I only have my Ural since last December and 4000kms.... Only one arm fully functional (talk
about upper body strengh!) and I love it... I am trying to check everything all the time and have no probs whatsoever: does not use oil, tires do not deflate, valves do not run out of adjustment, spark plugs fire etc. it came with 3 years warranty and the only pieces changed were a brake switch and a clutch arm release. I am afraid (or happy!) but it looks like Urals are not the special elite bikes they used to be!!!
