His stock 2006 GearUp front end with original shocks seems to be handling things just fine.

have said it before, but I'm not sure exactly what a "better" shock will do for a Ural.
On a 2 wheeler, where compression and rebound are much more critical to the tracking and handling of the bike, I can see spending the loot.
But on Ural, which is heavy, cumbersome and the suspension movement doesn't change the bike's lean/direction of travel, I'm very skeptical.

Also the original poster should be posting over at Soviet Steeds and Russian Iron if he wants maximum participation and feedback.
