February Weather hiccup

At Double Tollgate we spotted another Ural, an olive drab Patrol, turning to head towards Stephens City. That's the first time I've encountered another Ural around here.

'Glad to hear you got out on your Ural, and that it cooperated nicely! I hope this is an indication of good things ahead for you two, this year.
We've had our Ural out and about a bit last week, after the snows melted. Both bikes fire right up and run just fine. Although the Wolf needs some electrical trouble shooting to get the head light to stay on! 'Should take me just a few minutes to diagnose and fix.
Now that I've got my Oregon drivers license, I can get both bikes registered in this state. That's coming soon, assuming the snows don't return. Of course, that's entirely possible...

It was the ubiquitous undocumented Ural inline fuse! These are not shown on the wiring schematics, at least for my years of Urals ('98, '03, & '07)
Most Urals have those hiding in the headlight bucket, but the Wolf has too small a bucket for anything other than the light. I found the fuse back by the battery, behind the frame bar and under the seat. Not obviously visible. Of course I had to drain and remove the gas tank to see this.
The screw-housing was slightly loose, preventing full contact with the Russian version of the VW-style fuse inside. I may replace both the fuse and the housing, just to increase reliability. Or not.
