So I am a part of a subculture that likes to dress up in dirty costumes, pretend that it's the end of the world and have adult fun out in the desert. Generally referred to as Wastelanding, it is a really fun hobby as you meet some incredible people and have some amazing experiences. I also use it to help support myself as I am a self employed costume maker. There are a few post-apocalyptic (PA) events around, the biggest and well known is Wasteland Weekend, with around 5,000 attendees and can be describes as Mad Max Burning Man. The event pictured here is called Detonation and is held on an area of private land called Uranium Springs out in the Painted Desert east of Holbrook, Arizona (it's on Google Maps). It's a much smaller event at around 400 attendees, but it's held on private land so people can build permanent structures there. Vehicles are a big part of PA scene and this was the first time I was able to take my Dnepr MT16 out to an event. I put so much work and stress into the past two months trying to get the motorcycle to work in time and with the help from this forum I was immensely proud of myself that I could make it running to take it out. I had so much fun romping around the desert there, taking my friends around on rides and seeing how many people I could pile onto the thing. With the addition of the little Swiss trailer that motorcycle came with, I managed to turn it into a little troop carrier and got 8+ people on it. There's still a lot of work to do on the motorcycle but I am so happy that I got to use it there. Here are a bunch of photos of the motorcycle at the event with some more on the way! ~Pat.
My dear comrades, For the victory of the socialism and for the greater good of the working class I have begun to work at the new project: KMZ K750 first model with the short frame. I have buyed this bike as parts, ones I had the frame, after that the sidecar, the engine, I have found a fork and a gearbox, I had the luck to find at a very good price two new Dnepr complete wheels and I am still buying... The bike has no document but I estimate the production year of the frame is from the '50s. I have started as always with the engine, I have picked a good engine housing with no cracks or threads problems:
Comrades, I have succed to build an electronic ignition with good quality parts. I was inspired by the electronic ignition from BMW R65, sensor hall and CDI, mounted on parts designed by me: Parts mounted: This was the first test, just to test the functionality of the selected parts: After that the real tests: 1. 2. 3. 4. Soon, it will be ready for sale and you will forget about the ignition problems!
ElectroIgnition M103 Ignition Kit for Ural 650 OHV engines ElectroIgnition M103 is a contactless electronic ignition kit for Ural 650 OHV engines using good quality parts for better performance and reliability. This ignition kit eliminate completely the old parts of the original Russian ignition and requires to install some parts outside the engine and it works only for the motorcycles with 12 Volts electric system. The M103 ignition kit replaces the PM-301/PM-302/PM-302A ignitions and it works at all Ural 650 engines with this type of ignition points called also the "mixing bowl of doom". The ignition kit type M103 is composed by the following parts: 1. Plate with Hall sensor and plate signal trigger with bolt 2. Ignition module with wires (soldered connectors) 3. Ignition coil 4. Cable ignition Beru (1 meter) 5. NGK sparkplugs 6. Bolts (inbus 5mm) for plate fixation 7. Various conectors for the wires: Installation and setup 1. Mount the plate sensor using the three Allen 5mm bolts (inbus bolts), for beginning the bolts should be in the centre of the oval holes like is shown in the picture below: 2. Before mounting the plate trigger signal you have to align the pistons by slowly turning the engine until you reach the first mark on the flywheel wich is the maximum advance timing point, this sign is shortly before the Top Dead Center sign (TDC). 3. After aligning the pistons in the maximum advance point sign you can mount the the plate trigger signal using the 6mm hex bolt and tighten the plate trigger with the nut. The plate trigger signal has to be in the position showed below with the painted part in line with the sensor ignition. 4. After this operation you can start the engine and procede to the final settings by moving the plate sensor in order to give more timing advance or to reduce the timing advance. 5. The plate trigger signal has to be mounted with an equal space between the Hall sensor elements, in order to do that you can use some 6mm washer like in the image below: If necessary you can slightly bend the plate trigger sensor for a better adjustment. 6. DO NOT MOUNT the ignition coil and the ignition module inside of the ignition engine compartment, the excessive heat and vibrations will damage the ignition coil and the ignition module. In fact these are the main reasons for the rapid breakdown and failure of the Russian ignition parts. The recommended place to install the ignition module and the ignition coil is on the frame under the tank. 7. Wiring conections: in the box of the ignition kit there is a printed electric schema. Also, below are described the conections between the parts from the ignition kit: a. Green/yellow wire from the ignition module must be connected at the ignition coil at the connector 1 (inscripted on the coil). b. Black wire from the ignition module must be connected at minus (ground). c. Red wire from the ignition module must be connected at the ignition switch in order to start and stop the engine from the ignition switch. Also the ignition coil positive connector 15 (inscripted on the coil) must be connected at the ignition switch. d. Blue wire from the ignition module (input +) must be connected with the red wire from the Hall sensor. e. Yellow wire from the ignition module (input -) must be connected with the green wire from the Hall sensor. f. The cooling plate from the ignition module must be connected to minus (ground) directly by bolts or if it is not possible by a wire with bolt. PRICE: 137$, only by PayPal. Note: ElectroIgnition it is not a company, it is my personal "brand" for this ignition kit wich is designed and realised by me from various aftermarket spareparts (JMP, Mobiletron NGK, Beru). However, if you buy this product you will benefit for all the conditions like you are buying from a company (warranty, technical support). Warranty is offered only if the ignition kit is mounted on the bike by specialised personnel. Every ignition kit is tested before selling on the engine for full functionality.
