsup!:
  17. I recal that several years ago, there was an outfit called Sovietski that put out a catalog of soviet products; glass ware, shawls, wood carvings, military collectibles. They also sold Urals, I believe, with some decals on them, including one that said "#4 of 100' etc. Might that be the origin of the decal?
  18. BUT there is a limit on how many tows per year you can receive. Over the limit, and you get put on some kind of secret probation. At least that's the way I read it on the internet.
  19. fascinating photos thanks for posting the link :unsure2:
  20. I moved from a 4 bedroom home with 4 garages, a small barn, and an acre of land. Sold just about all my stuff. Bought a two bedroom/2 garage townhouse. 13 years later, I have once again accumulated so much stuff...
  21. Well, that looks like some type of military storage tank in the background(I was Navy 1961-1968). So, I'll say it. Thanks for your SERVICE!!! All present and previous military deserve our thanks. And you can ride three when you return to the USA.
