  1. I was looking for something that would make installing the bearing races a little easier and provide less risk of damaging them, I came up with this ...... I bought a 33mm deep reach impact socket from ebay and worked the side wall thickness down on the belt sander until it would slide nicely into the hub https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1-2-Drive-33mm-DEEP-IMPACT-SOCKET-12-Point-Bi-Hex-Design-by-NEILSEN-TOOLS/253241034169?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 Works a treat ....
  2. A visual explanation that confirms the orientation of the spacer makes no difference at all as it's just a spacer with a dividng washer ,the collar I could see was was just the fold ...
  3. Thanks for the responses ... much appreciated It does appear that the spacer can go either way around During my research I came accross some instructive videos on Youtube ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZVgDG3oA04s https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zINkpA6vcEA This one gives a detailed description of the orientation of the various parts at about 4 minutes and 25 seconds in https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K7ukRQiE904 The audio is Russian but you can enable "ropey" subtitles in english by using this method ... On the lower bar on the right hand side of t
  4. Thanks Scott I had the same thoughts myself, couldn't think of a reason why one way around was better than another but thought it best to ask the experts 🙂
  5. Close up of the spacer with the shoulder highlighted by the red circle
  6. I have also seen a You Tube video showing it this way around https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SSQif7ueUvo&t=119s
  7. I have a question around the orientation of the spacer that fits between the bearings The spacer has a shoulder on one side and I keep seeing mention of it being important that it's installed the correct way around but no mention as to which way is the correct way The manual doesn't show a shoulder at all so not much help there and I've been searching the web but no luck with a conclusive find On the exellent "My Ural" site there is a picture that appears to show the shoulder nearest the threaded part of the spindle prior to insallation http://myural.com/Wheel Bearing Servi
  8. Some very interesting information in the feedback which is appreciated ... Thanks Gents The sovek unit turned out to be faulty, a replacement is on the way but in the meantime, the points with a jap condenser are working just fine I have ordered a Thorcap condenser (mentioned on SS) and will report back once I've had a chance to test it out
  9. Quick Update .... I got fed up trying to get the Sovek unit working so went back to the points set up After reading a few other posts I thought I would try fitting a condensor from a Jap bike, after doing that and cleaning the points after filing them flat she produced a nice bright spark ! Started her a few times at diferent temperatures and it all seems good so far I'll keep you all updated ! I think you may well be right about my Sovek unit Rod !
  10. This has always been a "hobby bike" to me, I have other bikes, so I've had a "take or leave it" attitude to it previously but want to get to the bottom of the issue as I really love the bike I've owned and maintained my own and friends bikes for more than 40 years now and have worked on most makes and models from "points and kickstart" technology through to the more modern machines but I've got a strange one with my 95 Ural 650 (Neval Soviet Knight) that's got me stumped The bike has always been a right mare to start and has become know amongst my friends as the "Ten Kick Cossack" as
  11. I have been wrestling with getting these carbs to fit the manifolds I have but the size diference between the manifold (35mm) and the BMW (43mm) rubber manifold is to great I need a set of manifolds that will fit the Ural 650 heads and be close enough to the 43mm diameter of the Bing carbs (64/32/302) Where did you get your manifolds from, they llok just the job ?
  12. I have measured the outer diameter of my Bing (64/32/302) carbs and they are 43mm http://i1231.photobucket.com/albums/ee512/z400d3/Bing%20Carbs%20for%20Ural/20140103_125208_zpsommkcb8c.jpg I have adaptors/manifolds for a set of Dellorto carbs which have an outer diameter of 35mm, so I suppose all I need is a set of rubbers to step up from 35mm to 43mm ? http://i1231.photobucket.com/albums/ee512/z400d3/Bing%20Carbs%20for%20Ural/20140103_125036_zpszt2cless.jpg The Bing actually fits over the adaptor/manifold, showing the size difference http://i1231.photobucket.com/albums/ee512/z400d3/
  13. I am looking to fit a set of Bing carbs (64/32/302) that I sourced from a scrap BMW to my 650 Ural so am finding this post an exellent source of info If I buy the manifolds mentioned (http://www.ebay.co.u...M-/140914241793), I will still need the rubber adaptors and a set of throttle and choke cables. If anyone knows of a supplier for all or any of these items please let me know
  14. I am looking for a replacement set of silencers for a 1997 Neval Soviet Knight They sweep up and back towards the swingarm slightly and attach to a twin bolt bracket just under the rear footrest If anyone has a decent pair or knows of a supplier in the UK or abroad please pass on the details I have attached a couple of pictures to give you an idea of their design... Also looking for a set of side panels for the same bike
  15. I did manage to get a set of seals on Ebay after, but as mine don't have any felt in them I wasn't sure where the felt went I stripped and cleaned the forks (previous owner had her standing outside for a few years) and they seemed to be pretty free but I did notice that when I refitted the seals everything seemed to stiffen up as if the seals had gone hard and were restricting things I thought they would sort themselves out after a little while on the raod but they are still stiff so I am going to have to fit the new ones Any advice on where the felt goes would be appreciated
