650cc engine still in it?
THAT might be "entertaining."

Russ,
As you know, I have 10 Dneprs.. A 650 Ural does not scare me in the least..  She fails, I fix...Pretty simple.  I am spoiled by the simplicity of the KMZ engine internals.

Any hints from your 650 days of what spares I should stock?  Worst case, I re-motor to a 750 or a "god forbid" KMZ power plant that we have here..
I have heard of crank issues and such . (engine lugging?)
thanks

Lugging is bad, but harmonics at higher speeds also can bust a crank. It depends on so many variables - speed, load, flat or hilly driving, driving styles, wheel size and final drive ratio. But most of them do go eventually. I'm sure you can handle it.

Vance, Russ-
Do you folks know of parts suppliers for the 650?  I am spoiled by my KMZ supplier and his quick shipments.
Might be an idea for one to have a crank and associated bearings and rotating bits ready.

SB:
Crank shaft failures are this main issue I was thinking about with the 650 Ural engines. BTDT, as have many others. Vance: Several times!
The higher running speeds here just seem to kill the 650 cranks.
And I do not know of US-based 650 engine parts suppliers. That's one of the reasons I went to the 750 cc engine, and I've been pleased with the results.
Parts might be available from European suppliers, but a used replacement 650 crank shaft may never be good idea!
As Vance said: "I'm sure you can handle it."

Folks after a few weeks with this "new" bike- I am still in love with her..

She has an entire song list of mechanical  sounds; I love them all..She rolls over most times with one kick. Close the choke shutter and leave the choke levers alone.. She bounces to life with a clatter of valves and timing chest noise.

Lots to look at this winter. Timing chest is much louder than the KMZ machines. The gearbox sounds like a rock press, but I suspect will become sweeter around another 5k Kms.

Quite the machine...And I do love her so....

Goodnite gents...

BTW-
Anyone know of a source of a petcock for my 95 Tourist? She dribbles out the knob.  Do not know if they are the same threads as KMZ.. My tank is full...

When your fuel level is low enough to remove the petcock, consider simply disassembling it and cleaning the innards.
'Might be the easy solution. It's worked for me on the older style petcocks.
