Got my first Russian bike, a nice blue/silver 2006 Ural Troyka.

So question about it, are the throttle grip  on a Ural set up typically to roll forward to give it power, or roll back (as in what I am used to with all the other bikes I've owned)  this one is definitely set currently to roll forward.  Not sure if that was a previous owner choice, or is that how Urals roll :)  

Haven't had a chance to tear apart the throttle cable housing on the handlebars, any idea if are they swappable from push to pull easily?  I am definitely more comfortable with a roll back  style, but I suppose I could learn to deal with a roll forward style if I need to.

Should roll top back for increase in throttle.
All of them.

well the Po definitely reversed it then.  Still trying to figure out of its an easily swapped from push to pull, or if he did some custom work to get it reversed.

I would think if you simply remove the housing you could "re-wind" the cable the other way. On most old housings this is possible, or .. The "tube" is wrong...new 7/8 throttle tubes are inexpensive.

iv never seen anyone do that before ...maybe they had hand problems that would only allow them to use the throttle in that way ...like was said above ..it's an easy fix ..just open the housing and swop it around

Thanks, was an easy fix.  Throttle grip had positions to set it up either way.  Not sure why he had it put that way, but was a quick fix at least.
