Hello again. I have a question about tow in and lean out on my bike. Are the examples and instructions in the Ural owners manual correct? I know my bike leans in and I feel that the car is straight which is totally off. This is a new set upon a new 2013 model.

I am not clear about your meaning from: "This is a new set upon a new 2013 model."

The instructions in the supplied manual should be correct for setting the leanOUT and toe in.
If your bike is leaning toward the sidecar, it definitely requires adjustment for proper handling.

A new Ural from a qualified dealer should be adjusted properly, unless it was assemble improperly.
If a dealer delivered it to you this way, they should fix it.  And you should let IMWA's home office know about this problem, so they can get the dealer back on track.  All puns intended.

Thank you guys. Just as I expected. Our roads a
here are relatively flat so Ill go by the manual. I purchased the bike
about two months ago from dealer in Texas. It is new but it is a 2013. It had about 5kms on it. I think the set up was wrong from the start so Im calling them tomorrow. I can take care of the adjustment myself. I live in eastern NC so I have no local dealer. No problem though. Thank to you guys and the net I am confidant that I can maintain it.

I can't use those florescent tubes, because the light blinds me during the set up procedure...
