I find that on mine to get it moving I have to give it a good amount of throttle, maybe 2/3 open, and then release the clutch about 2/3 of the way too. Does yours seem like that too?
That's one fine looking Deco. The Deco's have always been one of my favorites.

Mine has gotten 28 miles per gallon each of the three times I've checked it. Have you checked yours yet?

OH GOD! Don't start a Ural MPG discussion. That is like asking about oil.

I haven't checked the mpg as of yet. We will see once the jetting is done. I am curious myself.

That is a great looking deco. Looks to be in really good shape. I like how the old 650s had the carb inside the engine.

I apologize. I should have said air cleaner and intake. Looks like yours has the area behind the engine where the air gets sucked into the back of the engine then to the carbs.

New To Me 2001 Ural Patrol

I haven't updated my post in awhile due to work travel. I was in South Korea for 2 weeks working on an installation.
I finally got around to the hard starting issue and played around with the jets a little. The jets I settled with are a 40 pilot jet and a 130 main jet. I am 1.75 turns out on the pilot screw. So far this seems to be working very well. I have better acceleration and it holds speeds at 50-55 much better. So far the plugs look really good and the engine runs much cooler than when I had the stock 38 pilot and 118 main.
The hard starting issue I was having was due to my valves not having any gap. I adjusted them when I first bought the rig and they tightened right up in only 2-300 km. I couldn't believe it when I took the covers off. Once I readjusted them it fired right up. No playing with the throttle like I had to before. They must have been tight enough to have the valve slightly open and I was loosing compression. I'm glad nothing else major happened due to them being so tight. It also does not diesel when shutting off like it used to. Since my carb adjustments were not making it any easier to start I figured I'd go back to square 1. I knew the timing was ok so my sqaure 1 was the valves. This time I made them a little looser so hopefully they will stay that way for a bit.
Since the bike seemed to be running and starting better I decided to take the Ural to work today. It ran really well and I was impressed with the changes in acceleration as well as steady idle at stops. About half way to work I had my first flat on the pusher. I could feel the back sway a bit as I rounded a corner and it was confirmed once I stopped. I usually have my tools with me but today I did not. I only had my leatherman. After a little fussing I was able to use the leatherman to get the Axle clamp bolt off by using the inner jaws on the leatherman and taping it with a brick which was in a pile nearby. I happened to stop near a house that was not finished for i'd say 15 years. The taps from the brick was just enough to break the nut loose. After that I needed something to loosen the axle. After looking around I found some 6" carriage bolts on the ground small enough to fit in the hole on the axle. I removed the cotter pin on the castle nut and used the leatherman to hold the castle nut. I had to wedge the pliers of the leatherman into the axle joint and put a a lot of pressure to hold the nut while I loosened the axle. Once loose I was able to pull the axle out and put on the spare. I was pretty close to calling AAA but figured if I thought it thru I might be able to make it work with what I had. Below is a picture of the tire being changed and the other shows the house in the background that was never finished but had tons of stuff inside and around it, which is how I was able to find the brick and carriage bolts.
Lesson learned, keep the tools in the sidecar and don't leave home without them. I also will be changing the tubes out for some heavy duty ones to help prevent any flats. I did not see anything in the tires so I'm guessing its probably a pinched russian tube.
Looks like we may have some snow coming tomorrow night so I will have to see how the 2WD works in the snow. Been looking forward to trying that.

Rob,
Neat job of changing out the pusher flat with a Leatherman and junk from that poor house that should be finished.

Your 2001 Patrol looks in new condition.
