Just out of curiosity, will this retro to the 650's as well? I don't have my Ural (yet) and wasn't sure of the similarities/differences between the 650/750 cases and oiling systems.

No, it only fits the 750.

Because cartridge filters suck. This is an unexpected surprise from IMWA. Can't wait for it to be released.

That was the biggest hassle of oil changes on the Ural. I think it would be one of the first things I bought (if not THE first) if I had a pre-2014 750.

I think it's really cool that some of the new Ural tech is going to be available to the current 750 rigs.

That being said, I don't have any issues with the current filter setup and will put my $$ towards other things for my rig.

I don't have issues and I use the "difficult" Emglo filters.
Yet I would still consider the spin-on upgrade for a few reasons.

First, convenience. Since I end up changing oil every 5000kms and when I ride hard off-road, being able to just reach down and spin off a filter makes life that much easier.

Also, the stock filter set-up is a little messier when changing, you have the oil soaked cartridge to handle and the filter cap to clean. If the engine is hot, increase the difficulty factor and expect a burn from the exhaust and or cross pipe.

Next, the filter being outside the engine will help with cooling. Install an aluminum finned reusable oil filter and help your oil and engine, while never having to buy a filter again.

Last, there is a report the cover will come with ports that will easily allow installation of external cooling. Look at Windmill's pics, at the bottom of the cover. ;)

Don't use the Emgo filters but gotta agree with the convenience aspect.
I have never understood the problem dealing with the hot cross over pipe or exhaust. I just wait a few minutes after a ride before I change the oil-never got a burn.
The cooling part interests me as does the potential for an oil cooler to be added.

The possibility of an oil cooler is being explored,

It isn't leaking, Its just the residual oil from the gear tower that dripped out during conversion

Help

Hi Windmill, I also sent you a private mail. I got what appears to be a
complete kit to upgrade my oil filter; before I start tearing things apart
I need to know a few things and since you have already done this I hope
you are willing to share with me your tips.
My kit includes a large paper gasket and a rubber seal of some sort. The paper gasket place is clear enough but I would like to know where the rubber seal goes and in what direction.
What goes uder the round cup with the URAL logo that sits above filter? Also, does the ignition need to be disturbed during the installation? Is there a place for the wires connected to the ignition? Did you use any liquid sealant between the cases and the paper gasket? As you can tell
I am not an expert but I am ready to learn. I hope you are willing to help.

It would be real nice if it had a protected cap to go over the spin on to prevent damage from rocks when out in the wilds. Like the Dempster Highway.
