along with some 15/40 and some wynns gearbox "improver" stuff(i like Wynns)....and some of this flake graphite!....
Better....in fairness I am using it more now , and that could help...but it is markedly better...almost ok!
will continue till it is "very good"...but i am sure it isnt technique, as i have tried all of that and am not a "newbie"

Graphite: Sooner or later you will curse the day you put graphite in the crank case: when a little oil get past the rings, the graphite will in an instant foul the plugs, graphite is an excellant conductor of electricity. Hence, it is used in compressed form for gen and alt brushes. The only cure is to sandblast very carefully each plug, until they foul again.
You will curse your luck on a mountain road , when a hard working engine starts leaking a small amount of oil onto the clutch, which will promptly slip like mad........after you shut it off, you will find it difficult to kick start the engine, as the clutch will slip. If you are lucky to have an E start keep going......That is until you are sailing down a steep hill and apply the rear brake, the graphite that make the gears so smooth back there, will have leaked just enough oil and graphite back on the rear brake shoes and drums. That will lead you to the fact that you can stop faster, if you wave your hat! That was your lucky day, as you went off a cliff and landed in a lake that was deep enough, to cause you to cease sweating, Two days later the tow truck arrieves, the engine was reving up nicely in mid-air, due to your death grip on the bars, as it hit the water, it swallowed enough water to destroy the innards of your trusty Ural, you spend much green, to rebuild the engine, also a quicky wash and wear to the rear brake, but graphite is a metal that will find it's way in to the grain of the metal in the rear brake....it stills slips like mand you found that out when you just missed a little old lady in a cross walk, she "ished" her panties, the cop saw it all and doesen't believe you, you have a date in traffic court, Even your wife does not believe you .....Some where in all this you the joy of Uraling has gone south...RATS RATS RATS........Ken
Of course you can look for an absolutly leak proof Ural
