    Donald Trump

    We are living in interesting times. Donald Trump as potential President, the UK possibly leaving the EU and here in Australia our politicians are constantly squabbling amongst themselves and throwing out their leaders. We are now on our sixth prime minister since I moved here 10 years ago. Five of them were within a space of five years.

    Donald Trump

    I've noticed that. I think there are a few people who avoid spending too much time over there just for that reason.

    Donald Trump

    I've noticed the lack of conversation about Donald Trump on this forum. Being a mainly US membership, is this a taboo subject around here as the rest of the world are finding the run up to the US elections more interesting than it's ever been.

    Why!

    Even allowing for the current exchange rate, Urals prices in the US are still a lot lower than they are here in Australia, Possibly because of the smaller numbers imported here.

    Why!

    $12,000 for a new Ural! Is that in the US? Down here they go for around $20,000. A price I'm not prepared to pay.
  6. It's not too difficult to do. Have a look at this. http://myural.com/servicing_shock_absorbers.htm
  7. I'm back. It took me over three years, due to the cost of parts and shipping, to get her running again after the alternator gear dropped into the timing gears.
  8. Without saying who you are or how to contact you (since you haven't visited this forum since the 9th December), It's a bit difficult to volunteer our services.
  9. $1700 for parts and shipping plus $300 in fees and tax when it arrived in Australia.
  10. Any ideas about how they did that with the air intake under the water?
  11. I had the shaft break and drop the gear into the timing gears. I now need to replace the timing gears as well as the alternator.
  12. I use it on just about anything with a thread. I also use it on electrical connections.
  13. My own experience with a late 80s Dnepr was not a good one. I had problems with pistons and gugeon pins breaking, and had several cylinders develop cracks. This may have been partly due to the speeds that I rode it at but I also think there were some quality issues.
