  1. Will do, Bill! Quite fancy a trip to Norge one of these days... Dub
  2. After six years of Dnepr ownership I've thrown in the towel. Too much work, too little spare time and a feeling that I lost the bug finally took its toll. My two Dneprs just got hauled away on a trailer by a very nice Dutchman and his wife. Fidelma and the Fire Engine are gone. My garage now has what it has not had for quite some time.... space for a car. As I won't be getting another hack for the foreseeable future (putting the proceeds of the bikes towards a new car, as my old one just died) I'd like to thank everyone here that has contributed to my time as an owner of one of the most fun bikes I've had the pleasure to own. Ride safe, be proud, drink heartily!
  3. Sorry to hear this, Ken. At least he died doing something he loved. Dub
  4. I've just been able to get my out of print fiction republished via the Amazon Kindle Store. Mostly hardboiled detective stories and one historical novel based on the Irish Civil War. But - you must have either a Kindle, or the free Kindle software on your PC , iPhone, iPad or whatever to be able to read the books... Dub's Kindle Store Dub
  5. I've also attached a pic of my old Type I EI unit... is this what you have? Maybe if you shared some pics....
  6. Are you using a Ural regulator - (33702) - the shiny one instead of the PP330 black unit? See attached electric schematic - it has both variants... I changed from a PP330 to the shiny 33.3702 and yes the wiring is not the same... Hope this helps...
  7. We're not sure what we're doing yet to be honest. We've been talking about heading down towards the South East coast for a few days before the wifey goes back to work in a few weeks. Let me know exactly when you would be able to come and I'll try to force to missus into making a decision as to what we are planning to do... Skål! Dub
  8. My MT-11 does the same thing, has for four years and it rides perfectly. It's not a problem until you are stuck with an imploded tranny ;)
  9. Hey Bill - don't forget I have a full MT-11 of parts.... Special price, if you are interested. ;)
  10. Item number: 290435910687 http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...%3D1&_rdc=1 Or http://www.blocket.se/halland/Dnepr_MT_11_...m?ca=15&w=3 Dub
  11. It is.... http://www.henriksson.ee/?p=13 Click the 'English' flag in the top right hand corner... Dub
  12. I've been through a few and rebuilt one or two as well, with the help of SB... If you are having a 'bad earth day' you might want to run a secondary earth cable to the instrument binnacle, as on the Dnepr the earth goes via steering head bearings - which might not be the best... Another SB trick. Also - move the horn someplace else - like up beside the headlight - it's louder and it won't ground out on anything. Also - check that you have the right 15/16amp fuses.... You could also try insulating the inside of the binnacle with plastic - sometimes the wires touch the binnacle and short things out.... use a bit of thick plastic sheeting - another SB trick I've had LOTS of trouble with the kill switches on my switchgear melting - still haven't solved it - but I think its an earth issue on the bars. Hope this helps! Dub :flameon:
  13. Try a slightly thicker gasket material. :flameon: Dub
  14. A mate of mine in TX gave me these links and info... http://www.cheaperthandirt.com http://www.dixiegunworks.com is another. Cheaper than dirt is in TX. DGW is in Tennessee.
  15. The float is probably getting snagged on the gasket material. you need to reassemble very carefully - preferably with the carb off the bike. When you take your K68s apart use a 10mm wrench to remove the chokes and spray them liberally with WD-40 and try to 'set them free'. I'm sure they'll be fine. Just don't go pulling too hard 'cos those wee black plastic tops are crapola - they break really fast! Dub
  16. http://www.blocket.se/halland/Dnepr_MT_11_...m?ca=15&w=3 She's looking nice in the sunshine.... I have not time for my beloved Fidelma and feel like I'm badly neglecting her. Of course if I can't sell her and the spare bike I'll not be completely devastated Dub
  17. http://www.musketeer.ch/blackpowder/recipe.html Why don't you make your own black powder? I did this as a schoolkid for laughs :) Blew up a wall once :) Never again!!!! Dub
  18. There is no vacuum hose hook-up tube on these carbs - that's an overflow tube for excess petrol if your float is stuck. Sounds like a stuck float. Take the carb off and clean it. Make sure the gasket on the floatbowl isn't interfering with the float. Clean the jets. Reassemble, and see if it's still leaking. The black knob is the enrichner or choke - never run the bike for more than a few minutes with this pulled up (on), and preferably not while riding it. Use the throttle to warm her up - not the choke, once you have her started. Disassemble if your choke is stuck and have a look at it. Dub
  19. So you replaced the plug that wasn't 'firing' properly? And all your wires are fine... Mystery...
  20. I've replaced my switchgear for the second or third time now. Every time I do (and it was the reason for changing it the first time) the wires to my kill switch melt in a puff of blue/grey smoke. I'm assuming that I have a bad earth at the switchgear (my bars are painted black) - or could it me something else entirely? I'm seriously thinking of buying an R80 set of bars and switches and risers and fitting them instead.... Any other bright ideas? I got her running again by bypassing the kill switch completely. Not ideal, I know.... Dub
  21. If they are K63T forget it. I think they are crapola. However many people here swear by the K65 carbs when properly set up. I'm using Pekar K68 carbs that you can get off eBay. Easy to set up, but you'll need to adjust fairly frequently, in my experience. Dub
  22. Had one of those go on me and had to adjust the idle to high to get home in third gear :) Also drove home without the clutch once - and that was without the Dneprglide bolt in place. Everything is possible with these bikes. Including mysterious electrical faults, sudden death and miles and miles of smiles... These days I carry a spare throttle assembly in my ammo can... and a few cables....then everything is good! Replacing the switchgear on my Dnepr just now. Everytime I get new switch gear (this is the second or third time I think) I spend ages figuring out which wire goes where, as they are different colours each time I get them and I don't have the old block connectors on the bike anymore. That's the main issue with rewiring your bike and using an older headlight shell. Still worth it though for the looks :) Dub
  23. They look really well made. Nice work! You should consider doing other colours too! Dub
  24. No picture attached, mate. Try again... Dub
  25. Which Yamaha petcock? And are you on an old Ural/Dnepr or a new Ural? Dub
