With the clutch done, it was time to install the engine in the frame. I also test fitted the tranny but it will have to come back out to fit the clutch actuating rod and other pieces. Here is a pic from earlier in the week.



Yesterday it was raining again and seemed like a good day to spend a decent amount of time on the MV. My Father is in town so I had a helping hand.
Quite a bit of wrangling took place to get the tranny installed with the actuating pieces in place an properly lined up. The tip if the actuating rod is square and fits into a square hole in the pressure plate. To make certain it was inserted into the hole we made a tool out of a butt splice and a screw so I could turn the rod after the tranny was in place and feel it slide into the hole.


Note all of the tools used...

Time to install the driveshaft which requires removing the final drive. This will also allow phasing all of the shafts.



Installed the ignition, carbs and tank. What now... Time to kick it...
Kicked at bit and had a few puffs, then I remembered I had held off torquing the heads to spec. With that done, she fired on the second kick! Cylinder temps monitored; both were within 10 degrees on one another, no strange sounds - good news!

Now a multitude of details to attend to before the ride...

It is getting there. The clutch actuating lever was homemade when I received the bike. Seemed to work OK but was ugly and had a non-standard hook-up for the clutch cable.

I sourced a standard clutch lever and installed. However the standard clutch cable mount was missing. The original one is quite a pain as it is really only two semi-flat pieces of stock and the cable is sandwiched between them. You really have to tighten everything to tight and the cable still slips sometimes. With the part missing and fact that I dont like the design anyway, I decided to fab me a cable mount.
Start with a closely sized roll-pin (need a gap to get the cable through) and some flat stock. I had to drill out the roll-pin just a bit to be able to fit the metal portion of the cable inside. Cut to length then drilled and tapped for a set screw; the mounting point with the flat stock. A quick weld and a test fit - nice.

Some paint then installed - Ill get a proper set screw at some point.

With the clutch done, it was time for a short test ride! Ran great! Back in the garage for some tilt alignment then back for another test ride - pulls nicely and I would say has as much get-up-and-go as my OHV Dnepr.

Current state - the race look :) Still with incorrect wheels.


Next will be fitting the sidecar body and getting the correct wheels installed...

Too cool. Good to see the practical application of the "if it's worth doing, it's worth doing right" theory.

Good job, looking forward to seeing more pictures and tales of the rebuild/upgrade/fix process.

Took some tinkering to get final details under control
- brake lights working
- u-joints serviced
- wheels swapped
etc

Now deemed roadworthy. Here are a couple comparison shots from when I first bought the bike home and now over a year later.

Funny how all the work is not reflected in the photos

Just had to drive it up a dirt pile...


I plan to ride it for a while and let the parts do their final meshing. Then I have a couple projects I want to complete. First the final drive locking device installation and two wheels (sidecar and spare) need to be swapped for correct type (this will require re-stringing a couple of hubs and rims I have laying around).

Surprises so far - how easy this thing starts! Damn, probably just cursed myself...

Damn, it still looks like a well used dirty old bike. Well done! Because that's the way I prefer them to look.

I love the patina on that bike! Please don't paint it.

What's going on with it as of late? Would love a ride report and/or details of how it rides, shifts, brakes, etc.

Reference Manual?

I know this thread has been dormant for a while, but I am suffering through a long Central European winter and some of the small issues with my bike are beginning to beg for some attention so I have been searching for other KMZ owners. I really appreciate the detail of your thread. It is really hard to find well documented SV information. That leads to my real question, what reference books, or other information, do you use? I have a '67 K750 and I am struggling to find reliable info. I have the Russian side valve motorcycle book, but it is all in Russian. So, the tables and illustrations are great, but it is nothing great. Anyway, great build, and I really enjoy seeing other vintage bikes that are actually used! Here's mine:

Thanks for the quick answer! I do love that site. I guess I was looking for an easy way out of searching all the time, like a book. I will keep searching there. Thanks.

Nice project!!!

I have a Ural M72 from the 1940's with a Dnepr gearbox with reverse.
A Dnepr and Ural frame look the same, but the Dnepr is +/- 20mm longer!
Pistons from a Fiat are going to fitted, the pistons from Russia that I've seen where made from recycled tinfoil
I'm thinking about to fit a DC generator from a VW beetle (12V instead of the 6V with very low power) the output shafts are the same diameter.
There are gears for sale for the 4th gear with a better ratio, less revelations.
Also a deeper aluminium sump, more oil and better cooling.

If anyone wants more info, manual, etc. just let me know.



Now some fun pic's:

I know it's over a year ago, but this slipped past me. Great work getting it back up and running.

What is that large blocky thing obscuring the upper portion of your headlight?

This thing looks really good at going in straight lines. Seriously though, how the F*&^ are you supposed to turn this thing?
