  1. Hello Vance, hi Russ. Havn't been here for long time. Eric, I have a pair of white ones. Used...
  2. Nice facelift. 👍 Things look different.
  3. Russ, good to know you are doing better. I wish you improve and get to 100% strength and enjoy the pain free life!

  6. I kept and used the BMW exhaust, ignition coils (attached to each frame L&R downtubes). The air filter housing and the filter were purchased from auto store. Can't remember now...but I suspect it was from the AutoZone. Let me see if I can post a picture for entertainment. I now regret selling that bike, but I was in rush for something heavier and faster:-) and 1998 Honda Valkyrie with Campion Escort sidecar replaced the Ural for another 4 years of fun. It was a tourer, which could do 70MPh all day. Gas mileage was 20-23 per gal. And I had a 5 gal. reserve tank in sidcar trunk with
  7. Gene is great. I had purchased some parts...Ural gearbox, etc. Received everything fast. I did the BMW conversion in my garage. Bought both donor bikes (BMW R80/7 & R100RT) in good running condition to hear and test the engine. Gene (Holopaw) Langford shipped a new Ural Gearbox to Richard Winter, who helped me with gearbox (welding/grinding modification to meet BMW engine) and new BMW /2 clutch plate. That probably was 2005-2006.
  8. If it was in near proximity I would've been interested. I had a 1999 Deco in same colors and loved how it handled. But then it got a engine as an upgrade...BMW R80, then an R100...
  9. JonLilley, It's time to upgrade to 2020. I get very much satisfied when I kick start a Ural. That's the part of fun game. I had three different carbureted 650cc Urals and had no problem kickstarting them at 1st or 2nd kick, so there is no learning or technique I need to learn to kickstart a 650 or 750 pre 2013 bike. However, I couldn't kickstart 2014 EFI m70. And yes, I turned over the engine a few times before trying to give a good "momentum" spin to the gearbox from the top of that compression... no luck. Especially Retro and M70 kick lever hits the bumper-stop and won't let the gearbox sp
  10. I guess the demographics are changing. Ural owners are "becoming younger" and they do everything now on their phones on Facebook.
  11. Marco, Compression test would've been the first thing I would do on a "new" to me Ural. I would then clean the gas tank, clean or swap the petcock, fuel lines, then do throttle cables adjustments, carb cleaning, synchronization, etc. I would've also run fuel lines to carbs without filters, and try testing the bike without air filter at least to make sure filters are not restricted. If you used the kill switch and coasted at highest speed in 4th gear...what color were your plugs? I know you are looking to purchase a new coil. Do you have good spark on both sides? There are diagnostic spa
