Still on Ural #1, too.

I have a 2003 (actually a 2002 CMSI Ural, sold and titled as a 2003) Ural Tourist. Six years this August.

Three alternators, one electronic ignition rotor, and she's been running without a problem for the last two years (knock on wood). Just adapted the 160mm (7 1/2 inch) Bosch BMW motorcycle headlight to the Windjammer fairing I have on it.

Howdy All,

Having a dedicated Ural forum would be cool but I wouldn't advise holding your breath in anticipation of it happening; it took a LONG time just to get the "Hacks" forum as many wouldn't then nor today recognize our sickness as a valid motorcycle related form of transport or amusement.

Hi Mr Cobb,I think you may have read the original post wrong-

"With Urals becoming so popular it occured to me that maybe you guys might like your own specific Ural thread like many of the other forums seem to have.If not then we'll get AceRph to delete it.Just a thought."

This is the thread.

Cheers
A2

As one of the original settlers of 'Little Siberia', I can't wait to go back. The little hill in the corner of the field is just the right size to bump start a tempermental Ural in the morning.

As an added bonus any Ural owner attending this event will become an official member of the Riders of The Eastern Front(ROTEF).

Just recieved my "New to me" 98 Ural Sportsman after years of BMW's

MY they are ah... rough . No offence to the foil heads and I have only ridden it 20 Km ( before the charging light started winking at me. and the rear brake heated up and smoked and.....

WEll it has had little use and will take some time to sort out. The winking lights I fixed by cleaning all connections and using dielectric grease. The brake easy ajustment.

I should have done a full tune up and fluid change - and I will before I go much further.

I have owned 6 other hacks Two custom hightech ones .

and Honestly I have never owned one that got so much attention and I only rode it to the gas station. Once. I'll have to make hand outs , The Harley guy did not know there WERE Russian bikes ! " No really it was made in Russia- Honest"

WE only need to continue this thread.

Chuck
