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.

Monster if you can come up with a better shock let me know. When I rode mine loaded to the Artic it was Ok as was expected. But while it is a serviceable ride , it is not great.. Going on the gravel over the bigger bumps she develops a wild front end wobble at times. A bit disconcerting . But hey It a Ural.

Want to come to Canada let me know. Eh! Cheers

Your logic just destroyed the entire car shock absorber market. Best you don't tell them they're wasting their time...

That video shows well what the front wheel is doing, but it doesn't give the slightest hint what the bike is doing.
