When dating a Russian bike go easy. Start with an oil change.  From there, you could replace her air filter. That should relax her enough to allow you to adjust her valves. She will appreciate a good cleaning. Play your cards right and she won't embarrass you at a car and bike show by refusing to start. And never, ever leave a brochure laying around the garage with new Harley Davidson models pictured.

Trying to find out the model and year of a Dnepr with 24192 stamped into left shock tower.  New to this and have had trouble navigating through the conflicting information out there.  Anything you could tell me would be very helpful, thanks.
